We are lucky to have two barns on our property, one very old, one pretty old. The old one needs work and if we're lucky we'll get a Barn Grant from the state, which gives matching funds to owners to help preserve Vermont's historic barns. Our barn even has "swallow holes," which look like small arched holes high up under the eaves, which were made to attract swallows for insect control and good luck. :-)


I used to live in Kelowna, British Columbia, and on the way to the ski hill, there was an old barn that was missing most of its walls, bits of roof, and was totally tilted over to the side. Every time we drove by, I would check to see if it had fallen over yet. I had visions of one too many birds landing on it and it collapsing from the 30g of excess weight.


Another great barn. It's more 'lived in' than the first.

    A series of barn photos I've taken or been sent. Barns are magical to me - they have so much character, and provide so much for the animals and farmers.

    These are photos of finished objects, knit pre-blog. Some of these date back to the early 1980's, not having knit since my mother taught me to knit a scarf at the age of six.
