My Dot on the Map: Glazed Block Silo

barns 037

I love barns, especially how different parts of the country have different style barns. It is also interesting to see barns in different colors. In my younger years I just assumed that the “correct” color for barns was red, but there seems to be a wide variety. I also love the old style silos, especially the glazed block silos. White barns have been catching my eye lately so when I saw this weathered white barn with the red glazed silo, I knew we had to stop. The sheep and cows in the side pasture were like icing on the cake.

The sheep could care less about our presence but these little beauties wasted no time in greeting us. Isn’t that an adorable face?

  1. I’ve never seen a glazed silo – gorgeous. We have a big brown barn built in 1840 that housed horses. We can see where it was an apple green under the brown. Whatever the color, barns are historical sites that should be appreciated for their contribution. Love your photos. šŸ™‚
