A peek inside a working barn that results in a lovely design.
Susan says, “The first thing I notice is that this barn is not the traditional working-farm, barn red, but rather a happier and more whimsical red. The red of a circus clown’s nose. I wonder what the neighbors think? Inside the barn the dark, gigantic rolls of hay reach above the door – the new door with an oddly off-center design. The rafters and the buttresses above the hay hint at the massive size of this barn. The tiny little bird house, painted in the same hot red, is dwarfed by the barn. The farmer positioned it high above the ground so the baby birds would be safe from the cats. Every farm has barn cats, right? Virtually every shape is represented here and it’s fun to find them all. What shape is the bird house. A nickel if you can name it.”
Lucia says, “Wow! I love all the things Susan found in this photo. I remember coming to a screeching halt when I saw the big circles of hay inside the barn. That was the first thing I noticed and then I realized this barn looks like a mash of spare parts. None of the window are quite square and as Susan mentioned the door is oddly off-center. But it works. Right? All the parts come together to form an interesting design. By the way, good spotting on the little bird house, Susan.”
