Yellow Butter ...


“This sky where we live is no place to lose your wings so love, love, love.”
                           ~ Hafiz

A beautiful Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly alights in the soft sweetness of a June evening along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) at Lehigh Gap.

In the shadow of the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, the Lehigh Gap in Slatington, Pennsylvania, is a crossroads where the Lehigh Gap Nature Center’s trails connect two historic trails – the Appalachian Trail and the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail). 

The Appalachian Trail, a foot path, follows the ridge on both sides of the Lehigh Gap, running 1,245 miles south to Georgia and 930 miles north to Maine. Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

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.”

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.

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.
