Hello, hello! Is everyone having a good weekend? I hope so! It has been awhile since I did a photo share post, so I've got one for you today. "Rustic" is the prompt word this week over at the Our Beautiful World blog, and I have a rustic barn photo for you to see. I couldn't resist the texture of the weathered wood and peeling paint.
In this next photo, the visible power lines interfere with the rustic effect.
:) Still, the tree shadow on the barn looks pretty interesting.
This barn is located at a heritage apple orchard. It grows only "old fashioned" varieties of apples. The
big excitement when I visited was that the orchard staff had just
planted some trees of the Frostbite variety. Although the University of
Minnesota developed this variety back in 1922, the trees only recently
became available for commercial sale.
It will be awhile before this little tree starts bearing fruit...
...but in the meantime, the orchard had plenty of other heritage apple varieties ripe for the sampling. These apples may be "rustic," but they sure were yummy!
