Barn Charm

Some Amish farmers still set up shocks of corn in their fields, a rare sight nowadays. Linked to Barn Charm at Bluff Area Daily

Love those 'stuks'...is that what they are called?

Judy said...

The Amish in our area here do the same thing.

Very nice shot with the snow and the corn in the foreground. The red barn just pops in your shot.

Lesley said...

I looked up the term 'shocks of corn' and also got an alternate meaning for shock - a thick bushy mess, esp of hair. So this gave me a bit of a chuckle!

Beth said...

i guess the corn is just decoration or is there a point there? i love the red barn against the white snow. (:

Rose said...

This is a beautiful shot!

A beautiful red barn.

I'm glad to see you back in blogland, Carol. I've missed you over the past year!

The Amish in my part of Missouri put their corn up in shocks like this.
Love the red barn in the snow!

Barb said...

Love the corn stacks which make such an interesting visual statement.

Rebecca said...

What is the purpose of the shocks of corn? It does make the photo more interesting.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

The red really pops in contrast to all the white snow, doesn't it! The shocks of corn isn't something we see here except in Thanksgiving displays on porches, but it's neat to see so many out in the field!

Thanks so much for joining this week's Barn Charm, Carol! =)

Carol said...

The corn shocks are left in the fields for the corn to dry and then it will be used for feed for animals...but I think these were left too long!

The red is so lovely here! And the corn in the foreground is wonderful!

I love the red barn, white snow and brown shocks. Very striking. I remember when farmers used to shock corn back in the olden days. That must mean I'm old.

Tanya said...

beautiful!

I was just going to comment about what a rare sight those corn shocks are, but you explained it when you mentioned they were done by the Amish.

I just love everything about this picture.

Margaret said...

ADORE those corn shocks. I have never seen one for myself.

Not a sight we get to see out west! Very nice...
