Centenary United Methodist Church, as stated on their website, is "at the intersection of Friendly and Elam and the intersection of Thee, you and me." This stained glass window, prominently featured at the front of the church, is visually stunning (from the inside). Additionally, the church offers great sermons and wonderful religious programs.
Centenary UMC of Greensboro is well known for the fall pumpkin sale. You know it is October when you are driving along Friendly Avenue and see pumpkins of all sizes spilling out on the lawn and youth group members helping people load pumpkins into their cars. If you attend this church, please post a message here telling us a beautiful memory you have about your church.
In 2005, North Carolina was rated 8th in the nation in total horse numbers and Guilford County was ranked near the top. However, on average, North Carolina loses 3 acres of farmland a day to development; a statistic that affects opportunities to board and ride horses. Nevertheless, places to ride in Greensboro abound and are available through public and private organizations. If you are a local rider and have a good horse story, add a comment.
Happy Friday! Guilford County school teachers and students have been back into the routine of teaching and learning for a week now. Greensboro Daily Photo has completed a week of blogging. To celebrate, a stroll along Elm Street is in order. Greensboro has wonderful locally-owned businesses and Elm Street is full of them. Nothing beats having a proprietor to attend to your shopping and dining needs.
Above, is a photograph of soothing bath salts from Terra Blue at 518 South Elm. Sarah has been making bath salts for nearly a decade and has perfected the recipe. Additionally, Terra Blue offers her special blend of coffee, beads for jewelry making and an array of unique items. The bath salts are placed in antique French apothecary jars purchased at Lion's Crown Antiques at 536 South Elm. Post a comment letting us know what you enjoy about Elm Street.
Farmhouses with livestock, outbuildings, tilled gardens, cedar trees, persimmons, black walnuts, grapevines, and plenty of surrounding land are relics of the way Horsepen Creek Road looked in the past. While still standing (barely), this farmhouse is an anomaly amid the townhouses, private schools, sports facilities and planned neighborhoods on Horsepen Creek today.
Adam's Hair Studio, perched on a hill at the corner of Oakland Ave. and Holden Road, is a Greensboro landmark. I'm sure the round building has a great history. Presently, it is for sale by owner. Surely, someone has a use for a 360 degree building. Can't you just imagine it as some trendy business? It looks like a giant flower pot!
If you know about the history of this building, please share the information as a comment. I will post another photograph later in the year if the building gets transformed or repurposed.

Welcome to Greensboro Daily Photo (GDP). GDP is my foray into the blogging world. On days that I don't get out to take pictures of the people, events, and places in Greensboro, I'll share shots of collectibles, especially North Carolina pottery and hand-blown, 20th century, American glassware. GDP is in good company as our city is blessed with another daily photo blog, In Good Light.
