How ironic that my previous post, in which I lament the lack of an old barn, should be followed by this one, featuring an old barn (whose boards are intact and one from which I wouldn't dream of pillaging.) This barn is on the property of Woodwynn Farms, an intentional therapeutic community. We go out a couple of times a year to help out in various ways with our church. Yesterday Tim's team repaired the deer fence intended to protect the vegetable garden. My group weeded the herb garden, pulling up thistles and blackberries grown high over the winter and spring.
Blackberries are a scourge around here. We enjoy all the fresh berries and free fruit in late summer, but the brambles can quickly overtake untended land.
I enjoyed photographing the textures of the wood, the mossy roof, and the weeds growing high around the barn while waiting for everyone to arrive.
