Capon Springs Rurality

When we were in Capon Springs recently, I followed a sign to the post office and found this nicely landscaped church, Willow Chapel UMC.

Inspired Sunday
The post office itself turned out to be a no-nonsense brick building.

This part of West Virginia is hilly and rural. I'll show you a few more buildings.

I see on the Barn linkup that Tom is going to discontinue it as a blog hop although he will still post barn photos. I remember posting barn pictures in the Rurality Blog Hop back when it was hosted by Madge Bloom. Around five years ago she stopped offering it, and I started sharing rural scenes with Tom's Barn Collective.  But participation has fallen off,  partly because photographers are sharing on other platforms instead of blogs.

I continue to stubbornly blog and I will continue to share rural scenes on a regular basis.


  1. I'm so glad to hear you're planning to keep blogging. Me too, though a bit more limited in scope (and I still am using my comfortable old system). I enjoy the barn photos, as well as all the rural beauty you find! thanks!

  2. Hello, great variety of photos, with the pretty Church, post office and barns. Take care! Enjoy your day! Wishing you a happy new week!

  3. ...the post office sure is a throwback in time. It's always nice to find a quilt block. The hay wagon looks to be the same size as the small red barn and I'm in Hog Heaven.

  4. Lovely rural scenes. I like the quilt block on the barn.

  5. Cool shots and I w
    too will continue to share barn shot on my blog

  6. A lovely selection of scenes here ...

    All the best Jan

  7. I'm glad you 'continue to stubbornly blog' and post these delightful rural scenes.
