back o’the old cotton mill
Yesterday I took a day off from all chores to just drive around and explore Collin County. I’ve been here for almost ten months and haven’t really got to know the county that well. Seems like I have too much to do or it’s pouring down rain or the thermometer’s sweating at a hundred degrees when I do have the time. A cool front dropped in a few days ago and produced beautiful blue skies yesterday.
I got psyched by creating my Five Mile Cemetery website, so I’m thinking about doing another cemetery project. I was searching for a cemetery that’s on the map just south of the old cotton mill in McKinney but couldn’t find it. I did find some beautiful pastures, friendly horses, a peacock guarding a driveway, some indifferent llamas and a pen full of pot-bellied pigs. The light was so nice behind the cotton mill I wished I wasn’t shooting through a barbed-wire fence, but the wildflowers on the wire blurred nicely with the blues of the windows. Maybe another day…..the mill’s so close I don’t know why I don’t visit more often.
