the old painted barn

There is an old barn nearby that has been painted with a mural about 10 years ago.

The painted mural is looking almost as weathered as the barn is.


The shingled wall is getting wavy as the roof and floor sags from age.


The barn is still used for hay storage and the other side of it looks in better shape
than this side does.

This picture was taken one spring in front of the barn.



                                               This is another part of the barn where hay is stored.




Just look at that old glass doorknob!

This is the view from the barn.  Pretty nice eh?

I went to town today and took pictures on the way to and from.

I can't wait to show them to you.

Fall in all it's splendor.

See you soon.

Blessings,

Pamela

  1. Can you trade door knobs? What a lovely view from that barn. The barn itself is a nice view. Hope that the owners are able to keep up with it as there are far too many barns falling into ruin. They are just so big and expensive to maintain.

  5. That barn is definitely 'pretty nice'. I love the weathered old shakes and the faded colors.
    It must be still solid if it's still in use!

  11. Pamela, I'm really sorry I've missed many of your recent posts - I've become a Follower today though so I'll try to do better! Only thing is I'm leaving in a week on the big sub-Antarctic adventure (NZ & Aus. too) so may not have much Internet access. I'll do my best though to keep in touch dear.

    Love the barn pics. Looks like a great visit to Maine - bet you enjoyed the shopping and scenery. We used to spend a lot of time there when we lived in New England.

    Have a great almost here weekend - Autumn days are the best!

    Hugs - Mary

  16. That barn looks wonderful, saggy, yet very picture worthy. The mural is wonderful, isn't it.
    The old door would be a great place to photograph someone.
    Have a lovely day my friend,
    Hugs, Cindy
