Peace Valley Park, No. 10, Part 1

This past Tuesday morning, I went for an extended hike at Peace Valley Park near Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It was a mostly cloudy morning but nevertheless I was rewarded with a colorful expression of nature that was restorative to my being.

For most of these colorful expressions of nature, I do not have a name. But at the end, I have a photo for your taste buds. :)







A wild strawberry!

The people who owned my house before the people who owned it before me were (apparently) master gardeners. Consequently, I have strawberries that grow as ground cover in the spring to early summer in my front yard EVERY YEAR! So cute. They totally make me smile.

Deals On Wheels said...

Oh, and the answer is YES. Yes, you can eat wild strawberries, although they don't really taste like anything...

Hi, san nakji. I haven't eaten one in a long while. But I use to recall them as being special treats.

Thanks, sage. Glad you like the photos.

Thanks, wendy c. Glad you enjoyed browsing them.

Hi, deals on wheels. Strawberries are wonderful tasty fruits. With them in your front lawn, you are blessed.

Thanks, mreddie. Their creator must have a vivid imaginations to have made nature so diverse and beautiful.

Ah, cergie. A couple of them I have some local names. One is a wild carrot and I think another is a horse nettle. Can you guess which are which?

Thanks, samrina. I enjoy being out in nature and taking pictures.

Hello Tim, how are you? With the last picture you made me remember. My father has many of these little plants, sorry for don't know the right name in English but I hope you understand me, in his house in his garden. If I remember I will take a pic to you see. But as it's not cold enough here the strawberries aren't ready yet.
See you soon.

Cergie said...

Wild carrot ? I recognise just that flower here. In France we have carottes sauvages or rather *ombelliferes*. Ombelle = ombrelle -> sunshade. I cannot do the difference between wild carrot and hemlock which is a dangerous poison ! Wild carrot is very difficult to take and your picture is neat. Bravo ! But mine is perhaps neat on another thing ?

Cergie said...

Shame ! Not "carrotte" but "carotte" !!!

I love them all, Tim, but especially the purple one. Love the DOF on it. We get wild strawberries in our yard and from time to time I'll eat a couple, just to say I did it. Not much flavor but at least they're edible :)

What a beautiful life we have :-)

Tim Rice said...

Gracias, coral. La belleza de la naturaleza está fuera de la descriptión. Muchos saludos.

Hi, aluadacbs. Glad my post could bring back a good memory. I am doing well; hope you are also.

Thanks, cergie. I'm glad you appreciate the pictue. You do excellent photos, too.

Thanks, ginnie. I thought that purple wildflower stood out, too. As for the wild strawberry, if I get the chance, maybe I'll have to try one again to see if your and other people's description of it as bland is correct for me. It's not so in my memory.

Hi, lynn. Yes, we do have a beautiful life as long as we don't make it ugly.
