in this barn

cows are welcome, dogs are welcome, people are welcome,
but never, ever, ever, ever are bats welcome, says sweet judy green eyes.

Yet, it looks like a place that welcomes everyone and everything!

Awww, but why not? It's fascinating listening to the fruit bats flying outside our house at night. The poor things get disoriented during New Year's Eve though.

This is such a picturesque scene and something I am not likely to ever see. What's in the little shed? It almost looks like a playhouse beside the big barn.

Congratulation for the picture, so different from Spanish farm.
Nice.

great image and great sentiment. we have bats around at night and they go after the saguaro cactus fruit. I like your cute dog photo also. I hope all is well. We have been working too much lately. Soon things should settle down. Great photos on your site as always.

A beautiful spot. Here in the southwest, we try to attract bats to reside near us. They significantly lower the insect population.

Beautifully bucolic scene.
I'm with Sharon...I like the bats to be around.

This is such a gorgeous place. I'd like to visit but probably need more of an urban environment for the long term. Too much solitude drives me batty!

And I'm glad to hear that ghosts don't bother you at all. So, if you come to visit, just book at room at the Seven Sisters Inn, and then when you get spooked, we'll come and rescue you and take you to Tijuana Flats!

I'm sure bats find this as lovely as I do! :-)

Lovely old wood. What's wrong with bats? Over here, they are now an endangered species after so much persecution...

I find it difficult not to agree, I really dislike the poor beasts...

Birdman said...

So neat and well groomed... Maine farmers would be envious! hahaha

Wow that's pretty! But I agree with you.

A delightful scene, lovely barn and stone wall. New England at its finest.

Why no bats? They could eat the mosquitoes and flies. . .
