ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " H "



The letter for ABC Wednesday is " H ".
This first picture can also be for Carmi's theme of Transportation,
so check HIS link too.
In the 1930's and 40's the HIGH - HAND fruit and flower packing plant
was in its HAYDAY.
Produce was shipped from HERE to there, all over the U. S.



The HARD-WORKING truck would HAVE been a HAZARD
without a lightbulb in its HEADLAMP.
This is definitely not a HOT ROD to create alot of HOOPLA over.



Be it HAWAII or somebody's garden, one can always find
HEAVENLY HIBISCUS such as this one to enjoy.
I don't think they are HUMDRUM at all.
In fact it looks like a HUMDINGER of a flower to me.



I HOPE the rope is secure or the HAY-BALE could cause
HAVOC in the HAYLOFT.
Make it a HABIT to enlarge the photos and HAVE a look at the detail.
HOP on over to Mrs. Nesbitts link on my sidebar to see what's HAPPENING at ABC Wednesday.

A Hay-bale of this style would have been admirably suited for the car.

Excellent H photos! Loved the commentary that accompanies the photos.

Terrific H shots for the day! And very interesting ones as well! I, too, love your commentary! Hope your week is going well! Enjoy!

You certainly HAVE a way with words!I've never HEARD of this company! But I love the HEADLIGHT, almost unrecognizeable in such an old vehicle and without a bulb. And the HAY!! The bale is framed by the sky and HEADING up to HEAVEN!!

Francisca said...

That was a Heap of Happy Hs! :-)

Carmi said...

If only this truck could talk! There is something magical about these vehicles. I feel like reaching for the handle and just holding it.

I love this series. It's so rich with imagery from a time and a place that, despite being removed by history, are still close enough to experience - as you've helped us do here.

Thank you for sharing this as part of this week's Thematic theme. I love it!

Leo said...

I was wondering about that round thing until you told me it needed a light to work! Funny how you only know things when they are fully functional.

Gramma Ann said...

What a fun post for H day. Enjoyed it. ; )

Carver said...

I like all of your choices for H very much. The hay bale against the blue sky makes a stunning shot.

Reader Wil said...

Highly enjoyable photos - I'm so fond of hibiscus! Hay, not so much. :) And the headlamp is a good reminder for me to check my old car before I hit the city streets tomorrow!

Had the grandsons today, so didn't get a chance to look until this evening. As usual, love all your pictures.

You really know your Alphabet!!!!

Paula Scott said...

Wow-what a great series of shots and writing to go with it! It has a sense of history to it, the stories that go with it too.
Great job! Can you hear the applause from here?

Dave said...

You are clever with all of the 'hhh's' Sue - Dave

Kate said...

Wow, Sue! You really work hard on your posts for this meme. Great collection of photos and narrative as well...clever. I just posted my photo and since I've been away for so long, I was amazed at the improvement for ABC's site!

Kimberly said...

Love it! Great H post! Definitely love the Hay-bale!

Willa said...

Lovely Hibiscus!!

LisaF said...

Your hot rod headlamp pic made me laugh! I also love your first pic and what's not to like about hibiscus flowers. So heavenly.

Carolyn Ford said...

You really have a gorgeous photos for H! I LOVE that hibiscus!

Joy said...

Who does not love a piece of rust and chase it down for a photo. The hibiscus is beautiful, and hay, well I seem to have been travelling behind a lot of it recently.

Gayle said...

You're always so clever with your abundant ABC words! I'll bet if a car fanatic got hold of that hot rod, it would be shined up, looking like new in no time!

Mrs. Me said...

Nice job! I still have plans to get to High Hand Nursery for a mother/daughter lunch in the near future!

Hilary said...

You're equally creative with your use of H words as you are with your beautiful photography. A very impressive collection.
