rolled barbed wire

I pass this fence post on my way to town, and this rolled barbed wire has been on this post since we moved here in 2010.  I always wonder why farmers keep rolled up barbed wire on fence posts.

the stare down

I just love how when you stop to look at the cows, they will look and stare you down :)

bethel chapel

I've posted about this church on my main blog before.  This church is getting more and more in disrepair.  This shot was taken in the fall and since this shot the church steeple has fallen even more over.

waiting for snow

The chains are still on this tractor.  Not sure if it had broke down this winter or if it's where the owners keep it.

a wisconsin barn quilt

I took some back roads home from Illinois last weekend, roads that I don't normally take, and I found this beauty.

Heading home from Madison last weekend, we passed a small vineyard.  Of course we had to stop and talk to the man who was out tending to them.  This is one of the crops that we are planning to add to our farm to go along with the strawberries, raspberries, apple, peach and cherry trees.

graffiti bridge

I've been meaning for a long time to take a shot of this, I finally did the other day.  It's a bridge for some train tracks that go over a creek/stream that winds on one side of the road.

sun going down

The sun just going down but still behind the clouds, making it look like a silhouette.
