Daisies Don't Tell ...



   “If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for a moment.”
                         ~ Georgia O'Keeffe
                                    ~ 1887-1986
 The popular 1950s catchphrase says “Daisies Don’t Tell,”  but this lone wild daisy along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail), Slatington, Pennsylvania speaks of spring with its sweet and simple beauty on a May afternoon.

Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

Slatington, established in 1864, is the designated Blackboard Capital of America.

Background texture by Jai Johnson added for artistic effect.

Canvassing Cherry Blossom Row ...



“Filling a space in a beautiful way – that is what art means to me.”
                             ~ Georgia O’Keeffe
                                       ~ 1887-1996
Kwanzan Cherry Trees line the city with beauty in April on North Ott Street near Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania as afternoon traffic flows by their beautiful but fleeting pink canvas.

There are 46 Japanese Flowering Cherry Trees in the vicinity. The original trees date to the late 1950s and early 1960s.
