FOTD #26: Mortimer Farms in Dewey Humbolt, AZ

This month, since TreeSquares is over, I decided to participate in Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge – (FOTD).  Like Becky B, Cee offers us the freedom to post every day or when we feel like it.  I made the mistake of classifying my trees as flowers for about half the month last month. So this month – no trees. (maybe). Cee’s FOTD challenge accepts:

WHO’S HEARD OF MORTIMER FARMS?

The good news is that if you travel from Prescott to Sedona, you drive right by Mortimer Farms. We’ve been doing it for almost a year now, meaning to stop when we had a chance. It looks like a beginning days Knotts Berry Farm.

We were on our way down to Sedona with Terri Webster Schrandt and her husband when suddenly Vince veered off the road into the parking lot. It was Sunday afternoon almost 90 degrees and only one parking spot in the entire parking lot. Terri and I got it. The men were nice enough to go fetch.

FOTD #26

In spite of the heat, the flowers along the fence were vibrant.

If it had been spring before my experience with bunny rabbits nibbling my plants down to the nub, I would have had a cart piled high with these beauties. Instead I got my camera out to capture their beauty to enjoy during the cold winter months.

Thursday Trios

Along the fence was a fabulous old tractor, so this next three pictures of wheels apply towards Carol’s Thursday Trios Photo Challenge. I don’t know what these wheels process, and the attendants were way too busy to ask, so next time I go in the next year of two I’ll find out for you. I looked online, but to no avail.

Mama Cormier’s Thursday Trios is not up yet, but you will enjoy An Explosion of Wacky Birds.

  1. Lovely pics.

    The rusty red wheels are pulleys, probably part of a drive chain to drive a piece of an equipment-maybe a vibrating screen or a vibro feeder. They certainly are a good subject for photography. 🙂

    • I’ve never heard of a vibro feeder. Looking at images on Google, it might have been a gigantic one. I will have to call them. I want to make another visit when it isn’t so busy. Sunday afternoon is not the time to go. 🙂 Thanks for your comment, GDUTTA. 🙂

In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
