I always feel a little sad when I see a farm site sitting empty.
A once loved and lived in farmhouse with barns and sheds slowly leaning toward the earth.
I often stop to photograph these simple farm structures…they speak to me…sometimes they really do…sometimes a critter or two live in them!
The beautiful Creeping Virginia is trying it’s best to decorate this little shed for Fall.

I feel the same, wondering who lived here and what stories these empty houses and other buildings hold.
Even Lucy will say, “Oh, that barn needs a family to love it.” when we see one.
Yes, I know how you feel! I get incredibly sad over empty rotting buildings….even decaying apt. blocks.
I LOVE how you caught the light in this photo. Beautiful.
Yes, how sad to see “empty america”! Where every it is.
Such a gentle soul you are Stacey. I love the description you’ve wove for your photo. Virginia Creeper is the most colourful fall show we have in Edmonton, so I always have loved when people use it. Tenacious thing to continue to grow long after the family abandoned it there.
We have a love hate relationship with Virginia Creeper…I love it, husband hates it. It is in our tree grove, and likes to choke out the Pines. I want to plant some by Rabbit Run Cottage?
I agree, seeing a farm idle is sad. Farms should always be full of life.
Many times, farms have been left to family members who no longer have an interest in living in the rural homes…they won’t sell it either, and it sits and deteriorates. Sad.
I agree – working farms are wonderful places – abandoned farms are sad. Beautiful photo.
It’s sad to see barns fall to the earth.
very poetic sentence that – and yes you are right
Me too, I always want to find a way to restore them like everything else I stumble across.
Yes! You are so wonderful at saving the “tossed away treasures”!
Thank you, Stacey. I get plenty of enjoyment out of the process of restoring the things I find into something that will be loved again.
I’m not really familiar with Creeping Virginia, but it’s beautiful! I don’t have a lot of experience with watching an old farm decay, but I think that would be very hard to see. You have such a good eye for beauty in all things, Stacey!
