Little House On The Prairie

20150216-DSCF1020
This little (not really LITTLE) house intrigues me.  There’s not a single tree surrounding it, which is rare on the Saskatchewan prairie (wind breaks…don’t want to lose that precious topsoil)…and the first time I visited it the front door (devoid of glass) was locked.

As Tabula Rasa always finds pianos, in Canada the theme leans towards the culinary…with emphasis on the “lean”.

Beaver Lumber in Canada is no more.  All that remains is the shell of a prospering community.


Pioneering

Abandoned things in Canada seem to be different than a lot of places where my trusty co-horts visit.  We don’t have a lot of old factories and things like that where I am.  In Canada, specifically on the prairies, it’s abandoned farms.

Farming is in my family…my great-grandparents settled in Saskatchewan and that farm is still in the family today, 112 years later.  The families around their farm are long gone, but the reminders are still there..sometimes with personal items inside.

These homes are a sad reminder that life is always moving forward and sometimes things just get left behind.  They are gentle giants dotting the prairie landscape.
