Wisconsin Barns and Good Fences


This photo is straight from my cellphone. I loved the bright blue sky that set off that white barn, which belongs to our neighbors. You might be able to tell from the flag that Saturday was a horribly windy(and cold, about minus 10 F.) morning.

Barn and milkhouse
A barn like this would probably have been built with 20-24 stanchions for milking cows and maybe a couple pens, one for small calves and one for larger heifers.

This photo was taken on the same property, but I'm not sure what this little shed is about. Almost looks like an old corncrib. See the beautiful fence and hill rising up in the background? I love the rolling hills of our neighborhood.



Cupolas, common to this type of barn.

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day weekend.

Buttons Thoughts said...

Your tulip lover is so adorable:) That is such a lovely barn and property. Could that little building near the rad be an old milk house so they could pick up the cans of milk? Hug B

Cranberry Morning said...

Buttons, it doesn't show up well in the photo, but the building is open slats like a corn crib. The small part attached to the barn is the milk house. The milk cans would have been in an enclosed space, not in something as airy as the little shed. It's cute, isn't it!

Such a stately barn and the little tulip lover must be the apple of your eye. Tom The Backroads Traveller

Cutest little tulip lover! And what a pretty view to have that barn as a neighbor. Brr it's cold where you are, and the wind makes it all the worse. Can't imagine what your wind CHILL was. I too appreciate the rolling hills compared to FLAT Illinois where I grew up.

Jess said...

Amazing photos taken on your mobile phone! I cannot even begin to imagine what 10 degrees minus feels like! The scenery where you live is stunning. Thanks for sharing.

Judy,
Wisconsin barns and fences are so delightful. This white one is very charming. I do wish I could visit there someday. I see that you are selling your pretty soaps.

Have a nice week.

Beautiful barn! Almost regal. Your little tulip lover is very careful (did someone say not to touch 'em?)

Judy S. said...

Nice photos, Judy; it sure does look cold though. Hope you had a great weekend! Which one of your little cuties is the tulip sniffer?

Elizabeth said...

Love the barn with cupolas. I begged for one for our barn when we first moved here 22 years ago, but I'm still waiting... lol.
What a tulip-loving doll! A blessing for sure. :)
Have a great evening!

Breathtakingly beautiful!! The contrast between the white and the crisp blue sky! Then, of course, it is all overshadowed by that cute tulip lover! ;) blessings ~ tanna

In light of what I now know, my comment was unkind and insensitive. That child is adorable and to love tulips at such an early age shows great intelligence. Hunker down out there. Winter is not for wimps.

Missy George said...

He's adorable..Beautiful winter scenes..

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I love the cupolas on the top of this barn, Judy! I see you were gifted with lovely flowers for Valentine's Day--very pretty and i see a little one also liked them! :)

Debby Ray said...

Wow...awesome shots from the cell phone! I still have a dumb phone that doesn't take good pics at all...I keep my point-n-shoot in my purse all the time for these kinds of opportunities!

Linda W. said...

Nice barn! I'm loving your winter scenes.

Barb said...

Your landscapes are wonderful - as is your little flower lover!

Ida said...

Brrr....It's a gorgeous barn though. I liked the shadows from the fence and the sunlight shining on the snow. Also that adorable tulip lover.

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

The sky looks so blue above the white snow!

The Furry Gnome said...

Now that's a nice looking barn!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Oh your little tulip lover is too sweet. Love the barn pics in the gorgeous white snow. The flag waving is a wonderful photo. You took some great shots with your phone.
Have a nice day.

Karen S. said...

Beautiful in your world, even though I can catch a chill off those photos! Brr! Baby it's cold outside. I adore you cutie pie, little tulip lover!

Carola Bartz said...

The tulip lover is adorable!
I always enjoy your barns so very muhc. I like rolling hills as well, and with that fence they look even lovelier.

Shug said...

Such a big beautiful Barn and it looks awesome with the fence in front. Great capture of two interesting topics. Wish we had snow around here.

Amy Burzese said...

Cutest little tulip fan I've seen! And I love the rolling hills of your neighborhood too. Extra special in the snow. Thanks for sharing this week.!

Lois said...

Lovely pictures and I just adore the look of that barn! It has been windy here too and a bit colder than normal for north Florida. Nothing like your temps though!

Pauline Woodcock said...

Just love that barn, so much more regal than anything you'd see in this country. And the little tulip lover - too cute!

J_on_tour said...

I'm not usually a fan of patriotic flags in pictures but that one certainly gives it a lift with the colour (sorry color !!) contrast to a different level.
Lovely opener too.

Fun60 said...

Love the contrast of the white against the blue in that first photo.

Michelle F said...

Hi Judy,

I love the picture perfect white snow.
But, I don't like the temps :)
