An Afternoon hike on the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek

Yesterday afternoon I went hiking along the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek at the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy Headquarters near Schwenksville, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day with the high in the seventies degrees Fahrenheit. Some of the photos are not quite as good as some times due to taking the hike in the afternoon rather than early morning or late afternoon/evening. But they still announce "Spring is here!" :)


Some beautiful white wildflowers larger than life

Aaah, winter must be finally over. I guess that trip to Tahiti will have to wait. ;-)

Very nice. Our wild flowers have been in bloom, some are dying back already.

Hi, murf. You don't get off that easily! Sage and I still hold you to your promise. ;)

Thanks, talj. It was a lovely walk. :)

Thanks, paige. It has been an unusually cold April for us here in Southeastern Pennsylvania except for the past couple days. Spring was late coming here.

Hi, sage. I agree. :)

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, charley pitchford. You are welcome here anytime. :)

Thanks, moi. The past few days have been wonderful spring-like here in the 70s and 80s; now it's suppose to go back into the 60s for the foreseeable future which isn't bad just not as nice as the 70s. :)

Tim Rice said...

Thanks, jam. Glad you enjoyed them! And that top photo is special.

Thanks, cergie. You may not have these wildflowers; but I'm sure you have some beautiful ones over there that we don't.

Thanks, lilly & nevada. It is always nice to know that my photos are appreciated. And wildflowers are special especially in the Spring and actually all the time. :)

Thanks, kimber the wolfgrrrl. You are so right! Wildflowers do help to restore the soul. God is so good to us in creation.
