Amish people live in New York State. Did you know that?
We drove by this field of Amish haystacks one day when an appointment with a picker left
us no time to stop. Edged in wildflowers and with a fabulous view, not to mention the funky
haystacks, the field begged us to come back another day.
A few weeks later, we were back in that same area. After a few wrong turns, there they
were, right where we left them, looking like wonky little cartoon characters marching in
I know that they have a purpose and that hard work is involved. But, as I sit here today, it is
easy to think that these haystacks, that have compelled me to go out of my way, are placed
here for the pleasure of those of us who don’t just drive by, but stop to really see.
