Thank you! I do nothing for the hydrangea. It sat and sulked for about 2-3 years before it finally decided to take off, and then it just ran up the side of the barn. I prune it pretty severely in the spring to keep it roughly in the shape of a tree and to also keep it from growing between the roof material and the framing. I think it would happily take over the entire barn if I let it. Turns a nice soft yellow in the fall before dropping its leaves.

I love your barn too! I never did find the stain slash/finish we talked about though I looked everywhere I could think of. I must have used it all. Great picture! Smiling

Thanks for looking Susie. This north side is good, it is all repurposed barn boards. The west side of the barn, however, has a large section of new cedar without the red fade to it. If I can figure out a fairly easy way to add some color to that, it would be great. So far everything I've found online is multi-steps and would be rather time consuming and expensive. For the most part, just being weathered gray is fine but if I could find an easy way to add some red highlights here and there without looking contrived, I'd sure like to try. Or, I suppose I can keep a lookout for fallen down barns and see if I can purchase the boards - that's essentially how we came across this wood.

Thanks @pirl it is time again to get on a ladder and prune that monster! If I don't keep after it, it would cover the entire barn.
