    What an interesting article on Wilson’s Farm. I especially enjoyed the house — 11 Perry St, you featured. It’s our house!

But don’t rush over to take pictures just yet. We’ll be putting in new gutters and rainbarrels soon. Thanks again for your blog!

    • Oh that is so neat that is your house!! I bet it’s looking wonderful – I’ll definitely ride by to check it out. I moved here from NYC myself almost 9 years ago and found the transition so easy. Life here is sweet!
