Wisconsin Barns and Good Fences


I always post my own photos of Wisconsin barns, but when my daughter sent me this one, how could I resist! It has all the right features: Red barn, cute stone silo, weathered fence, green springtime Wisconsin grass.

I'm now calling her 'my Wausau correspondent.'

 'and then he said...'

This little 14 month old girl loves books and hats. Most of the photos we get lately show her wearing a hat - and she puts it on herself! I think she needs a little pink handbag.

What a stunning barn, your daughter did an amazing job of capturing it! I have to admire your grand daughter's taste; I, too, love hats and books.

Your daughter and children are beautiful. I love the shot of the little one with the hat, she does need a purse. The red barn shot is awesome, I love the silo. Great post and images, enjoy your Thursday!

Adorable children, Judy. I see the resemblance with your daughter.Our Gwynn loves books and just yesterday we spent a great deal of time reading many of her favorites. Hats and books - a winning combination. :)What a beautiful old barn and silo. Deb

Precious, precious children. Such lovely photos.

And your barn/fence image is Springtime....the epitome of wonderful country.

Love the barn photo. A previous barn post got me to thinking of all the barns that are no more around me. So I have been snapping a few that remain for a future blog.
Beautiful family.

Sandra said...

An amazing barn and I love the stone silo. Your daughter and grands are all three precious and adorable. The pink lady does indeed need a pink handbag and perhaps some pink heels to match! How cute is she?!!

Lynne said...

I love Wisconsin views . . . send thanks to your Wausau correspondent!
And your granddaughter, book in hand, pink hat . . . ADORABLE!

Linda Kay said...

Judy, love the old barn and the fence, so thanks to daughter for sending it to you for us to see!

Tired Teacher said...

Fabulous barn photo! I'd say she inherited your photographic skills.

The photo of your granddaughter in the pink hat is priceless. Yes, find that girl a cute handbag.

Debbie said...

We vacation each year in Chetek, WI fishing. One of the best parts of the drive there is seeing some of the beautiful farms and particularly the barns. WI is a beautiful state.
You have a beautiful daughter, and sweet grands. I believe a handbag would be a nice addition to the hat. What a sweet toddler!

Debbie said...

Too bad I don't get points for using the word 'beautiful'. :D

Nancy's Notes said...

Oh my, I love, love barns! I have them on a pinterest board too! Your daughter sure sent you a beauty! What precious pictures of your daughter and her children, just adorable. That sweet little reader and her hat, just way too cute!

Primitive Stars said...

Joanne Noragon said...

I love kids who love hats. No one rocks a had like a youngster.
The stone silo is amazing, too. I can't remember seeing many.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

That is a great barn photo from your daughter, good of her to send it for you to share.
Sweet photos of your daughter and children, I foresee Grandma looking for interesting hats for the little book reader. :-)

Cheryl said...

Your "correspondent" did a great job...and she has a beautiful family!!
I love that the little girl loves hats! I had a little hat-girl myself. It apparently skipped a generation because my mother loves wearing hats, but I do not.

Lea said...

Nice barn and fence scene. Good looking family, too!

podso said...

Cute, cute babies! I love a good red barn, aged is good and the stone silo makes it even better. Great picture from your correspondent!

Fabulous shot of that barn, fence. Your grandkids are cute as a button. Love the rustic fencing!

Fantastic barn and the wood fence shot is a winner too!
Your grand children are so adorable!

She definitely needs a little pink handbag so she can play HM the Q!

carolann said...

I loved you post and the added of your daughter and Grandchildren.

Reading books and the hats. She sure knows her preferences at that age.

May end up a school teacher.

Terra said...

Tell your Wausau correspondent she did great, the barn photo has everything. The child wearing a hat and reading is precious. Perhaps she needs pink gloves too.

ladyfi said...
