Old-time farm equipment and hay bales!

On our way into Constance Bay, we always pass these dudes. Now, the people are mannequins, but the horses, for example, look like horse statues.
I always do a double take. It looks like a group of old time, pioneer families on their way west.
Now, hubby grew up on a working farm in the 50s –they didn't have electricity or running water. He said they had all of this old equipment, and it was older than neighbouring farmer's equipment at that time. This looks like a museum.
One looks closer...

The most amazing display we've ever seen!

Then there is this spot
Totem poles and bird houses

Someone told me about the Montana What the Hay! contest.

"What the Hay!" began in 1989 as a joke between two neighbors. There were no rules or prizes. . . just a personal one-upsmanship between friends. It was done with such humor that another local decided to make a contest out of it.

Last fall, this plant nursery always does up a wonderful display.

The first bales are being taken off of the fields in Ontario in June. This is a cow!

That farm museum sure brought back memory blasts from my past! Great capture, Jennifer!

I guess that's the Pinhey Point museum. I've never been out that way.

That is really cool. It gets people to take a look and then they might stay longer.
