All Too Soon ...




“All too soon we had to part
The moment you had touched my heart
And with you went my dream
All too soon …

You should know as well as I
Our love deserves another try
For you whispered goodbye
All too soon
Too soon”
                     ~ “All Too Soon”
            ~ 1940 song composed
 by Duke Ellington, lyrics by Carl Sigman,
     recorded by other artists including
               Ella Fitzgerald

After rare warm February temperatures, this daffodil bloomed all too soon at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania, then whispers goodbye as it wilts all too soon after a March snowfall.

Daffodil, Jonquil, Narcissus … whatever name you choose, it’s beauty is gone all too soon about a week before spring is set to bloom.

Daisies Don't Tell ...



   “If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for a moment.”
                         ~ Georgia O'Keeffe
                                    ~ 1887-1986
 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.
