A Simpler Life?? How Can It Be??

There's something about the Amish way of life that fascinates me. When we were in Iowa recentlly, we went off the highway onto an old country road. It was one Amish Farm after another. I had the opportunity several times to take pictures of buggies, but I chickened out because I don't think the Amish really want their pictures taken. I did capture some of the beautiful farmland and barns.

Wish I had some of the baked goodies about right now!

How American is this picture?

It was a beautiful spring day, and the laundry was hanging out to dry.

More laundry---I saw several Amish women outside washing in tubs. How can that be simpler?

When we went by this Amish house, the children were out playing. The reason you can only see a glimpse of the little girls in the wagon is because the 2 kids pulling it ran to their mom when we went by. I really felt bad--like we scared them. I didn't mean too.

You can see a buggy in the middle of this picture.

A buggy behind the tree.

I don't think this was Amish, but it was on the same road.
In case you noticed my new header--that is me screaming! I have hurt my knee and can't hardly walk. Don't know what I'm going to do about it. I keep thinking it will pop back into place. It has too, it's my good knee!
Better go for now,
Until next time,
