I’m so glad that I am back with you dear friends. My surgery went well and I am healing. Thank you for all your many kind notes, I know that this helps with the healing process.
Today I want to share with you my darling neighborhood. I live in an old pioneer town just north of Salt Lake City. The area that I live in is divided into 4 small towns all designed by the great city planner Brigham Young. The streets are very straight and organized and it is very easy to navigate around and find your destination.
I have taken pictures of some of the great old farm houses in the area. This area was designed not only for farming but because of the mountainous area they grew fruit trees. When I was a little girl my mother would bring the family here to pick up fresh fruit to bottle. There were many great road side stands, so sad to say they are not here today because of new building.
Here is a lovely cottage with its rock wall.
Here is a side shot. As you can see towards the back of the home they have added onto it to make the small little home bigger. The yards don’t look so great because it winter time .
I love this home with all of the stone work. To bad it was garbage day!
Here is a close up of the front door. Click on the picture for more info.
This little sweet cottage is so darling with its white picket fence and darling little windows.
This old farmhouse is simply gorgeous. It sits on a corner and is surrounded by a beautiful stone wall (which made it very hard to get pictures of).
Here is the entrance to the farmhouse. The landscaping is beautiful complete with brick pathways.
There is an addition on the left side of the home.
This beautiful farmhouse was built shortly after the area was settled in 1875. You can read more about it, click on photo above for more information.
I love cursing around looking at these beautiful old homes and wondering what it would have been like to live in one of them in the late 1800’s. There are so many other old homes that I will share with you in a later date. My dream is to someday own one of these home. I hoped you enjoyed my little tour.
Have a great new week!
