American Icon




I pass by many a barn each day.  Most of them don't look like much.  Weathered boards, rusty roofs, and sagging doors seem to be the norm.

Yet, they are like pieces of art dotting my countryside.   They tell their tales of hard times and serious work.

I am linking up today with Tom's Barn Collective.  If you are a lover of barns, like me, I hope you will pay him a visit.

  1. I pass a couple of Barns every time I go into town and I always want to stop and take a picture.
    You've inspired me to do so today!
    Beautiful~
