52 Weeks - Week 15 {Aged Beauty}

Sally's prompt this week is to find some Aged Beauty.
Something from the past, an old building,
a vintage treasure from a flea market, maybe even a
wonderful piece of jewelry from our jewelry box.

I opted for some rust!
Glorious rust!
I love this fence. I drive past it twice a day to and from

You can see it in the background there.
I am drawn to this spot every spring as these daffodils
bloom all over the hill.


Look at the size of this one. There are a few odd ones
that are HUGE! 

Now, if you saw my "Flower Stalking - April" post
on Facebook, you know where these were taken.

(I have a habit of stalking flowers in my neighbors
yards and neighborhood and very carefully taking shots)

I was not driving!
I parked my car, right next to the
Secret Service Patrol Car, 
and took the pictures.

They happen to be on the grounds of 
the Embassy of Israel.

Thank you Mr. Secret Service officer for letting me!

Please hop on over to Sally's blog to see what 
wonderful Aged Beauty folks have found this week.
