Amish Laundry Day

It must have been laundry day on this particular outing. I found 3 different Amish houses with laundry on the line

 Take notice to the upstairs windows on the front of the house. Do you see the curtains blowing in the breeze.  The windows were open from the top down.  It must have be awful hot in the house or they like it cold because it was about 25 degrees outside and there was about a 20 mile an hour wind blowing....it was cold. 

 this house even had some tobacco hanging outside the basement door along with the laundry.

the clothes were all twisted on this clothes line from the wind.

I also found some pretty, red, chippy paint barns. 



they must have replaced some boards and the red paint wasn't the same color.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

I'll bet those were some cold clothes! Nice scenic shots.
What pristine white houses and crisp laundry to go with ! Wish I could have seen myself !
Great photos!! Seems so funny to see clothes out hanging in the snow!

Oh wow! They must be pretty tough to have the windows open...or else they really like fresh air!

Love the red barn shots!
The blue clothing hanging on the lines in front of the white houses is so colorful. I remember my Mother hanging out clothes in the winter --they would come back in frozen!

I wonder why in the world they would have windows open on such a cold day? It's nice to have a clothesline near the house. Love the red barns. That last one is a beauty.

That laundry would be freeze-dried I would think. The more I see of the Amish the more they remind me growing up in the English countryside half a century ago. My father even had a go at growing his own tobacco at one time.

I love your Amish photos because I am very interested in this fantastic community. In my opinion Amish build big houses
These are such lovely pictures. So beautiful to see the colourful clothes hanging out to dry.
Great shots Felicia, they must have had the wood stove roaring to have to open the upper windows if it was that cold outside!

Ah, fresh air! :-)

Maybe they opened the window to air out the room for some reason? It must be cold in there though.. I love the red barn.. Great shots and post. Enjoy your week!
Sandi said…
HUGE houses...maybe because many generations live under one roof?

Amish life seems so blissful. I wonder what it is like to grow uo that way?
You find great settings. :)

Amish country is so interesting. Neat post!
Rose said…
I really do wonder about those open windows...just so strange in that type of weather. Beautiful shots...and very interesting.
Sandra said…
awesome photos of the laundry.. love these pics
LV said…
Some very pretty Amish homes. No doubt they like their cloths cool. Not me. I do not like the cold weather, especially snow.
Karen S. said…
Oh my goodness, as if the setting surrounding it all wasn't pretty enough, I just envy those shades of pretty blue! Lovely moments along the day!
zasypało.., super wyglądają te kolorowe ubrania, pozdrawiam

A very interesting post. I wonder if the Amish are having to do laundry several times a week. The barns are very good "finds" to shoot.
Kaya said…
That is a very interesting place. And you as a photographer made it even more wonderful.

Enjoyed tremendously these excellent photos!

Love these photos of the laundry and the barns. It's interesting to see all the indigo blue on the clothesline. The second barn is beautiful.
Mascha said…
Famous pictures! I like the blue clothing by white houses, it's so poetically... (I know, an Amish life is a hard life)
CountryMum said…
Beautiful rural scenery.

Hello,
Some years ago I seen a Harrison Ford film where the story was set in an Amish village. It's a quite interesting world for us. Liked this house and blue clothes are very spectacular.
Greetings from Hungary

Seems like the clothes would take quite a while to dry in that temperature! Beautiful barns!
Barb said…
I like the story laundry tells. Both first and last of the laundry shots have one red item.
So bright and colorful! Must have been giving the house a good 'airing out'. My Mom used to do that at least once a week - an old custom. Love that old chippy barn. Hope you are having a lovely week! xo Karen

Wonderful rural photos, Felicia!
Aimeecakes said…
Oooh i love the red barns! At least the washing probably dried fast with that wind...
Stephanie said…
You find some unique places to take photos of. Love seeing these homes and that barn.
Linda said…
Great pictures! The laundry looks gorgeous with all those deep blues!
I can remember laundry freezing on the line. Once it finally dries out, it's nice and soft.

Another great collection! Their wood stove must've been working too well. chilly! Thanks for linking this week!
