Home, such a simple four letter word full of meaning and emotion. In 2010 we purchased a mini Hobby Farm with full intentions of restoring the house and surrounding buildings. We have a dream of living simpler yet comfortable, of enjoying life while we work and not work to enjoy life.
Our dream is to once again have a large garden, fruit trees, & a flower bed. I can almost envision my Black-Eye’d Susan’s, Coneflower’s, Shasta Daisy‘s, & Day Lily‘s surrounded by baby’s breath and a blanket flower through the changing seasons. ::sigh:: As I take a walk around the farmhouse I realize that the project is bigger than what we ever imagined, does it dissuade us from our dreams? A sound no is the correct answer. On the contrary, it inspires us to continue as we are doing for a few more years. To prepare for a simpler life while we enjoy the fruit of labor.
I took the following few shots while walking around the farmhouse during the evening. My favorite is the sunset picture. Let me know what you think.
