We took these photos this past summer~
Genesee Country Village
Mumford, New York
One of our most treasured Historic Villages...
Well worth the travel!
The animals there seem to know they're part of a
museum and behave in a nice way!
They pose for photographs...
and don't chase after me!
I remember splitting wood for HOURS
on weekends as a child. My dad and neighbor
worked together & made their own wood splitter.
The farmer & he respected the woods.
Took the trees that had fallen first, selected others
that had damage from storms...
When stacking the wood I would tuck food scraps
in between the layers...without being caught...
for the new tenants I was hopeful to soon meet!
And tenants we had!
(Inside and out)
For the first time in years...the air seems spotted
with the smell of wood stoves & fireplaces~
On country drives we see porches packed
with cut wood.
