There are always interesting sights in Amish country, but this is one of my seasonal favorites.

  4. Part of the state song for Delaware says, "...where the wheat fields break and billow, in the peaceful land of Kent..." Your photos are the exact picture I've had in my head of those words since I learned them in fourth grade and every time I taught it to my own fourth graders! It's like you reached into my head and took the photo!

  5. Very neat. The only Amish country I've been through was once when we drove to the Ozarks from Nebraska. I do remember thinking how pretty and peaceful it was.

  7. Those pictures take me back a few decades when I worked on my grandparents' farm. Most of the work involved baling, loading and stacking hay. We'd work from sunup to sundown, for the princely sum of $8/day. (Plus room and board. And you couldn't put a price on Gramma's cooking.)
