Shed and Garden/Friday Fences

Entrance into fenced-in area

This shed has attitude, still hanging in there - though I haven't a clue as to how long it will stand.  Here you can see the gateway into a small grassy area and...

Garden inside fenced-in area

a small garden.

I am linking to Friday Fences here.

This area mustn't get the super strong winter winds we get on my Mornington Peninsula. Just the other day I watched one my solid verandah chairs go scooting past my dining room window! It was like some invisible someone on roller blades was pushing it along. A wonderful old building highlighted by the unpretentious fence!

I wonder if there is a single right angle in that building!?

That's strange to see a one row garden out behind that tumble-down barn. So well kept, too.

Andy said...

This photo made me think of my aching back. I hope you keep track of this shed and get a photo of it when it does collapse.

I'm so glad they have not torn it down. It's a treasure. :)

Buttons said...

Oh I LOVE this it is beautiful. LOVE it. B

Wow, I love that old shed! And the fence and garden just add to it. It's all so neat and tidy too. Great photos.

see you there! said...

The textures of the wood in that old shed are beautiful. Wonder who keeps the little garden.

This is a fantastic place! Charm, charm and more charm!

Sandra said...

the barn is beautiful, even the sunken roof, i love the lines of the building. they sure keep the grass cut and the garden neat as a pin.

Kathy said...

This is my kind of photo. I love it! Did you use some kind of filter to bring out the grainess of the wood?

This small house seems to be getting asleep, and falling slowly into its own dreams..

so cool!

Neat! I love finding old buildings like that.

Old, not strong but lovely.

RedPat said...

It looks wonderful. They must really love it too!

Judy said...

That was a nice find. Some days I feel just like that.

Indrani said...

A great feel in these shots.

Karen said...

How picturesque!

Craver Vii said...

I like the look of that barn. The fence is surely a guard to keep people out of the precarious structure who's collapse appears inevitable. Regardless, it's a feast for the eyes!

One decent puff and that baby's out of here I reckon EG :))You never know this may even be the last picture taken!

That shed has seen better days,but still has a certain beauty about it.

Lisa Gordon said...

Now this is my kind of building!!!

It's beautiful despite its sorry state.

It looks like a giant came along and sat in the middle. Interesting building.

Stephanie said...

Love the look of this building!

Rose said...

Oh, this is great! I so would love to know the story...know the history.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I love these old, old buildings. But, I probably wouldn't want to go inside this one! Neat garden spot they have there.

NatureFootstep said...

it will probably not be up for long anymore. Glad you captured it.

Lowell said...

Those poor animals are likely to be in for a crashing surprise one of these days! :) Your pics capture well the deterioration of this place!

DeniseinVA said...

Wonderful photos! I see these old barns and always think of their history. Still beautiful.

Carver said...

I love to see old sheds like that hanging in there with so much character.

Kay said...

Barns all seem to get that sad, swaybacked look as they start to go down. This one is especially interesting since it's surrounded by well groomed land. Nice shots!

Small City Scenes said...

Oh my goodness!! Interesting yet tragic in a way. What a story it must have.

The one room schoolhouse that is over 100 years old on the ranch where my daughter lives is in that precarious position. The powers that be say just let it go. MB

Randy said...

I hope someone recycles the wood.

Michelle said...

Be still my heart. I love a building on the verge of falling down.

edenhills said...

Hard to understand that nice neat garden and that falling down building. Nice captures.

Cezar and Léia said...

I think it's beautiful!Great pictures, the green grass is also adorable!
