I like how this little white shed blends in with the white surroundings.

This barn is one I pass frequently. Although it's just a simple, straightforward barn, I think the weathered color fits in nicely in this snowy background.

Isn't this a cool tree? I think it's a type of a pine, but it's really old and is showing it's age!

This isn't a very big barn, but it's home to this horse. He was standing in the doorway for some time, then decided to brave the cold and wander outside. I thought the barn was cute, but I also loved seeing the horse, covered up with his blanket.

We had a huge snowstorm last week that transformed our outdoors!
13 inches of snow in two days made for beauty all around us.
This was taken just down the road from my house.

We were out driving yesterday afternoon, admiring the beautiful snow covered scenery, when I spotted this old barn, sitting all by itself in the field. I like the simple design, and the old wood against the white snow.

It was a beautiful day today; unseasonably warm temps for Michigan, clear skies and sunshine!
I watched my little granddaughter for a few hours this afternoon and we took the opportunity to go for a walk. Along the way I saw this bird nest. It's occupants are long gone, but it's still secure in the branches of this tree.

This barn used to belong to a friend of mine, who built a new house and moved down the street. They had horses and stored the camper in it. After it was sold, a group from the college in our town asked to rent it to store instrument from the worship team, and also to have weekly practices. They also offered to paint it.
So it was painted - a pretty bright red, don't you think? And there are no animals - just college kids singing and playing!

We had some cute visitors at the Nursing Home today. Three puppies came to visit. They were Sharpei/Puggle mixes. and they got a lot of love and attention!

This barn belongs to one of my nursing home residents. I showed her this picture and she wondered why I would take a picture of "that old barn". I told her it's a great old barn with character!
She said it's just used for storage now, but it used to hold the hay and for some years they had horses in it.
It's nice to know a little bit about one of the barns I photograph!
