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

Barn Charm Tuesday - Down Fish Hollow Way

.

Not sure why it took me so long to find and join this linky party, being a long time lover of barns, especially the traditional red variety.

Come join me as we wend our way through southern Vernon County, Wisconsin on our way to the tiny town of Valley.

As we wind through the majestic hills on County P, and just before we come to the intersection of Fish Hollow Road, we round a corner and - - -


Are greeted by this still nearly perfect miniature red barn.

What you cannot see in this photo is the small stone spring house directly across the road from the barn. A spring house was constructed over a natural spring and used for refrigeration in bygone days before the advent of electricity.

I am old fashioned by heart and love to see the days before modern convenience. That doesn't mean I'd trade in my shower, but I can appreciate the past.

Rebecca said...

Now you have me curious about the spring house. Can you get inside it, can you share photos of it?

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Welcome to Barn Charm!

That is certainly a beautiful barn, love the shape! Is it not sitting on the ground or is that an optical illusion?

You will show the spring house, won't you?

Can't wait to see more barns from Wisconsin... Thanks so much for joining this week's Barn Charm =)

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Hi Keetha, I'm happy you decided to join Tricia - I thought you would be a great addition to her many participants. This is a lovely pic.

I'm not sure we have that many barns around our area. But I'll start keeping my eyes open! :)

Tanya said...

What a cute little red barn. I know you like the red ones.
Thanks for stopping by to see my barns
We'll probably be seeing a lot more of each others barns in the coming weeks.

Rose said...

This is about as perfect as it gets!

Beth said...

i always wonder when barns are so close to the road ... does that mean that the road use to not be there? i wonder? great shot. (:

So sweet. I love seeing the posted barns on Barn Charm. I can't join in because I never see any barns around town!

Saun said...

Had to stop over and see just what is Down Fish Hollow way. Great pic
thanks for sharing

Great picture. There are a few old barns in my aunts neighborhood that they turned into party spaces. I love not only when barns are used for their traditional purpose and a new one.

A very charming barn! It reminds me of a few barns that I've seen driving to the Lake of the Ozarks in MO. A few of them are very close to the road too. Beautiful capture!

Dawna said...

What a great shot!! Makes you just want to keep wandering around the corner of this country road! That barn sure is close to the roadway!

Elaine said...

What a delightful scene and such a perfect little beauty!

KathyB. said...

Picture perfect red barn! Is it up on blocks? When I see these old barns I wonder about the history. How many cows, horses, or other livestock lived in them ? Well Keetha, so many barns to see and photograph, so little time!You are going to be busy. ( Happily )

Niece said...

An ideally styled barn.

What an interesting "meme" (is that the word?) to join. I love a red barn but here in the south they tend to be white or gray with peeling paint... The only farm I've ever spent time on, with our kids way back, was a Wisconsin dairy farm. We even learned about the curds and whey. Great photo!

A fine "barn charm" image of this great looking barn by the road. Interesting information about the spring house.

Isn't it just gorgeous that time of year, I can feel it Keetha!
I just read your note and had to chuckle!
I told Hubby to make sure he put a battery in there so you wouldn't have to mess with it!
Hugs friend,
Cindy

One of those little barns that sits so precariously close to the road, which was no doubt at one time only dirt. Cute barn. Great shot.
