Tractor on a Silo

The concrete silo sits on well manicured property, but looks out of time. The adjacent home, barn, and equipment shed appear to have been built sometime in the 1970s or later. The tractor is showing a lot of rust, but someone has been up there, as a string of holiday lights is draped over it.
