A typical barn I pass here in North Carolina. I believe these tall, narrow barns once were tobacco barns. If you look closely, you will see just how close some hug the road. Across the street is a very nice subdivision, obviously it was once a farmer's field. I have linked this to Barn Charm #72
The photo below is not a tobacco field, but I thought this made a nice touch of romance for "Valentine's Day". This is not my husband, but my goodness, this makes farming look quite attractive! My poem below was written for a poetry challenge for this... image.

Swooning from the heat
As do I
To this farmer, my husband
In this sea of gold
