Farm, Barn and Homestead parties

Filed under: Buildings,Farm — Laura R @ 8:18 AM

I know, I know, I keep promising to write an actual post but running even a small acreage can keep one busy 24/7.  Wait until I have more outdoor chores to do!
For now I am going to share a few photos of the yard and the surrounding area.

Seems like yesterday...


After a few days rain and warmer temps


a place down the road


In very good shape for its age


Every Monday join a great group of Homesteaders linking together for a Homestead Barn Hop

Monday evening  for more wonderful photographs of barns from around the world, hop over to
Barn Charm.

Outdoor Wednesday  is celebrated at  A Southern Daydreamer.

Later in the week visit Verde Farm for another link up with Farm Friend Friday.

  3. Looks like your snow is slowly disappearing – I’m so glad all of our snow is gone! (Makes for a “fun” time when doing animals chores…).
    Love the pictures,

  4. Time does seem to get away, so I can well understand your dilemna. Just read a couple earlier posts about thrift stores – my favorite places to shop. I’ve posted blogs about book, clothing and other finds at our local places. As a friend explained. “shopping retail is no challenge.”

  5. That’s a pretty little barn with the stone foundation.

  6. I like the look of that barn! Looks like you won’t have snow much longer. Here in Alaska we have a good long ways to go before our snow melts.

  7. Your barn with the stone foundation reminded me of another nearby barn that I can photograph!!! I love that architectural design, and your photos capture it so well.

  23. A fine series of pictures. We had melted off almost completely, but now it’s snowing this morning. Warmer daytime temperatures should melt it again…I hope!
