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.

Things I’ll Miss—Moonlit Nights

If you follow this blog you know that for some time we have been trying to sell our house and move back to Pittsburgh. Our tablets are done (DreamMap publishing in October) and it is time to come off the mountain. Of course moving is hard work so I haven’t been taking new pictures and have been thinking of how to keep the blog “alive” during this time of transition.

Moonlit waterfalls are beautiful wether they exist in nature or are created. The moon is from our back yard, the waterfall is part of Bushkill Falls about twenty miles away.

Pocono Lily

Lilies are the crown jewels of our garden. When they bloom Summer is in full gear. Lilies remind me of warm weather, swimming pools, lakes and walks in the park. I think they might be my favorite except for tulips, daffodils…oh never mind, I don’t really have a favorite. They are just beautiful flowers.

Medicinal Poison Plant

Digitalis is a medication prescribed to certain heart patients. Digitalis toxicity is a complication of digitalis therapy, or it may be occur when someone takes too much of the drug at one time. Digitalis is made from this beautiful plant called Foxglove. To me it is interesting that certain medicines can also be poison if too much is ingested. One of the reasons to grow this plant in a mountain garden is that animals will not eat it and therefore the deer and rabbits stay away from your garden. You can buy a print of this image at my commercial gallery.

Flower with a Beard!

Each year Iris puts on a show and each year there are more and more in the garden so we divide them up and create other Iris pockets. They are usually called bearded iris because they seem to have a face with a beard. This was taken on a Nikon D3100 with a 50mm-300mm Nikon Lens at 240mm at f11 for 1/160th of a second at an ISO of 400. You can buy a print of this one by clicking here.
