For years the empty farm house and out buildings are left to
fade into their surroundings. Unpicked corn provides food for birds. The stalks
gradually dry up. collapse and blow away. Hay bales soak rain, become moldy,
dry out, freeze, soak up more rain and slowly disappear into the soil. It is a
familiar part of the scenery, this decaying farm with the crumbling buildings
until one day there is nothing but bare acres.
