Seems like the old building is losing the battle and will soon be overrun by nature.

Mother Nature in control.

It is possible that a lawnmower and a few gallons of paint could transform this place into something less interesting, perhaps, but more liveable.

This reminds me of how a house would look in Florida if let go for a week or two!

Someone may soon be stripping the barnsiding and making it into coffee tables, flooring or some other re-use.

I must admit I do like a garden to be a touch wild, not too neat but this might be pushing the boundaries just a tad too far. Hope you're enjoying your weekend Brattcat.

Sad but lovely, like an almost forgotten memory.

Parts of my yard looked like this in the spring before I attacked it.

There's a lazy gardener somewhere here...

PS: Don't ask for Malyss in Monaco, the local hero's name is Malicia...A soldier disguised as a monk !

Amazing how nature can embellish and add character to the works of mankind.

Virginia said...

But somehow they seem so perfect there, I'd hate to think of them being mowed down!

I love to see derelict buildings like this one, especially when they're rusty.

Oh wow, somebody needs a high horsepower trimmer.

I thought I heard something on NPR this morning about an feature on All Things Considered next Monday night about crime in Brettleboro. Do you know about this?

If I lived in America again and could...I'd do nothing but photograph the beautiful old barns. They should be protected and cherished. Sure some are.
