I Would Like You To Meet My Neighbors

 
 She is so sweet. 
She and her friends live just down the street in the buttercup pasture.

 
This is my hard working neighbor plowing the fields for planting.

 
This is tobacco planted in the field. 
Lots of tobacco is grown in Lancaster County.

 
 Many buggy's are driven here instead of cars. 
The Amish and the Mennonite.

 
The Mennonite drive black carriages and the Amish drive gray carriages.

 
They do not call them buggy's (we do, the English)
Got to get the lingo right.
They call them carriages, so says my Amish friend.

 
The children who cannot fit in the carriage ride their bike behind.
The whole family gets to their destination one way or another.

 
This is George.  He is all around the neighborhood in his green wagon.

 
Children walking to school by our house each morning.

 
One of many horses living near by.

 
Enjoy your Spring, wherever you are.

When I saw the first pictures, I was going to say I had the same neighbours... But no Amish carriages here, that was so "back to the past". I loved those pictures!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Yes, I did hand paint the stripes, and diamonds on the walls. My husband helped by drawing the lines first. I did try to use tape many years ago, but found the paint bled, so I decided to do it myself. I have a friend whom lives in Sinking Springs and on one of my visits to her home we went antiquing in Lancaster County. Beautiful place you live in. Alaina
