Dawes Arboretum: Country Life

As we toured the Dawes Arboretum,  we came to this tractor and driver. I thought at first that the driver might be an iron sculpture. On closer inspection, it was a threadbare scarecrow!

This type of oil well was common in this area for many decades. 

This was the country home of the Dawes family.

Here is the ornate well beside the house.

The gardens around the house were so charming.

Mmmmm, lambs' ears. They don't do well in our heat and humidity, so seeing a bed of them this large was such a treat.
