Wordless Wednesday





On my parents' farm in Indiana, taken when I was there over Spring Break.

A farm! That's so cool!
I've been a city girl all my life, but at least I had experienced a farm stay during our trip to Perth a while back and boy, it was an eye-opener to me!

Oh, I can just about smell the hay (yes, it's early, but still)! Which is the bigger culture shock, going back there, or coming back to FLA after having been there?

Melody - living on a farm in Indiana was a very wholesome experience growing up, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. As a kid, though, it was pretty tough to do frequent playdates when some of your friends lived 10 miles away!

ds - its funny, but I don't have culture shock at all (except maybe for the weather). I lived my entire life on this farm until I went to college, so it feels just like going home. It is one of the places that I can completely relax!

How nice to have a spot like that to go home to!

When I first saw the pic I wondered if you were going to start "collecting" barns now that you've run thru the lighthouses.

Dawn - you're always thinking, aren't you? No I haven't collected barns yet, but you know, I should. Just in my parents' county alone I could take hundreds of pictures. I'm headed there for two weeks this summer...maybe you've identified a project for me! I'm not sure if my parents will appreciate me screaming for them to stop in the middle of the road...

That's a beautiful composition. I love the sky element and all the cloud shapes. Nice job!

Sandy, I completely understand that feeling of relaxation; "home" to me is not the place I've resided for two decades plus, but the farm on which I grew up & where, like yours, my parents still live (though other kids were slightly closer than 10 miles away!). I hope your kids will come to share that feeling, if they don't already.

It looks just beautiful Sandy-peaceful too. There's just something about farms I will always love. Maybe it's from spending so much time on them as a kid with my grandparents. Great memories anyway.

Now that's a super midwest photo! I love this. (I was Ohio born and bred, in case you didn't know, so were kind of neighbors.)

Indiana is so much greener than CO ever is. :) Love the picture and while I didn't go up on a farm our kids will for sure. It is a great way of life.

I love this photo! It's home! My parents big old barn was taken by a tornado several years ago...it lies in a heap where it once stood. But my father is certain that he will one day reinstate it's grandeur and dignity by reusing the priceless beams that still lay beneath the rubble! My brother and I are certain that this is just another thing we'll have to clean up ourselves one day. :)
