My Thoughts About One of My Favorite Places--Northeastern Indiana's Amish Country

Favorite Facebook Photos from 2021

I post a lot of photos on my Amish Indiana facebook page that don't make it to this blog...  Here are a few of my favorites from the last year:

Belgian horses continue to fascinate me, with their raw power and their beauty.  Although tractors are replacing Belgians for pulling things on the road, it's still nearly all Belgians in the fields.

This gathering of buggies is outside an Amish wedding.  There are many hundreds of guests over the course of the day; nearly 1,000 people are typically involved in one way or another.

This garden tiller is still in use.  I took this photo at the home of one of my friends.  Most Amish homes include a produce garden.  This particular friend also has a cutting garden for flowers.

Here I am at Glicks, my favorite Amish junkyard!  As usual, I am looking for "garden decor" accompanied by my pupper, Velcro.

This is something I saw that made me think, "Like father, like son."

This particular "Pennsylvania clothesline," the longest one I know of, belongs to a friend of mine.  I love standing on her special laundry-hanging balcony and taking pictures of it.

This is a group of Amish volunteers who just completed a day of putting a new roof on a nearby Protestant church.  Here the men from both churches are stopping to pray before eating together afterwards.  

A sunset on the "cheese house road" (250 N) near my home, between Shipshewana and Middlebury.

My husband took this one.  I never get tired of the blue and the green of a Midwest summer day.

This is a special display in front of a home where a wedding was about to take place.  This isn't a typical Amish buggy, but it makes a lovely greeting for the wedding guests.

I just realized I never did a post like this for 2020!  I'll do that one soon.
