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.

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 …”

"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
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.
