Friday Farm Fotos: Whole lotta paintin' goin' on

After several rainy days in a row, it's nice to see the sunrise this morning!
And then of course, the fog moves in...

Instead of "Gorillas in the Mist", this is "Sheep in the Fog."

Lily poses in front of my Fall decorations.

The pumpkins have now been test-licked for freshness.

Remember back in the March when we built the bovine barrier?

We finally got around to painting it.

We liked the color so much, we got a few more gallons and...

Painted the big barn....

Painted the sheep barn.....

Painted Hubby's tractor shed....

And painted the chicken coop.

The Silkies are especially thrilled with the new paint job!

Really, they are.... they just have a funny way of showing it...

The house is next, but we won't be painting it- it just needs a fresh coat of stain and we're using same color that's on it now.

But before we do that, we are going to celebrate Lily's birthday, which was yesterday...
Look out PetSmart- here we come!
(And Chik-fil-A... her favorite restaurant...*grin*)

Happy Friday, everyone!


  1. Everything looks so nice and fresh. I love the barn and sheep shelter. It looks like you put a lot of hours in.

  2. PAULA!!!! I gasped from the beauty of your photography, I nearly sucked coffee the wrong way. OH MY STARS!! The rays of sun, the fog... you need to frame these.

    I started to smile reading of all the painting goin' on and then started to fear you got carried away and got that wild look in your eyes as one does when they get so focused they cant stop.... I feared you painted Lily and the animals to match the structures. Whew! I see they are all okay and the Silkies are fine.

    The Silkies are too cute!!! I could watch them all day... have you any video of them? If I could have chickens, I would get a few of them, I love the pantaloons.

    YOUR property LOOKS Awesome!!! LOVE the color you chose for the painting.

    God bless and keep you all safe!

  3. Wow thats alot of painting:O Everything looks just beautiful, and Happy Birthday to miss Lily, she's too cute!!!!

  4. The brown paint color looks wonderful!! I hope to have chickens, and maybe goats in the next 5-10 years. : ) Thanks for sharing the lovely photos!!

  5. These photos are marvelous... I also have been imagining our barns so lovely. My paint is ready though a barn red, but not a brilliant red, a little brown tone in it. I love the sun shining through the mist photos. Here near the Rockies, our mornings are so much like this. I love the glory the Lord brings to each of us... to help us get a glimpse of Him. Thank you for this lovely post... encouraged my day!
