See this barn

If you will look in the background of the previous post, you will see this barn. It is there right beyond the little fenced in grave. AND, it is just on the other side of the road from the barns in the post before that one.

Under a spreading tree

This was taken the same day as the barns fact, just before we got to them. I like how massive this tree feels...I don't know what the grave is for. I always assume a beloved pet.

I am at least going to do this entry for Barn Charm....not sure how much regular blogging I am going to be doing. I don't remember where the above barn was at.
But the bottom two I do know...I have taken both on numerous occasions. The one above is on 59, just north of Mansfield. Every picture I have taken of it is a drive by, with this probably being the most successful one of all that I have taken.
And the barn above is on Coffing Brothers road, north of the Coffing Brothers Orchard.

If you have time, go check out the other barns linked to Tricia's Barn Charm meme.

If you will notice, she is practicing her 'writing.' And doing a fine job with it, I might add.

Iris that will last all year

While in Nashville, we saw this stone carving...not quite sure what else to call it.  I had to take a quick snapshot of it.  I would not mind having it in my yard to remind me of things to come.

Barn Charm, and more....

Believe it or not, these were taken about 4 hours ago in Parke County in Indiana. It was so dark and dreary today that I had the ISO set at 800 and 1600 all the time...

I hit the auto contrast button on all these shots to brighten them up just a bit...though you may not think they look bright at all.

I just loved all the matching red buildings....
and wondered why this one was left white.

I think this gives new meaning to the word decorated...also looks like a little bit of recycling has been going on with it. The funny thing about it, I like it. This was seen down in Nashville, Indiana on Friday.

On the way home tonight...

These are all straight out of the case you can't tell. Only thing I resized them. I know the first and third were taken with me leaning back and taking a photo through the window behind Roger...and I think the second one two. Oh, that reminds me they are taken while going between 55 and 60 mph. You can tell it in the second photo for sure.

They are shown in the order that they were taken.

I could not just pick one...

so thought I would just show you the whole show...

it was just too beautiful for words....

Friday's fences

I don't think I have posted this shot, though it was taken back in September on the way to a family picnic. It is a drive-by shot, but I still like it just fine. I am linking to Jan's Friday's Fences....and boy, oh, boy, do I like her entry for today.

I will try to get by to visit everyone later tonight.

Mansifield Mill

I like the sky in this shot more than anything, but it doesn't do it justice. However, it lives in my mind all over again when I see this photo.

Mansfield roller mill dam...

The last time we were up to Mansfield, the water was the lowest we had ever seen it. With having had some rain, and figuring they will be lowering the dam on up the way, we decided to check it out Sunday. As you can see there is plenty of water coming over the dam and it has been so high it has started washing dead trees over.

Leftovers for Barn Charm this week

Since I only got to capture one view of these subjects, I thought I would post them together. I think the were all three south of Terre Haute, but not sure just where. I am almost positive the first one is in Illinois, and the second one may be too. It was somewhere close to the state line, so can not be sure one way or the other.
It is one of the most well maintained barns I have seen. Everything is just so about the whole set up. It made me wonder what it is used for.
And as you can see with the last one, it is from within the car...I think though that Roger did pause. Both the first and last barns have seen better days....

I am linking this to Tricia's Barn Charm meme.

Little porch in Illinois

The painted wrought iron porch posts really caught my eye. This was in the summer, not spring as the rabbit might suggest.

An open door...

I don't recall just where this was taken, but it was taken this fall on one of our rambling drives.

Friday, November 11, 2011


When I first planted my wisteria, the shoots on it were not a whole lot bigger around than a pencil. I braided them together and started training it up the trellis. Look how big it has gotten.

From the Land of Lincoln.....

We passed through a little town/village in Illinois...this is a photograph taken through the windshield.

I know this doesn't really show the fence as good as I would like, but it is my entry for Friday's fences at Life According to Jan and Jer....

At the edge of town....

Just a little barn at the edge of a little town....I had wanted to get closer but there was just no way.

Another fall shot...

Normally our dogwood has fall colors of gold to orange, to red and deep red. This year, it is almost all this deep, deep red. Rather than being boring to look at like it sounds, it is absolutely gorgeous.

Double the pleasure Barn Charm....

This is a two for Tuesday sort of post....two barns, two shots of each barn.
I think both were taken on the same day southeast of Terre Haute, but I couldn't swear to it.
I love looking down lanes to see what I can see...
and then I like seeing the entire barn.

This is my entry to Tricia's Barn Charm meme...

Look me in the eye....

This one was wanting another handout...I had fed him along with the others and had fed all I had with me.

In days ahead...

While the Northeast has been initiated into winter already, I think it will be a while before we see scenes such as this. At least I am hoping it will be a while.

Wisteria gold

Not only is wisteria beautiful in the spring when full of bloom, but it turns a beautiful golden color in the fall.

Fall Friday's fence

This is another repeat post...I know I posted it at some time or other on my other blog. Sometimes I just like to post them here because I post a bigger image...and since this has a fence in it, I am linking it to Life According to Jan and Jer's Friday's Fences meme. So come on over and join the fun.

Down a dirt road

Any time I see a road like this, I want to travel down it. They always hold untold treasures for me.
