And what to our wondering eyes did appear – but a new barn! It’s a pole barn with a gravel floor; perfect for storing all those extra “implements” we seem to have collected since we’ve been here on the farm. There is plenty of room for the big tractor, the lawn tractor, the grader, the tiller and a myriad of other things like spare bee equipment.
But the barn isn’t all about farm implements – it also has a loft… with a ship’s ladder to make it easy to climb up there. And once you’re up there, the little window gives a bird’s eye view over the tree tops. It’s the perfect place to hang out with Arianna – and Hannah too when she gets a bit older.
The barn came festooned with Christmas wreaths – the perfect touch for the holiday season. And now I’m looking forward to spring when we can pull all those farm implements out of the barn and get busy in the garden!
