Different Stuff

I love these little blooms on this flower. I think this is called a shamrock plant. Not sure, but it has the leaves like a shamrock. These blooms are very small and delicate.








In the next picture you see is the old train tunnel that usually is under water. When the lake is up all the way you can not see this at all. This is at Burnside, KY. When the lake was built the city of Burnside had to be moved to higher ground. Now that the lake has dropped down the old road can be seen plus some of the old foundations. Kind of interesting and especially to the folks who lived here all their lives and can remember it like it used to be before the lake. That was way before my time!! Just so you know!!




The next picture I took on a recent drive. Hail and Paradise were the two areas I was in. I drove through Hail but Paradise was my destination and that's where I ended up. I hadn't been out there in a long time and it had really changed quite a bit. I had to take a picture when I saw this sign!
Folks, it's Friday, so have a great weekend!

Rachel,
In Pennsylvania, you have to go through Intercourse to get to Paradise. Those wacky Amish and their town names.

Really like that picture. Please tell me you took that picture of the shamrock plant awhile ago. I really don't want to hear that you have green leaves and flowers right now!!

Oh wow, how very interesting about that old train tunnel...I can imagine how weird it must be to see it again, and some foundations, when the water is right down!! LOL love that sign..I had heard about those town names, so funny! xox

I enjoyed reading all of your back posts about the lake...It is very interesting. I haven't been down that way since summer, so I know I would be very surprised to see how the lake looks now.

Those town names are very funny.

Love the sign. Love that plant, but I think I had better stand clear of plants. I don't have very great luck with them, somehow they all die, even Cacti. That train tunnel is really cool, and WOW! the level of the lake is really down!

Oh! I have a picture from SC that shows a sign saying Clinton (with an arrow pointing one way) and Prosperity (with an arrow pointing in the opposite direction). It was funny to see that when I was there a few years ago.

How interesting about the train tunnel and old town's foundations!
We have a town nearby that they did the same thing to. The lake and dam now cover it and it's never been exposed again to my knowledge..

Hi
Rachel, our favorite place to fish and boat is the same kind of man made lake. In the late summer when the irrigators have it pulled down you must be careful in the shallows or you'll hit the old foundations. Great photo's and story. You are a busy gal.

LOL, LOL...Love that sign. What a great name for a place, too, Paradise...! If you lived there and people asked "Where do you live?" and then you said Paradise, they would probably say..."How nice that you think where you live is so wonderful, but what is the name of the town?"

That tunnel is certainly a strange reminder of how things use to be before that lake....!
