The Farm - my home from 1962 - 1975 the farm has been divided up into lifestyle blocks and large sections. My father was farm manager, before we moved to town after he had a heart attack. The farm is no longer operating obviously evidenced by the run down nature of the woolshed (the roof was good for reconnaisance missions spying on imaginary foe). The overgrown field you see was my field of dreams where I used to have hour long rugby & football games with myself (nearest neighbouring kids a mile away)
Cricket was played against a separate shed's door !!

You would have had trouble hiding in my day Freda .. apart from the fact I would have spied you from the woolshed roof, the grass was grazed low and ideal for sports

Yes thanks hans .. I guess I don't take enough or have enough time to remember the simple pleasures of youth. I think maybe I should try that one day.

To grow up in such a place must have been like heaven ! I think its a pity that we don't always appreciate what we've had when we were young until its gone,but nice memories.Well done.

Oh wow... I often wish I had grown up on a farm too. It would make it a lot easier for me now that I'm studying all these agriculture-related things. :)

The view is very beautiful. Reminds me of Finnish countryside.

I love this! It would be this building in which I would make my home, not one of the new and perfect tract houses. And I'd lay in the tall grass.... =)

An old wool/shearing shed, I spent a lot of time in and on it (great vantage point on imaginary battles)
Might have to borrow Heather's mower to make a track there though
