Road Trip -- Part 2

Here are a few more photos from my trip to Lancaster. My friend Sid took me to a little town called "Bird in Hand" and we did a little shopping.
They had a really good farmers market with just about everything for every taste bud!
No matter where I am, I can always spot a Golden, even a chocolate one!! We went across the street to a bakery, but not before I snapped a picture of this sign that gave me a little grin. For those who don't know, "Intercourse" is a name of a town east of Lancaster. I read that the signs for the town gets stolen quite a bit...Your own joke can go here...I'm not really one to make "off-color" jokes... Back on topic...Everything looked delicious in the bakery!!
We also visited nearby nurseries where garden fever really got me! All these plants and all the possibilities!!
There were tables with rows and rows of vegetable seedlings. But I resisted, and didn't buy anything even though I really wanted too...
At the next green house, the plants were literally talking to me, and I could no longer resist. With really (!!) reasonable prices, I bought several plants that are now residing on my front porch until I can get them planted.

After eating and shopping and laughing for two days it was time to come back to Virginia. As I crossed the Susquehanna River, I felt totally refreshed!! My visit to Lancaster gave me some perspective on my troubles and reminded me of the value of a good friend! I can't wait for my next trip! On my way home I go right past Gettysburg, so I took a quick drive through and snapped a few pictures that I will end this post with....

Thanks as always for stopping by my blog!! G'night!!

  4. What fun! Needless to say I love the greenhouse shots! I can't wait to plant - even though it's 18 degrees here this morning and planting is still a month or two away.

    Enjoy what's left of the week!

  5. Gettysburg National Park is amazing. As a life long "west-coaster", I needed to see this place above all others. Got to spend a whole day exploring and inserting that hollowed ground into my mind's eye. Shed a tear at the high water mark on Cemetery Ridge for all the American boys from both sides who fought so hard and died for what they believed was right. I'll never forget it.

    Two great posts Kim.
    Thanks
