Barns of NW Wisconsin - Barron County


My favorite barns are usually red, but I love the stone wall of this barn on SS north of Cameron, and the fact that it's built into the hillside. To my eye, this has most of the important features, i.e. a silo, a fence, a nice straight roof, and a field of wildflowers. (Yes, they're dandelions, but when you've seen only white for the past several months, the yellow dandelions look beautiful!) Unfortunately, cows, the major feature, are missing.


You know they're only weeds because you don't want them.
Look how pretty they are!

This week the grandkids are here. Lots to do, including working on VBS projects (You're right, it doesn't take normal people this long), going to Sand Creek on one of the warmer days, taking the grandpuppy to the vet for checkup and shots, going on nature walks, attending my weekly Bible study with a great group of friends, cleaning up the backyard, playing games, and if we get a really warm day - picking snails for our garden pond.

Sounds like a busy week ahead of you, and fun too. Enjoy! I was thinking I would be hard pressed to find subjects for barn posts! This is a very pretty one wiith the stone wall. And isn't it true we determine what are weeds? !

Love this stone barn! It makes me so sad to see barns in disrepair because I know they won't, in all probability, be restored. It is so important that we all go out , like you do, and record them on film.

TexWisGirl said...

i do like the stone foundation and all the things you mentioned. but i LOVE that fence. :)

Diane said...

What a neat barn! Very interesting and pretty-- you ought to make a set of notecards with all these barn photos! Have a nice holiday!

Hi Judy,
Next time you are taking photos of that barn...turn around...travel a bit down SS and stop in for tea and a visit. :-)

Love that little farm too. Do you remember when they had sheep?

Have fun this week. :-) I will be excited to hear all about your adventures.

We love your barn photos

We used to have a neighbor who always a said that a rose in the middle of a football field would be a weed. Dandelions to me are a sign of spring; yes, they spread easily, but are so cheery with their yellow heads. Hope you're having a great time with the GK, and getting plenty of rest......

Eva Ason said...

Eva

LOVE the stonework! Fantastic barn find & yes, the dandelions are very beautiful, of course, some weeds are prettier than some flowers.
