I have introduced the old family farm before but I just wanted to post some images that fill in some for impressions of the place. The farm has been worked on for many generations. Sadly its no longer lived in any more but we do our best to visit and keep the old place going….

  1. Wonderful post. It’s clear the old place is still loved and cared for and not left to disrepair. It’s so important to honor our heritage – even if it’s no longer a part of our daily life it’s still with us and deserves to be kept alive. I love the last image of a lamp still burning. It says so much. Just lovely Nigel. 🙂

    Great images Nigel – so atmospheric. That tractor wheel image really draws you in. And those lantern photos are quite spooky!

  4. How lovely! I wish we still had our family farm in Alberta.. So important to stay connected to our heritage and all it has to teach us about who we are. Kudos to you for taking care of your little corner of the world. It looks beautiful. … Be well, Dorothy

    • Hello Dorothy 🙂

      That’s a shame !, yes it is wonderful that the family have kept using the farm. Its the land that’s used these days and I suppose one days the old house will be hard to keep going, everyone does their best.

      Thanks for your visit and comment Dorothy

  5. Can’t you almost hear the scraping of the boots and the tea being poured… and laughter echoing in the hallway. Lovely, atmospheric images, Nigel. Mary Robinson would be impressed with the light in the window. The thought of that always brought a tear to my eye. Sentimental old fool, I know.
