Even an old barn looks good when surrounded by all that lucy green foliage.

Joop Zand said...

I like these old barn pictures, nice combination in the green fields.

Sandra said...

love that fine fencery shot, the greeen of it all is so beautiful. great composition. the barn at the top looks almost to low to walk under, seems shorter than most.

Kathy said...

It looks like Mother Nature is finally giving this barn a little shade!

I love green, and I have abundance here.

All the green sure dresses up that old barn. Nice to see everything growing good this year.

Annette said...

Very green! I don't imagine your green sticks around long... it doesn't here, that's for sure.

Homeschool on the Croft said...

Wow ... that green is *really* green! I love the contrast between the 'life' and newness of the green, and the dereliction of the old barn...

bailey-road.com said...

Lovely greenness! Looks like the tree is growing through what remains of the first barn.

Paula said...

Our green is disappearing fast and the wind is not helping any. Have a beautiful Monday!

Susan said...

You must just be relishing in all of that greenery after last year! Great barns shots.

Any barn looks good in all this greenery -- even the dilapidated one! Wonderful captures for the day!!!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

The green is so nice. I know it soon will be replaced with yellows and browns lasting for a much longer time. Too bad it couldn't be the other way around.

Great old barn surrounded by all the greenery and fencery. Love it!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I love photos like this. I want to live in the country on a farm. No I don't want to do farm work! But I would love to plant a large garden and do some canning. A girl can dream....

Ellie said...

Lots of lovely healthy looking green grass there.

Michael said...

glad to see there's no drought there

holdingmoments said...

A very lush looking green there.

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

Great photo! Look at all that beautiful green grass...can that be Texas? We finally got a good rain over the last two evenings so hopefully that will get our pasture seed sprouting and the rest greening up and growing too. I hope your weekend was a good one and that you have a wonderful week!
Maura :)

Hmmm, I wonder what was there first...the barn or the tree?

Awesome amount of green.

The contrast of the aged barn and the greenery are great!

Tracy said...

well, I love the greenery; take advantage of it while it's still spring green :) pretty barn!

Sandy said...

Wow! Living in the desert I tend to forget how green other parts of the country get.

Louise said...

Ahhhh, how I have missed your lovely pictures of the Texas countryside. It's good to see everything so green and lush again, after the hard time you had last year with drought. What's the prognosis for the weather this year. I certainly hope that you are going to get more rain. I wonder if your pond ever filled up? I'll have to check some of your old posts and see.

Andrew said...

It's great to see tour countryside looking so lush and green..
I hope you have a cooler summer than last year ( or was that normal?)

Rohrerbot said...

This looks to be a barn where two teenagers in love would hop the fence and make out:) Or where a scene from the movie Footloose would happen:)

Pearl said...

Oh, MAN! Look how GREEN it is!! Minnesota is on its way, but how beautiful to be in Texas right now, huh?

Pearl
