After The April Rain ...


“Our spring has come at last with the soft laughter of April suns and shadow of April showers.” 
                      ~ Byron Caldwell Smith
After soaring temperatures into the 80s in mid-April spurred it to bloom, my favorite pink magnolia tree still looks beautiful just after a cold spring rain at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

In The Cold Spring Rain ...



“…I’ll go walking through
With the rain in my shoes
Searchin’ for you 
In the cold Kentucky rain …”
                    ~ “Kentucky Rain”
              ~ written by Eddie Rabbitt & Dick Heard
     ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                                ~ 1970

With a cold spring rain falling lightly on a chilly April afternoon, a man soaks in the quiet beauty as he walks in Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania in this artistic interpretation.

Raining Retro ...


"There's a certain nostalgia and romance in a place you left."
                                   ~ author David Guterson, born 1956

Diners ... a favorite of locals and weary travelers, sharing their
joys and sorrows over a steaming cup of coffee. Diners are
a comforting haven, a slice of nostalgia to go with that slice
of cherry pie, especially on a rainy evening.

Here, the Hamilton Family Restaurant (known as the "Ham Fam"),
a '50s era landmark in the West End of Allentown, Pennsylvania, beams
it's retro neon welcome during a rainy September twilight.
