Alexander Shaeffer Farm Thirty minutes due north from my house is the historic Alexander Shaeffer house and farm. The house was built in the mid-18th-century where the basement was once used to make whiskey. It is truly wonderful that these places still exist and serve as living history museums.

Searching for Spring Ephemerals Shenk's Ferry Wildflower Preserve

Conestoga, Pennsylvania

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”

― Rachel Carson

This same tunnel with the Enola Low Grade Line running above but taken by my husband's Great Grandfather, John A. Rineer, in 1919.

The Shenk's Ferry Hotel no longer stands.

Last Light on the First Day of Spring

“And the Spring arose on the garden fair,

Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;

And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast

Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.”

Maytown, PA “When our eyes are graced with wonder, the world reveals its wonders to us.

There are people who see only dullness in the world and that is because their eyes have already been dulled.

So much depends on how we look at things.

The quality of our looking determines what we come to see.”

Fort Delaware I never used the blog feature on my website and I thought for 2021 I better start. Some of my posts will be from photos I took in years past like these from a visit to Fort Delaware on Pea Patch Island in 2018. It's a really wonderful historical site just south of Wilmington, DE. It was a defense facility as well as a prison during the Civil War.

First Snow of the Season  

"I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show. "
- Andrew Wyeth

December 2020, first snow of the winter season. Always my favorite.

Longwood Gardens in January Anytime is a good time to visit Longwood Gardens but I find the dead of winter is especially rejuvenating.

The crowds of Christmastime are gone and the warm, tropical air in the conservatory makes you feel like you've taken a little vacation. 

All of these photos were taken with the Lensbaby 'Sweet 50". A perfect little lens to give that dreamy feel.
