Down On the Farm

Yesterday I spent a few hours visiting at the farm where Dev and I lived a couple years ago. Truly it's one of the most beautiful places I've ever lived.

The view from the back porch of the main house:

The river is to the left. One year, it flooded all the way over to the building on the right. The road that runs alongside the river goes to the farthest end of the property, beyond the curve in the picture, and ends in dense, almost marshy woods. The trees covering the hill on the right also obscure a natural spring that burbles up in a couple places and fills a pond at the hill's base.

The little house I lived in:

Dev had the upstairs all to himself. The front window you can see overlooked the little road and the Depression-era bridge. His window at the other side of the house gave a tree-crowded view of the valley pictured above.

That Depression-era bridge is currently being replaced, and that's a good thing. Lovely as it was to look at, crossing it involved a great deal of trust in the notion your car wouldn't be the one to finally crumple the rusted-out thing spanning the river.
