Greenhouses all around Mirror lake B&B

Rolling Acres is right around the corner from Mirror lake and has many nice annuals and perennials
Nature's Lane is an Amish greenhouse just out of Shipshewana.

The Clear Spring Produce Auction.

I love auctions!!

Last Tuesday I made my rounds to many of the greenhouses that are nearby. Looking at all the new flowers and grasses. Wednesday I went back and bought 10 flats of annuals, grasses and other 4in potted annuals. But today I went to the produce auction they are on Tuesday, Thursdays and some Fridays as well. I bought 14 potted baskets, 8 flats of flowers and 15 potted mums (4" pot) for $138.00. I think that is great, now the weather has to get warmer and drier before I can start planting. Happy day!!

Our new pony Susie and her cart!!

This is all very new to me I have never driven a pony before. Elsie my Amish friend helped me one day. But I think she was more nervous then I was. But maybe she knew to be afraid and I didn't. Every time we go out things just get better and better!!
This is our newest addition her name is Susie. She is 10 years old and is 11 hands high she is a sweet heart. This is our first day hitched and yes I had some learning to do. Elsie (my Amish friend) gave me an A+ in harnessing.

Susie still has to loose some winter hair. I just got her and brought her home March 28 . Needs some T.L.C. just wait!!

Our first trip back to the cabin April 29 and this is our 3rd time hitched. What fun it felt good things went well.

Susie stands like a soldier has I set up the camera. What a nice buggy ride to the woods and back to the barn.

They are dairy and crop farmers we live on a 150 acre farm in northeastern Indiana and we are surrounded by Amish farmers.I enjoy working in my garden or one of my flower beds. Jed and I were both 10 year 4-her's and so were all three of the kids. Our favorites were showing sheep and contest horses we went to MANY show. I also enjoy riding horses we are lucky to have many trails through the woods or work in an arena. We enjoy the rustic, private and peaceful atmosphere, paddle boat rides, fishing, setting around the campfire and watching beautiful sun sets on Mirror Lake. Coming to Mirror lake is more then a destination.... it’s an awaking a life style almost forgotten.
