Memorial Day Barn Charm

Yesterday, Motor Man and I took a little day trip. I’ll be sharing more about that in the days to come. But, of course, we were on the look-out for barns along the way.

We spotted this one from the main highway, so Motor Man turned around and drove down the side road, hoping we could get a good picture. (Believe it or not, I didn’t notice the flag until I uploaded the pictures to the computer. Appropriate for Memorial Day!)

This was such a pretty setting; definitely worth the u-turn.

Two men were working in the field in the foreground.

I waved as we drove off; they had no idea they were smack dab in the middle of a Barn Charm post.

  1. Those guys were too busy doing what they “had” to do on a holiday to notice a pretty lady snapping photos of them and their barn while they worked! Nice property though – neat, orderly and a lovely GREEN!

  5. Looks like they have their first hay crop off. Love to see a working farm

  6. They are mowing hay around here too! Funny.. 🙂 Wonder if they ever had their pictures taken before pickin’ up bales? Nice you waved Dianna.. 🙂

  7. Another beautiful and tranquil scene! I think that’s why I love scenes from “the country” so much…soothing and reassuring to the spirit, somehow! Perfect! ~ Sheila

  8. I can almost smell the cut hay all the way out here :-)!

    The first photo looks like it should be a postcard! Lovely barn and landscape. You had a lovely day for it yesterday..

  15. What you couldn’t capture in the picture was the smell. I know how great that fresh hay smells. We smelled a lot of it in WV this weekend. What beautiful rolls of hay! Wait…your picture was about the barn…sorry.

  16. Love that, ‘smack dab in the middle of a Barn Charm post!’ heheheee
    They’re on Barn Charm Candid Camera!!! LoL!
    Looks like a very beautiful view they have on that farm =)

  17. Hi Dianna, I had to ask my mom about the yellow blooms, cuz that’s her flowers garden. She said it’s just a green moss, not a flowering moss. She said it gets real lush green when it rains a lot in the spring, but it’s yellow now, because we haven’t had quite as much rain this year. She said she doesn’t know the actual name of it, though, & I have no idea how to look it up… maybe do a search for mosses or green/yellow mosses, that might work. Thanks for commenting =)
