Grandma Barb’s This and That

Barn from my archives

Since the weather has been so cold and gloomy and nothing is planted in the fields yet, I went back in my archives to September 2012 for this barn photo.  It was taken somewhere near the Twin Cities.


I haven't felt much like posting lately.  The only sign of spring is the green grass so there isn't much interesting to take photos of...no pretty flowers, no flowering trees, no blue skies or pretty sunsets.  It rained a little overnight.  Still no sunshine but the temps are warmer.

Linking to Barn Charm 134

Thanks for stopping.  Have a beautiful week.
Until next time
Barb

It's looking really green here. We had all that flooding, followed by warm weather and everything is popping!
Love the barn, especially that pretty cupola!

It sure is a beauty! It is at last green here, and I do feel like doing more.

Karen said...

White barns are uncommon here. I like it nestled in the brown grass.

I am cold and miserable, too, Barb. I just wish spring would come for all of us.

I feel your pain, Barb. But spring will come -- I promise.

Love the shingles on this barn for some reason. xo

I am hoping your warm weather returns and spring shows it's face soon. When it does you will brighten up. Love the barn, interesting silo!!

I understand how you feel about not feeling like blogging...just don't do like me and delete everything you've ever done...you'll regret it....like me. :) Sunny skies will return again soon!

Terri said...

That's a giant of a barn- hope you get some more color soon!

Brian King said...

Anytime you have a silo, that's a bonus! Nice looking barn! You should get some color soon.

Love the barn and silo! It looks like a huge barn! Spring has arrived here, but it's been rainy and chilly. We saw snow Friday going to Branson! I've never seen snow in May in MO in all my 67 years.

It is a giant barn, love the silo. It is gloomy here today and we are having a chilly spring so far. Wishing you a happy week ahead.

This is a pretty barn. The cupola looks so small compared to the size of the barn itself. I'm sorry your weather is so bad. It's been sunny here for 11 days and I think the high pressure system over us this past week is keeping that low pressure over the mid-west. We've been fortunate but I think we're in for a change on Thursday with rain then much cooler and normal temperatures. I hope it improves for you. Blessings, Pam

I think I will have to name this one the Kentucky Derby Barn. That little do-diddy on the top reminds me of Churchill Downs. genie

Dawna Motz said...

That is one giant barn!, thanks for sharing it!

Nell at njschout said...

Might be an old one but it is a good one!

Bruce Clark said...

I always love the silos with the barns and this one is a winner.

Beth said...

The barn is beautiful!!

Cranberry Morning said...

Great photo! Love that little cupola on top. I'd never seen one like that before.

Kaya said...

lenalima said...

Deve ser muito ruim o frio daí!

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

Beautiful barn! Love the way you framed the shot.

Twyla and Lindsey said...

I feel your pain. Spring is very slow in coming this year and its not very motivating to take pictures on cloudy days. This is a great picture and since I missed it the first time I'm glad I got to see it! Twyla

Karen Frost said...

A beautiful photo - hope your spring comes soon! xx

Beth said...

Beautiful setting. I love the golden field in front of the barn and the texture of the roof due to its aging.
We are just finally getting sunshine here, but yesterday turned cool with drissling rain again.
However, my lavender and roses are coming to life as are others' around here, so that helps.

Small City Scenes said...

Yeah you have been having some colder weather but Spring shall stop by and then you will feel like doing more.
Nice barn with silo. MB

Barb said...

Don't worry, Barb - no signs of spring here in Breckenridge either. We got more snow through the night. Our time will come, I guess...

Prims By The Water said...

Spring has finally come to Michigan...tulips are blooming along with the flowering trees..still a nice barn. Janice

Tricia Hays said...
