Rural Jacksonville

Last weekend we went with a friend to visit her family’s farm. There’s an old barn on the property that I’ve driven by before while exploring the back roads around Jacksonville, Illinois, but I hadn’t realized we knew the family who owned it. The barn is over 100 years old and unfortunately it’s starting to bow out and they don’t think they’ll be able to save it. I’m glad we were able to get some photos before it will be too late.

On the way there, we stumbled across a field of sunflowers and while at the property, I discovered wildflowers growing up through an old truck tailgate and wild cats and kittens that were on the property.
