I started visiting Carriage Hill Farm last October and by the beginning of the last year, I thought I had pretty much gotten to know the farm inside and out. To my surprise, I didn't really know the farm at all. As Spring and Summer arrived, I learned that there was so much more to discover. New activities, new events and new people to get to know.
Today, I met two new (to me) volunteers at the farm. A mother and daughter team that had a very loving and tender relationship. I really enjoyed seeing them together and wondered a little about the bond between mothers and daughters.
I have often referred to the farm as a living still life. The key word here is living. The place is full of life. Sometimes fast paced action and sometimes like this pair, tender and thoughtful.
