the big old farmhouse...

Looking across a cotton field to the family farmhouse.

Coming up the road.

No-till soybeans planted in the cut wheat fields.

What is left of the old kitchen and some out buildings.

Farmhouse peeking out between the trees surrounded by the old fence.

Almost to the gate.

The lane up to the house.

Aunt Dot will meet us at the back kitchen door with her apron on...;-)
She lived here during The Great Depression with her parents and 4 siblings , one of which was my dear Mother- in-law..Miz Nellie.
Aunt Dot married and her DH moved in with her parents and they are still here all these years later.
All the siblings have passed on, now just Aunt Dot at 89 left.
Also on The Farm is DH's homeplace where his father was born to his sharecropper parents. Miz Nellie raised her children here after her DH was killed in an accident.
This is my Cedar Cottage..;-)
Hope you enjoy 'artsy' black and white the tour!!
