Barn Charm Tuesday

I am once again joining in with other barn enthusiasts at Tricia's for Barn Charm Tuesday.

For this barn charm, we traveled the country roads in and around Osage Bend, the stomping grounds of my friend, Patti, at Osage Bluff Quilter.  We waved as we zoomed past her driveway, but I don't think she saw us.

As I hang out of the car window, hanging on tightly to my trusty camera, I sometimes a bit conspicuous and trespassing where I am not exactly wanted.  Aren't these guys beauties?  They don't look particularly happy to see me, though.






This farmstead is just beautiful.  I couldn't get close enough to get details, but with this many buildings, along with the fence, feeder, and hay bales, who needs a close up glamor shot?  I think it is perfect just the way it is.  What do you think?






















I still have the feeling something is watching me...

Gotcha!

Oh how funny, "Redneck" Mom has a "redneck" friend, as Jeremy would say.

You should have stopped by . . .

I don't recognize those barn unless they are down near the river on Osage Bend Rd.


I love the shot of you in the mirror!!!

Love the farm scenes, Deanna. And the shot of you in the mirror is cool!

No, I'd say those cattle don't look thrilled to see you - where you eating cheese or something in front of them? I wonder what goes on in their heads... I've heard they aren't the brightest of critters.

I like the mirror shot best. Lots of charm in *that* shot!!

Rita said...

They were probably wondering why the human was hanging halfway out the window. Great shot, though! Lovely barn. You were being watched. And love the shot of you in the rear view mirror!!! ;)

Too with your picture getting a picture :)

I love that barn scene. I am really going to go out and look in the next few weeks when I have some time off to see if we have barns here; I just don't think we do.

But I love your pictures you share of them!

Nice country scenery. I'm sure those cows were wondering about that camera. Loved the last shot. I have a few of those myself. LOL

Carletta said...

Happy Cows! Love that shot!
The barns look well kept and taken care of. Nice shots!

Funny in My Mind said...

Beef. It's what's for dinner.
Moo.
I always talk to the cows. I think they enjoy it.

Cute pictures. Unfortunately, most of the barns around me that I can see from major roads are all dilapidated and abandoned.

I've heard cows are not very smart, so I think it's curiosity of the strange creatures that ride in fast moving objects watching them (and occasionally trying to moo).

Good Morning Deanna! Just from my experience, with cows there is no in-between. They come up to the fence all interested because they are bored bored bored or they give you the stink eye and take off. I think this bunch found you interesting! Love your charming barn, it looks so typically MissouREE! The round bales and the touch of orange accent paint just make it all the more charming. Enjoy your Wednesday Deanna! I can't sleep!! Again.
