An Afternoon At Weir Farm

Posted on

I took the boys to Weir Farm National Historic Site today and it was glorious.  We hiked out to the pond and back as well as exploring some of the gardens.  It was a little warm, we started out at high noon, maybe we should have waited until it cooled down but we had a great time anyway.

One of the houses/barns at Weir Farm.  They have an artist in residence program but not sure if anyone is living in this house.

An old kettle.  I wonder what this was used for?

I hope you all have a chance to get out and experience a little nature where ever in the world you are today.
