Another Farm Down the Road


This quaint old farmstead is one of at least a half-dozen on Swan Road. The red barns are right up against the road, and the little garden cabin is next to their house.

Notice the satellite dish on the cabin roof and someone's recovered hub-cap leaning against the barn below. Signs of the 21st century are everywhere.

What is that tree over the cottage? I love its dripping branches!

Hi, Hilda - that's a "weeping willow" tree. Very common around most of the USA. If interested, you can read more about them here: http://bit.ly/oSOIC

What a beautiful place. I amazed that it is so well-kept.

These are great. My favorite is the last one - the red is so vibrant and the shadow of the tree is interesting. Somehow I could see that photo in a calendar. For some reason it just seems like such an "August" photo.

That is just so pretty! I love that name too, Swan Road.
