Good Morning! This is a fantastic old barn. Too bad progress is swallowing it up.
A most strikingly appealing barn. Sorry about the changes that some call progress.
ja tijden en gewoontes veranderen maar z,on kleinschalige ranch heeft toch ook wel zijn charme.
It is true a house instead of mountain. very beautiful that red barnhave a nice day
I liked it better thinking it was mountains... though I was pretty sure there were no mountains one country over... ;) blessings ~ tanna
county. Not country. ;)
nice. love the bold red barn. ( :
It's very sad when the country landscape changes due to cities expanding. Sweet barn!xo Catherine
When you mention the expanse of beautiful country being filled with 'big houses'. Ironic term 'big house'. I used to know that, in street lingo and conotation of being 'the prison', lol. If the shoe fits, right?
Do they sell hamburgers and chicken there? Oh wait, that's Red Barn...
The red barn was impressive, along the bare trees. Nice photo shoot!
this has a lot of ambiance .... frameable shots all
Hello Tex,A great barn. Really, when will these real estate companies and builders and developers leave the rural country side alone. That is a shame that your old area is getting built up.I found out last week, by chance.. as a friend is going to build a house in the village..and they have denied her permission.. now if you are a certain way out of the village.. you are only allowed to build if you have 4 hectares..and only then if its not under the green belt zone.. I am pleased about that.Here too though. The developers are moving in.. mainly outer city limits.
That red just pops! I hate suburban sprawl.
I love such landscape...Pierre
That little red barn has some character and I bet it is even more charming in the summer with those trees decked out in green leaves!
That's too bad - with the big new houses - happening here too. In 1994 mile or so past my house - 7 homes - today 18. Most big fancy ones too. Why would you build a 250,000 home in the middle of a field? With a barn across the street? Then complain about the smell??? I don't get it. Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
I hate when they do that!!! Great barn
Sou beautiful photografes.
i like all those trees, so many big trees... the barn is pretty and did i say i love those trees
Isn't that sad....the same thing is happening here. Even when you drive far out into the country, you'll be surpised when you round a corner and there in the middle of nowhere is another subdivision. I guess because cities extend their boundaries, the builders take the subdivisions out because they KNOW people want to have the conveniences that being in a city offers with the privacy that the country offers. That's what happened where we are. We used to be "in the country" in the city limits, but everyone else liked that idea, too, and now, 18 years later, we are in the middle of everything. I wish everyone else would go back where they came from and we'd get our pig farm that used to be our neighbor back.I love the barn, by the way. I love the grey and red combination, whether they meant for it to look that way, or the red paint just wore off and they haven't bothered to repaint. It looks good.
Preserve the red barns! Great photo, TexWis!
Cute little barn. So sad about the housing developments moving in. I'm sure you're thankful you've moved.
Morning, wonderful red barn, to bad all the build up, Blessings Francine.
A Red Barn perfect! Being swallowed by the huge homes, (and why so large in this day and age) makes me wonder, how long will Red Barn remain . . .
That red barn is just adorable!
OOoh, I LOVE that barn!! Red barns always pop out in such a beautiful rustic way against the countryside, don't they? Thankfully there are many in New England still, I love them.
the barn is sweetI love that you called it the old hood, I thought that was just used up here :)
We agree, too bad that developments are swallowing up the hood. Have a marvelous Monday.Best wishes Molly
Such a shame to see it all being developed. I do love that quaint barn!
Ahh, a wonderful red barn.
It must be hard to see the changes that are going on around the old sweet barn...
Love the old barn...shame the housing developement is taking away from the charm of this area!
Sweet barn! Too bad progress usually means a change in the surrounding landscape and not always in a good way. :/
Sad to see the older places that have character and personality being pushed out by the lifeless cookie cutter style sticks and bricks that are being built today!
I do indeed love the red barns the best. Reminds me of my grandparents farm I think!
Such a pretty little barn. Cities keep encroaching on our rural areas. But where else do we put all these people!
I played in my cousin's red barn that looks a lot like this when I was a kid. What fun we had! Love it...
love the barn, it's a beauty and the trees surrounding it, WoW!!it's no place for progress....can't those big developers who build those damn mic-mansions go somewhere else??
Looks charming, so far.
That's a beautiful little red barn. Such a shame the area is being overrun by big mc mansions.
There is something so romantic about old barns isn't there?
The little red barn is lovely!
Love that little red barn. I prefer to believe those are mountains and not giant houses :)
Housing developments really annoy me. Even though I live in one, I gotta live someplace.... I still regret all the country they take with it. So infuriating.
Now that looks like a Canadian barn!
Lovely little red barn. What a shame to see the development nearby.
Oh I love this photos! Just love how it all looks!
Beautiful picture!! Love the red barn
Love the red barn!!
The setting looks so homey and appealing. I hope the owner will be able to maintain his/her barn into the future despite the housing development.
oh yuck, a bunch of mcmansions...poor cute barn getting pushed out from the new neighbors :/
Too bad for the barn.
Where I grew up (full of orchards and cattle ranches) you can find not one...only subdivisions. It is progress....? I don't know. But it doesn't matter because it is now what it is.Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com http://deltacountyhistoricalsociety.wordpress.com
One of the most charming country scenes ever...and those houses look like SA Pyramid structures! Such a shame!
I love the way the grays blend in these photos. Something very fetching about this barn.
Give me a mountain, or an open space any day! The price of progress is steep.
That's happening here a lot too; all of the farm land is being sold off to developers.
