Yesterday, I went north with a friend to Warner, NH. We were picking up native plants for a Master Gardener project. Warner is a small town with a population around 3,000 and a charming one-block downtown area.
We traveled back roads to get to the nursery, and saw many large farms and ranches. I must admit I didn’t know we had ranches here in NH. I would have grabbed photos of some great wrought iron gates leading to a couple of ranches, but my friend was driving and doesn’t exactly understand or appreciate Thursday Doors. 🙂
The nursery owner and her new business were very interesting, but the real star for me was their barn.
It was not a barn that I’m use to touring. It did not house animals, tools, garden supplies, or any of the items I associate with a barn. It was a family party barn, and they had hosted a wedding there last weekend.
It was a beautiful barn built on the foundation from the original one that had been taken down. But, I’m still trying to reconcile my thoughts about a barn that is not a working structure.
I’m pretty sure I’m showing my age here, so I’ll stop writing and let you picture yourself sitting in the balcony, enjoying a cold beverage, and looking out over 300 acres. Nice.
Happy Thursday, and if you are here in the US, have a safe long weekend and never forget the real purpose behind Memorial Day Weekend. 🇺🇸🇺🇸
