In the last half a dozen years, we have gone to the Lancaster's Symphony New Year's Eve concert. The conductor always prefaces and concludes the evening with the phrase, "only in Lancaster." Today on this Fourth of July weekend, I enjoyed another "only in Lancaster" privilege. I picked a table arrangement of zinnias, daisies, and plumes for only $3.00 from an Amish garden.
The Amish farm is over the covered bridge, around the corner, and up hill from our house. A mule drawn wagon passes us as we climb the last elevation before reaching the picture-perfect cutting garden.
This Fourth of July, I hope you each celebrate the unique brand of freedom we enjoy only in the United States of America.
