Spring Wishes

Filed under: Buildings,Farm — Laura R @ 2:59 PM

I took these photos last April which seems so long ago.

Although not as far away as next April.

I am wishing for spring to hurry.

Adding a touch of red to wish you all Happy Valentine’s Day.

  1. It’s starting to feel a little bit like spring around here. Yay!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  5. I saw daffodils blooming in Seattle yesterday! They made me smile. Hopefully you’ll be seeing some soon, too.

  7. Thank you for the Valentine’s greeting. I had a nice day if not a litte lonely this evening but it’s always comforting to read the comments from my blogging friends.

    Have a wonderful week….Vicki

  8. The brick silos are great, especially the cute roof! We’ve got a long ways to go before spring here…..

  9. I love the silos, too…feels almost like I can reach out and touch them.

  10. Great shots! I like the wind thingies in the 1st shot – I’m sick & I just can’t think of the name of them right now… sorry!
    Is that a see-through roof on the cows shelter?
    And those brick grain bins are WoW! You really got a great shot of them!!!

    Thanks so much for joining! =)

  11. Love barns and silos. We live out in the country so I am always shooting the different ones. This is a great post. Thanks for the visit. Genie

  12. I noticed when you linked up w/ MckLinky on Barn Charm that your photo didn’t show up in the list, so I fixed it & re-entered you… Thanks again for joining!

  13. Hi, thank you so much for stopping by to visit yesterday. I really love your silo photo! We have been having springlike weather in Central Oregon for about a month, but woke up to snow and it is coming down heavy. At least we got to pretend that spring was almost here! Take care and God bless, Kathy

  14. Love the green in these! 🙂 Great shots – esp. that last one. Enjoyed your commentary on the distance of April! 🙂 So very true!

  15. We have finally seen some snow melt. today if got up to 32 degrees so, that was nice. But, I am so ready for Spring and I want Spring to last for 3 or 4 months! LOL I don’t desire the super hot and humid summer. But, give me months and months of Spring and Autumn and I would be a happy girl!

  16. i’m starting to see more and more of these hopeful spring-is-coming posts in the blogosphere and i must say, I’M SCARED because that means it’ll be our turn to be sniffling and shivering too soon!

  17. I’ve never seen a brick silo! Any silo around here is made of galvanized steel. Thanks for visiting my blog… I had to chuckle at your account of the ‘robbery’! Play guns are used here.

  18. Very nice silo!!

    Comment by Samantha @TheKelleyEight — February 15, 2011 @ 7:42 PM

  19. Happy belated Valentine’s Day!

    I’m not sure if I am ready for spring yet, because that means mud!

    Comment by Jen — February 15, 2011 @ 10:24 PM

    • Midwinter thaw this week means time for cleaning up all the “surprises” left behind during the deep freeze when I was a wimp and did not go out with dogs each time. Stocking up on old towels for mud season.

  20. What a neat silo. Your photos are wonderful. I’m ready for Spring too. laurie

  21. Nice shots. I am thinking spring too.
    Are those silos or very large smokers?

    I think the small building on my blog is just a shed but lets ‘go’ for an outhouse. LOL

  22. While you’re wishing for spring, I’m thinking that you must be buried under several feet of snow. Am I right?


    A woman who always saw red,
    Could not get it out of her head;
    Her dreams were red-hot,
    Although she was not
    Exactly Miss Scarlett in bed.

  26. Spring really is just around the corner! That’s a great shot of that silo. I love those almost as much as I do barns and rusty old windmills!
    Happy REDnesday,

  32. We’re getting a tease of spring now, but I’m certainly holding my breath, or else it will snow in April.
