barn charm - a vermont dairy farm

I mentioned staying home last weekend,
and this was one of the reasons why -

Greg and Laura participated in the Jimmy Fund walk to raise money for cancer research.
Although you can't really see it in this picture,
Laura wrote the names of everyone she walked for on her t-shirt.
I'm proud of their efforts and hope someday cancer will become a thing of the past.

Now - on to this week's barn.
Saturday, Greg had his whole afternoon planned out, and it was all to start with a visit to our all-time favorite coffee house - except - when we got there we discovered it was closed.
I'm hoping the couple who own it were on a much deserved vacation!

For some reason, though (and I don't pretend to understand male logic), this seemed to throw Greg for a loop - and he decided against doing his other errands, as well.
Of course I'd never take advantage of his quandary, but I knew just the place to go...

I've been wanting to photograph this very beautiful dairy farm in Londonderry, Vermont.
There was definitely the feel of autumn in the air - the leaves are starting to turn.

I love the weathered wood and cow crossing sign -

- the beautiful farmhouse flowers.
just as an added bonus
because you know how I love pictures of cows...

I am joining Tricia at Bluff Area Daily for

Thanks for dropping in!
