Age And Beauty

Age And Beauty

I always feel a little sad when I see a farm site sitting empty.

A once loved and lived in farmhouse with barns and sheds slowly leaning toward the earth.

I often stop to photograph these simple farm structures…they speak to me…sometimes they really do…sometimes a critter or two live in them!

The beautiful Creeping Virginia is trying it’s best to decorate this little shed for Fall.

  1. Such a gentle soul you are Stacey. I love the description you’ve wove for your photo. Virginia Creeper is the most colourful fall show we have in Edmonton, so I always have loved when people use it. Tenacious thing to continue to grow long after the family abandoned it there.

    1. We have a love hate relationship with Virginia Creeper…I love it, husband hates it. It is in our tree grove, and likes to choke out the Pines. I want to plant some by Rabbit Run Cottage?

    1. Many times, farms have been left to family members who no longer have an interest in living in the rural homes…they won’t sell it either, and it sits and deteriorates. Sad.

  2. I’m not really familiar with Creeping Virginia, but it’s beautiful! I don’t have a lot of experience with watching an old farm decay, but I think that would be very hard to see. You have such a good eye for beauty in all things, Stacey!
