RE: Tree Tuesday Landscapes

Howdy redheadpei! What wonderful photos, I love these. We don't have any color changes in the trees in this part of Texas, they stay green all year round. Do you have many Amish up in PEI?

Sort:  

The changes in nature made by the different seasons are nice Cowboy. I don’t care too much for the cold of winter but it makes me appreciate the other three seasons.😀

I’m not sure how many Amish families are on PEI but I will guess about 25. The whole Island has only a population of 150,000 people.

Thanks for the lovely comments on the photos.😊

Howdy redheadpei and happy weekend to you and yours! The photos of the Amish in the winter time make me cold and shivery! I don't think they have very good heaters in those buggies. 25 families...do you know if they all live in the same community like they do in the States?

Cowboy, I doubt if they have heaters in the buggies, just a heavy blanket. They seem to try to live close to each other in certain areas but families are in different parts of the Island and have their own farms.

I've always been fascinated by them. I know they have their issues and lots of people don't like the way they treat their women but they have many good aspects too and I think overall they are a great addition to a community, state or country. Most of them hate having their photos taken though. lol.

I don’t think they believe in taking their picture...sin of vanity I would guess. Although I know nothing of their religious beliefs.

Not much said about them in the community. You know how nice we Canadians are. 😆

I know one man is a good blacksmith and others have been hired for certain building jobs. They seem to be hard working and have a bakery and a store in one area.

Howdy redheadpei! How interesting. Yes, the Amish are extremely hard working. and many are hard drinking too. lol. They make their own beer and wine and man is it good! That store would probably be my favorite. We had one in Ohio because of a huge Amish community up there and it was our favorite grocery store.

Yes they are a hard working people. Their homes and farms always so well cared and neat looking.

I heard that about the Amish men liking their spirits. I hope the women get to have some too. 😀

Howdy redheadpei and Merry Christmas! I hope you all are doing great up there, is it cold? It HAS to be. lol. It will be 70 and sunny here tomorrow.
