Summer Supper ...

“A forest bird never wants a cage.”
                 ~ Henrik Ibsen
                        ~ 1828-1906

A male American goldfinch - also known as a wild canary - and a female house finch share a birdfeeder as they enjoy a summer supper on a beautiful August evening at Lehigh Gap Nature Center.

In the shadow of the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, the Lehigh Gap in Slatington, Pennsylvania, is a crossroads where the Lehigh Gap Nature Center’s trails connect two historic trails – the Appalachian Trail and the Delaware and Lehigh Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail). 

The Appalachian Trail, a foot path, follows the ridge on both sides of the Lehigh Gap, running 1,245 miles south to Georgia and 930 miles north to Maine. Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

The sweet morning light of summer dances and shimmers into
beautiful bokeh around a buddleia flower on the banks of the
Jordan Creek at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania ...
the magic of ordinary days.

The Last Teardrop ...

"And I know you think that I'll be ...
Crying you a river that winds and winds and winds
Oh but baby I'm down to my last teardrop this time."
                                                   ~ "Down To My Last Teardrop"
                                                                ~ Written by Paul Davis 
                                                                       ~ Recorded by Tanya Tucker
                                                                                                 ~ 1991
