| October 4, 2009

There’s another change of seasons at the Farmstead, and it seems to be changing rather quickly.  The colors are beautiful and as refreshing as the brisk morning air.  The header photo depicts our view as we look west toward the front slough.  The maple trees have changed to their vibrant reds, while the cottonwood and [...]

Another Change of Season

| September 5, 2009
