Down On The Farm – In Black And White

It’s been a week since we returned from vacation and I still have photos to edit. For some reason that doesn’t make sense to me, I scheduled my week after vacation too full with appointments and commitments. And there are always those things that come up in a week that add to an already hectic schedule. Here’s a sneak peek - bits and pieces - of a wonderful, old, historic sheep farm we visited while we were in Eastern Oregon. Tomorrow I'll share the farm in color. I think you will be amazed by the gorgeous surroundings. I’ll share a bit of the story of the family who made this ranch a place of love and hard work and prosperity.

An old car that carried a family to places unknown. . .

Farm implements – a plow. . .

This place captured my heart and imagination and I so wished I could have met the family who lived and worked here. I would have loved to share tea with the lady of the house and hear stories of life there. I’m sure you will enjoy hearing more and seeing the colors we saw all around this quiet place in the country. To be continued. . .
