It is so good to see your new work here MaryAlice you have had some great weather, unlike me when I took this similar shot last Sasturday!

Here's hoping you are well and enjoying life my dear Sweet Georgia Girl!

Best wishes as ever!

Hi MaryAlice! I, too, have been out in the woods recently and took a very similar shot this week. The title of mine, however, prompted all sorts of n-n-nonsense, so please excuse! Like this. Best wishes from Beara, Clive

Greetings, Sababoy, and thank you for visiting. I'm so happy that you enjoyed this shot, and thank you for your kind words. It's good to hear from you, and I hope you are doing well. THanks again for stopping by. :)

Mike, What has happened to your book? I keep waiting for news! ....Nothing. Are there still issues? Well, as always, it's wonderful to hear from you, and thank you for visiting my new postings. I'm glad you enjoyed this, and thank you again for dropping by. I do hope your weather improves soon, and I'll come over to see just how bad it's been shortly. Take care, and give me an update on the book when you have a minute! My best to you. :)

Lloyd, Indeed, it is VERY green, and so lovely! The day was pale, and it made everything seem even greener in comparison. These remains are from an old textile mill that used to be set right here next to the creek. At one time is was a HUGE production, but the entire thing was burned to the ground many, many years ago. I have only been able to see pictures of what it once was. Union raiders destroyed it all in 1865. Although rebuilt, the company ceased operations in 1911. Now this rock foundation is all that can be seen today. Initially the mill only made yarns, but later wove sheeting and shirting. Thanks so much for your interest in this neat place. It's always a pleasure talking to you, my friend! I hope you're keeping warm! :)

Clive, Greetings, and thank you for popping over for a visit. I can't wait to come over and see what you've been snapping shots of in the woods this week! I shall be by shortly.

Thank you all again for visiting. Best regards from Georgia,

Mary Alice

This is beautiful!! So lush and green! =] This reminds me a lot of Kentucky! Mainly because of this wall. I was told that when they first settled in Kentucky the shepherds would use it to keep their animals in their land, and even today almost anywhere you go into the country or into the woods, you'll still find these. I don't see them very often in Georgia so it's really cool to see you post one. Do you know if they used them for the same purpose? Cause I've always been kinda curious about them. Anyway, it's nice to be back on Panoramio! I have lots to catch up on on your page! I'm gonna have fun =] Thanks for sharing this wonderful shot and a piece of Georgia's roots! Listening to "Hold Me Together" by Royal Tailor! Keep Rockin'!

Greeting MaryAlice a long time.

Beautiful summer woods, and a very nice old-fashioned stone fence. L

Best wishes in the autumn. Arto from Finland

It is amazing how you find these old abandoned industrial buildings that are gradually fading into the natural surroundings, Mary Alice. Another fascinating shot.

Hey Mary Alice, here we go....

...though this one seems to be an old Mill it looks almost lie the remains of former periods over here. One day it will look like old roman remains over here :)
