Barns, blooms and birds - Week 2

I decided to make a series on barns, blooms and birds. So this is week 2 of this series. 

This barn is less than a mile down the road from me in Kentucky. The picture was taken in the fall when the tobacco was going into the barn to cure. I love the rust on this barn. Funny how the rust color on the barn almost matches the color of the tobacco. 



Did you notice the sky around the barn is such a beautiful shade of light blue?


The barn doors are closed and the curing process begins.



The daylilies have been in full bloom this week in my yard.





I was happy to see a white-breasted nuthatch at one of my feeders this week. He hasn't visited in several weeks. He's eating black oil sunflower seeds. 


The house finches visit the feeders quite regularly.


The male house finch is rosy red around the face and upper breast. 


The female isn't red at all, she is plain grayish-brown with blurry streaks. She is such a cutie in the pic below.


Thanks for stopping by for another day of Life in Kentucky - Judy.

Oh my goodness, I thought I had many links per week, but it looks like I've only half of your amount:) Love the barn you captured! its height and the colors;) It seems in animal kingdom the males are more colorful! Thanks for visiting me and have a great weekend!

Oh, and not to forget, you are very welcome to join the fun of SEASONS - started in May. Any experience during the season is a great subject. Only one photo is needed and doesn't require a separate post. Link is open from Sunday through Wednesday 7pm, Hope to see you there!

Wonderful captures, Judy! I love the stripes on the finch! It makes them look like they're wearing bloomers, lol!

Jann Olson said...

All the photos are beautiful Judy, but that barn made my heart skip a beat. It truly is postcard picture perfect! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

love the look of the little nuthatch :)

Phil Slade said...

Lovely birds and flowers Judy. Our lilies are just about to blossom.

Anni said...

The nuthatches and finches are a couple that we don't get in our yard, so this was a special treat today! Your lilies - yellow, the color of summer, are very pretty and the tobacco curing is such a fascinating process.

Thanks for sharing at I'd Rather B Birdin' this week!! Your participation is always very much appreciated. See you next week I hope!!

Tom said...

Barns and rust, two things that I like. Thanks Judy for stopping by this week and I hope that there a bunch more Kentucky barns for you to share.

Rajesh said...

All the photos are lovely to see but your birds fascinate me as there aren't a lot of different birds flying around here in New Zealand.

Jann Olson said...

Hi Judy, just hopping back to let you know that you will be featured at SYC this week.
