Да.... Иногда ТАМ что-то творится.... СПАСИБО, Лена!!!

A lot of thanks, Peter!!!!

Привет, Толик! Что ты!!!! Страшно не бывает - я же прям со двора снимаю. Так красиво, что я обо всё забываю. Вчера тряхнула стариной - взобралась на верхушку минарета. Винтовая лестница с ооочень высокими каменными ступенями. Минарет старый, когда-то был самым высоким на Ближнем Востоке. Не в форме карандаша, а похож на колокольню... Построен до крестоносцев. Загружу всё....

Ewo, to taka natura :), a ja złapałam ją przez przednią szybkę auta, którym jechałam z córką :) Pozdrawiam

Сергей Фендриков (Fe… thank you so much for your kind words.

Hello. Michael Thank you for your visit and to estimate my photos. Greenwood Plantation, one of the Barrow dynasty of homes in West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, was originally built in 1830 by William Ruffin Barrow. In the 1830's, Greenwood, operating as a 3000 acre cotton plantation, provided the Barrow's with a comfortable living. In 1850, Barrow switched to sugarcane. This was advantagous to the Barrow's as Greenwood grew to 12,000 acres with 750 slaves. In the later part of the 1850's, the northern states and the abolitionist began talk of freeing the slaves. Barrow entered politics and became one of the instigator's of Louisiana's Seccession from the Union. Because of his involvement in the Succession, Barrow became a target for the Union troops. On March 22, 1862, William Ruffin Barrow died. After the Civil War, the conditions of the Reconstruction government, coupled with no labor, forced the Barrow family to sell the plantation. The new owners fared no better than the Barrow's. As a result, no one could keep the home for any length of time until Mr. and Mrs. Frank Percy bought the home in 1915. With the help of their large family, they worked Greenwood Plantation as a family farm. The mansion became their home. Once again, Greenwood prospered. Mr. and Mrs. Percy opened the home to the public from 1940 until 1960. On August 1, 1960, lightning struck the home and destroyed it.
Thank you for that link and your visit.

Best greetings from France, city Narbonne, My Map, Roger.
