Different with each season - naturally

chicks and eggsThe activities change with the season and from month to month. The spring and summer seasons promise daily chores to be done, things to learn, and flowers and gardens to admire.

When winter comes and the snow flies, life slows down and takes on a different feeling. There's not too much to do outside in way of farm chores, but there's plenty of cozy and quiet.

There's plenty of pictures in the scrapbook of farm memories.
