The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Coming home

Coming home

Coming home is one of my favorite parts of our farm. Whether it's Mark returning from town (caught by Mom in this photo as I drove her back out to her car) or me returning from the wide world and soaking up the richness of our environment, there's nothing quite so wonderful as diving back into the beauty and tranquility of our trailerstead. Winter gray or summer green, Lucy and farm both welcome us with wagging tail. Perfection!

I agree there is nothing better than coming home! Our 5 acres surrounded by wetlands may not seem like much to most but I would not trade it for anything.

no place like home! (particularly a wonderful natural one.)

I feel the same as you do. When we come home from visiting our children, or vacations or just a day out shopping. It is so nice to get to our valley and breath in the smell of home.
