Lonely Looking Barn

It may look lonely, but it's actually accompanied by a big quonset hut building.

Dearest Theresa,
It sure is a lonely looking barn. Quonset hut must be the smaller building behind the it. Haha, I needed to check the word "Quonsethut".

Happy I had time to be here earlier today♡♡♡

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

eileeninmd said...

Glad it is not too lonely! What do they use the quonset hut for? Storage? Great shots!

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

Ah... the vibrant colours of rust!

Dicky Bird said...

You're right, looks lonely.

Ana Mínguez Corella said...

Hola!!!...Beautiful pictures.. Congrats and regards..

Dianna said...

We went "barn-storming" yesterday, and saw quite a few quonset huts. I actually thought about that word itself - strange word that it is.
Happy Barn Charm!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I like the shot "hiding" the quonset building. ;) LOL! The beautiful shades of blue and browns echoed in the roof and barn are amazing!! blessings ~ tanna

Sandra said...

do you know if they use the quonset hut? love the trees on either end of the hut

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Great patchwork roof and beautiful blue sky. Lots of nifty barns near you.

RoeH said...

I'd take it. I've got to find a way to venture into Texas before I die and sail on to wherever. Hopefully up! It always looks so beautiful in your photos.

Gail said...

And I bet both are in good condition.

Janey and Co. said...

Some new homes in Colorado put an acid wash on their tin roofs to get that rusted look! Great barn.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

I bet those old walls could tell the great stories. It looks like another barn back behind it, or an addition of the main subject... have a Happy week~

Fireblossom said...

Barns are always so emotional anyway. :-P

Karen said...

Does anything live there?

Buttons said...

Morning Tex yes it does look lonely. Happy Presidents Day. Hug B

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

I love the way it sits out they on that open field - so much sky!

I never know what I'm going to see next on your blog, Tex. What strange juxtaposition of barny stuff... :-)

Leave It To Davis said...

I remember when some kind of can looked like that when you took off the label...I wish I could remember what was in the can. I love the arc building...is that the quonset hut? *sniff, sniff* I still want it....*sniff, sniff*

Julie G. said...

Great photographs of some very cool looking structures! So glad the rusty-roofed barn has a close neighbor for company.

Molly The Wally said...

Barn charm today yippee. Mind you hate to be in those when it is raining. Have a magnificent Monday.
Best wishes Molly

Our Neck of the Woods said...

What a cool, rusty barn. We have lots of those around here. I wish I had one on my property!

Jan n Jer said...

Very rustic looking..I like the view!

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

It sure is charming though Tex! It has a charming fence keeping it company too! And a lovely Texas blue sky.. :)

Allison said...

But deliciously rusty...

Jori said...

Beautiful! I love the gold field next to it! I always think the yellow sets off all of the rusty goodness! :)

Jill said...

Lonely and majectic with that rusted roof!

Daryl said...

they're like the odd couple

Michaele said...

You can make anything look good! These two do look like suited pair.

rainfield61 said...

If you find another one, they become the three stooges.

Montanagirl said...

That is a 'big' quonset. Hmmm... I like the old barn better! Nice shots.

Farm Girl said...

Wow that could be here. I need to go over and take a picture of the Quonset hut on our property. Some one from my family has lived in it since 1963 :) it is so cute inside.

Pierre BOYER said...

Best regards from France...

parker said...

I'm a big fan of the quonset style of building. Rugged, simple, and stands up to the weather well.

edenhills said...

Love the pattern of rust on the roof!

Linda said...

The whole place looks lonely! But the driveway looks well used, as do the buildings; so there must be some folks around to use and care for them.

Betsy Adams said...

Thought about you while in Arkansas --since we saw so many lovely barns while traveling the country roads...

Great barn ---and that quonset hut is interesting looking. Wonder what they store in there?

Hugs,
Betsy

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I LOVE that long gravel-y driveway...

Muffy's Marks said...

It looks neglected too!!

Raggedy Creations said...

That's a character barn Theresa.

Felicia

Sylvia K said...

Great old barn for the day!

don said...

I like the barn alone and the wider shot showing its setting. The shots make a good Barn Charm post.

Patty Woodland said...

I think it looks better without the quonset hut....heh

Ayu Maselli said...

Theresa, indeed looks lonely barn
anyway beautiful Texas barn ;)

Small City Scenes said...

It is lonely looking . I wonder if it is being used. MB

Stephanie said...

It looks abandoned.

Karen said...

That roof is great, I like rust on buildings.

Debbie said...

texas barns are gorgeous, it seems that most you show us are still in use!!

the hubs would drive right up that driveway, i would hop out and introduce myself. if you tell them you are a "photographer" that works well!!

well we are, photographers, and i'd like a closer look!!

Marie said...

Love the barn...not so much the quonset! :-)

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Someone went bold with their design and made a pitched roof! There always is a rebel among the crowd.

Lois Evensen said...

Two friends in the field.... :) Nice.

Flat Creek Farm said...

Love the colorful roof on the barn! Never underestimate the usefulness of a mere quonset.. ha. We have a mini-quonset (formerly the neighbor's hog hut). I think it's rather cute.. and the li'l donks use it as an "extra" shelter for wind etc :) -Tammy

MarkD60 said...

I've got a thing for old barns.

ladyfi said...

Oh, I love the colours of the ground and sky.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Love these photos.

