I’m feeling a bit sentimental after five years on the farm. We have a special place, and I really treasure being here.
The house and the property have evolved since we arrived here five years ago. Looking back to April 2012, we’d added the flagpole to the turnaround, but the rest of the property–especially the turnaround–were still a disaster.
In our second year, I started taking a photo each June 1. Everything is green and growing. It’s a nice time of year to showcase the farm.
In June 2014, we were still establishing the gardens, but things were looking much tidier than when we first started.
This spring, we’re still making progress, and I’m so proud of what we’re building.
The exterior of the house itself has not changed as much as the interior or the rest of the property, but it will… someday. (And yes, I know our little maple tree is tilted.)
I think it will be fun to look back at these June 1 photos in another 5, 25 or even more years and think about all of the memories we’ve made here.
How do you mark progress at your house? What time of year does your home look its best?
