Newer Barns

Last week we visited some of the older, rundown barns in our area - let's take a tour of some of the nicer ones.
 Neat and tidy - and a pretty red tractor
 The house looks like a barn too - though it was purpose built as a house, not converted from a barn.

 The ivy covered fence sets off an older barn, still in use.
 Not quite as new, or well kept
 Red barns always cheer up the countryside.
 This is a very common shape for barns in our area - in the foreground is a nice field of hay, about ready to be harvested.
 And an identically shaped barn - with a newly planted field in the foreground.  Very few differences in the two barns - one has a weathervane, the other doesn't.  One is in open fields, the other up against a mountain, one has a red tree on the left, the other has a green tree.
And our last one has fallen all to pieces.  We've watched over the years as it slowly collapsed to the ground.

That first barn and its accompanying house are very attractive!

Red barns, pristine white painted barns, wood barns.....all are beautiful. I am always amazed at your barns, JoAnn.

Hello, wonderful barn series. I like the barn home. Neat design.

Enjoy your day and week ahead. Happy 4th of July!

Somehow, the white barn with the red tractor does not qualify as a barn - it's just too neat and pretty! I love the one with the vines on the fence … makes me think of grape vines and then wine and … where was I? Hope you enjoy the weekend!

Great selection of barns, though I always hate to see when they've collapsed.
I hope you had a good weekend on "our" side of the Sound and hopefully explored some of Port Townsend while you were there! You picked a great time, though this coming weekend (20th-22nd) is the Sequim Lavender Festival, always a pretty time around here.
