A new life...
It started life in the late 1950s as a chicken coop. This tiny building with a gable roof was one of many that dotted a big pasture near to where DW grew up. And when we went in search of a home and land of our own, we found our perfect place next door to the old chicken farm. We bought five acres with an old farmhouse, a long shed for hay and tractor storage, and this perfect chicken coop.
One of our first purchases was a clutch of baby Rhode Island Red chicks to make the coop a home. It's been years since we had chickens, but the coop lingers on. Today it's my favorite backdrop for photographs of the orchard, the hydrangea, and the butterfly bush.
