Mountain Wetlands

Maple Swamp located in the Delaware National Forest of Pennsylvania is labeled a swamp on the maps. However, people who live in or near swamps prefer to cal them wetlands . In all four seasons they look different. I think they provide beautiful scenes in the autumn.

Pittsburgh Autumn

Pittsburgh is a city of hills and trees. The hills create the diverse neighborhoods that make up Pittsburgh’s blend of ethnic cultures from Germantown to Polish Hill. The trees are a wonderful blend of hardwood trees that make for amazing parks and spectacular fall colors. This view of downtown from Schenley Oval.

Finally Autumn

Finally, Autumn has arrived although the show from nature may not be as great this year because of the warm and dry weather. Searching the archives I found this. Taken a block from our old house in the Delaware National Forrest. The Pocono mountains are exquisite this time of year.

Special Day Lily

In Western Pennsylvania day lilies grow wild by the road side. They are always a plain orange color. They naturalize so vigorously that some people think of them as weeds and pull them out. They are available in a wide variety of colors. We tend to eschew the very popular Stella D’oro variety and plant different colors. I love the dark purple and red day lilies. This year we planted this one not knowing what color it would be and got this pleasant surprise.

Pittsburgh from Schenley Oval

Last week I shared an image of Pittsburgh and received some nice comments. So here is another one shot from the top of Schenley oval in the park adjacent to to Oakland. This one was shot with a telephoto lens and I find it more striking.

Pittsburgh Fall 2016

I thought I would miss out on seeing Autumn colors in Pittsburgh this year since we would be away for most of October. However, due to the warm weather and absence of frost the trees still have not turned. They seem to be adapting well to global warming. This was taken on November 4th and still no frost.
