Barn on Sunday



A couple of weeks ago the husband said he had a barn just for me.  We hopped in the Jeep and drove out to an old farm that sits on a secluded patch of 200 acres.  The family still owns the land, but doesn't utilize the barn, or old house, for any true purpose.  

It has become a haven for rabbit and bird hunting.  After leaving the main road, which is pretty small, you wind down a dirt road and into another world.  The only thing you hear is the wind and the few animals scurrying around in the barn.  

Heaven

Linking up with Tom's Barn Collective today.  

I listened to this fine lady while composing this post and enjoying a pot of coffee, on an early Sunday morning.

  4. What a wonderful photo subject your husband located for you, Michelle! I can image that you took many photos and that you may even think of returning with the seasonal changes. It's a terrific old barn!

    1. In our area it would have been used for tobacco. Tobacco was king back in the heyday of this barn. Not so much anymore.

  10. Aw, nice barn----I wonder what the owners are going to do or when they are going to do something. Probably waiting for big money to show and buy.

    1. I suspect the land will be divided up when the patriarch passes away.

  16. I think you love the rural life - the serenity, the absence of the hustle and bustle of the city, the flora and fauna. The rural life certainly has a lot of advantages!

    1. Lowell, my husband and I lived in the D.C. metro area for a number of years before returning to our small home town, to raise our children. I find rural life much preferable to city life!

  19. How sad, that the owners, do not utilize the house there.... So sad.

    It must be going to ruin, somewhat like the barn.

    Sad.....

    But I'm glad, you enjoyed, the visit. :-)))

  24. Stay right there, Michelle. One good gust of wind and that will be toothpicks.

  25. Great shot! Looks like anything staying in the barn would be getting a lot of good fresh air!

  26. I love that song and artist!

    This barn is picturesque I'm thinking someone will come along and offer good money for that barn wood one day! Reclaimed wood is so in vogue now for use in decorating,

  27. It's sad that the barn has no true purpose anymore; they were built to be used and to last, which this one certainly has done. My husband is a barn spotter for me, too... isn't it nice!
