the old barn

This is the old barn I posted on Monday.

This is four hours later with the snow melted off the roof.




Love the old doors ~ greyed and weathered.


The steel roof is rusty with age.





I don't know how old this barn is but it hasn't been used for at least 30 years.
I expect with the few boards missing in the gable end
and in the front door that there are some critters that call
it home now ~ birds, mice, prehaps racoons or skunks.
It has managed to survive wind, rain, snow, hot sun and Halloween.
I hope it stands a lot longer ~ a testament to the hard work
of a farmer who stored hay and/or machinery in it for many years.
Now it is retired and resting. 

After posting my blog yesterday Sunday morning, snow and sundogs,
I realized that my header pictures also has a sundog in it.  I took
it last February.  It is smaller and more typical ones we see here.

I'm glad you stopped by again today.  Be sure to stop by  
for Outdoor Wednesday # 106

Blessings,
Pamela

  2. A lovely old barn, thank you for sharing the photographs of it. I am sure where the few boards are missing in the gable end plenty of birds have flown in there for protection from the weather!!

  7. I love the old barn and your drive to church was very pretty also. I am glad you got some of the P.E.I. tulips too-they do cheer up the winter days.

  8. Hi Pam!
    I still see your under lots of snow out East!
    Lovely photos ...I just love photos of barns!
    The snow is gone here ...doesn't last long and everything is green once again. Still not used to these easy winters!! People here complain when it dips to -9 and I just laugh!

  9. Beautiful pictures Pamela! We've had rain here for the past few days so it's not quite so pretty out. But I hear we're getting snow tomorrow - if only some sun would come out for pictures!!

  10. Hello dear Pamela,
    I love the photo of the old barn, they almost seem to have life sometimes, don't they. It appears that this one's life is coming to a close, not too soon though, hopefully. It is very picturesque.
    Thanks for the chance to see it.
    Hugs, Cindy

  14. That's a classic old barn. It has aged gracefully by giving faithful service to the retired farmer. Though the roofs and the doors have seen better days, it is still a sight to behold. You have an eye for photography, Pamela. Cheers!
