The Tree Frog and the Morning Glory

For the first time in all the many years I have taken photographs in Valley Forge I came across a tree frog.  A tiny little frog that makes a big, big noise.  Not only did I find one, but on my way out of the field, I found this second one. Be still my heart!!

My New Friend - The Smiling Dragon Fly

This little guy hung around for a long time this morning while I was photographing frogs. He was very curious about my camera.  He would fly off for a minute and then come right back.  Finally I turned my camera on him and he looked up and smiled.  (Click on him to see that toothy smile.)

Good Bye Glenmary Lane

Well, dear old wonderful house.  We said goodbye to you on Monday, July 6, 2020.  Oh we had such a good run.  Twenty six years and counting.  Ken and I moved here in October 1994.  We put on a new roof, added some air-conditioning and some new red shutters.  Yumiko came home in 1998.  Nancy and Ed had their wedding reception here.  Peter and Anna had their wedding reception here.  Yumiko and Jessi got married here in the back yard!  So many family reunions, and Hollins reunions, and ASTM sleep overs, and neighborhood parties.  But time marches on.  She held up well and sold in one day to the first people who came through to take a look.  Yumiko has moved with her Jessi to Philadelphia and I have moved to Malvern with my Tom and we will all begin a new chapter.  Take care dear Glenmary Lane.  Oh how we loved you.
