Returning to this barn from several years ago. I can’t find the original post but I have the pictures:
My father-in-law loved going out for a long drive and a smoke. He enjoyed sharing time in this way with those he loved. Between long drags he would point out and identify by name wildflowers and birds in nearby trees. He would sing along every time The Beach Boys came on the radio. On one of our outings he humored me and pulled off the rural windy road so I could snap the pictures posted above dated 2014.
So sad to say he’s gone now but I think of him often especially when I catch a bird in my viewfinder or see a wildflower he introduced me to or hear The Beach Boys come on the radio.

It hit me, I was losing someone dear.” -Brian Wilson/Mike Love
Do you remember where you were in July of 2014?
