Barns, Blooms & Birds - Week 6

The barn I have to share this week is an unusual barn but yet beautiful. Can you tell what is unusual about this barn?

Here is what's unusual about this barn, you can drive through it to get to the house behind. Wouldn't that be neat to drive through a barn to get to your house.

Love the quilt block on the barn. 

This barn is one of my favorites around the Murray, KY, area. It has such a beautiful setting surrounding the barn with the white fences, and corn in the fields.

The back of the barn is also noteworthy.  I love the cannas in bloom along the sides of the barn. Did you know cannas are a lilly type of tropical American plant. Gosh, I haven't had cannas in years, I think I need to add them to my yard next year. 

The blooms in my yard aren't as plentiful this week but happy I have some petunias in a pot to share. 

My daylilies are about done for the season, I only had two blooms today. I have really enjoyed them and hate to see their blooms end.

The elephant ears in my yard have certainly done well this year. My friend, JoAnn, from Jo On Legacy Lane, shared bulbs with me in the spring. 

She gave me so many that I planted the extras in a pot on my back deck and look how they have grown. I should have plenty of bulbs for next spring. 

I'm so happy that I have been seeing a few goldfinches at my feeders again. The house finches visit each day and their young are at the feeders too.

I was lucky enough to capture a few more good pics of the Northern Cardinals at the feeders. 

That's it for this week, thanks for stopping in for another day of Life in Kentucky - Judy.
