a veteran's day thank you - and barn charm

Before sharing my barn for this week,
I would like to wish a heart felt thank you to all Veteran's, troops, and their families.
As I spend the day at home doing nothing of any significance,
I understand that this is a luxury I enjoy because of the brave
dedication of all who fight for our freedom as well as the sacrifices
made by their families.

Newfane, Vermont - July 2012
For this, I am truly grateful!

This past weekend was one of those truly beautiful Fall weekends that makes
 this my most very favorite season.
Greg and I enjoyed the company of one of his brothers and sister-in law.
While we played tourist a bit, I took lots and lots of pictures of covered bridges.
The photos for these weeks barn charm actually come from a bike ride that Greg and I took
back in August.

There's a part of me that misses all this green.
I really like the vine growing on the weathered wood.

Vermont is full of photogenic barns.
In fact - so much so that our weekend guests began to scout out barns for me
- enthusiastically pointing out some for future posts.

Barn charm is certainly contagious.

Thanks for dropping in!


  1. it is indeed. like the goldenrod framing the barn in the last pic. :)

    i liked your veteran's day gratitude, too. :)

  2. What a lovely setting for those barns. The hills full of trees are beautiful. Bicycling is a great way to see the scenery.
