I love our old barn. The loft is HUGE and filled with tons of garage sale stuff mom wants to get rid of! Anyone want to plan a trip up to Ohio??? I can hear everybody flipping their calendar pages now!! LOL! The lean-to off the side was a later addition and is used as the wood shed. Mom and Dad have always heated the whole house with a Yotel wood stove located in the kitchen.
The greenhouse is great for mom to put her plants into when winter gets here.
This garden is in the back of the house and is filled with herbs and roses...beautiful!
This is a little peek at the vineyard from the backyard of the house. See the red tool shed??? Well the rows of green beyond that are the grapes. Can you believe that there used to be an adorable outhouse to the left of the shed and Dad pushed it over...ON PURPOSE!! Mom about had a fit...so did I!! Anyway, I always love being at the farm and walking around the gardens. That is definitly one thing that I REALLY miss here in North Carolina is the Ohio soil. All the flowers up there get so big and beautiful and lush and here the soil is so red and crappy and hard. The flowers just don't grow the same and it breaks my heart a bit. Well I hope you enjoyed the tour of the olde homestead. I'll post part 2 in a few days! I missed you all while I was gone...it's good to be home!
