Barn Charm


My barn this week is again a drive-by shot while driving through part of Iowa a few weeks ago.  The barn is one of many abandoned barns we saw dotting the winter landscape.   It probably isn't noticed in the summer when the trees in front have leaves.  

This shot of it isn't very clear, but I liked the background.  It was a beautiful drive with just the right amount of snow making the landscape pretty but leaving the roads clear.  Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Sorry about that, Ginny. I was just beginning to work on this post and I hit the wrong key and it published! I don't know how that happens because I'm quite sure I didn't click on Publish.

  5. O.K. I'm back and I see your post now! I must have come by right when you were in the middle of posting it! Is this the real color of the photo? It is amazing. It looks very desolate as well.

  11. You really have your drive by shots down to an art. It does look turn of the century'ish.

  12. This one looks like it could be found here. I really like it! It seems like that's the way it is here too, when the leaves are gone I see all kinds of things that I never saw before.

  16. Love the old barn - I always wonder about the life inside them - mice, feral kitties, birds, skunks, what?

  24. Hi,

    I came across your site thefarmersdaughter2.blogspot.com while searching Google for blogs talking about growing/gardening equipment and related keywords and was wondering if you'd be open to doing a sponsored blog post.

    We have a site that growing/gardening equipment and are looking for more exposure online.

    Our budget for this is initially $20 for the post and we would give you the blog post (gardening related & already written) as well as a picture to post. All you would have to do is post it.

    Here's a sample post we did on another blog: http://homefurniturebiz.com/grow-lights/

    We're really just testing out different bloggers, and if you bring some good traffic, we're totally open to doing an annual banner ad!

    Also if you have some other blogs, please send them over and I'll take a look and we might be open to doing a post on those as well!

    Let me know if you'd be open to this!

    Regards,

    Vanessa
