Young people carried additional plants to the area under the tents where the Plant Sale took place. All the activities were part of a happy celebration of spring and the continuing appreciation of farm life.
In Rhode Island we cherish the old stone walls built by the farmers who were clearing their fields and constructing borders in the process. We now have protective laws which restrict the removal of any of these old stone fences. Many of the old walls are duplicated by modern day homeowners, but never do they manage to have the charm of these old relics of the past.
The old drying shed...we assumed was used for corn... doesn't seem to be in use anymore. It reminded us of the drying barns of western Massachusetts where they grow tobacco ( a big surprise to us at the time).
Aussie was such a good girl on the farm. I asked her to pose by the well, and she did so grudgingly, but ever so obediently. I can't tell you how much this dog means to us. She rules the roost!
