Barns


This week I was not out and about with the camera so I thought I would look back at some pictures we had taken in the last year. I found these pictures of old barns that are in the area. There is one that is no longer there as it was torn down to make room for a future shopping mall. It is too bad as barns are dying out in the landscape. Farmers are putting up newer structures for storage and livestock. Barns are wonderful and unique structures. Join Mary at the Little Red House for more wonderful mosiacs as part of Mosiac Monday.

Beautiful...old barns have so much character and their carekeepers are letting them slip from our grips!!!

Hi and I love your pretty mosaic of barns. I too love to see them and wonder what their history was. Thanks for coming to see me today and I hope you'll come back sometimes for another visit.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia;)

Hi Val
We'll have to make sure we keep these photos of barns because as you said, one day they'll all be gone.
I often wonder if my Grandmother's farm is still there or if it's a big subdivision now.

A really pretty mosaic you made today. I grew up in the midwest so Barns were everywhere back in the good old days. Yes, how sad that they are disappearing.
