Today was just too pretty not to take advantage of the cooler temperatures so my friend and I headed to Southern Maryland on a day trip. We always enjoy seeing the Amish farms in St. Mary's and Charles counties. Of course, I had to stop at a few thrift shops along the way and this buggy was parked outside one of them. Two lovely Amish ladies were "thrifting" too! I couldn't help but notice that their aprons were held together in the back with straight pins. I've read that they do not use buttons because they are too decorative.
I loved this antique/gift shop. It was packed with beautiful things! In the side yard was a small pond full of waterlilies. I've never seen these gorgeous flowers up close. Aren't they breathtaking?
We bought fresh corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, and beets from an Amish vegetable stand for dinner when we got home.
