Barn Charm – Mom Would Be Smiling

Saturday, as I passed my childhood home, I glanced (as I usually do) at the dairy barn that sits across the highway.

I immediately made a u-turn, found a safe place to pull over, and grabbed my camera from its usual spot under my seat. Since the last time I’d been by there the barn, the owners had added something new.

In my Mom’s later years, she would occasionally see a pick-up truck pass by with an American flag flying in the back – “straight out” in the wind. This pleased her to no end.  She would have loved to look out her front windows at this huge flag on the old silo.

(Not to be the “flag police”, but I just wish the owners had hung it with the Union [blue] to the left.)

Linking up to Barn Charm.

  1. What an enormous flag!
    One year I was completely stumped as to what to get my FIL for his birthday. Then it hit me…an American flag for out by the driveway and inside fence. He loved it and we had to replace it several times over the years since he hung it out every day.

  2. Very cool! It certainly does stand out. That really is a beautiful charming barn charm scene!

  3. I’m glad they’re taking care of the dairy barn and that flag is a great addition. You’e right, Mama would be pleased!

  4. Love it, love it, love it!

    What a great addition to the silo and barn. Beautiful! I am sure your Mother would have enjoyed it.

  14. I thought the blue was supposed to be on the left when hung in this manner. Thanks for clarifying that. I’m glad they are proud to display their colors, only wish your mom could see it.

  15. A great view and my Mom would have loved passing by too!
