Beverly Lewis on Lancaster County, PA.

Have you ever been to Lancaster County, Pa?  If not do yourself a favor and visit.  It always takes me back in time.  Memories of the grandparents and their simple farming life.  Beauty that is what you will see.  The growing green crops, wheat, gorgeous homes grandeur in size and yet so very simple and clean.  Clothes hanging on the lines in their colors.  I especially love the quilts hanging.  So very beautiful!
