Barn Chronicles/Thursday Doors

Divying out the Missouri barns for a few more Thursday Doors. I hope you’ll enjoy my finds. Growing up in rural Missouri, I’ve seen my fair share, but they don’t last forever for many different reasons. So….being we’re social distancing and the drives are allowed around here, I’m taking the chance to capture some discoveries.

On the way to Mother’s

Ivy gives the appearance there’s a tree growing in front of this barn.

From the Farmer’s Almanac, “Rust was plentiful on farms and because it killed fungi and mosses that might grow on barns, and it was very effective as a sealant. It turned the mixture red in color. When paint became more available, many people chose red paint for their barns in honor of tradition.

Cabbage Rose-ish

A little garden goodness to share. First time I’ve used netting to keep the ‘cabbage moths’ from laying their eggs. Pretty pleased with it. Side note: It also helps protect from the pelting of hail.

  1. Just like churches, you can’t go wrong with a lovely barn and these shots are good examples.
    Sorry for the very late reply this week. Been spending the weekend getting the garden planted. I envy people who have a longer growing season 😉
