Softly Comes The Winter ...

" The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."
                                   ~ Robert Frost

The springhouse in Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania 
isn't exactly in the woods but looks like it could be on this
December afternoon. 
This log cabin was part of the summer estate of General Harry C. Trexler
(1854-1933), an American industrialist who built a business empire
in Allentown. The park is his namesake. 

A Taste of Snow

This male mallard duck seems to taste some December snow with the seeds he ate
atop one of the small bridges at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
