Hello friends,

The old barns and out buildings at my son's farm abound in rustic charm.  Their years of service are reflected in the weathered condition.

These large hooks along the roofline have a beautiful oxidization.

The spring light creates an interesting pattern of light and shadow, my herb garden harvest drying on the rafters.

Bleached by the sun, the siding sets the backdrop for the remnants of last years vines.  Soon they will green up with fresh spring growth.

Vintage chicken coops, close up and full shot, raised to avoid any rising of the Juniata River which borders this section of the farm.

The white washed fencing encircles the front pasture filled with buttercups.

The aged post carries a truly beautiful green moss patina that contrasts with the oxidation of the heavy post and hooks along the side barn surrounded by naturalized spring blooming wild phlox.  This pond teems with turtles, singing bull frogs that entertain us each evening and serves as host to families of water fowl in the spring.  The dogs love it, too!

Finally, this antique Massey Ferguson tractor is still a workhorse, she wears her years with style:
