  1. Mark down another one that has never seen a yellow barn, in NC nor my travels! Brilliant find, Mike! I love it! 😀 Hope you’re having a grand day!

      • Thanks Tina. Just part of living with things like motor homes. If I don’t go this weekend, we’ll just go next weekend. You are kind of sweet, you know.

      • Aww gee, thanks. 😀 Same is being spread around about you, ya know! I’ve never been one to just follow the crowd, but I’m with ’em on this one! 😉

        Sounds like you’re used to the ups and downs of plans being on and off again. I hope it’s inexpensive and you’re on your way!

    • I don’t think I’ve ever seen a yellow barn before and I think it works really well. Wonder why no others?
      Thank you for looking and for commenting.

  2. Yellow is known as the ‘color of hope’…this shot imparts serenity, contentment. A real beauty, Mike…and, though you are not quite as ‘old’ as you make out to be, I must thank you again for your wonderful shots of CO…a place I’ve never been.

      • As I appreciate you, and our ‘cyber friendship’, Mike!

        BTW, love the beard…and your ‘devil may care’ hair that’s not spoiled by a helmet.

        As of 12:10 P tomorrow, gotcha by three…but we are of the same wonderful era!

  3. I googled “history of painted barns” to see if I could find out why they are painted the way they are. It appears that through time red became the standard because it was easy for the farmers to mix from scratch and was cheap. Then whitewash became cheaper and barns began to pop up white. Now it doesn’t matter, really. All colors are available. I really like this yellow one. So happy!

    • I thought it was stunning. I read once that the fastest selling homes were yellow. So if its ok to paint our barns any color we want, mine (the one I’ll never have) will not be red. I think I’ll take a poll and leave it up to my horses.
