an old house

a friend told me that about sixty years ago a local man that he knew used to ride his bike to visit an elderly couple who lived here, they were in their nineties.  That's all I was told and so it's interesting to think how life was in the small house all those years ago.  I imagine after they died, the place sat uninhabited for all these years.

  7. Those beautiful stone walls...how my heart aches for these abandoned old buildings. The vegetation that so often covers places that have been forgotten...seem to be trying to hide their sad conditions from prying eyes.
    Beautiful photos Bill 🌹

  19. My husband and I have driven many a back road, up in the hills,
    and have seen many, many abandoned homes much like this . . .
    Oh the stories they could tell . . .
    The stone amazes me . . . look how it stands true, while the wood is less so.
    I wonder if the 90 year old couple died in the house.
    Who brought them care . . .
    Who stood by . . .
    I wonder where the stories are . . .
