Red Fox In The Late Summer Grass ...

“The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you.
And I shall love to listen to 
the wind in the wheat …”

                                      ~ 1943
                        ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery

 A beautiful red fox peers through the high grass of late summer on a September evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

It doesn’t get sweeter than this, seeing a beautiful white-tailed deer fawn tenderly nuzzling its mama doe on a gorgeous July evening in the park – a honey of a summer sight!

Majestic In The High Grass ...

"Be inspired by your journeys traveled,
and the ones yet to come."
                                ~ Sam Clark

Beautiful seven-point white-tailed deer buck
strikes a majestic pose while passing through 
the park as sunset sinks into dusk on a late
September evening.

Peace On The Hillside ...

"There will be peace in the valley for me, some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow
No trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me."

                     ~ "Peace In The Valley"
                   ~ Written by Thomas A. Dorsey
                                        ~ 1937
              ~ Recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                        ~ 1957 

Bright wild yellow mustard brushes a soft peace on a sun-filled May afternoon on a hillside of the Central Range of the Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, the only sounds the rustling of the spring breeze and the coo of a mourning dove. Perfect.

The color yellow is often associated with peace and happiness.

To me, this scene illustrates the still and serene beauty of God’s creation painted in that beautiful Gospel hymn “Peace in the Valley,” recorded by the great Elvis Presley in 1957.
