Barn, Bins and Windmill

This barn is on the way to the next town.  I've been past it many times but  today  I had my camera so stopped and took a couple of pics.

I'm still having trouble posting and seeing my reading list in Firefox and still using Internet Explorer.  I'm very frustrated.

Have a great week.  Until next time.

A very unusual barn. Glad you had your camera. I'm glad they are taking care of the barn. Since tobacco is a thing of the past, many barns have been left to fall. Sad.

so neat and tidy; you could live in it!

Mari said...

It's a beauty! I love the cupola, the brick and the red doors. Great find!

Donna said...

The barn is wonderful and so well taken care of. I adore all the barn pics!
Hugs,

This is a little beauty! Such a nicely kept barn.

This is a beautiful barn! So pristine and strong looking - hopefully it will remain cared-for and pretty for many years! Glad you found it!

Gorgeous barn, Barb! Can't remember the last time I saw a brick barn.

Have you tried Opera as a browser? I've been using for over a year and although it has it's own kinks, it's the only browser I can use with Vista. Good luck!

Carol said...

Wow, this one is a real beauty! The brick is so unusual and costly for a barn but it looks wonderful.

Tanya said...

this is a great looking barn!

Amy Burzese said...

Great barn and your photos too! Lovely. You might try Google Crome.

TexWisGirl said...

i would suggest google chrome. it solved a lot of issues for me (and other folks i've seen post about it, too)

my lordy, this barn is perfect! rounded roof, BRICK, cupolas, pretty, pretty, pretty!!! i like seeing the grain bins and corn cribs, too. don't see many/any here...

This barn is a beauty, and so well kept. Love the curvy, clean lines.

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

I love the shape of this barn, and the fact that it's brick!

Tricia Hays said...

WoW! What an elaborate looking barn, it's gorgeous & I SOOO LOVE that roof!!! I've never ever seen silos like that, how awesome

Have you tried Google Chrome? I'm terribly sorry you're having problems... I had problems w/ Firefox, too, & switched to Chrome... much much better, now

Thank you for joining =)

Wow, you don't see brick barns very often! I love the roof line, too! Great shots, Barb! This is a fantastic barn.

Faye said...

Very graceful roofline--looks Dutch to my uninformed eye. Any idea what the barn is used for--dairy? Glad you stopped to capture this unusual barn.

Yesterday I had a about a 3 hr. session with a young geek squad and he was praising Firefox--actually installed it for me to "play" with. Today I'm slinking back to IE even though it's so slooowwww!

Rose said...

Oh, this is a real beauty...could not ask for anything more. Except with I could see inside...but that is true of all the barns.

Elaine said...

Nice!! You don't see too many brick barns, and this one is not a shape you would imagine a brick barn to be.

lisa Moran, Bilancia Designs said...

I have never seen a brick barn in my life...how unusual!
Looks like you could move right in! :)
Have a great week! xo

I don't remember ever seeing a brick barn before; it must be very sturdy.

andrea@townandprairie said...

What a unique shape to the roof! And I absolutely love that little door. I wish I had one on my home loke that. So charming, so country, so come on in and have a cup of coffee!

Linda said...

gorgeous photos of the barns and windmills.

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

You have some great barns down your way! Love the charming old windmill...the huge new ones really creep me out when we drive past them!

Hi Barb, What a gorgeous and so neat and tidy barn. Very different to see a brick barn I think, or maybe I just never see them here.
Glad you had your camera to capture this beauty.
Sorry to read you are having blog troubles with posting. I have heard this from others too. I hope it fixes soon. I know how frustrating this can be.

Thank you also for the kind comments and visits over the last month. You blessed me more then I can say.
Have a great day and wonderful summer.
See you again soon.
Hugs, CMD

Beautiful pictures Barb! You don't see too many brick barns. Enjoy your weekend, Gail

Liz @ Sit With Me In My Garden said...

Wow, I've never seen a barn made with those tiled blocks before! I've always had a thing for the silos made of them. That's a really amazing looking barn- thanks for sharing!

Marie said...

Great see-through silos! Love the barn too! Thanks for your kind well-wishes on my blog about my surgery! All is going very well!
