July 4


Happy Fourth of July! Those of us in the USA are celebrating the birthday of our country today. This is another barn we saw while in Pennsylvania and I thought it was a good one to share today. These old barns make me think of our hard working ancestors.

This barn reminds me of an episode of EXTREME HOMES. A couple took an old barn and made it into the coolest house. As usual, curious me wants to go inside and check it out...shall we sneak inside?

When I think about everything my grandmothers did to keep their homes and families going ~ I'm exhausted!

Another fascinating barn. Your last two posts, barns and railroads, are certainly the heart of Americana!

I never thought that this is a barn! It looks very different to the barns here and this one also looks very unsued.
But however ... it's a nice shot ... white "house", blue sky, some green grass ...

Great photo! It's a glimpse into the past and speaks of strength and sturdiness and standing strong!

This looks like another great old barn that would have a story to tell if it could talk. Hope you had a good day!

I love the barns that you capture.
and that tree above looks so sleepy and beautiful.
Hope you had a happy 4th of July celebrations.

great AMERICA picture in my opinion. when I saw the tractors and farmers in our parade, i got a lump in my throat and thought about how America should be more appreciative of our farmers, it seems to be a dying occupation. Great photo as always, i have seen more barns since i began following you...i love it!!!

It's truly amazing to think that structures like this, still standing today, were actually built by ordinary people with little or no machinery.
