oh what a time i had in lancaster pennsylvania ! 
our first day out helen took us to a vegetable auction, if i had driven there i would of been their top buyer !
to alice and i here in the west, the prices were not just unbelievable but practically giving the goods away.
those beautiful mums were sold for no more than a 1.70 each and that was the top price, one had to buy a lot of 4-6 mums but paying for all 6 is still less than the price of one here in colorado !
and the pumpkins, these giant beauties were going for less than 10 dollars a piece, oh i could barely stand not being able to bid !
the best was watching all the amish families coming and going with their beautiful children in those wonderful buggies !
[ sorry no pictures of the amish at the auction ]
i would of been so content to just sit and watch the goings on all day.
i will be posting all about my lancaster adventure in the following days.
good to be home and catching up with blog land !
and it is cool here.....yahoo :)
