Along the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek, No. 1, Spring Views

Last Friday in the late afternoon and early evening, I did some hiking along the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek near Perkasie outside of Lenape Park. It was a beautiful sunny, warm evening. I didn't want to leave when it was time to go home.

You seem to do alot of fun nature stuff, and that's a good thing. I've got to do more....after a day's work I just want to sit and relax. Maybe I'll stop after work and go for a hike.

Looks like a beautiful place!

Thanks, san nakji. Spring though is arriving in starts and fits. This morning I was out hiking and needed to wear both a sweatshirt and a windbreaker. My hands even felt close to freezing early on.

Thanks, trailady. I thought the bird photos were neat, too.

Thanks, minka. Glad you enjoyed it; I enjoy being outdoors in nature and photographing it.

Thanks,zanne. For me, hiking is part of my relaxation time. But each of us need approach our actitivities according to who we are. That's what makes the world and our blogs so fascinating in so many respects.

Thanks, kristi. It is a beautiful area. Thanks for dropping by.

I like the bluebird and the one of the creek--I'm always drawn to flowing water.

Tai said...

oh, what lovely photos!

Thanks for sharing a little part of your world!

Thanks, sage. When I first saw the bluebird, its blueness was almost startling to me in a very satisfying way. Running water always pulls on me, too.

Thanks, tai. I enjoy sharing some of my world with others and enjoy others sharing theirs with me. It's mutual. :)

Hey, Tim. I think those wildfloweres in your first photo are the same in my post today! Do they have a name besides "wildflowers?"

Tim Rice said...

Hi, ginnie. At this time, I do not know what those blue wildflowers are called. Does anyone else know?
