Linking up with Roan for Rubbish Tuesday.  As Roan says:

The idea is to post a photograph of anything old and/or deteriorating i.e. house, barn, outbuilding, something rusty, antiques, interesting junk, or something in pristine condition, but just plain old. 

I've kind of being focusing on the farm for the last few weeks.  That's partly because I spend a lot of time there and partly because there are always new things to take photographs of.

It's looking so beautiful at the moment that I've included a few 'other' photos along with the rubbish ones today, hope nobody minds.

First of all, some REAL rubbish - tidying up in the garden.  The hedge in the background is due for it's twice yearly trim, it's a huge job as it stretches right around the lawn.  The hedge is pretty old so hopefully it will fall under both the 'old' and soon to be 'pristine' category.

I love the way the light catches this wood pile.  The wood is from various trees that have either fallen down or have needed limbs taking off around the farm, some incredibly old.  We spent a lovely sunny day a couple of weeks ago riding all over the fields in a tractor gathering it up ready to be sawn into logs for the wood burner.

And these are 'just because' photos from the garden:

Deadly Nightshade growing in the hedge - SO pretty!

So much lawn rubbish at our place too. Many loads have been taken to the pile. We were behind. Beautiful flowers!

Love the wheelbarrow shot and agree the lighting on the wood pile is very nice. I love, love, love roses and that first one is my favorite color. Thanks so much for playing along.

Looks like you worked very hard tidying up the garden! Do I spy morning glories in the background? They're my all-time favorite weed/flower. :)

Beautiful flowers in your garden - really ♥ the peach-colored rose.

Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my RT post.

Happy weekend to you -
