Zebulon Boy at Work on Family Farm, 1955

“Spring on the Farm,” a photo essay in the April, 1955, issue of Extension Farm-News
Spring is a state of mind, a change in the climate, a state of the universe. It all depends on your point of view. To 11-year-old Richard Mason of Zebulon, spring is the time when he would like to go fishing but has to plow instead. To Richard’s dog, Snuffy, spring is a time to play, but he has to be content with eating the dust at Richard’s heels. Here, for Richards everywhere of every age, are some signs of spring on the farm. They will be scant solace to Richards present, but to Richards past even the plowing scenes will produce a present glow.
