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.

Lush Summer ...




“I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all ...”

                        ~ Jack Kerouac
                                 ~ 1922-1969

All seasons have their own special beauty, yet I have to say I’ve always been a summer person.
And what more could anyone who loves summer ask for than a quintessential summer evening – verdant, lush and warm – just before sunset on the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania.

It’s the perfect, sun-dappled place for dreaming and remembrance … a place that seems to paintbrush the words of Jack Kerouac, “I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all …”

Sunset Dreams In The Mist ...


"Suddenly a mist fell from my eyes
and I knew the way I had to take."
                               ~ Edvard Grieg
                                             ~ 1843-1907

The evening mist rises from the pond
as if to kiss the sunset sky on a steamy spring evening at 
Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Color Tide ...


"First the tide rushes in
Plants a kiss on the shore ...
So I rush to your side
Like the incoming tide ..."
                              
                                     ~ "Ebb Tide"
                                                      ~ Carl Sigman, lyricist
                                                      ~ Robert Maxwell, composer
                                                                              ~ 1953

The morning sun sweeps and swirls the colors of
October like a dream in a crest of the
Little Lehigh Creek, Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Magnolia By Morning ...



"Despite the forecast, live like it's spring."
                                        ~ Lilly Pulitzer
                                                  ~ 1931-2013

The sunlight of an April morning whispers softly
as a dream around the magnolia tree at my favorite
spot at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Dreamer Of Dreams ...


"We are the music makers,
and we are the
dreamers of dreams ..."
             ~ Arthur O'Shaughnessy
                         (1844-1881)

A dream like view of a beautiful magnolia bud
on an April day at Trexler Memorial Park,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

A Journey Begins ...


"He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star."
                                                             ~ William Blake

Awash in the December sunlight, a leaf reflects as it begins its journey
down the Jordan Creek at Wehr's Covered Bridge Park,
Orefield, Pennsylvania.
