HiBar Ranch – A Week In Photographs – Life On The Farm

Since our blog was long on the goings on at HiBar Ranch I thought it best to do a photo essay separately on the photographic capture of life on the farm this last week.

It is truly spectacular to watch the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee come to life in spring.  The last set of photographs I took of life on our farm showed trees budding out and early tree blooms gracing the farm.  Now, as of this week we have complete foliage and green grasses.  It is truly lovely here in the mountains.  And, we have hit an all time high weather/temperature wise for the month of April so everything is truly maturing earlier than usual in our neck of the woods.

Here is a photo tour of our week on the farm.  Here we go!

HiBar Ranch – Where The Old Matters

We hope you enjoyed our photo tour through our efforts over the last few weeks to get our farm’s landscaping and infrastructure done so that the place is kept and managed in keeping with our values.  It is alot of work to make a house a home.  Our sweat equity is finally paying off!!  I love to look out at the farm valley and see an orderly well loved property.

God Bless! L. Davis
