Location: Near Lac Du Bonnet, Manitoba, Canada…I would estimate this old barn, was built in the late 40’s or early 50’s, but can not confirm that!!!

You just got to love a little old barn
Touched by time with it’s own charm..
The weathered wood, shines bright in the sun..
Proud and still standing, it’s time isn’t done.

Think of the tales, that could be told,
If barns could talk, of memories they hold.
Each one is different, no two are the same.
To see them fading away is a shame.

From the poem Down on the Farm by Connetta Jean

    Just like the old farmers, the barns get old. The farmers die and are buried and the barns remain as a testiment to their livelihood. They are almost like a shrine.
    Great capture and write-up. Barb
