Breezy Hill Farm

It has been quite some time since I have participated in Barn Charm. I just didn't have any new barn photos. Sunday Hubby and I were driving home from our son's house in Virginia and passed a few barns I could get fairly good shots of.  We had seen wind turbines from the interstate and took the next exit to see if we could get closer. As we drove down a small rural road I took quite a few shots. This is one of my favorites. The turbines seemed to go for miles. I was taking pictures of them when I happened to notice the barn bird house with the name Breezy Hill Farm. Seemed very appropriate to me. Other than the bird house this two car barn-like garage was the nearest thing to a real barn on the property but I hope you enjoy the 'charm' of the tiny barn complete with silo. Stay tuned next week for the regular sized barns I found scattered amid the turbines.
And now, for an announcement!

Hi everybody,
My name is Sam. Grandma stayed with me last week because my daycare was on a vacation break. We had lots of fun going for walks, making play-doh carrots, watching my favorite cartoons, reading and playing in the sandbox making pies. I know Grandma had fun with me. I'm glad she does because she's going to be a Grandma again! I'm going to have a little brother or sister. I can hardly wait. Neither can Grandma! :)

Those wind farms are so interesting. Some people think they distract from the beauty of nature but I find them fascinating.

Those turbines are so huge... and up close the blades move much faster than one would think, and the sound it is like none other I've ever heard... Thank you for joining in 'Rurality Blog Hop #29' Hope to see you next Wednesday for #30...
