Farmhouse Windows in the Morning Light 1


October 13, 2017

Last month husband David and I were invited along with another couple to southwest Pennsylvania to stay at a farmhouse, the farmstead of which has been in our new friends’ family for six generations. The current farmhouse dates “only” from the mid-1800s. I anticipated roaming the house to capture hundreds of photographs. I did take a few, but I was distracted—not unhappily—by wonderful conversations, a jigsaw puzzle, multiple games of Bananagrams, and lots of real food, including homemade bread and persimmon cookies and pudding made from wild persimmons on the property. We’ve been promised a repeat invitation; maybe I’ll take more photographs next time. Maybe not.


My Blue Heaven

I still don’t do flowers, but I just could not ignore this blue, which happened to be on a flower.

If you get to Schoepfle Garden when the sun is still coming in at a slant, you can see it light up the Wyoming Canna Lilies.

Sweet-Potato-Orange Paint on Two Boards in Madison


September 26, 2017

Titling posts is something I do with immense difficulty. That’s why so many of my posts end in a number; that way I’m able to think of one title and attach it to many posts. But this photograph is the only one I have from my recent time in Madison that shows a fence around a construction area, or any fence, or any boards, or anything colored orange besides the brick wall, which was already in a different category. I won’t tell you how long it took to come up with the title for this post, pitiful as it is. The help I received from Google was minimal. I did find a site that gave many names for the color orange, though, including the one that wound up in the title for this post. Here they are:

Apricot orange, burnt orange, butternut orange, calypso orange, candlelight orange, cantaloupe orange, caramelized orange, carrot orange, cayenne orange, cheddar orange, cheese-cracker orange, Chinese-lantern orange, cider orange, citrus orange, clementine orange, coral orange, crayon orange, curry orange, fire orange, flame orange, goldfish orange, mac-and-cheese orange, mango-tango orange, mandarin orange, marigold orange, marmalade orange, monarch orange, nacho orange, nasturtium orange, naval orange, papaya orange, peach orange, peach-butter orange, peach-sorbet orange, popsicle orange, pumpkin orange, safety-vest orange, salamander orange, salmon orange, sherbet orange, shrimp orange, starfish orange, sunset orange, sweet-potato orange, tangelo orange, tangerine orange, terra cotta, tiger orange, traffic orange, yam orange

I’m open (very) to suggestions for what I could have titled this post. 🙂
