Thursday Doors ~ Red barn, painting in progress

Image

There has been a groundskeeper 

house and barn at our 

 local cemetery around 

since the 1800’s.

This barn has a new coat

of red paint. . .

a work in progress!

Thursday’s Doors ~ “details,” part 4

Image

Different roofing since original,

I am imagining and daydreaming.

Different grassy space overgrown

and covering instead of showing

stones or dirt path around barn.

The stone blocks and

wooden lathing look like the

original barn where  

the two double door sets,

as well as two single doors,

(other full length barn photo) 

look like they were made to serve 

utilitarian purpose in milling and

farming community located in

Delaware, Ohio. 

~ Stratford on the Whetstone ~

Thanks for sticking by me,

as I tried to march through the

dense grass where I feared ticks

or other bugs would burrow 

above my sock lines.

I could smell a marshy, loamy

peaty or earthy aroma, some mud

clumped onto the grid of the

soles of my tennis shoes.

This end of the barn especially

seemed to display its age, 

along with the owner’s

respect for its history.

Whitewashed barn siding

and newer styled green roof.

I liked green paint around 

windows and over boards.

Come on down here, y’all and visit

a fine and true piece of history!

Thursday’s Doors ~ outbuilding, part 3

Image

For me, the weather vane 

reminds me of the 

“barn on fire” post.

We weren’t quite sure 

but now, after taking a few

dusty, winding country roads

I think we can agree of its purpose.

The outbuilding could house pots,

farming tools, tractor or these days,

a riding lawn mower. . .

The stone work and different

identifying features confirm

1800’s period where it was

both a serene setting but

a rugged, “feast or famine”

time in history.

Thursday’s Doors ~ Stratford on the Whetstone, part 2

The grass so green evokes imaginary

memories of  farming,  milling, 

with families living in close-knit 

industrious community. 

Sacred ground, when people were 

“the salt of the earth.”

As I had noticed Dutch symbols

upon the barn, the total setting 

leaves purposeful, productive

lasting impressions 

upon my mind.

simple story of monthly

passage by this beautiful

pastoral setting by her, too.

Although not a door on this post,

I would like to remind visitors

to check out other doors,

Hope y’all enjoyed a little history

and could smell the clover, grass

and rich soil of Delaware, OH land!

The doors are up high for unloading 

onto the farming wagons. This is  

part of a milling community.

There are a few too many pictures,

no need to respond on all, but it

will show you the historic

landmark sign, both ends

of the barn building.

Thanks for viewing

and here’s my 

favorite host,

who has many

links to a wide

array of Doors,

Brrr- r!

the icy grass doesn’t indicate 

breezy and freezing temperature.

I remember my friend’s father when

she left the door to the refrigerator

saying, “Close that door!” Then, 

he would go further by adding, 

“You weren’t raised in a barn.”

Hope you will enjoy this

red barn door and go

ahead to check

Everyone had great comments 

about what seems to be a 

universal and common

expression about leaving doors open,

 which brings a scolding!

I have a dear friend, Sylvia,

who added a link in her comments:

Not sure if you would find bales of hay,

straw or just farm equipment 

“behind the barn door.”

You may know local farms

have fields of soybeans

starting to show green.

This barn door may

also have a piece of

plywood leaning 

against it.

Here is a great link
