This is my view when I walk to work every morning at 6 am. Ahh, NY in the summer.
Beautiful, how are the winters?
I don't mind the winters, Lacyj. We'll get a couple of storms with a foot or so of snow, but it's worth it.
Very pretty. I want to see that same view in the fall please
Aaaah! That's just lovely.
That looks familiar, I lived in Ithaca for four years.
lacyj, It's NY the winters are nasty! Though there are places that are worse.
Wow!!! If I had a view like that, I'd never get any work done. I'd just sit down & stare out at it all day.
I would like to see it in the winter, with snow. We don't get much, & I love winter scenes.
Me too! Me too! :haha:
Idle curiosity here, but what do you do for a living?
What do you do for a vacation when you have a view like that every day?
I often feel I don't need any get away vacation with the view out back of my place. It's like Stacy's beautiful pictures due to less rolling hills. However the tree and wildlife species are great to see.
I actually enjoy our winters if you get a chance to get outside on skis or snowshoes and get on the trails 'amongst em'. I could always wish we had a bit longer growing season, but even at that something can be harvested. Wild Blueberries soon come into fruit. yum, yum... :yeeha:
TNNative, I breed Warmblood horses. I'll never be rich but it allows me to stay home and work.
Woodsrunner, NY winters aren't that bad! I do tend to hibernate by the woodstove during January and February tho. I like the snow until about March then it can go away. I'm in Broome County, near Windsor.
Cyngbaeld, what's a vacation? :grin: I like staying on the farm.
The only drawback is gardening, we're zone 4 and it's a little harder to get a good garden going. We had our last frost early this month, being a procrastinator finally worked out for me.
I'll post pictures of fall and winter too. I'll try to get one of the horse pasture and hill, maybe the cabin too, tomorrow morning. We have 113 acres, 50 open and the rest wooded, and it's just breath taking.
I'm glad you guys enjoyed the picture.
.............Beautiful scenery Stacy ! What is your average high and low for July and August ?? And , what is the elevation at your farm? I would guess that you are so far north that the elevation won't make much difference . I believe several folks have lamented the fact that property taxes in NY are extremely high but maybe that was in NYCity as opposed to the county . fordy..
Oh, you make me miss HOME........I grew up in Delaware Co. - a little over an hour east from you - beautiful country - enjoy the summer
fordy, I looked up the average temps, just for you. :grin: For July it's 78 degrees, and August 76, the normal lows are both 60 degrees. The humidity is usually low, so when we get days like yesterday and today (and for the next couple of days) with the humidity high and dewpoint at 65+ it's wicked uncomfortable. The property taxes are a bit high, but if you make your property a business they come down to reasonable levels.
I think the average will be higher this year
Signed, sweating 30 mi away from Stacy
I think so too, Mobarger. It's 7:25 am and just got done picking horse stalls, graining, and bringing them and I'm soaked. We've had more heat and humidity so far this year than we usually do all summer. It's been nice at night tho.
...............Stacy , thanks . I've never been to NY state but the pic's of the countryside always seemed to show a beautiful landscape . The whole country gets bombarded with nothing but NYC on the major morning news casts so I've always thought all the urban types lived in NYC , and the country folk out in the county . You are very blessed to live in such a beautiful place . fordy..
Just got back fromthe field putting in taters. Thought I was about ready to die.
Today we put up hay. Someone else baled it thank goodness. It seems it's always the hottest day when the hay is ready.
Love your view Stacy I do keep looking at the pi c
Stacy, it's beautiful! I still think it would be a lovely spot for a wedding.
Just beautiful. It is always nice when people in other areas of the country get to see that the NY/NJ area isn't completely paved over.
Now if we could only get rid of some of this high heat/high humidity combo we could go back to having a normal summer.
