THE OLD FARMHOUSE

This old farmhouse is on our grounds
 and may sadly be demolished to make room for 
new housing for our residents.
 


Behind the house is a stand of  Bamboo.
This is part of the landscape that I hope isn't destroyed. (#1)




This is the back of the farmhouse.
To the left you can just see a large Lilac bush. 






This would be #2 on my list of things to  save.

 


On one side of the farmhouse is an old but beautiful
Pine Tree.





It is my hope that this tree will also remain intact.
#3
I guess time will tell.
Since I have moved here,
I have become something of a tree hugger..
It just makes me sad to see natures creations
 that take years to grow,  
destroyed when a little thought and planning
could possibly save them for us to enjoy.







We can only hope...
Before you ask..the farmhouse is apparently beyond saving ?

So very sad about the farm house. I do hope the plants can/will be saved. I always think about who and when a plant beside an old house was planted. Wishing you and your babies a nice day.

Oh my . . . love that old farmhouse . . .
Would love to get inside too . . .
Wonder what makes it "beyond saving."
Keep on hugging Missy . . .
Love the huge, pine, spruce . . . .
And the lilac too . . .
I know there are times when a tree goes beyond its life . . .
but that spruce is as pretty as can be!
(I use that "love" word a bunch . . . don't I . . .)
Love ~

Time waits for no man. For no tree either, sometimes.

Oh- that whole thing is kind of sad, isn't it? To see a great old building torn down to make way for progress is kind of sad sometimes. I am with you. I hate to see any trees destroyed that are healthy. We had a lot cleared just down from us along the bay. It was full of lovely old trees. One old oak tree they figure is 300-400 years old! They are trying to preserve it if they can. Even our grandgirl looking at that spot asked where all the pretty trees had gone. xo Diana

Aw, sad for the farmhouse. Looks like it was a nice place once. I hope they leave the plants intact. Our new neighbors torn down a lovely quince bush recently. I don't know why. I hope they have plans that are worth it. That shrub had the most beautiful orange fruits every year. The birds nested in it, too. Makes me sad and not feeling too neighborly right now! :-P
