Barn Charm 25






Winter is slowly slipping away 
here on the prairie ~  
blankets of snow melting 
revealing fields, hay piles, and junk piles...
The barns tower over it all 
all year long
strong and sturdy
they are to the
prairie what light houses
are to the ocean vessels.



These old barns have seen many blizzards...
guided many farmers with a rope tied to it's door
or the light shining from the loft.
If only these barns could talk....



I wonder if Richard Whately was a farmer?






Time to visit some barns...
old, new, empty,
or home to the herd...
they are all
a great part of American history.


Hope you are enjoying
some great spring weather where you are,

and Barn Charm #25

Your barn photos and collage are wonderful. But what caught my eye was the pics of Josie and Max in the sidebar! Josie looks like my first Golden, Sundance; and Max looks like Tanner, the one I have now. Adorable.
