Afternoon in Amish Country

It had been entirely too long since we ventured out to our nearby Amish settlement. Today was the day. Besides the usual shopping and visiting, we enjoyed these sights and scenes.

Hopefully, I was able to send some Amish simplicity and peacefulness your way. Have a great remainder of the week!

Lovely photos...a trip to Amish country sounds so nice now. We'll have to wait until it dries out and warms up a bit though...always a terrific place to spend the day!

Gorgeous photos, I am a little behind but had to comment on this post. I am also going to have to look up Sweet William, never heard of that and they looked gorgeous in the field. I am wanting to find some lovely flowers to plant on an edge of my property which does have some wild flowers but I think it needs more!!!
Have a wonderful day!!!
