Barns and Apple Trees

When I first saw this barn I thought it had one side that was brick - but it is just the way the paint has worn off in the weather. 

 A round barn - I'd never seen one near here before - this one has a tractor peeking out the front - perhaps it is used for storing farm equipment.
 These barns are all just south of the town of Ferndale, WA - on a road with sweet homes and pretty old barns - no farming going on here - just  barns to enjoy.
 And ancient apple trees in bloom
 The little blue sign on the front of the lower building is a baby chick - it seems to be advertising a certain breed of chicken.
Another long, low chicken shed, near a well kept garden - I want to go back in the summer and see what is growing there. 
 Patch patch patch!
 Another apple tree - another shed.
 A magnificent tree by a fabulous old barn
 Fields of dandelions in front of a barn with a new shingle roof.
And an original little farm house - leaning over and ready for a collapse.

I was driving in rural Alberta yesterday. Saw some barns and derelict farm buildings and thought of your blog!

...JoAnn, what an interesting collection, my favorite is the white weathered one with the wreath. I pass by many collapsing houses and barn in you travels. Thanks so much for being here today, stop back again.

A great series of barns!
I like the 'patch, patch, patch' and the 'fields of dandelions' photos the best! And, of course, the apple trees in bloom are very nice, too!

I wonder if the wind were to blow, would the last barn topple over. How amazing are the windows in that low chicken shed, very flash indeed. As always, LOVE all your barns, JoAnn. I am always amazed how many different and interesting barns you happen upon.
