…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!
