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.

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.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
