Traditional Red Barn Nestled In the Tall Grass

 
The prairie grass is sprinkled with Spring blooming Indian Paintbrushes, a perfect accent to the red barn.
 Have you ever wondered why so many barns are painted red? In searching for the answers, I found so many theories, it is impossible to tell you all of them.
 
The funniest one I found was, "So a farmer's cows could find there way home". 
If you would like to explore the other ideas, click HERE and read what Live Science has to say about the theory. 
 
I love to tease with the camera...to make this shot, I sat down on the ground.

  1. This picture is absolutely beautiful to me. I've always wanted a big red barn. Instead I have a small red house! :) Love the old mail boxes too.

  2. Great perspective! Sometimes it's good to try a different angle than the one we see if we're just standing on our feet. This is simple beautiful! The spring flowers really add a nice splash of additional colors.
