My sister came for a short visit this weekend. We thought that spending the day together with our cameras would be a lot of fun!! It was!! You have to understand, when we get together we laugh and have such a good time!! We decided to go to the Old Mill in central Arkansas. I went there in early April when the spring flowers were just beautiful!! You can see those pictures and read about the Mill's history here. So, I'll just give a short explanation of what it is. The mill is a historic re-creation of an 1880's water-powered grist mill. It is in the opening scenes of the classic movie "Gone With The Wind" which was released in 1939. It is believed to be the only remaining structure from the movie.
In the summer it's lacks the flowers that are so beautiful in the spring, but the plants are lush and very beautiful!
The last time I went I took a lot of macro shots, so I decided to get the bigger picture!
Well, except for this one I couldn't resist the beautiful Oak Leaf Hydrangea that was gorgeous!! The petals look so delicate!
The yellows and oranges in these flowers were so different from the pastels flowers of spring.
The slow creaking of the waterwheel is so peaceful. You can sit on a bench, just listen to it and relax.
There's a great bridge that crosses the water. It's made from sculptured concrete.
This shot was taken off the bride looking down the waterway.
