An old barn surrounded by new houses - on the way to Birch Bay State Park
A working barn - with cows in the field in front
On the right side you see small blue "posts" - those are protective covers for new trees planted on the farm. In our county (not sure if this is a state or county policy) if you have wetlands on your property and plant native trees you don't have to pay taxes on that portion of your land. These are mere sticks now - but in less than three years many of them will be nearly 10 feet tall, and the land reforested for habitat for birds and animals. We see acres and acres of these plantings every summer.
The front of the barn
A shed and a small barn - not used anymore. The surrounding fields are planted in potatoes or corn every year.
I love the diagonal placement of the boards That took some measuring and cutting.
This barn can be seen from a roundabout - this first shot is a little blurry - but I liked the two trees framing the barn. Don drove slowly on the roundabout so I could get pictures - no stopping allowed in roundabouts.
One of my favorite barns - well kept and a tidy barnyard.
