Rebuds of Spring

Norma's Smoke House

This farm was established in the early 1930s. ALL of it was built with white Oak lumber cut and sawn mostly from the location. It had a spring for water...They had a blacksmith shop,  stock barn ,teams of large horses, cows , sheep, hogs,bees, & ponds dug with a slip. They had a large garden and canned their own food. There were 40 acres mostly clear and they were doing some row crops. These are recent photos of the house and smoke house. It looks a lot like it has for the last 70 yrs. The lady is my cousin, Norma. And the house is about 2 miles from me here in Missouri.

Hand feeding a young hummer. He got caught in a late spring cold spell and was about dead,  so I moved him inside and hand fed him. After some sugar water and warming up he was ready to go.
