Black and White Sunday


Life here at the farmette, featured in black and white today.  

A perfect, swirly hay roll.  



The equipment of our son's craftsman ways.  
I feel like this picture could have been taken fifty years ago.  



An old well, just down the hill from our farmhouse.  



A Sycamore tree full of texture.  




The remnants of the old spring house for our farm.  Cold spring water is flowing from the right, inside corner.  We have found many shards of ancient pottery, dishes, and pitchers here, through the years.

  1. I have a particular fondness for stone walls, and I like the bark of that tree! Looks very pokey. I'd hate to be trying to climb that one.

  3. I love these farm images.
    Somehow they're great in black-and-white.
    Hard to pick a favorite, but I am drawn to that swirly hay roll.

  7. Lovely. And, such a very different "feel" to the images in b&w instead of color.

  9. Wonderful set of impressions. And I'd rather be a lot of places rather than an empress of the world...

  10. You have some wonderful historical things on your farm! We have found some old bottles in the woods of our farmhouse.. love that. We visited Washington's "farm" and indeed, living there would have been amazing. We got to sit on his porch in big rocking chairs and enjoyed the same view he did of the Potomac River. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
