Green Lane Nature Hike, No. 1, part 2, Meadow & Wood's Edge

This is a continuation of my hike on Labor Day at Green Lane Reservoir Park near Green Lane, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The first part was mostly in the forest along or near the reservoir; this part was more in the meadows and wood's edge. I think my favorite photo here is the close-up of the clover flower. But all the pictures are needed to begin to sense the full feel of this section of the park - a place to wander at will and marvel at God's creation.

In the last picture, do you see the two eyes looking out of the woods towards the flower or me? ;)

I can't wait to take my new camera out and take some pictures of nature.....those are beautiful.... it sure adds to a story to have pictures to go with it, don't it?

That last one is a little spooky. For us city folk, which is the clover flower?

Hi, judypatooote. Thanks, picture of nature often reach out and touch our souls.

Hi, murf. Yes, I can see how one might interpret that last picture as a bit spooky. The clover flower is the second picture from the top.

Actually, that's pretty creepy! I am thinking werewolf... waiting for a fullmoon! Last night was a full moon! Hope you're ok ;o)

Tim, Kevin admitted today that he experiences nature vicarously through your photos and my writings... I think Murf is doing the same! Looks like you had a nice hike there.

Emily said...

Cergie said...

Ouais ! A big cat ! waiting for your lunch.

The eyes look like muchu's ones when he (male)was trying to enter into the kitchen because it was smelling roasted chicken !
Notice how sad he was when he understood he will not succeed !

Sage - You think correctly. Compared to you guys, I feel like 'The Girl In A Bubble'.

Paige said...

I like 'em all. But the one with the tiny white flowers is awesome... they are floating
Happy Weekend

Hi, san nakji. I like your imagination. The picture has that potential for creepyness.

Thanks, sage. It was a good hike and lots of different landscapes. And I'm glad if other people can experience nature through our blogs. Hopefully, at some point, it'll encourage them to go explore it in their vacinities for themselves as well.

Thanks, emily. I enjoyed stopping by your blog as well.

Hi, jazzy. You're welcome to come for a walk with me. :) Visit my blog some more and I'll take you on some more walks.

Hi, cergie. Ah, poor machu. You denied him his delight. ;) I like your imagination, too, in interpreting that last picture.

Hi, murf. You don't have to remain a girl in a bubble if you don't want to.

Thanks, paige. Those white flowers are pretty.

Thanks, darilyn. Stop by for that cup of serenity anytime. I'm always glad when my blog can benefit others.

Tim, is that an invite to go walking with you in PA sometime? ;-)

Cergie said...

Why "imagination" ? You did not have a lunch that day ? Poor you !

Charley said...

Awesome photos! I too love to hike, but never think to take my camera with me when I go! You've inspired me.

Tim Rice said...

Hi, murf. If you would like it to be an invitation, it is. Just be sure to schedule it ahead of time with me. My schedule often gets filled up. :)

Hi, cergie. Maybe it's nothing; but I just meant your imagination to see cat's eyes in my pictures. It could be seen as eyes of probably many different creatures.

Hi, samrina. Thanks for coming by.

Thanks, charley. Hiking with or without a camera can be a real joy. For some a camera adds to the experience; for others it detracts from the experience.

Looks like a great location for a hike - God's creation was really showing off. The little inset flower was a nice touch. That does look eyes back in the shadow. ec

Ava said...

Those pictures just make me want to get up right now and go for a nature walk! Very inspiring. Thanks for sharing them.

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, mreddie. Glad you enjoyed my hike. God's creation is terrific.

Thanks, ava. Nature walks in my opinion are one of God's best gift to human beings.

I'll just call this the scenic route. I think every route you take is probably scenic!

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, ginnie. It is scenic, isn't it?
