This old house sits out in the country west of Lancaster, abandoned and forlorn. The paint faded away many long years ago and almost every pane of glass, along with the window frames, have fallen out. After the home was deserted trees started growing right up against the walls and some of those are now almost thirty years old.
Some time ago I noticed curtains hanging out the living room window and blowing in the breeze. Those curtains are now long gone. However when I went to the rear of the house I found curtains hanging out the rear dining room window.
This photo was taken from the rear of the house and is somewhat sheltered by trees and brush. Look closely and you will see that two halfs of the curtains remain. The right one hangs down the middle of the window, almost entirely outside, while the left one has only the lower half hanging out.
Both curtains have been snagged by the burrs growing outside the window and they have become entangled to each other. Now that they are exposed to all the rain and winter weather they will soon be reduced to tatters.
I cannot help but think that the woman that made these curtains with loving care would be surprised that they have survived her for many dozens of years.
