a visit to the farm...

Some of you remember my parents have a farm an hour from us, it has a pond, creek, river, barn, house, garage, woodshed, and is 2/3 forested and one third hay meadow.  It is also quite hilly and surrounded by thousands of acres of public forest land, so it seems bigger than it is.

ANYWAY, you can imagine it is quite gorgeous, especially on a nice fall day.  We had a little snow falling, but then the sun came out. (overnight we had enough snow to leave patches around out there, it is 25 degrees right now!)

Woodshed.


Their apple trees havn't been properly cultivated in years, yet still produce a huge number of apples....which the deer and my sister's dogs are enjoying.






My sister lives 2 days' drive away but is visiting this month with her pugs.




They have a LONG driveway...


The river bank.....

What a lot of gorgeous views of nature at it's finest. Pugs are cute in their ugliness.

Beautiful location. The driveway reminds me of potter Al Jaeger's in Deerfield NH.

Look at those cute pugs!!! Your parents farm is absolutely magical; I love it. I can't believe you're already getting snow though!
