Here's Looking At You, Kid ...

“Here’s looking at you kid …”
       ~  Humphrey Bogart to Ingrid Bergman
 in the 1942 classic film “Casablanca”

A beautiful white-tailed deer button buck turns to glance across the Jordan Creek as if to say “Here’s looking at you, kid” before leaving to continue his trek through the Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania on a late May evening.

Where The Honeysuckle Blooms ...

“What a pity flowers can utter no sound! A singing rose, a whispering violet, a murmuring honeysuckle – oh what a rare and exquisite miracle would these be!”
               ~ Henry Ward Beecher
                  ~ 1813-1877
 I love the heady perfume of Japanese Honeysuckle in bloom! I captured this shot in the late day sun of May at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

When the day draws to a close, the scent of honeysuckle joins with the natural chorus of spring peepers and the call of the whip-poor-will for spring perfection!

Japanese honeysuckle flowers are edible to humans and appreciated for their sweet-tasting nectar. The flowers can also be a significant source of food for deer, rabbits, hummingbirds, and other wildlife.

Let It Breathe ...

“Awake, my dear. Be kind to your sleeping heart. Take it out into the vast, fields of Light, And let it breathe.”
                              ~ Hafiz
Bright wild yellow mustard brushes a sweep of color on a sunny and peaceful May afternoon on a hillside of the Central Range of Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, awakening the landscape from the gray winter to the happiness of spring.

The color yellow is often associated with peace and happiness.
