Wisconsin Barns and Waiting for Spring


I took these photos of our barn and snow a few days ago. Nothing's changed, except we have a bit more snow now. I also love how the sunrise 'lights up' the end of our barn, so of course I have to share that with my blogging friends.


This is what I saw in the opposite direction.

 Looking across the yard and road toward Neighbor Bill's

 Looking southeast, from the south end of the porch

The dramatic light of the sunrise has passed.

Waiting for Spring

I took this photo on someone else's farm, but it so represents how I feel at the end of a long January and going into February. Bear in mind that we won't see our daffodils until the end of April, at the earliest.

Daffodils are such a cheering flower, aren't they!

Great photos, love your sunrise. I agree about the daffodils. I am looking forward to seeing them.

Pamela Gordon said...

Beautiful sunrise photos! They have been spectacular here this winter too. I really like the daffodil photo. I remember driving through a town in New England a long time ago and there was a whole gully blooming with daffodils among the trees and rocks. It was stunning. Enjoy your day.

EG CameraGirl said...

The daffodils look wonderfully cheerful. I won't be seeing any here till late April or May, either. Thank goodness for photos! :) Love that rosy light on your barn. Beautiful.

Lea said...

Beautiful winter scenes! I, too, am awaiting the Daffodil blooms.

Lady Jane said...

Love the pic with the sun on the barn and that sunrise is absolutely beautiful. I will be replacing my tulips in my vase with daffodils this week. I love their sunny bloom. Hugs, LJ

Sandra said...

mothere called hers jonquils and she had masses of them. i love yellow flowers, they say joy to me, like sunshine. i just came in from the back yard to show bob what the sunrise was painting behind me. i stand every morning and watch it glow red or gold or yellow. today it was golden and i turned to look west to see what it would paint. i got a great shot of the sun painting the dead leaf behind me. just like your barn... so beautiful

Shug said...

The Jonquils are so very pretty.....I enjoy the brightness of the yellow!!! Great photos on this post....
Enjoy your day...

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Yes indeed!! I agree....daffodils are one of my favorites, especially when they're mixed in a flower bed with iris. The Spring colors are highly anticipated.

Love the sky photos....absolutely stunning.

On my first trip to Wisconsin I will never forget the beautiful barns.

Lynne said...

Interesting . . .
All your photos showed up on my iPad, but missing the final two on the lap top.
I grabbed my lap top to catch the daffodils!

Beautiful photos! xoxo Su

Lynne said...

Oops, I grabbed the iPad for the daffodils . . .

CraveCute said...

Lovely photos! Over here in MN we've had a lackluster winter, except for our big snowfall from the other day! Before that we had warmer temps and it actually felt a bit like spring!

Tired Teacher said...

As harsh as Winter can sometimes be, it is a beautiful season. Your photos definitely captured some of that beauty.

Beautiful photos. I am hoping that our daffodils will be blooming next month. xo Laura

Anita Johnson said...

We have lived in the country for about 6 months. I know I will never tire of the light. Always changing, Always beautiful. Your photos remind me of here. We too are months away from flowers. I totally forgot about forcing some and might do that for the excitement anD color! Love stopping by here!

It's a long time to wait for daffodils! Ours are bursting forth at last and making the garden shine.
What beautiful photos of your neighbourhood.

My daffodils starting coming up around Christmas, but they're sleeping now. Your photos are outstanding, Judy! I love the difference the light makes on your barn! Your corner of the world is lovely. xo ♥

Beautiful photography and love the cows and fence 'waiting for Spring' ~

Happy Weekend to you, ^_^

ladyfi said...

So very beautiful!

Nicol Carm said...

Lovely pictures!

Lynn said...

Wow. What beauty you have around you. I love the picture of your barn, the way the light has illuminated it! Inspiring!

Karen S. said...

Good morning, pretty views, which remind me of my own place! We have been lucky so far, not such a bad winter this year, yet. If we can believe the groundhog he claims spring will be early. But he's been wrong so many times! I've been going back looking at my flower and summer photos lately too!

Barbara said...

Your barn photos are always a delight to me. I don't know if I've ever told you that I have family living in the NW corner of Illinois farm country, still a "fer piece" from where you are. But as we drive there to visit them, I love the rolling countryside and the barns. Your pictures always remind me of that part of Illinois.

Ida said...

Such pretty colors in your sunrise shots. - Enjoy the shot of the cows by the fence too. - Yes daffodils are very cheery. Some of mine are up already but they won't bloom for a couple more months.

Terri D said...

Yes, the daffodils scream spring!! What a beautiful sky to photograph, in any direction you looked. The barn does look so pretty in the sunlight! Thanks for sharing God's pallette!

Amy at love made my home said...

What a beautiful sunrise!! Wonderful daffs too!! xx

Carla from The River said...

Love that view!!
Yes, Daffodils are my favorite flowers. :-))

Rose said...

Oh, Judy, I do love the way that light is hitting the end of your barn...but then I love them all.

Missy George said...

Lovely photos Judy !!The daffodils are a pleasant change from the snow..beautiful sunrise..

carol l mckenna said...

Wow! Gorgeous sky shots ~ beautiful colors! ~ Daffodils are much needed as snow storm is predicted for MA tomorrow ~

Happy Weekend to you ~ ^_^

Felicia said...

I love seeing the pinks and lavenders of a sunrise or a sunset.

Lady Linda said...

Hello! What wonderful photos of the sky! I just want to look and look at them. God is amazing. I love that He shares this beauty with us everyday.
Spring comes earlier to my part of the world. Crocus plants have pushed up already.
Hugs...

camp and cottage living said...

I'm definitely looking forward to daffodil days, for sure.
I sure like the sun glow on the metal? barn and the silhouette of the cows, Judy.

A wonderful sunrise you have in the winter morning. I like the daffodils which we have for real at the moment, a bit too early for my liking

The 4th one is my favorite.

Daniela said...

Dearest Judy,
I'm still feeling amazed by the colors and the shades of your Winter sky, what a gorgeousness !
Thank you for sharing them with us, sweetest friend,
with all my heart

You have a beautiful view, no matter what direction you look. Perky yellow flowers are a delight.

eileeninmd said...

Hello, Great post and I love the cattle scene. Stopping back to say thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

Marie C said...

Beautiful images! Such a lovely place!

Tom said...

Thanks for sharing your "glowing barn" this week. Please return real soon.

Martha said...

I call that "the golden moment".
Spring is just around the corner now.
:0)

genie said...

Oh, Judy...It looks so cold up there...all of that snow. Ours is melted but we are getting 7 degree temps this weekend. That is really hard on us. We are just not prepared mentally for temps like that. The cows do not appear to be letting it all bother them...but then cows are happy as long as they have something to eat. The sunrise is drop dead gorgeous. g
