Photo Share

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!


Want to see more rustic photos?  Head over to Our Beautiful World and see what the other participants are sharing this week.

Looks like a lovely day. The tree shadow pic is my favorite, even with the power lines. Fun fall post.

Hi Denise, oh wow that is such a wonderful old barn with the peeling especially with those gorgeous autumn trees - I think our house could classify here as it definitely need some paint. Thanks for sharing with Our Beautiful World, cheers Robyn

Beautiful take on the word rustic! Beautiful old wood and love the apple trees. We live in an area here with lots of apple trees, also very old ones. We even have some in our garden. So yummy :)
Thanks for joining us at OBW. Hugs, Wendy
