Whittier Homestead

My favorite poet is John Greenleaf Whittier.

'Snow-bound' published in 1866 is his best known
work of prose of which I have an early edition.
His poems were steeped in nature.

I visited his birthplace in Haverhill this afternoon.

The Homestead: House and Farm

Green door and granite stone step.

 A front window with a reflection of the barn.

Back side of the house which is red!

Barn window reflecting the sky.

 The barn shed with an old yoke hanging in the rafters.

Flowers and Fields

The Cows

Cute Calf

How now brown cow ?

Got milk ? : )

The end ; )
