Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

Murrieta's 365 has a Straight Out of the Camera Sunday meme for those photos that are so perfect that no tweaking is required.

I had a hard time choosing which photos to post and opted for these that were taken at the Dr. Pound Pioneer Farmstead Museum in Dripping Springs, Texas. I've been doing a series on the Pound House with the parlor and bedroom left to post. However, I liked this unusual hot house which is about 5 or 6 feet underground. A ladder is used to get down into it but I was unable to capture a photo of the ladder through the windows. The sun was too bright. The hot house faces South.

The main house is a little to the left and about 50-60 feet to the back of this structure.

We can learn a lot of green tips from our ancestors -- nothing was wasted as is pointed out in Part I, II, III and IV. Parts V and VI will be done this week.

Be sure to pop over here for the rest of SOOC Sunday photos.

Until next time, God bless.

Very interesting about the underground greenhouse. I know it's hot there, so that's probably the reason for this unusual greenhouse.

That is a very unique greenhouse. I would imagine being that far underground would help maintain the temperature and not let it get too hot in the summer. Great post Lynn.
