Old Log Barn

Hay bales north of Kirkfield

I was looking for scenic fields covered in hay bales when I happened to spy...


 Log barn - the second floor on this end is likely an addition

this ramshackle barn in between two fields of hay. Abandoned and slowly being reclaimed by nature.

 Loft on this end likely original

 As seen from the old driveway

The driveway has not been abandoned but is being used by haying vehicles so I was able to get quite close before hving to  make my way through tall grass to get as close as I wanted to.

Too much grass

Actually, the grass was too thick and too tall for me to get the photos I wanted to get. I guess I'll have to go back!


In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I  am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

Different shades of green adds color to the landscape and dilapidated buildings. Very nice collection.

this is just to wonderful for words. will be waiting for a winter shot.. i like the grass but would like to see the bottom. i am thinking that if someone cared enough they could bring it back to what it was.

That old log barn is a new one for me. Love it! And the field of baled hay is particularly pretty.

There is a lot of history in that old barn, EG!

George said...

This is a neat old barn, but it's a shame it has been so neglected. I think you got some great pictures though, in spite of all the grass.

Sharon Wagner said...

It's getting closer and closer to nature. The ground that is. Nice rubbish pick.

Oh, what a great find indeed, EG!! Makes you wish it could talk and reveal its history!! Wonderful captures as always!! Enjoy your new week!!

Ginny said...

How unusual! I don't think I have ever seen a barn made from logs! But maybe I need to pay more attention to what they are made of. This is a real shame, because it must be a rare find, and now no one is keeping it up.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great post. I always wonder about the people who used to work the old farms.

Around here that grass would be full of chiggers!

Rose said...

I forgot to tell you I loved your hay bail shot...

orchid Miyako said...

Oh I've never seen these hay bail p;) And reminds me of my favorite drama of 'Little house in the prairie'. I watched rerun with bilingual TV in my early 30's. As I knew the story, it was really nice hearing lessen. Thank you very much for the word 'ramshackle' (*^_^*)

Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
