Things I Saw Near Woodstock

Shenandoah County, Virginia

Signs crowned with honeysuckle, Lupton Road.

I went there last week for the first outdoor meeting of Friends of Seven Bends State Park. I took this group photo using the panorama feature on my cell phone. If you look closely, you may notice that the camera gave Ranger Megan an extra arm! 

The river is the North Fork of the Shenandoah, which is adjacent to the park.

Here are some wild daisies to rest your eyes before you look at the next picture. 

I certainly did a double take the first time I saw that falling ladder. I wonder if someone made that display for April Fools Day and decided to leave it up. The sign on the building is for a lawn care business. 

The final photo is a bright stuffed animal in a second-hand store.

  1. I wonder if the ladder and figure are there to commemorate an event. :-)

  2. Good to see the Friends of the state park meeting in person again.

  3. ...sometimes too many signs make for a confusing situation!

  4. An interesting collection of photos!
    Have a blessed day!

  5. Another enjoyable post...hope you have a good day!

  6. wild daisies look so attractive.... love it

  7. At first I thought the figure really was stuck there withput the ladder. :)

  8. That ladder trick would make you look twice.

  9. The ladder photo is funny after you realize it is not real!
