Barn Charm



As soon as we have better weather, I hope to hit the back roads for some barn hunting.  Exploring the countryside is one of my favorite things to do, but our weather this winter hasn't been cooperating very well for road-tripping.  Especially on gravel roads.  This shot was taken just before our latest snow storm and it's certainly nothing to look at, is it?   I liked the green roof, they aren't seen very often in my area.

  1. The green roofs are great, aren't they? Almost as fun as the red barns. Great find.

  3. Hi Cheryl! The barn has charm, it's the trees without leaves that I miss in these winter pictures. I love driving the back roads in mid Missouri, there are great barns everywhere! I hope your snow melts soon! Have a nice day! Twyla

  6. I don't recall ever seeing a green roof on a barn.... most of the old barns around here have metal roofs.

  8. The green roof and the weathered wood gives this barn a lot of charm! It looks like there is even a little green grass.

  9. Any old barn, which is still standing, issssssssss something to look at. :-)

    I've given up on outdoor pics too. For the duration. And it does cut down on photo ops.

    Gentle hugs,

  10. I like the ones that are surprise colors! This is a lonely looking barn. Glad you stopped by and visited it!

  11. This one may be my favorite yet. I love when they are weathered and aged like me. Aren't you glad you live in MO (forget about the snow we've had lately) where we see barns around every turn?

  12. The roof looks in better shape than the barn. Kind of like a cool hairdo on an old lady.
    Our weather is on a slight warm up, hope it happens to you also.

  13. Oh I rather like it and the green roof is very reminiscent of my corner. Green doors and green roofs both. Did you get this latest storm?

  20. Hi Cheryl, I am one who loves the old barns like that... Makes me wonder what all went on in that barn through the years...

  28. I like that green roof- and I'm glad they didn't paint the old wood on the sides.

  29. I have a lot of these old dilapidated buildings near me. I really need to get out and shoot them. I would love to be able to go back in time and see them in their day.

  35. I don't know, I think it is kind of neat to look at. It's funny how some of the barns are so old, even if the houses are updated. It must be time consuming/expensive to do the barns because you sure see a lot of them that could use some TLC, at least in our area here. :)

  36. I like the green roof too! It's a great picture!

  37. I love the barns that have the little cupola on top like this one. Do you know if it serves a purpose beyond being decorative?

    PS: I agree about bangs -- I never let my hairdresser cut mine too short! When I was a child my Mom trimmed mine way above my eyebrows -- it may have been the Mamie Eisenhower trend, but they now look so funny in photos!

  39. There is the feeling of mystery and wonder when I see old abandoned barns such as this- it had a life at one time..

    warm wishes Cheryl
