fickle skies

Never know what to expect from our skies lately, when I left the house this morning it was a cold rain and I noticed the low snow level in the hills, but by noon the sun was making a valiant effort to come out and warm up the air. I wasn't expecting great sky photos so this was taken with my cell phone and a cool app "Retro Cam"

Charming Barn

Been waiting to get a good shot of this recently renovated barn, it's on a busy road and my drive by's have been awful shots, so I pulled into the cemetery across the road to capture those beautiful windows and cupola.

cruise on over to Tricia's Barn Charm for more charming barns

Sophie, the other twin was very patient waiting for the click.

my grandson Dylan is always in fashion if the grubby little boy look is "in"

Princess Fiona spends hours sitting here just looking

For Sale

Doubt I'll run out of barns to shoot around here but lately the weather is suitable only for drive by, windows up shots, no awards for sooc. This stately barn is cared for but the use?? It is for sale with a fixer upper house. I'd move in tomorrow if I could.

This is the first time I'm linking up with:

I'm so excited to start this project that I may just go back and post photos of the previous 12 weeks. this week is spring green 

Lobaria pulmonaria, a common lichen in Pacific Northwest forests. 
Well that explains it, doesn't it?  It is a lovely spring green though.
