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.

Rural Practicality

Farmer Carl advertised a chicken brooder house for sale.

After a lovely visit with Carl, I purchased the “rustic” farm building.

Not quite sure how or if it would make the journey to our property..

but I had a vision!

Luckily, my husband is handy, and he didn’t give up!

Tucked under the sheltering Maple Tree, isn't it charming!

As always, it’s a family project.

“Yes, kids–we are getting chickens and chickens are so cool”!
