Great photo, the snow and sky are wonderful, Happy New Year!

Dina

You are lucky to have such nice old farms nearby.
My daughter and her family always like to escape the loud celebrations in Sydney and go off to some place in nature to welcome the new year. They are driving 3 1/2 hours through Australia in order to do a 3-day farm stay. The kids will love it.

Thanks for your kind words and the same to you.
Happy, healthy, peaceful new year to you and D.

This is the old Coble farm. Isn't it pretty??! My grandfather did lots of "cow trading" with the Cobles. My father recently told me that this farm is slated for demolition so that Friends Homes West can expand. I think it's a shame. I'll see what else Daddy knows about it.

Thanks, Emily! We knew we could count on you. For search and archival purposes, we're going back in and changing the title to "Coble" farm. Hate to hear that it is slated for demolition. Other than Guilford College and Friends Meeting with the cemetery, this farm is about it for the charm of Old West Friendly. If you hear of other places slated for the chopping block. Let us know and we'll try to get there before they are gone. We just made it to Newman Machine this year before it was demolished. We do need growth and progress; however, we also need something that hints of our history of farm, dairy, and horse country.

Happy New Year Everyone!

I know, I hate to see these places fall, but I guess change (progress?) must occur. Our family farm on New Garden fell in the late 80's /90's. The only remaining memory for me is a magnificent old oak planted the year my grandfather was born (1901) and the magnolia tree standing beside it that he planted when he inhereted the farm. My father discussed the preservation of these two trees with the developer. They kindly roped off the area and did preserve them. I collected some magnolia leaves from this tree to decorate my house this holiday season.

There was much local debate about the property sale at the time...many public hearings, etc. Even the family was split over the decision to sell or not. Our community must work together to delicately balance our need for progress and preservation.

Happy New Year. Great shot. It is sad we are losing so much rural land.

Janis

What a lovely scene,all covered with snow! I pictured bundled up folks with snowshoes and a couple of big dogs bounding along by their side for some reason!
I am saddened to hear the farm is slated for demo but it is motivational for me to get out and take some photos of places nearly gone very soon.
Almost all the dairy farms are gone from So Cal, just in the last 15 years we lost great #s of them to new home builders and now many of those homes are sitting empty.
Some of the Dairy families did not close up but took their herds to Texas or Nor Cal or Idaho.
Have a great New Year weekend ahead!

Nice shot. You can't beat nice white snow against a blue sky.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
The only points to befriend winter for me are the ability to make so beautiful shots and to breath fresh winter air (I hope that day was not windy)).
And thank you for your warmest comments and attention.
