A weekend in the country/ a no clothes post

This post has absolutely no clothes in it..........Bet ya thought I was going to be streaking across a field.......If I was I'd have to also be playing a banjo
This past weekend I spent several days with my family in central Indiana.  My parents have a very nice home wayyyyyyyy out in the country.
I went Thursday morning in order to help my Mom prepare for my nephew's graduation party on Saturday.
I will say I worked my chunky, little, butt off but the results were well worth it.
When I go there it is a little bit of culture shock.  They definitely have a different mindset.  I won't go into it here but sometimes I hear the faint sound of banjos in the background.  And, I got admonished by my Dad for putting condiments in ramekins.  He said I was being wasteful and trying to citify (is that even a word) them.  God help me!
I did get to go off on one little adventure.  My cousin and good friend took me to an Amish flower auction.  I didn't buy much just 12 hanging baskets, 4 pots of ornamental grass, two huge planters of geraniums and 4 pots of sweet william.  I also bought the Man an Amish, handmade, straw, hat.  I knew where all of my purchases were going to land.  Between my home and the little cabin I have plenty of flower space.  But then two days later my husband brought home a flat of 4" geraniums and a flat of dahlias.........Now I've got issues.  So, I guess this weekend it's plant 'em if you got 'em!  So I'll be a planting and drinking wine...remember it's never work if you can drink wine while you are doing it!
I am posting a few pictures......Just for fun.

The way the Amish roll!

Can't you just pee in your pants over these baskets?
Have a good weekend!
