Barn Charm 86


This barn is in my hometown and is the subject on one of the town's postcards sold in local shops.  It is not situated where you safely can get a shot from the road.   The owners are distantly related on my mother's side so we stopped one day and asked permission.


It's a beautiful place.

She's a beauty, for sure, esp under that blue sky... is it painted black or is that just really dark barn wood?
Love all that green, too!

Thanks in advance for joining, Amy! =)

Tricia, is isn't painted. That's the natural weathered barn wood. The sun was high so they are a little contrasty.

That barn looks like it has a lot of history behind it. Very nice.

I bet it made a very nice postcard. Beautiful area, too.

I'm struck by the dark weathering of all that wood. I wonder if it's a different species than most commonly used in middle America?

Having trouble remembering my nouns today--an age thing, I think. :-) Anyway, I think the way the boards are laid out in the eaves is just beautiful--so straightforward, functional and visually appealing. How old is the barn do you think?

Love this barn. You just do not see black barns here. This is so neat. Nice that you could get up close and personal .
