Barn and Wild Phlox

I've shown you this barn before. 



Here it is from a different angle.

But this post is more about the wild phlox and the other out buildings near this barn.  My friend has been telling me to come out and take pictures and so this morning I did since it is such a beautiful day.









I will be showing more pictures of the phlox on Friday Fences.

Linking to Barn Charm at Bluff Area Daily.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week everyone.

Until next time,


Barb

Oh Barb how amazing is that phlox? Love your images. I too love to tramp through barns and fields but have not done much of that lately.

Barns are one of the things I miss about growing up on a farm. So many good times playing in them.

Love the shot of the barn from the different angle and the shot of the two silos with the wild phlox. The wild phlox really does steal the show!

Carletta said...

Wonderful barn shots but the image of the two silos fronted by the phlox is capturing most of my attention.
Lovely images Barb!

Carole M. said...

oh wow; I love the silos with the phlox in flower; how beautiful. Glad you went Barbara!

Diane said...

Those purple phlox are simply wonderful growing beside the barns, very photo worthy indeed! Great post my friend. Diane

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Isn't that beautiful!? Like a sea of purple! Great photos, Barb!

Linda said...

What a wonderful view with the flowers! The barn is nice enough on its own...but wow!

Zoey said...

What a great spot for that wild phlox.

I have been removing it from my gardens, but letting it seed in the wild areas. I do love it, but it can take over so quickly that I now yank it out of the main gardens.

I think it's gorgeous with orange poppies.

Nancy said...

What an unusual barn with the elevated fence. And of course, the phlox steals the show! Beautiful, Barb. :)

Tanya said...

Once again you've managed to capture some lovely images. You truly have a "gift" with photography!
I am lucky enough to see your amazing work in person and I am awe of your talent. Again, I am so honored to receive such beautiful works of art.
Wishing you a beautiful week, Barb. xoxo

We had a flooding rainstorm all day yesterday and all night. Maybe that is why I am unable to bring up your photos this week. What a bummer. When I see comments like the one from Theresa, I really do want to see them. Will try after I get home from school. genie

Genie said...

YEAH! I came back and gave it another try and had success. No wonder you are getting mucho accolades on this one. It is magnificent if you can call a barn magnificent. The flowers add so much beauty to the scene...and 2 silos...that is always impressive. I agree. This is awesome. genie

Jan n Jer said...

Beautiful pics Barb...very nice!

Keetha Broyles said...

These pictures bring the word idyllic to mind. Love those two silos side by side and with the purple blossoms out front they are just exquisite.

Annmarie Pipa said...

wow..the phlox is such a beautiful addition!

What beautiful pictures! That phlox is wonderful. Since I've only been with barn charm for a short while, this one is new to me. So pretty.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

That's a beautiful barn photo! And I love the wild phlox. I had some growing at the edge of my garden, but it got plowed up. Will have to get another start and try again.
Have a wonderful day!

Ruta said...

Oh, that phlox is absolutely beautiful!! Reminds me of my great-grandmother's house...it even got me choked up!

Oh, that is beautiful. A flood of color!

Faye said...

I can just imagine the fragrance. Such a bonus for the photographer. Is this a wild phlox? Never seen anything like it. Look forward to Friday Fences. And I do remember this barn and that odd fence which your explained was a "cattle router."

My Little Home and Garden said...

Phlox is so pretty, especially a mass of it when it moves in the breeze. Lovely photos, Barb.

Terrie said...

Just so lovely and pretty purple/pink flowers. What a beautiful season and brilliant days ahead!

Can't wait to see what else you will be sharing. hugs, Cherry

Hi Barb, The barn is amazing and those phlox are heavenly. I bet the scent was wonderful. Looks like it was a pretty day.
Your photos are always the best.
Have a great evening.

Barb: these are lovely pictures, however, the flowers are not phlox. They are commonly confused with phlox, but they are Dames' Rocket (Hesperis matronalis). If you look at the flowers, these plants have 4 petals arranged in a cross. All phlox have 5 petals. All phlox are native to North America, but the beautiful plant in your images is native to Europe and has become well established throughout eastern North America. It is, in fact, a weed.

Marie said...

Such gorgeous phlox! And wonderful barn! Forgive me if I don't comment on everything...having trouble seeing all the pics on people's blogs!
