Corn crib gazebo . . .

I have large plans for Spring.  Seriously large.  I've been on the lookout for an old corn crib since, oh, forever and I've had a hard time describing what I envision.  Lo and behold!  I came across this picture on a website - The Mustard Seed - and here is my vision in the flesh!

We have two pads here on the farmette that both held old silos for many years.  I removed the old auger from one and it will hold my Purple Martin house later this Spring.  The dryer and blower portion is still covered with a vented steel cover that is about 6' square and my plan is for that to become a firepit.  Ed still cocks his head and raises one eyebrow when I talk about these plans so let's just keep it to ourselves, shall we?

I picture the corn crib with a couple of adirondack chairs and maybe a table for my ever-present Diet Coke, vertical garden panels, Passion Flower and tangerine colored Trumpetvine, surrounded by my ever-growing collection of daylilies.  From here I can see for miles and miles and miles - maybe just watch the storms blossoming on the horizon.  Dream.  Draw.  Nap.

Be honest, isn't this the sweetest thing ever?

I have been thinking along the same lines and Randy has been looking for me. This past fall, I drive in to my Moms and what is sitting on the other side of her lane?!?! The top of a really big corn crib. Someone just gave it to my brother and he brought it in to raise chickens in. REALLY?! chickens? I told mom that it needed furniture, hanging plants, and a path, not Chickens!

Hi, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one. I am working on my cornzebo this weekend. We laid a sandstone floor yesterday...
