Stouffville Farm

Near Stouffville

Although much of the region  south of where I live is quite built up, a few farms remind passersby of what most of the area looked like not THAT long ago!

I am linking to Friday Fences here.

A beautiful old farm that looks like it may be in it's last days too.

see you there! said...

The dusting of snow enhances the view. It looks like the place may need a little care though.

I wonder how farm animals manage in your sub-zero weather you are having.

Lowell said...

Looks familiar. Have you shown us this farm before - maybe at a different season of the year.

It also looks very cold.

But I like. I had lots of fun times on farms like this one.

Lovely old barn buildings, EG!

Halcyon said...

That looks like quite a large farm! It's very pretty with the snow.

Rose said...

I bet this was one big, beautiful farm in former days...and maybe now, too. Such a lot of buildings it makes me wonder what all they had.

And still do today thanks to this beauty!

Terri Buster said...

What a beautiful scene- love that old grey washed out barn board.

Beautiful reminder, despite all our recent snow it's lovely to see it when it's so pretty!

Betty Manousos said...

truly awesome!

William Kendall said...

It's a beautiful shot, and the barn buildings look quite appealing in the snow.

genie said...

What a huge barn complex...bigger than any around here. Love the beautiful blue sky over the snowy ground and roof. Lovely.

The Furry Gnome said...

What an interesting group of barns!

Bob Crowe said...

That's a heck of a barn compared to what I know from the part of Kansas where my wife grew up. The snow and pure color of the sky are a good compliment to each other.

Love the barn and the old wood.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I like the beautiful gray patina on the logs. Also, it looks like the big barn has a nice roof on it.

Great shot.

Andrea said...

It is so wonderful especially for someone who hasn't experienced winter yet. If you feel so cold, why not come over here first to the tropics, just like the migrating birds to divert the cold. When i see those thick snow, i somehow is grateful i was not born in a winter country.

Saun said...

Wow ! that is gorgeous what a nice fine.

Randy said...

What a beautiful shot!

Linda W. said...

Love the weathered gray buildings. Nice shot!

George said...

I really like the weathered look of these buildings.

lots of news here about how cold it is in Canada.

Stuart said...

This is crying out to be painted (not the barn... the scene) !

s.c said...

Like the rural scene. Beautiful and stronger by the snow. Well done.

Kate said...

A VERY picturesque photo!

I love this scene...very rustic

Small City Scenes said...

Beautiful shot. Like a postcard. It is sad to see the land gobbled up by developers. MB

Lisa Gordon said...

What a wonderful old place, and I just love the setting.

Sue said...

This looks like a wonderful painting I would love to hang on my wall.

=)

kelley jensen said...

I'm glad to have some of those reminders still around.

Carver said...

The farm is beautiful surrounded by snow.

That farm is huge!
