We have such glorious summers in NW Washington - mild temperatures - bright blue skies and lovely green scenery. Absolutely the best summers of any place we've lived - and we've lived a lot of places.
Alaska, Texas, back to Alaska, back to Texas (it's a long story), Wisconsin, Northern California, more northern in California, Kansas, back to California (in the lower desert), northern California and finally NW Washington. We've stopped now - we've found the perfect place to live. Long lovely springtime, mild and beautiful summers, good and rainy autumn and mild winters. Let's see some of the barns in perfect summer settings.
A favorite barn - always ready for a photo shoot
It sits atop a lovely little hillside
Some barns are old and weary - sitting in green hayfields
Sad but not lonely - the cows are in the barnyard
Well tended with the third crop of hay this summer growing in the fields
A great mountain backdrop - with corn to the right of the barn and hayfield in front
I've shown this one before - but it almost takes my breath away each time we pass and I just have to take one more photo. The field is about ready for harvest.
A drive in the country takes us past so many beautiful farms
A wider view shows us four farms - looking around we counted 17 farms visible from this same spot.
