I was driving to town the other day to check out a few Presidents Day sales. I saw these sheds out of the corner of my eye, and I had to stop and take a picture.
I've seriously driven past this old farmstead dozens, if not hundreds, of times, and I've never noticed it before. Maybe it captured my attention because the misty weather fogged out the surroundings and made the red buildings pop from the landscape.
It's funny how we take these little barns, sheds and farmsteads for granted as we drive down Iowa's highways. It's not something that people who live in the cities get to see everyday. I get to drive by cattle, hog barns, rivers and corn fields each morning on my way to and from work. And usually, it's a peaceful drive. I'm a lucky woman to live in such a beautiful, productive land.
Oh, and by the way, the snow is gone. For now. Here's hoping we don't get another snow storm next month.
