Grandma Barb’s This and That

Old White Barn

These pictures were taken on March 29th when we had sunshine and all the snow had melted.  Since then we have had 22 inches of snow and it's snowing again today.  I am so tired of it but I keep telling myself not to complain.  We need the moisture and think of all those  people that are having flooding.

This farm site belongs to a friend and has no house.  But it has 2 barns.  I am saving one of the barns for next weeks Barn Charm though.

East Side


North Side with just a little snow


South Side


I didn't go around to the wet side as it was too muddy.  Maybe I'll go back when things have greened up.

I really like the cupola


An old pump on the East side.

Thanks for stopping!  I hope you are all having a sunny day.
Until next time

That is a really beautiful barn! I love the cupola and the old pump. I'm sorry you're still getting snow there. It's unreal the weird weather we're still getting although our snow is gone and the sun is shining today. Take care. It'll soon be nice and green. Blessings, Pam

It's a beauty!
I love white barns. They're some of my favorites.
The cupola is a gem, and all it's windows along the east side.
Can't wait to see the other one next week!

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

Nice find! I love that it's white - even though I do like red barns, and the old water pump is fantastic. I really do hope you get some warmer weather soon!

I really like the barn. it is nice and BIG> It has a great cupola. Since there are two barns and no how are the barns being used at all? MB

Buttons said...

Love the cupola funny we have them on our barn and I had no idea that is what they are called. Thank you. Love this barn cannot wait to see next weeks.
Spring is here whatever that means:) B

I love the pump! Be careful of the ground around it though in case it's not strong. You are such a pioneer- scouting all these fantastic photo scenes!

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

Wow, Barb! I am loving this barn and the Buchanan House photos all together. Yes? Where is Spring? Yesterday was lovely here but today is windy cold and sunshine, which is deceiving. Hope you get Spring some time this week!!!

Dorothy Crutchfield said...

You have so many BIG barns where you live. This one is a beauty, and I love that cupola and weathervane also.
Sorry you are still getting snow.

What an interesting looking barn, and I love that cupola too, so interesting. So, so sorry about all of your snow, but you sure don't want all the rain we received along with the flooding.

Karen said...

You don't often see a whits barn, I like it. It snowed here on the weekend :(

Judy said...

What great shots Barb! I can't believe that you're still getting snow :( I still can't see any flowers popping out of the ground yet.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Wonderful barn - I just love the old ones. Wow - 22 more inches of snow - that is a lot - especially in Late April,right? Hope it melts soon.

Nell at njschout said...

Love this barn and its overgrown yard. Obviously was a great barn in its day! : )

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Nice barn and I love the cupola! We are having some weird weather this spring here. I heard we may have snow showers this week! Hope you get some nice weather soon.

Brian King said...

Great barn! I love the long sloping roof! Really nice find!

Carletta said...

The cupola steals the show!
It really is a vintage treasure.
The barn seems to have a fairly good tin roof and I'm thinking it could be restored fairly easily and be a real beauty.

Beautiful Barb! The detail on the cupola is fantastic and the old water pump certainly brought back memories.

eileeninmd said...

Great barn, Barb! Love the cupola! Have a happy day!

Faye said...

As always, such great photos, Barb. And I love how you always spot the interesting details. Can you even remember a time when you've had this much snow and so late in the season? No wonder everyone in your neck of the woods is suffering snow fatigue.

Jan n Jer said...

Love that cupola...it is hard not to complain when we sooo want warmer weather...this has been a very cold spring.

CAROLDEE said...

Oh Barb these are wonderful and YES that cupola is just the best!! Why no home on the property..hmm wonder what the story is on that one. Anyway these are great.. can't wait to see next week's! Great job!

Twyla and Lindsey said...

I just love everything about this barn! The siding, the shape, the cupola, etc. I hope spring comes to you soon. We are having lots of rain and flooding here in Missouri. Have a nice day! Twyla

Pride In Photos said...

Barb, I am so with you...the cupola just steals the show♥

Debbie said...

fancy, smancy cupola and a beautiful old place!!

it's april....how can it still be snowing??

(thanks for the email you sent, i was in some small sense relieved that no one lives there. because, i am jealous ;))))

Vee said...

Such gorgeous photos...sorry about the snow, but when it's this time of year, it surely can't last long and is good for slow absorption in the ground. I, too, love the cupola and the water pump, but mostly I'm appreciating what a fine eye you have for photography.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Neat barn! I love the cupola. So charming :)

Elaine said...

Lovely barn! Love the pump and cupola shots. The cupola looks like it was built by the Louden company like the barns at Creamer's Field, but I think the one in your photo was the extra fancy model. It has some wonderful details!

Sally in WA said...

Its hard to believe we've had so much snow! Hopefully you are starting to thaw out. Love the cupola on this barn and am looking forward to next week's photo.

Annmarie Pipa said...