Thank goodness you absolved me of my gluttony. I think everyone else is MAD. ;-)

Łucja-Maria said...

Beautiful barns ...
Lovely pictures...
Regards.

Red said...

Much more interesting detail in the first photo.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Charming barn and I love the roof! Is that another rusty-roofed barn behind it?

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
Very clever story telling with two photos!
Hugs,
Mariette

Candy C. said...

I'm glad the barn has some company! We have quite a few of those quonset hut buildings around here, they are pretty cool! Some are really big too!

troutbirder said...

Lonely looks indeed. Sadly we have lots of abandoned farmsteds in our county. And oh how I loved you big stick dog. With that big of a stick and big dog I'd stay you have a good start on homeland security...:)

Bob Bushell said...

I love the old style barn, and this is one.

SweetMarie said...

I like the rust with the dead grass. I never knew what those buildings were called, still don't know what it's for. LOL

Fjällripan said...

So charming! I really like the rosty roof1 :)

Sketchbook Wandering said...

I don't know what a quonset hut is...But it makes me think, you must have some vast spaces in your neck of the woods...or country...

Deb said...

cool barn...

Fábio Martins said...

You love that :)

Pam ;) said...

A lovely ode to rusty roofs and old barns that have yet to give up their charm.

barbara l. hale said...

I have a friend who grew up in a Quonset Hut. I always wondered what that would be like. She lives in a regular house now. I think she likes square rooms. Nice Texas barn!

Larry Ostby said...

The rust definitely gives character, I like it.

Sandy said...

We have quonset huts out here. I have never liked them, but I do like the barn next to it.

Terry and Linda said...

The best of all barns!

FOREST SNAPPER said...

Iwonder if the roof was made up of old bits of tin sheeting or if it just rusted in that random way ?

Judy said...

I'm missing seeing those barns from down there.

EM Illustrator said...

Looks very nice, seems to be a lovely area there. Enjoy your day!

DIMI said...

Very nice barn Tex!Great shots too!Have a lovely week!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

What the heck is it about rusty barn roofs that just tugs on my heartstrings?

SquirrelQueen said...

It is a lovely, but lonely, looking barn. At least the Quonset hut keeps it company. I once spent a few nights in one of those in Nome, AK. Brrr!

mick said...

I love the look of the wide open spaces in your photos.

Susan said...

Poor little thing. It doesn't look like it's getting any TLC either.

bailey-road.com said...

Looks like a pretty impressive fence around it.

Michelle said...

I love that rusty roof!

Amy Burzese said...

Lonely, but a great one.

Nell at njschout said...

What a peaceful setting!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Love the rusted roof on the barn. The quonset hut must be newer as it dosn't have any rust yet.

A Quiet Corner said...

Down there, you must have barns EVERYWHERE...here I have to go hunting but it sure is easier with this new camera!...:)JP

Elaine said...

Good to have company! That quonset hut looks more like what we see here, although most of them are as rusty as the barn.

c. Joy said...

I love the lonely barn. Looks like home.

Jo's World said...

When I was a kid, and WW2 had been won, there were quite a few Quonset Huts that were put up, mostly I think for people to live in while they built a house. Then they had a home and a nice little storage building!

Jo

Pat Tillett said...

Love the color of that rust! Just hearing those two words (Quonset hut) takes me directly back to boot camp and a lot of memories...
Nice pics!

Randy said...

Love that first shot.

Maria said...

Quite rustic looking.

Rose said...

I like both but boy, those trees there to the right look wonderful, too.

You mission, should you choose to accept it, is to go back and take pictures of the trees!

This message does not self-destruct.

Jeanne said...

Love the tin on that roof! How quaint!

Indrani Ghose said...

Lonely indeed, but a lovely shot!

Discovery School at First Baptist Heath said...

Love that.... and I bet that you think I dies... but I have been silently stalking you...

Miss ya!

Faye said...

Old and new side by side. Is the quonset used mostly to store equipment? Doesn't seem that it would be suitable for cattle. The old tin roof is determined to hang on, it seems.

Brian King said...

A little rusted, too, but that just adds to the character!

polkadotpeticoat said...

I love the barn and your new profile picture is wonderful....you have such a great smile! Heidi

polkadotpeticoat said...

What part of the military is your husband in?

pattisjarrett said...

I guess it's not lonely, after all!

Stewart M said...

What a clash of styles! I think I know which I like most!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Kris Beskidzki said...

This is a desert prairie?

Marco Alpha said...

Hello Teresa,
Very beautiful to see the landscape around this barn.
And what a great bly sky...!!

Many greetings,
Marco

Kris Beskidzki said...

ypical "Wild West"? Yours sincerely. :)

Genie Robinson said...

Thanks for the spelling lesson....I have FINALLY learned how to spell "quonset". It is a wee bit lonesome looking, but it is still pretty. While I was lost on my Joy Ride Sunday, I spotted a Texas style gated/fenced entry to a LARGE home. Cannot wait to post it. They are few and far between in these here woods. genie

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Nice metal barn- and rusty roof! I always think military when I see those Quonset buildings.

Saun said...

Nice shot it does look lonely...

Paula said...

Awwww.... its peaceful, yet sad...

Betty Manousos said...

lonely, worn but still distinctive!
love barns!

petspeopleandlife said...
