I have large plans for Spring. Seriously large. I've been on the lookout for an old corn crib since, oh, forever and I've had a hard time describing what I envision. Lo and behold! I came across this picture on a website - The Mustard Seed - and here is my vision in the flesh!
We have two pads here on the farmette that both held old silos for many years. I removed the old auger from one and it will hold my Purple Martin house later this Spring. The dryer and blower portion is still covered with a vented steel cover that is about 6' square and my plan is for that to become a firepit. Ed still cocks his head and raises one eyebrow when I talk about these plans so let's just keep it to ourselves, shall we?
I picture the corn crib with a couple of adirondack chairs and maybe a table for my ever-present Diet Coke, vertical garden panels, Passion Flower and tangerine colored Trumpetvine, surrounded by my ever-growing collection of daylilies. From here I can see for miles and miles and miles - maybe just watch the storms blossoming on the horizon. Dream. Draw. Nap.
Be honest, isn't this the sweetest thing ever?
