while traveling the country back roads,
I spotted another red barn.
As you can see from the dry grass,
our prairie lands are in need of water.
The temperatures continue to be in the 90's.
I'm looking for Autumn.
Where are you?
Linking today with The Barn Collective
Thanks, Tom for hosting.
to view other barns from around the world.
You sure did find a red barn Meggie! It's interesting how the fence posts are what ever the farmer could find, very thrifty! Thanks for sharing this week and I hope that you continue traveling the backroads in search of more barns. Tom The Backroads TravellerReplyDelete
Actually, it's not uncommon to mix the metal stake with the cedar post, for fencing. It probably has something to do with saving money. Thanks again, for giving me a reason to search for old barns.Delete
Beautiful old barn!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Brian....I do enjoy your photo blog....your work is exceptional !Delete
Coming here from the Barn Collective. Nice red barn. Red ones are still my favorite...ReplyDelete
Enjoyed your barns, too. Goodness, what a story about the collapsed barn. I, too, have experienced flood waters, just not with my home. Thanks for your comment.Delete
That sure is a red barn. It looks like it could tell some stories.
Our cycle of heat was broken on Sunday.. the heavens just opened... rain , sweet rain, is here.
our fields are bare and so dry.
Love your header Meggie..
wishing you a happy week. valx
Hi Valerie.....I am still waiting for our rain to come. My header is from my own garden. They have given me many years of beauty, blooming like this in early spring.Delete
Red and rust are two of my favorite colors.ReplyDelete
me, too ....and they is plenty to find in my part of Texas !Delete
This has such a feel to it...it is hard to explain. Almost as if it is looking back in time.ReplyDelete
I can't help but wonder, when I photograph old buildings, what it was like when they were first built. Oh, the stories to be told about them......Delete
Oh Meggie, there is just something about a red barn and a rusty roof, why I would pack up right now and move if it could be mine. :)ReplyDelete
I'm thinking that it's really nice barns have traditionally been painted red. They brighten the countryside and make wonderful landmarks. When I was a kid, we lived in an old farmhouse that had a split-level barn. There was a sloped drive up to the front but the lower back exited into a feedlot. My siblings and I would take our red wagon to the top of the slope and ride down at top speed, but if the wagon tipped over, you got a painful sore knee from the cinder driveway.ReplyDelete
