In The Pink Of Spring ...
“In the spring, at the end of the day,
you should smell like dirt.”
~ Margaret Atwood
~ born 1939
I spotted this pink bicycle left near a tree at the Springhouse of Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania as sunset knocked on the door of a picturesque April day. No doubt the bike’s owner was off exploring the beauty of the outdoors … in the pink of spring.
The log cabin close to the bicycle was part of Springhouse, the summer home of General Harry C. Trexler (1854-1933), an American industrialist who built a business empire in Allentown. The park is his namesake.
