Perkiomen Watershed

This past Saturday my wife and I went for a short hike along the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek at the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy Headquarters near Schwenksville, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. With dressing up warm, it was a good day for a hike.

Tell me what you see.
Let your imagination run wild.

Jet lines in the sky

A fallen moss-covered log

A white and gray barronness

A lone dancing evergreen

Selected scenes from Thanksgiving Day with my wife's family

Thanksgiving Day my wife and I spent with her family in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. After the meal some of us went for a walk to a nearby playground and small park. All except the last picture were taken there. It was a great way to spend the afternoon after having a delicious and sumptuous meal.

Thanksgiving Dinner on My Side

The Sunday after Thanksgiving we had our gathering on my side of the family. It was an excellent day of food, fun, and fellowship catching up with one another. Below are some photos from that day.

An Early November Visit to Otts Greenhouses

Back in early November I visited Otts Greenhouses near Schwenksville, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Its a large greenhouse operation that I like to visit every once in a while. And with it being rather wintery of recent I thought these flowers would brighten up the scene. :)

Thanksgiving Day Walk

I spent Thanksgiving day with my wife's family. A few of us took a walk to a park in Quakertown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The afternoon was mostly cloudy with the sun coming out a bit after a windy light rain came through. Below are some views from our walk.
