…in May!

Hey, I just want to throw out some random shots and thoughts before moving into May proper.

Here’s a working farm in Colrain:

…and a Gentleman’s Farm up in Rowe:

I’m fascinated by old barns (in case you haven’t noticed) and their simple functionality – like the obvious solution to the age-old problem of how to get stuff up into the third floor of the big ones, like this one n Ashfield:

That’s two stories of rough stone work – a nice project for an autumn weekend!  😉

Here’s one more farm scene, sadly typical of the old farms around here:

When the money’s short and your handy, not much gets thrown away – it’s amazing what gets reused/recycled on these old farms!

And lastly, here’s a spring (with excellent water, by the way) which didn’t survive this past winter’s unusually harsh weather:

I hate  it when that happens.

So it’s onward into May, the month of flowers and morels and the bright green of new leaves!

Yay for May! But it’s crummy today! Love all your shots in this post. How can you live around here and not appreciate the region’s past, even if what you run into is a lot of rust and rot.

‘Deed I do, Kid. I’m more appreciative of the farm ethos now that I’m a good bit older, go figure!
