On the Road Less Traveled

I found this old barn on a road less traveled.  The roof looks in pretty bad shape.

Have a good week everyone and thanks for stopping.
Until Next Time

A faded beauty!

Beautiful. I hope someone can keep it up to just the right state to maintain the character.

A metal roof would do much to start preserving this amazing old barn.

So glad you got a photo of that barn while it is still standing. They're all soon going to be missing from the landscape.

It should be repaired, but it's so beautiful the way it is too, isn't it?

The barn is probably older than the trees. Lovely shot.

The roof does look to be in poor shape, but the barn is very cool! I can't tell if the roof was originally green or if that's just moss or lichen growing on the shingles.

What a pretty setting, surrounded with the trees in the background.
I love those roads less traveled!!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

It's a pretty barn even in it's advanced age. It makes me sad to see so many barns being neglected.

Deanna said...

Oh I do like that barn and that roof with all that moss on top is perfect.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

I do love the old barns - wish I could gather them all up and keep them safe.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

That roof does look in pretty bad shape. Almost like it could snap off at any moment! But it's still beautiful :)

Barb said...

Very green - even on the roof!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

The barns are beautiful out your way, even if they are in rough shape!

JOY @ http://joysjotsshots.blogspot.com/ said...

Sad to see barns go down, but the moss sure did make a very nice shot to enJOY.

Oh, I know Barb, I was so lucky and everything is great; new hair, new season and new ATTITUDE. hahahaha

Dearest Barb,
As we cannot see these barns, I really enjoy your picture♡♡♡ I wonder how old it is, love the moss on the roof which expresses signs of its age(^_^)v And love the angle you chose.

PS> I'm so sorry for my belated comment. And I really am grateful for your sweet comment for me. I'm doing my best, my friend.

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Sometimes you find the best things on those "roads less traveled!" It's a beautiful old barn and photo. Thanks, Barb, for your prayers and good wishes on my recent health scare. Yes, I was definitely relieved with the results!!
Hugs, Cindy

Leaky roof and all- its still makes a pleasant country scene.

Have a wonderful weekend Barbs ~:)

Terri said...

Nice old barn- I like the shape of this one.

Lisa Sall - Sall's Country Life said...

A Beauty Indeed!

Custom Comforts said...

What a neat barn. I think barns in any shape are always beautiful - they speak of time gone by and history. They always seem like they would have lots of stories to tell. I know when we were kids we played in my Grandpa's barn and have such wonderful childhood memories. Beautiful photo.
