Home Sweetest Home

A couple of posts back, it was suggested by a reader that I do a Thousand Flower Farm (my place of origin, a small organic farm nestled in one of the verdent evergreen forests that dot the Salish Sea) nostalgia post. I happen to have a small collection of old photos from the Island (most taken in the '70s and '80s, a bit before my time) stored up on my flickr, and though I've posted a few here before, I thought I'd take the time once and for all to give some of my favorites a proper showcase. I hope you like them as much as I do!















I've decided to let the pictures do the talking, but should you have any questions please leave them in the comments and I'll try hard to stay on top of things! Also, a few more of these, including slightly more recent shots, can be found here on my flickr :n )

DRRRROOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLL. One day I'll travel back in time and have my own organic, hippie, West coast farm! Have you ever read the Eden Express? Its basically about your parents (or how I imagine them) with some added crazy sixties stuff.

thank you for graciously entertaining my nosy request... i love all of these photos! the kitty and the oven is my fav, though the pony pic (are you on sporting the purple jumper? a relative perhaps?) is a close second.
happy thanksgiving!

The Sexy Pedestrian said...

The first two photos are insane! They'd make incredible illustrations for a kid's book, you should write one!

E-bad said...

You come from here? It is like a fantasy!

TheMinx said...

I love the picture with the cat in the oven! All of them are so ethereal...

Outi said...

This is intriguing. Such an unusual environment to grow in. How do you feel it has influenced your views on life, and what, on the other hand, do you feel you discovered by yourself? How have you chosen an urban lifestyle coming from a place such as this; was it an easy choice?

R Storch said...

these pictures are really special and beautiful - at first glance I thought they were staged, but they are orignial, what style! what photography! :) Thanks for sharing them.

krickie said...

M. said...

These are some of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen - especially the one with the cat. I don't even know you but I wish I was you just to grow up with those visuals!
