Barn Charm






While out for a walk recently {before the week of rain} I stopped to take some pictures of the barn down the road.  

These are pictures of one end of the barn and the doors.


The owner has recently done some major landscaping around this end of the barn and removed all the weeds, long grass and rolls of fencing and other farm equipment that were laying there for years.  Now one can clearly see the doors of this old barn.  Love them!!



This was a dairy farm years ago and the stalls and stanchions are in the lower level through the big doors.


I think this was the milking room on the right.

It's all looking pretty shabby but I love it. 
The upper level of the barn is still used to store hay and the doors are on the other end.


I'm joining Tricia for BARN CHARM.

Weather update:
The rains have gone {we received 78 mm which is about 3 inches} and we had a lot of sunshine today.  The sky is totally clear this evening and there is a risk of frost then the the weather is warming up this week to summer like temperatures.   ;-)

Have a great week!

Blessings,

Pamela

  1. Great old barn Pamela...the older they are, the more run down they are, the more picturesque they are and the old ones, very old ones, are my favorite. Beautiful photos Pamela....you really should publish a book with all of your photos...they are so professional and real and I love how they all seem to tell a story even without words...they are a pleasure to look at and I love your style. Thanks for sharing...Hugs, Kathy

  6. Your new header is so gorgeous Pamela. it reminds me of the 9 years that we lived surrounded by orchards in the Okanagan Valley. Hope the rain is letting up . We've been glad to see the rain these past few days. The old barn is wonderful and still treasured by the owners it seems.

  7. Hi Pamela, Well, You are finally going to get some good weather. I am so happy for you. Our 3 day weekend was so cold on Saturday and Sunday. Today was really nice. I would love it like today all year long....in the 70's and sun. We did get some of my flowers planted.Well, actually, Jim did it ....I still have my hand all bandaged.

    I love the old barn. If we ever get caught up around here, we want to go out and take some photos of old barns, too. Hope your week is lovely.

  9. That's a different barn. Strange how the siding runs in two directions. It looks to be quite old, too.

  16. I love seeing closeups of barns. So many here seem to be too far off the road and I'm usually way too timid to trespass. :)

  19. Glad you focused on some of the details of the barn. Most of the time we are only able to get the shot from the road.

  20. Your barn photos are beautiful, old barns are fabulous for photos, aren't they. I like dairy barns especially, when I lived in northern BC as a kid, we lived in a dairy farming community. We rented a house that was on a dry dairy cow farm. I loved seeing and singing to the cows.

  25. Love your barn find!! Those doors are the best and I love the shaker siding on the "milking room" that would make a great back drop for family pictures!! THanks for sharing Pam!
