I miss our Barn Charm Tuesdays.. I liked seeing other's barns and posting my own photos of them. Something "charming" about them. I hope that one day they will reopen a blog site for them. Now I am posting my own photos today.. Hope you enjoy them.  As you can see there is still plenty of green here and up north. These photos were taken last week. This barn was very close to the road.. I was so surprised.

Cannot remember where I took this, just loved the see through look of it. Wondered if they use it for anything. It did look like something was stored inside.

I liked the doors, this barn had horses on the door..sorry for the blur taken from the road through the car window. Wish I had gotten a better view of the writing above the door.

I took this last fall in northern Michigan near Grand Rapids.  I just loved the whole scene.

This barn roof was eye catching and very creative but what I saw later was several buildings. One was a winery tasting room and the other a gift shop.
From the road this place was huge. Even better when we visited it.
Here is more info on the place,quite a family business.
They used the barn and turned it into a cider mill. Very huge with a complete ramp for handicap access.

Could not believe there was a chimney on top of that barn, made me wonder if someone was living in it. 
Looks like a Tin roof on that old barn but I love the vine growing on the silo too.

This one is kinda blurred, taken while driving by, two toned and odd shaped. Was not sure just what kind of barn it was.
All the barns were located in northern Michigan.

This barn was so nice having it's own little house behind it. Loved the metal roof, they certainly wanted it to last a long time. Given the winters we have here in Michigan that's a really good idea. 

This barn looked like it had been just bright red and the roof so neat and new looking. I loved the windmill next to it.  It was taken in northern Michigan last fall.

Corner of barn. This barn is over 70 years old. Has had two roof repairs
but never anything on the siding. 

This was a chicken coop I think..not much left to it.

FRONT side of  same barn two months later, looks much better than the back.

Loved this red roof barn. It was hidden by a lot of trees.
Very well painted with white windows. 
Driving by I was surprised this photo showed so much of the side. This was taken  in
April of this year. Things were pretty dry here then.

Loved how the yard was nicely mowed and kept and the barn was ...
well..not kept up. Didn't look like it was used for anything at all. Nice roof

This was a drive-by shot..just a neat old barn which still  had some color left to it. Find More Barn Charm Tuesday here

My surprise was.. some of the windows are not real..they are painted on.I loved the little stone building, I think they used to be called well houses a long time ago. Where the  water pump was located.
Below photo shows how large this whole barn was. Very well painted and cared for. Just amazed me at the artistry of painted on windows. The real windows are the smaller ones The large ones had painted on slats going across. The door below is real.. NONE of the windows are. The silo was all white. 

Could not resist this photo,poor barn roof probably collapsed from weight of snow or some such thing. Everything was still in the barn all covered in snow. The outside looked in rather good shape.

It is falling apart now and abandoned .. MAYBE... there is the sign and who in
there right mind would care anything about that building.. very strange indeed.
Not sure who owns the property, there is no fence or gate or even a driveway.

This old barn is still standing inside the city limits of our town, not sure what is stored inside it now. The family who owned it is long gone, the property sold. I just noticed recently that the roof looks like it is sagging in the middle. This barn was the place where groups of kids would gather and make floats for the homecoming parades. Remember when they did that? Oh the hours of hay rides and fun we had in that old barn. It has not been kept up by the new owners, sad to see it this way.

ALL the outbuildings and barn were yellow on this property. Yes, the house too. wish I could have gotten 
a better view of them all in this drive-by shot. 

YELLOW BARN...yes it is... here is the kicker... the house was blue the shed was pink and the barn yellow,
Another building was Red. It was a rainbow effect at this farm. Quite the eye catcher. I always
thought that barns were RED..not so..a rainbow of colors I guess..still looking for a purple barn  or maybe a PINK one!

I was surprised by this farm they had 3 barns and one large long shed. Here you see two barns and the shed and one large barn in the distance. It must be a very Large farm to need so many barns. All had metal roofs and in pretty good condition. The only one that had a foundation was the barn in the front of the property. This was a drive-by photo. 
I love the swing set near the barn, you just know this is a working farm with a family present.
The little white building resembled a chicken house. I was sorry I could not get a better photo of it. This barn also had a shingled roof.

I liked this barn because it seemed to have a basement of some kind under it. A stone foundation and a STAR you can just barely see through the tree. It was huge. Very well kept barn and area. It did not look really old.

I loved the fence and the barn. I loved the colors and the red roof. Most roofs are metal or darker or sometimes white..this one was red. The contrast with the white covering of snow just said something to me. It was a cloudy gray cold day. Both photos were taken in southeastern Michigan.

This was a neat cow barn filled with hay taken in northern Michigan. You can see below how they keep their calves in tiny little houses all their own. So cute. 
I am wondering if they keep them inside there all winter long. Wish I could have stopped and asked many questions. It was a very nice working farm.

We got a slight dusting of snow last week and some of the barns in our area were just so wintery looking. I decided to share those here for BARN CHARM Tuesday. You can see some other great barns at the link listed.

What amazes me is that the barn looks sooo old and run down and yet they put a brand new roof on it and the smaller barn. Goes to show that even though it looks old the wood may still be good. What talent it must take to put a name on the roof like that and get it perfectly centered in white shingles on both sides..etc. I guess there are roofers and then there are professionals that know their business. This barn and property has been there a long time and so I am sure the family is proud of it. There was snow as of Saturday but now the rain and temps rose so today the field is brown.

This is Barn Charm Tuesday and this week I entered this photo. Does it look to you like the big barn is a house? As I drove by I wondered if someone made their home out of the large barn. Several other smaller ones around it and sheds. Sorry it's a little fuzzy as the sun was shining right at me. I can't imagine the cost of heating a barn that size here in Michigan in the wintertime!! (Click for better views.) 

The second barn this week is a barn I pass on the way out of town. It looks like it is pretty old and ready to be torn down. Doesn't look used anymore but still retains some of it's color. 
We might be in for some more of the white stuff around here.. not sure if it will hit where we are as bad as Indiana or Ohio though. I wonder how these birds can stay on the ice like that it makes me cold just watching them. They sure started honking as soon as I stopped to take their picture. They have been around all winter this year.

While traveling a two lane road to Manistee last year I took this photo of an old run down barn that was on it's way out. I noticed another smaller one in just about  as bad a shape. I loved the shape of the smaller one. The large one had a tin roof. The roof will outlast the building despite the bad winters they have there. 

On the way back home I spotted this one..
It was used as advertising and for their farm. Place was pretty busy. I never stopped but here is the LINK so you can see what they sell. I must check it out if I get back in that area. 

For here.. we are looking at another storm to come through..this time maybe 4-6 inches of new white stuff. Me.. I will wait and see they keep changing the forecast several times a day.
