The Farm

My grandparents live on a beautiful 160 acre farm in Michigan. It hasn't been a fully-functioning farm with livestock for a long time, but my Grandma still has fruit trees, a garden, and does all of her annual harvesting and canning. And my Grandpa still rides around on his tractors and has trout in the pond. The farm is a little piece of heaven for me so I wanted to share the beauty captured on my last trip with you all. I shot all photos with a Canon G10. img_0399

The pond! This is my childhood in a nutshell.

I don't know if you can tell, but being at the farm makes me really happy!

Grandma's cookin'! Everything on this plate was grown in her garden (minus the baked beans!).
