Wildflower Walk – April 21st

I wanted to post the rest of the pictures from Sunday’s walk.  I’ve been loving the different shades of blue, purple, & pink Virginia Blue Bells.  I’m so happy National Wildflower Week is Coming up the first week of May.  Today we actually visited Shenk’s Ferry again and the sun was out so it was…

Madison Street

Happy Easter🌼 Today Steve and I celebrated Easter by picking up coffees and going for a walk.  We swung by Madison Street in Reading, PA because I have been wanting a picture of the beautiful flowering tree tunnel there.  We used to live in Reading and I could have easily walked here to take pictures…

Early Spring Garden

I started working on the garden today.  I pulled some weeds and tidied things up a bit.  I’m looking forward to the hummingbirds and cat birds arriving soon.  They are usually here by April 25th. I decided on yellow and red flowers for the two pots on the front porch. I love to see the…

Hershey Gardens

On Sunday, Steve and I visited Hershey Gardens.  We walked through the butterfly atrium and saw so many beautiful exotic butterflies. Then we walked around outside and saw daffodils, tulips, hyacinth, and more. I love this yellow magnolia tree.  I want to plant one in my yard! Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have the…

Shenk’s Ferry is located…

One of my Favorite Wildflowers

This is one of my favorite native wildflowers because I saw these beauties while camping last Spring.  It was fun finding them and taking photos.  I love the idea of focussing on experiences and not on things so much. Often when I look at photos I’ve taken over the years, I enjoy reminiscing about that…

Tofu Recipes and Cat Pictures

Betty Boop’s Adventure

Today Betty Boop went outside and enjoyed all of her favorite things to do.  All winter long she has been waiting for this day.  Everytime we let her out when it was cold, she would come right back inside.  Well it was warm out today so she climbed a tree, walked across the logs, visited…
