Blooms For Two ...



“Just as the bird sings or the butterfly soars, because it is his natural characteristic, so the artist works.”
                     ~ Alma Gluck
                                    ~ 1884-1938

A pair of white butterflies sip nectar on a sweet summer afternoon in late August at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Spring With A Cherry On Top ...



“Came the spring with all its splendor,
All its birds and blossoms,
All its flowers and leaves and grasses.”
                   ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
                                ~ 1807-1882
An artistic view of delightful cherry blossoms that top off an April afternoon with the spirit of spring on North Ott Street near Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania, where Kwanzan Cherry Trees line the city with splendor with their beautiful but fleeting pink canvas.

There are 46 Japanese Flowering Cherry Trees in the vicinity. The original trees date to the late 1950s and early 1960s.

Savoring In Springtime ...



              “Carpe Diem !”
                  ~ Carpe diem is a Latin aphorism, usually translated “seize the day,” taken from book one of the Roman poet Horace’s work “Odes” (23 BC)

It’s carpe diem for this squirrel as it seizes the day and savors a springtime evening in early June at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
