Impressions of an Old Farm

The old farm house and detached garage and shed used to be painted yellow. Maybe this horse stable was once used as a chicken coop? I wondered about this window. What’s the point?

The horses still like the shed.
The old sink turned watering trough was mighty dry. The horses must have another water source.
Another dry sink trough.
Old wood fence posts and chain, barb wire and other fencing types.
An old can. Note the tree sprouting from the trunk.
Lilies in a flowerbed beside the old house.
Pasture grasses.

Old gas can by a barbed wire fence.
Pasture roses along a fence out back.
An old storm cellar, Wizard of Oz style. The door lifts up to one side 
and the main room has two covered air ports.
Dark, wet with sticks, roots, and old glass jars. I wouldn’t want to have to shelter here.
Ivy overtakes the old garage’s back. The tree trunks are 
covered too.
