What a wonderful article. And I love your barn, would probably love the snow too, for awhile. Iwas born in Conneticut, but moved to Florida at 7, so I don't remember too much about snow.Florida has the summer heat and humidity, and when one is young, one dosen't seem to mind it, but nowadays, I shut myself in the house starting in June through August.If it weren't for airconditioning down here, Florida would be still largely unsettled.A friend of mine wrote me a few months ago that she was "feeling Swedish".I couldn't figure that out at all,when I asked her about what she ment, she explained about the lack of sunlight was affecting her.She was raised in Florida,does not do well in the winter,she reminds me of your nile lilly.I will have her read your article.She's a better gardener than I am. I still love your barn,I used to raise Dairy Goats,sold milk to a cheese plant, I still can't imagine chores in that weather.

lol, I know exactly how your friend was feeling, and I've lived here all my life.

The barn was built in 1945, after a fire destroyed the dairy barn that was here. They built it all post and beam and used wooden pegs to put it together - they couldn't get nails because of the war. Unfortunately, time is working its worst on it and eventually we will have it encased in dark green metal to keep it from falling down around us.
