I just love big old farm houses. . .

This group of farm buildings has certainly seen better days.

DAY 50 - Through the Woods

Literally over the river and through the woods. . .

DAY 49 - What is it?

I'm really not sure what this piece of farm machinery is. . . any ideas??

DAY 48 - Old Tractor

Every old farm needs an old tractor. . .

DAY 47 - Another Old Barn

We took this shot earlier this fall before the leaves turned and fell. The arrangement of the windows on the side wall seems a little strange to me.

DAY 46 - Corn Field with Red Barn

Three days in a row of cold and dreary, rain and now snow. This old barn overlooks a cornfield in need of harvesting. I'm not sure what the story is on the little rounded structure on the left.

DAY 45 - Old Everett Barn

Another gray, cold day. It was spitting snow this morning -- a tad of accumulation is expected tonight.

Gray, wet, dreary day today. . .

DAY 43 - The Hayfields Are Brown Now

The hay fields are browning now -- first snow of the season is expected tomorrow. Summer goes by so fast. . .

DAY 42 - One Big Barn

What do you think? How many times has this barn been added onto?

DAY 41 - Gentle Giants

Amish draft horses in Holmes County

DAY 40 - Look Up

The roofs on these old barns are interesting -- patterned shingles, cupolas, lightening rods -- such character. . .

DAY 39 - Weather Vane

Finally, a new looking barn. It seems like so many of the barns in the area are old and in need of repair and paint. Now, don't get me wrong. . . I really like the character of those vintage barns. But this one with the bright red roof, little cupola, and weather vane was a breath of fresh air.

DAY 38 - Old Tractors

A couple weeks ago we happened by a display of old farm equipment at this 4-story barn outside of Dresden.

DAY 37 - Pumpkins Anyone?

This farm we passed by the week before Halloween still had two big wagonloads of pumpkins and gourds for sale.

DAY 36 - Hay Hay Hay

This farmer's ready for winter with his rows of plastic-wrapped hay bales.

DAY 35 - Perry's Ponderosa

This white barn has a sign on it for "Perry's Ponderosa."

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

DAY 34 - The Roof

You have to look hard, but you can still find some of the patterned roofs on old barns in the area.

DAY 33 - Lightning Rods

I don't think the plethora of lightning rods are really necessary on this poor old barn any more.

Monday, November 3, 2008

DAY 32 - Power Lines

This old barn sits up on the hill just down the road from us. The power lines snake up the hill, almost like a spiderweb. Not too many leaves left on these old trees. . .

DAY 31 - Combining

There's a tractor and combine hidden in this shot -- so much dust is expelled when harvesting this grain field that you can barely see them.

DAY 30 - Ivy's brown now

This old barn is looking pretty bare now that the frost has killed the ivy leaves.