Pewno czerwona stodoła jeszcze piękniej wygląda wśród zielonych drzew. Pozdrawiam.Red barn certainly looks even more beautiful among the green trees. Yours.
It tears me up when that happens. If our city has it's way this year, my front road will connect with the freeway. I will loose a good portion of my front yard. If they use eminent domain all of the houses on my street will be gone. It is so hard when the city grows and swallows up everything in its path.
T, a nice little barn at the edge of town!
Some change is not for the better.
Those houses are huge! Wow!
I hate to see property sold to developers and that's yet another reason we bought where we did. A trust borders us on two sides, our builder's Mom the third, the fourth is all frontage...about 2 1/4 acres down to the road!!...:)JP
Oh I wish it was mountains:) Hug B
Nice barn and bad housing people.
That is a sweet little barn!
Our country is being taken over by big housing developments. We gotta put all us people somewhere! Can't we build UP rather than OUT? :-)
Dearest Theresa,Rurality has its own charm of course but compared to Europe or Asia, this is still HEAVEN!Hugs to you,Mariette
I love barns and these photos are really great.
You're right, that is sweet. It looks like it could be swallowed up by the pretentiousness of man.
That is a great barn! We almost had civilization encroaching here a couple of years ago but, luckily for us, the housing market went south and preserved our rurality for awhile longer. ;)
I hate to see big houses swallowing up all the land. I hope this red barn survives...but I doubt it will.
Hi Theresa, Nice barn picture. The old barn across the pond from my place is slowly getting a new red paint job. Have a really nice coming week!
I hope that charming red barn can hold out! I just love your smiling photo in the sidebar!
Nice barn T. The houses look big enough to be pyramids. Yikes.
The red barn has great character. Too bad about the big houses infringing on the rural landscape.
Beautiful and the barn has the correct "barn-color", red.
That looks like it would fit right in around here!
Nice photos!I like the red coloed barn!Have a lovely day!Dimi..
Love that great pop of red:@)
I like that old barn! It's a shame about all the development. The same thing happens here.
if those are big houses in the background...they will probably swallow this cute little red barn up pretty soon....too soon.
Your little place was attractive. Idiots are building the mountainous houses here. Most of the time there are only two people in it. Winter heating must take most of their money.
I do like your rural scene T, but its sad to see developers buying up farmlands throughout the country. All that fertile soil will be lost forever.
Yikes!!! those are houses? That's a little sad, but it's still a very cute barn.
I hate it - but can understand why they would love to live in that beautiful country.
Lovely barn! Hope it sticks around!
I love the red barn. Glad you told me they were houses. Looked like pyramids are something.
Those houses look very close. Love the red barn!
I hate it when housing developments invade rural areas. That barn is lovely -- and so are you. Love the new pic of you in the sidebar.
Cute red barn still standing strong against the development!
Love that barn... isn't it amazing how those developments 'march' out into the country?
Holy schmoly! Those Texas-sized houses are definitely swallowing up this farm. Too bad for sure.
Such a pretty barn. With the influx of civilization, I'll bet you're glad you made the move to your present location.
That is a sweet little barn and farmyard. Too bad the land has become part of a development!
That is happening here in Connecticut, too. It's sad. And the builders pack them in with a shoehorn--no sense of space or air or light or anything pleasant at all.Love your profile photo.
Great photo and barn! Seriously, aren't there enough empty foreclosed upon houses available? Is it a requirement that every single bit of vacant land suitable for building, to have a house on it? Geez!I sure hope the barn stays there for a long time...
Love how the red pops out in the photo. It's sad to think that some day there will only be photos of rural life...
That's a great barn. I know what you mean about the 'progress'. People love the views, here in the Hill Country. Then, they all move out here, and soon all you have a view of is roofs....ugh.Thanks for dropping by my place.
You found another good one! I like the red.
That's happening everywhere great shot! Enjoy your week.
We've got some of that going on in our neighborhood. Just five miles down the road is the sweetest little barn and horses. I love to go down there and shoot. It's always so peaceful and feels like stepping back in time.
That's a nice barn. I hope its new neighbors appreciate what it stands for.
That is a cool red barn! I don't like when subdivisions take over country land.
What a lovely splash of red!
There's just something about a red barn....
Beautiful red barn :) Hanne Bente
Seems to be the same issue everywhere.
Dearest Theresa,The red barn sure stnds out with the nature. I can share the feeling with you, my friend.Love you always from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
I think you can tell a house is too big if it gets mistaken for a mountain!Very nice butterflies in post before.Stewart M
There's something about red that is the right color for a barn. I'm going down to Bisbee on the backroads next week and I'm going to look for them. I'll see what can be found.
Beautiful red. Love TX where new construction can sit next to a barn. :)
This one is definitely a "barney barn" with its gorgeous red. A rather dainty little one if I say so myself. Very inviting. genie
So sad when those big McMansions take over. Love the little red barn though--may it reign forever. MB
So sad to see the farms swallowed up by the suburbs.
Too bad about the big houses but the barn is beautiful!
Sad to think about that farm country disappearing. Good you documented the history.
we don't have many barns like this .
what a charming little barn!love the bold red too.
I'd much rather see barns & farms than housing developments... that's just my humble opinion.Thanks for so many Texas barn link ups, TWG, much appreciated! =)
it's happening to so much farmland here too. sadly, not much thought goes into where our bread and butter are coming from.
This type of houses I saw as a child the first time at Grandma Duck. The Donald Duck was for many children in Europe, the first encounter with the U.S..
Never get tired of red barns. As I often say, "Can't they leave things alone?"
The red is stunning!
