Thanks JoAnn for sharing this wonderful barn collection this week. Number 9 and 10 look like they could be right down the road from my place. "Happy Barn Hunting in the New Year."

Hello, great barn finds. I love all the trees too. Pretty scenic shots. Have a happy new week!

My favorite is the barn with the tree on the right side of the photo and the silo on the left. (the 5th photo, I think).
Have a great week!

I especially like that classic red barn and silo.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. After a hectic week leading up to it we kept ours quiet - which was just right. Santa brought us a mini lake in our backyard. Our high water table finally got its fill and all the rain turned into a lake. Luckily we did some engineering after it happened the first time and Roger has been pumping (when it hasn't been frozen). Now it's just a small pond, as it should be. But it looks like the pump will get a workout this winter!

Wonderful barns!

I love your new header! The skies are brooding, full of winter.
I always enjoy seeing your barns because it's fun to speculate how they looked when they were in their glory. How long ago was it? How many animals were sheltered inside? Did children play in the hay loft? Were picnics held at the site? They are such an important part of Americana!
Happy New Year, JoAnn!

Falling-down barns are a bit sad to e. They must have been cause for great joy when they were built and housed a family's livestock and farm equipment. So much life, so many dreams...then one day the family and livestock are gone and the barn succumbs to the elements and is history. It is good to have pictures of these barns and remember .

Love your barn pictures.

And they are all gorgeous aren't they. I see you have a couple of my favorites too.

Love the cloud header.

Such beautiful barns! I find especially the old ones fascinating. KathyB above has so well written what also I feel.
Happy New Photography Year!

What a beautiful collection of barns!

Who does not love an old barn? Here they are disappearing. Falling down. Being torn down. Such a great part of history. Thanks so much for visiting the Garden Spot and leaving nice comments. I appreciate that very much. Happy New Year.

I loved seeing these! I think the barns in the 7th and 8th photos look huge!

Julie Fukuda said...

They look like they are hibernating with the rather winterish backgrounds.

Sharon Chapman said...

So nice to see your barn photos. My favorite barn between Fall City and Carnation has disappeared. So sad when these wonderful barns are gone.

The first one with the fall color is great. It even looks as if it's got a leaded window in it. The barn in the 9th photo is my favorite. Love seeing old barns even the ones that are going back to the earth! Best ~ Mickie.
