Love the windmill! You don't really see those around here.

Wanda..plain~N~simple said...

I saw plenty of windmills when I lived in Kansas, but have yet to see one here in Tennessee.

Mike said...

I like this place. Yes, I think it was the windmill.

RoeH said...

When I lived in North Dakota about a hundred years ago, there were so many old windmills. Why on earth wasn't I interested in photography then.

Sandra said...

that last photo has so many things in it that I love. the windmill, the barn THE TREES, the shadows of the trees. i noticed this beautiful farmstead doesn't have a gate, so maybe no animals?

Lynne said...

Opened fence leading right to the wind mill . . .

troutbirder said...

The windmills are always interesting. All the abandoned family farmsteads we have now in you county... not so nice. And the thousands of giants windmills.. necessary but not very nostalgic.

Jan n Jer said...

Love love the windmill...great shots!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

The windmills used to be all around when I lived in west TX, but now they are the GIANT windmills for the generators! LOVE the old one. blessings ~ Tanna

DJan said...

Nice! I have been noticing because of your pictures how dry it is there. I can see the drought everywhere.

Eva Ason said...

I love those windmills, they look so cool. You don't see them around here. Nice pictures :)
Have a great week!

Larry Ostby said...

You finished this post off with the windmill, great shot. I like i!

sweetdaysundertheoaks said...

I can't resist a windmill :) Very pretty Tex!

trav4adventures said...

Oh, how cute!

parker said...

I can still hear them squeaking to be greased. How sweet and cold the water was on a hot summer day!

Kathy said...

I like the looks of this place.

Reena Walkling said...

Reminds me of my childhood and our farm with the windmill. Don't see many of them any more.

Sylvia K said...

Yep, like the others, I do love the windmill! Great shots as always! Hope your week is off to a good start!

Sylvia

Val said...

Looks like a lot of the places around here. I was going to go on a windmill safari one day so, maybe it will be today! Great pics.

Judy said...

I love that last shot!

Jill said...

I was viewing these and thinking how much I love windmills...then I read your last comment. :)

stardust said...

I like your way to get us closer and closer to the windmill. I like to see it whirling in the breeze.

Thank you for the kind words on my latest post. Have happy days ahead.

Susan said...

That windmill is awesome isn't it? I love these pictures Theresa!

Karen said...

We don't seem them around here either, love it!....

Montanagirl said...

Love farmsteads! And that last shot with the windmill is really nice!

Madge Bloom said...

Don't you just love those old windmills... so rural America!

Linda said...

I've always been partial to the old windmills, too. They just have so much more character than the new wind turbines that are springing up everywhere.

ellen abbott said...

Nice. there's a windmill museum in Lubbock.

Giga said...

Wiatrak, jak na Twoim zdjęciu znam z filmów :-). Pozdrawiam. *** Windmill, for I know your image of the movie :-). Yours.

shutterbuggbitten said...

Barns are great. Windmills are wonderful. Together it is perfection!

Millie said...

I think that looks a bit small for my taste in barns, but I suppose it would be a good vacation home.

Sandy said...

I love windmills too! More though, I love the "say no to word verification". It took me 4 tries on a blog the other day to get it right! So frustrating....

Pricilla said...

How true...

islandwonder said...

I love those. It has been awhile since I have seen one quite like that one.

Comment1 said...

Oh, I love those little windmills! Part rustic, part industrial.

Bob Bushell said...

Nothing like it, windmill, beautiful.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I too am always fascinated with windmills when I see them out on the road even though most are all made by the same company AeroMotor it seems. Still they have their own individuality.

It's me said...

Wowwwww...happy new week darling...love Ria...xxx....

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Love those pics -- Kinda, sorta like an illustration from a book about "olden times" (like when I was a child...very olden).

Becca said...

Love these shots! Those windmills look so cool. I tried to get a few shots of windmills from I-40 when we were traveling by car last summer...mine didn't turn out too well.

Texan said...

I love windmills too!

IanH said...

I like the windmill. I wanted one, but they won't suck water up 210 feet. :-{

Evelyn S. said...

I love these old windmills! They have much more character than the gigantic towers on the wind "farms" around here! I also notice green grass...and am reminded of the difference in our climates this time of year.

Rohrerbot said...

I'm a huge fan of windmills. They are coming back in popularity for wind energy!:)

Nancy said...

These photographs are so peaceful and reflective....
I love the windmill; we don't see many around here in NC

Have a great day...

Robin said...

T, a lovely spread! Looks to be well tended!

Nancy Claeys said...

