Green Roof


This pretty little white barn with the green roof caught my eye 
and I had to pull into the drive to take a picture.

It was for sale. 
But, Mr. Garden does not want to move to the country.
Sigh....

    1. It was a couple of miles further down the road, on the other side of the hwy you came in on. Yes, I would love to have some acreage and a barn and a big ol' vegetable garden and lots of space for grandchildren to run and play and a pool, and..... LOL! I don't want much. ;-)

    1. How wonderful that the job offer meant a move to the country. I would be up for that adventure, should the opportunity ever arise.

    1. Well, Florida has a few things (like oceans) that we don't have. So it all evens out. :-)

    1. I would put my gardening tools and my John Deere tractor in it... The tractor that I would have to buy if I owned the barn and the land around it. :-)

  16. That is a lovely barn and wouldn't it be delightful to renovate one and move in. Think of the view from the windows! It reminds me of 'The Enchanted Barn' by Grace L. Hill. Thank you for visiting Knitting Kat. It was so nice of you to come by. Your blog looks inviting and I will enjoy visiting here.

  18. Hi Gayle! Thanks for visiting my blog. Wishing your son good luck on his finals. My daughter has 3 semesters left until graduation, then she is going to grad school. The barn is charming- would love to be out in the country! We are surrounded by green hills and love the openness...now if the houses were not so close together it would even be better! HAPPY December :)

  21. That is a beautiful barn. I 'd love to move to the country, but that will probably not happen. I guess that's why we like decorating country and vintage style.We can pretend it's out in a country setting.

    1. Yes, Leslie, we do have the option to decorate our homes in a way that reminds us of the quiet country life, even if we never live in/near a barn.

  22. I'll probably never move to the country either, but I love country pictures.
