Birds feast in Pennsylvania

Today we enjoyed an uncrowded Saturday in the Amish countryside not far from Lancaster, PA, where the towns have names like Bird-in-Hand, Paradise, Intercourse.... From many neat farm houses, clothes are hung on high pully lines, some with all theblue trousers, then white shirts as neat as their rows of crops.
My daughter-in-law Betsy and her friend Nancy and I watched an Amish farmer till a long row with his team of horses, turning over the lovely dark soil, and in so doing, unearthing a feast that beckoned an enormous flock of birds. It was amazing to see!
