April 16

This is a sad barn! I think at one time it was very charming, but wrapping a place with plastic kind of deletes the charm factor.
However - I'm still linking with Barn Charm. Stop over at Tricia's place to see some real charming barns!

Awww...that is a sad-looking place.

Ruta said...

It does look sad and those bare trees add to it...but that grren spring grass adds a little cheer to it!

Judy @ daily yarns said...

It sure is a sad one but I like it anyway.

Kathy said...

I don't think the plastic will offer much protection, but it looks like they were grasping at anything! Sad, yes, but it's still a neat picture.

TexWisGirl said...

hope that means they're repairing it. :)

Amy Burzese said...

Yes, that looks sad. Hopefully, they will work on it!

Wow Mari,seems like the tree will take over the barn ^_^

Red Barn

Rose said...

I always hate seeing the trees growing up at and through the foundations of barns...

Carol said...

Great shot. Oh, I bet this one was a beauty in its day.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Looks like they are desperately trying to hold it together.

Carletta said...

You can almost tell that at one point it was a fine looking barn.
I'm shaking my head at the plastic. I'm wondering why it just wasn't boarded up.
The green mold shows the plastic has been there for awhile. :(

Wow, I wonder how old that barn is? So much character despite the plastic. Nice find, Mari!

Linda said...

Makes you wonder why they bothered with the plastic! So sad to see these barns going...

Beth said...

Tanya said...

maybe they are preparing to fix her up!

EG CameraGirl said...

I agree that it looks sad. It was a neat barn in its time!

Debbie said...

oh, um not sure what to make of this. perhaps it is like one big bandaide!!

it's still a pretty barn and at least someone is trying to protect it!!

Lesley said...

This looks almost funny! And pointless.

Elaine said...

Oh, dear. The black plastic really does delete the charm factor, but you can still see what a beautiful and proud old barn it was.

Poor thing! The plastic looks like a big Band-Aid. It’s sad, but it’s still a charming barn in my book.

S. Etole said...

So many stories in this.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Why would they do such a thing? What purpose would that serve? Strange & yes, sad... too bad

Thanks for joining =)

Joanna Jenkins said...

Makes you wonder what the original thinking was for wrapping it... As if it would protect it for the elements?!?!

Beth said...

I wonder if they have some things stored in there that they don't want rain to get to or for folks to see is in there. I can't imagine why else they'd use the plastic coverings.
The barn must hate that! (Personification is one of my favorite literary elements---love Disney films where the animals and objects come to life, so of course the barn can have feelings.)

Linnea said...

At least they didn't use blue duct tape to secure the plastic wrap! Are they trying to keep people out or protect what's inside, hmmmm....Thanks for stopping by!

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Oh my goodness- that almost looks like it was more trouble to wrap than to just leave along. Must be trying to protect some hay from the elements.

Charming, nonetheless, just with added character. At least they are trying to maintain or protect it. :)
