The Lamp Post

Lamp Post in a park in Central Pennsylvania

I remember reading the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis as a child.  This lamppost reminded me of the one that plays a part in at least two of those books.

Remembering Spring

Remembering Spring

This picture was taken on the first warm day of spring in Central Pennsylvania.  I love water and I love the woods, so this was an awesome combination.  Also, I spent hundreds of hours playing in streams like this one while growing up.

Phlox Drummondii

Phlox Drummondii - beautiful purple and white flowers

I found this beauty outside the Titusville station of the Oil Creek and Titusville Railroad.  Imagine my surprise to find such a beautiful flower with my (more or less) name.

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the flowers in my neighbors’ yards this year.  This is one of the more notable ones.

Rural Pennsylvania Barn

One of the many old barns that dot the Pennsylvania countryside
This photo came from a Sunday afternoon drive on the first warm Sunday of Spring.  I enjoy the wide range of color and style that can be demonstrated in the barns dotting the Pennsylvania countryside.

beautiful yellow and white daffodil

The very best of color coordination comes from nature.  I’m loving the beautiful colors of spring in Central Pennsylvania.

Beautiful Penns Creek

peaceful creek on a warm spring afternoon
I don’t know if there is anything I find quite so peaceful as a wide portion of a stream full from winter snows.  Here you can see the beginnings of green in the grass, but the more colorful budding on the trees has yet to begin.  I also like the reflections.

I thought I would share this picture from January as a last farewell (for this year at least) to winter.

As spring arrives, the ducks begin to swim contentedly on the local ponds.

Serenity–The Calm Before The Spring

Winter creek scene with a fallen log and snow
I was at a wedding last weekend and of course snapped as many pictures as I could.  I followed the wedding party to a nearby state park for outdoor pictures.  As I left, I pulled over and took a couple of shots back along the stream that ran along side the road.  This is one of them.
