Todd Hill Road Farm

Just down the hill from my son's school is a lovely old horse farm with rolling hills and tattered fences and the one thing I love most about farms, big open space. Surrounding the farm, out of the camera's focus is another new housing development. I'm not sure if it was the farmer's land or just vacant land that was developed. I talked to one mother there and she doesn't feel as close an affection for the farm as I do. Particularly when they put down the manure in the spring or at the peak of summer's heat when the natural things on a farm greet your nose long before your eyes. She's used to it, she said, she just turns on the central air and keeps all the windows shut. Ah, the country.