That's a pretty one!

Peggy said...

Okay, I am ready to move in! You find all the awesome farms and barns that make me wanna pack up and move.

Mom of M&Ms said...

i wanna move there.... you are going to encourage me to switch counties, aren't you???? :)

heyBJK said...

Yeah, I really like the windmill! Those are practically non-existent here. Used to see them in MI all the time.

Carole M. said...

..and great shadows created by the tree in front too

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I can't resist windmills...love them! It really makes the barn scene great!

Adam Tilt said...

Nice windmill. You're right it's hard to resist.

laurak@forestwalkart said...

not me...i can't resist a windmill!! ESPECIALLY when there's wind!!

cool shots!

Sally said...

Oh, I would love to live somewhere like that away from noise, over crowded subdivisions, etc. And, I always love your posts!

Andrew said...

Texas is looking a little green right now... guess what we are having a winter drought. Reports are out saying frogs and toads aren't spawning yet and are in decline...

Denise said...

I love these rural scenes, and I love the old windmills.

Shaun_ShutterBug said...

Everyone loves a windmill, great set of photos.

Fjällripan said...

Beautiful! We do not have windmills like these :)

Laura said...

Lovely tranquil scenes.

Southwest Arkie said...

Love the windmill- nice little place Teresa!

Paula said...

I can't resist windmills either. The orginal owners of the ranch put three so each kid has one on the part they inherited. Hey it has drizzled here all day. Hope you're getting some.

Sarah Knight said...

To answer the question posed in the post: no one.
; )

Tammy said...

Lovely!!! Looks like such a great place.

CameraCruise said...

Love the windmill!
Wish the ones we have here had the same size.

Dianne said...

I can't resist a windmill!!

bj said...

I really, REALLY want to move in here. Maybe we'd be next door neighbors and while you chase bulls with hammocks on their horns, I would make you a HUGE Banana Split. :))

latebloomerbuds said...

I like the windmill and just saw your sidebar about the no commenting on blogs that require WV. Good for you T! This comment form has changed. Looks nice. Margie

Linda R said...

Your photo of that windmill looks great.

When we first moved to our farm I really wanted a windmill! Thanks for reminding me so I'll get to nagging about that again! lol

rainfield61 said...

I love to see windmills.

We do not have this here.

Fireblossom said...

Not me. There is just something about them that's pleasing.

MarieElizabeth said...

I really like the classic design of this windmill, perfect for the setting. Although, I have to say the new turbine farms are really interesting as well, in their own modern way.

Chip Allen said...

I love windmills, too! Not enough of them around here.

Paula said...

Love the windmill! That thing must be huge!

Mama Zen said...

SquirrelQueen said...

There is no way I can resist windmills. I really like the one you found. Wish there were more here.

Hello Theresa,
Wonderful pictures. You've got a good depth view in your first shot. Nice with that windmill.

Much greetings, Marco

Great photos. The windmill is beautiful and they aren't found in our part of the world anymore. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment on my post. Blessings, Pamela

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Looks like a nice spread & I bet my dad would love to get ahold of the windmill... he has 6 or 7 of them at the farm, all different sizes!

I'm trying to get used to this new comment layout... but, of 4 people that I informed of the fact that word verif was turned on, on their blogs last week, only 2 has turned it off... I really thought everyone would comply, ya know?! Sheesh! =)

EG Wow said...

The land looks so flat but I guess that's great for tilling the soil.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Great shots of this old farmstead. I really like the closeup of the barn and windmill.

Rita said...

Now that's a lovely little farmstead. I could almost picture living there. :)

Genie said...

What a wonderful barn and windmill. It is a real charmer. Like the white color. Looks to be in good condition. genie

Nancy said...

Such a nice composition. Makes me want to walk through that opening in the fence and explore.

Gillian Olson said...

Great setting, I too love the windmill.

Pat Tillett said...

One of these days, we are going to surprise everyone in our family and move to a little farm or ranch. An old one...
Nice pics!

Country Mouse Studio said...

That's a beautiful place and some great photos of it.

Marie said...

Such a classic beauty, this wonderful farmstead! Picture perfect!

Linnea said...

I, too, can't resist windmills! Very pretty setting for this little ranch. I love the shadows cast across the side of the barn. Thanks for visiting my barn.

Roan said...

Looks like a nice, peaceful place. I like taking pictures of windmills. There are still a few stragglers up here.

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

I love me some windmills!!...hey, I notice you have a new pic of you up on the top left corner...are you telling us to kiss your arse? ;)
