Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Good Old Badger State

.

Come along with me on a picture tour of my little corner of America's Dairyland.


No tour of Wisconsin would be complete without the quintessential classic old red barn with traditional silo.


The family farmhouse can be seen beyond and the "new" sheds behind the barn.


Across the highway is a farm with "new" barn and silos - - - probably at least 40 years old, which really is "new" by comparison to the red barn with its silo.


Snow covered pond


Frozen footbridge


Towering pines


I can't get enough of the irregular pine profiles against the sky.

Oh you know I grew up in your great state so these photos are balm to my soul. Red barn and snow are perfection, so thank you.

It looks very cold! I love old barns, silos and farmhouses. It kinda looks like here in Jackson County, where I live

Gosh Keetha, it looks like a Christmas card. I appreciate the tour - I would like to visit during the summer when it is so miserable down here but maybe not when the snow on the ground (how would I function in that snow???).

It is very pretty! Love the old red barn!

If you ever go to golden colorado ( think thats the town) you can go on a tour of the celestial seasonings factory, its fun.

It is nice to see our winter scenery get such nice treatment, and kind comments. Our county looks a lot like yours. You may have prettier barns though.

I'm thinking I'll have to take a barn tour. They are disappearing in favor of metal pole barns.

Beautiful photos! Even with all the snow we've had this year, I still love it. You have a lot more pines than we do. We're down by the Illinois border.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
