A Barn Style House



About 5 miles from our farm,

(as the crow flies)....

is this charming farmhouse

that I've admired for many years




I remember it before it was RED,

that was a very long time ago...

The story goes that the son took on a wife...

a wife with some ideas of her own!!

Soon after the daughter-in-law moved into the 
barn shaped house it was painted RED...

 Other improvements also came about...

like flowers in this old kettle every summer...



The old tattered farm got freshened up,
cleaned up, and I'm always amazed at 
the immaculate lawn every time I drive by!!

This farm is definitely something to crow about....


Isn't her rooster mailbox the coolest??

(That sister of mine is 
quite the farm girl!!)


Please join us!
