Little Buffalo & Reeds Gap

We visited the Butterfly Garden at Little Buffalo State Park.  A lady volunteer told us to look under the leaves of the milkweed and I found the cutest little monarch butterfly caterpillar. Then we traveled to Reeds Gap State Park to hike for a few miles.  The area where we parked was full of so…

Ricketts Glen State Park

This is one of our favorite trails to hike.  I loved that I found Blue Bottle Gentian along the trail, one of my favorite native wildflowers.  The Asters are a sure sign that fall is coming.

Summer Grass

I was sitting on the swing while my coffee brewed and something caught my eye. This beautiful grass was sparkling in the sunshine and I knew I had to take pictures of it. A simple moment of happiness. Full of light and wonder.


I’m so happy my sunflowers are blooming!  I’m currently working on updating my blog and making some improvements.  I will be re-posting a few things.  We are busy remodeling our bathroom this weekend.  Hopefully we will fit a walk in at some point. Sunny fell asleep while I was pulling weeds this morning.  He’s so…

Electric City Trolley Museum

Hubby and I visited the Electric City Trolley Museum in Scranton over the weekend.  We went on a trolley ride and through a 1 mile tunnel.  It was so much fun! We ended up stopping at Seven Tubs Natural Area on the way home from the trolley museum for a quick hike.

A Walk Along The Beach

  The sky always looks amazing here.  We actually found two hermit crabs.  I wanted to take one home but knew they would be happier here.

Flowers Inspire Happiness

I love picking up these floral arrangements from the farm stand.  I return the vases and sometimes get them back.  I love the combination of Zinnias and Thai Basil here. Sunny always checks them out while I take pictures. Happiness blooms from within. “Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine,…

Sunset Walk – Cape May

Yesterday we traveled to Cape May and it was the best day!  We did the usual.  Sat on the beach for a few hours, enjoyed my homemade pasta salad, had coffees & treats, and enjoyed the beauty around us. How many flowers can you count in this picture? 🙂 While walking the nature trail, we…

Butterflies Love Native Plants

Since my last blog post about watching butterflies, I have seen a new butterfly on the Boneset everyday.  I’m sure Boneset attracts more butterflies than a Butterfly Bush.  The native insects prefer native plants and even though Butterfly Bush looks really pretty, it’s not native. These little Skippers love the Lobelia. This is the last…

Silver Lake Nature Center

On Sunday, we adventured to Silver Lake Nature Center.  We enjoyed walking around the nature trails and looking at the flowers. “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.” -Henry David Thoreau I loved the beautiful paintings…
