Barn Week - day 1

This week I'm going to take you on a photo journey of our barn.

It was built around 1930, but possibly even before. That's the earliest record found of it.








Want to take a peek inside?









This place was once a working hog farm.
But the barn has suffered many years of neglect and non-repair.
It's been weathered and rotted.
Beautiful? Yes.
But also dangerous. Bits and pieces fall off with each gust of Kansas wind.


Come back tomorrow, please!

I LOVE red barns - so much so that I painted my greenhouse/potting shed barn red with white trim! Will you ever be able to restore your beautiful barn?

In looking at your photos, I could actually SMELL your barn. I grew up on a farm with a very similar barn.

What a beautiful old barn. I think about the animals that once lived there...
