Barn Charm 50

This weekend I went to southern NH. I drove through Hudson and Litchfield to get some barn shots. When I was young farms lined the Merrimack River. Now there are more housing developments and very few farms. It really made me sad...I guess it's what they call progress...

Sometimes, I hate progress.
Nice move from the weathervanes to the real roosters and chickens.

Wonderful barn! I love the weather vanes.

I agree that it's sad to see so many farms disappearing. It's happening here too/ Soon we will be at the total mercy of big conglomerates for our food and that just cannot be a good thing.

Anyhow, I'm glad you found some charming barns. And I LOVE the wind vanes.

i just adore old barns. in new jersey many are now being saved and restored just enough to make them safe. we have tons of old abbandon ones but just as many working farms/barns.

great shots.....i enjoyed the critter bonus!!!

That barn is beautiful! I love that 1st shot w/ all the yellow flowers & that old weathered wood is so beautiful shot together like that... great cupola, too.

Is that a Bambi scene on the back side of the shed in the 3rd shot? How cuuute! =) And look at all the farm animals... LOVE the ducks, so white!

Great entries for this week's Barn Charm =)

A couple of beautiful barns and I like the closeups of the weather vanes. Fun to see the birds in the barnyard and I especially like the shot of the roosting peacock.

HI Ruta! I think you were at McQuestens! I love the old barns down here, what's left of them...trying to save our own on the house we're buying from being torn down as we speak. Thanks for the stop over on my blog! ~Vonnie

Yes, it was McQuestin's...I was shocked to see the Rodonis Farm for sale!! That was one of the big ones when I was growing up!

Progress indeed. Family farms being eaten up by housing developments we don't even need. Though in my state we've got stiff land use laws in effect that protect farm land, there are still the odd parcels annexed and turned into housing for those seeking 'that country feel'.

Great barn. I love that first shot especially.
