Wow! For the past couple weeks each day when we come in or out of our side service door we see and believe us, hear Mama Killdeer! A loud shreaking "killl-deee....dee....dee..dee....dee. Now don't get us wrong, we enjoy their company usually all summer long... BUT this Spring, mama seems to be pretty loud! As we walk in to the garage, Mama jumps out of the tulip patch and runs in to the grass... ruffles her feathers and appears to have a broken wing... Well, naturally we want to help her, but come on ... the closer we get to her, the further towards the road she runs. OK, so after about 2 weeks of playing the I'll help you game, I decided to check out the tulip patch a bit closer tonight..... and this is what I found!!!

Much of our inspiration is found on our acreage nestled between the rolling hills of Garretson, South Dakota.
And YES! The barn is still standing! The photo was taken when it was built 100+ years ago! It resides on Jay's parents's farm near Pipestone MN.... simply the most amazing barn you've ever seen....
