Weathered Barns

IMG_1848 (800x600)

They sit like statues in a field decorated with nature’s decorative vines.  A reminder of a lifestyle long past. Left  to its own demise as it slowly rots down to the ground.  Boring aluminum barns have replaced these old wooden barns that have so much character.

This is one of my favorite barns I pass often on a country drive.  It’s 3 stories tall with a cupola all the way up there on top.  I can just imagine kids playing inside on a rainy day, animals snuggled in against a harsh winter, and perhaps a romantic kiss or even a marriage proposal up in the cupola.  I’d love to sit and listen to the stories these walls could tell.
