November 17



It's cold out today, but I'm thankful the sun is shining.  I drive by this old barn frequently, and stopped to take a picture.  It could use some TLC, but I think it has character!

Did you ever notice barns are usually painted red? I wonder why.

This is a beauty!

Looks really beautiful, even though old. Reminds me of the Amish.

Very nice barn! After several days of rain, I'm ready for some of that blue sky.

It has been a great barn in its day!

I found this when I Googled....

The practice of putting iron scraps into a large barrel of buttermilk for a couple of weeks also would be used to make a primitive rusty RED paint. That the paint was easy and inexpensive to make could explain why man barns were the color RED.

I love, love, love old barns! This one really does have a lot of character and personality.

I really should do a barn drive and get a bunch of photos of Kansas barns and make a calendar on Zazzle.... hmmmm....
