Pennypacker Mills, No. 4, Landscapes

This afternoon, I allowed myself to lose myself in nature spending much time at Pennypacker Mills near Schwenksville, Pennsylvania. It was a changeable afternoon from clouds to sun to sprinkles. But it was just me loose in nature.

Roots along the Perkiomen Creek

Wildflowers in the Woods

Buttercups in the Meadow

Mustard Plants in the Meadow

The Meadow - Another Angle

Studying the Hills

Those pictures are very lovely. It's kind of funny, but even though you are located clear across the country from me, a lot of the landscape looks similar to the California foothills before everything turns brown.

I can almost hear the "silence" in these pics. So peaceful. Thank you for sharing.

Buttercups, in French: " boutons d'or" (gold buttons), so beautiful flower in the campaign, but terrible in a garden.
Kinders, here, put that on the nose each other and then, laughing: " you love too much butter, your nose is yellow !".
Do you do so in Pennsylvania ?

The first photo of the roots is amazing. You wouldn't believe it unless you saw it!

Tai said...

Your pictures are so transporting Tim.

lovely pics....The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.

Hi, hick. Thanks for coming by. Interesting observation about similiarities between here and there.

Hi, darilyn. It is a very peaceful place to go. I think much of it is a little known treasure. I love it that way. ;)

Hi, cergie. Thanks for your observations and sharing a little of the customs in France regarding the buttercup. I don't think my circle of friends did that with buttercups though it doesn't sound completely foreign to me either.

Thanks, samrina. Glad you enjoyed the pictures.

Thanks, kristi. It was really green probably in part due to the large amount of rain in the past several days.

Hi, ginnie. Those roots are impressive. Wait till I show you another impressive tree in a nearby place - not for the roots but...

Thanks, tai. In this post that was part of my objective. Sounds like I may have succeeded.

Hi, asma. You're right. Nature does have a way of ministering to one's soul and sense of being.

I love the roots especially, but all those pictures are lovely.

Thanks, spidergirl. You're not the only one that fascinated by the roots. :)
