A visit to Rutherfordton, NC

I always enjoy visiting my in-laws in Rutherfordton, NC.  There never seems to be a shortage of things to photograph, especially when my nieces are in town too!

This time of year, it is not an exaggeration to say that the number of daisies blooming on their property is easily in the millions!

It is also Strawberry Season!

Like any good redneck family, there is never a shortage of rusty things around.  Since rust is one of this months photo contest themes, I decided to see what I could find

Aunt Stella passed away a few years ago, but I still like to explore around her old homestead a short distance down the road from Amy's parents.

I took a few other random shots before enjoying a nice meal with Amy's family

After dinner we took a ride to the Dairy-O to get ice cream
