Vanishing structures


One of the things I enjoyed doing when I was visiting  my daughters home in Tn. was to take long rides into the country side .   Such a pleasant day and the beautiful fields planted with tobacco and corn.   About 25 minutes to Kentucky, so much  green grass and little blue flowers. 
  In the landscape, stately standing were beautiful old barns.  Much labor and love it must have taken  to construct one.  Today they are far and few between, vanishing from the countryside.  
My daughter and son in law love to fix up old houses.  I would love to see them fix up an old barn.

  1. There is something about the Tennessee/Kentucky area that draws me. I think there is a sense of age and timelessness there that I don't quite pick up in other places. I'm looking forward to my visit out that way next year.

  4. Hi Betsy, I'm glad you like my post about my patio..I just love my new curtains...they're so pretty when they blow in the breeze. :)
    I love this post on old ky/tn barns. I LOVE KY...lived here my entire life and plan on never leaving! unless God has a different plan than I do..I always want to be doing His will and not mine :0) I do enjoy the old barns that are still standing...I always hate it when one finally succumbs to the elements and falls down...or worse, torn down. I live right smack in the middle of horse country and I get to see some unbelievable sights when it comes to barns, stables and horses. It's all so lovely!
    I really enjoyed your post..hope you'll visit me again!
    Hugs
    Missy
