Last week I began a series of seasonal photos of a group of barns
that are in my favorite photo-taking area out west of my small town.
Barn Charm # 68 featured them in the snow that enveloped us a month ago.
Last Saturday I took a drive hoping to see signs of spring.
What I found instead, was still the brown tinges of remaining winter.
However, I snapped away.
These were taken March 30th.
This is my favorite barn of all that are around here.
It has an Ohio State emblem on the other side
and a buckeye (our state's nut).
I rarely am able to get a photo of it for a variety of reasons.
It always amazes folks as to how close it is to the road.
I got a first-hand experience with that closeness
as I saw this beauty.
If I had opened my passenger door,
I would have been almost touching the fence with it.
I was so close that it was difficult to get a photo of the doorway
to the little one's home.
It was a busy day out there and a car came up behind me.
I pulled forward and over a tiny bit (all that I could manage).
I waved him around and then saw that the farmer
was standing back 'a ways' looking indignant and wary.
I then realized he had seen my car come down the hill
and realized it had stopped by his colt/pony (?).
So I waved and hurried on my way.
(My camera's battery had run out right then too.)
I was unable to get a shot of the 4th barn in the series
as it was across from this one
and there was a group of folks standing in the homestead's yard
close to it.
I will venture out again this weekend as it is supposed to go up in temps
and perhaps some green will be coaxed out to herald in spring.
Meanwhile, hop on over to Tricia's place
and check out more barns.
