…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!

After a premature Spring with temps pushing 90, this:

Snow in the high country, several inches.  Northern Vermont got two feet, so I guess we should count ourselves as lucky.

Mount Greylock got a good coating:

…and Monroe got its share:

Strange, after such a warm early April.  Flowers and flowering trees might take a beating from this, regardless of its transience.

We’ll see, I guess.
