River walk

  I am linking up with Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday .

June 30, 2013

It will be nice to see you join in on our fun this week at Mosaic Monday and to have a look into your world.

Since Google reader is being retired, have you chosen a new method for following your favorite blogs? I linked up to bloglovin and you can find my link in the top right hand corner of my blog.

These photos are some scenes from our walk last weekend at the Susquehanna State Park here in Maryland.  The trail is called the Susquehanna Heritage Greenway trail. Also, some shots of my backyard blooms and birds. 

Above the is trail we hiked on at the park, the Deer Creek which empties into the Susquehanna River. I noticed some of the pretty wild tiger daylilies blooming along the creek, along the trail is an old flint furnace.



At the river, I was able to catch a few of the Eastern Pondhawk dragonflies. The Susquehanna River must be an great place for fishing on the way home I saw this field of daylilies.



This field of daylilies is gorgeous.


My purple coneflowers are starting to bloom, they are one of my favorite flowers. I also included some clematis still in bloom, a juvenile Cardinal, a Ruby-throated Hummingbird and a Carolina Chickadee.



One of my pretty purple coneflowers.



One of my many Carolina Chickadees.  Lately our weekends include a walk somewhere and I enjoy a walk around our yard to see what flowers are blooming and to watch my yardbirds.


I hope you enjoyed my walk, post and photos. Thanks for visiting my blog. I always appreciate your comments.
Join in on the fun and for more wonderful photos please visit  Mosaic Monday and more from  Our World Tuesday
 Thanks to our host: Mary our host of Mosaic Monday and to the hosting group of Our World Tuesday: Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia, Sandy and Jennifer.  I wish everyone a happy week!

Gorgeous photos, Eileen... Even though I have been AOL from blogging for two weeks, I always tried to at least read your blog. I always enjoy it. You are able to go to many great places not only for birding --but just being out in nature. Love the color of that wild lily... Gorgeous.

Hi Eileen! Its been a few years, but I've been to Susquehanna State Park, and it really is a beautiful place to visit, and you've made me want to visit again and see your garden too!

Sandy Carlson said...

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

That was a great walk - and lovely yard - I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite - loved the flint oven - one in my backyard would be perfect :-) and the chickadee and the field of day lilies - what a sight.

Life Images by Jill said...

a "field" of daylillies - my goodness - we only see them in clumps or along borders in gardens - stunning. And I love that coneflower. What a glorious time of year.
Have a wonderful week Eileen.

pattisjarrett said...

I'm happy to hear you have a good many Carolina Chickadees. I love those little birds! I read recently their numbers are declining. Coneflowers are one of my favorites, they seem to like it here. :) I like that in a plant!

Digi-Irma said...

Hi Eileen,
Beautiful collage of beautiful surroundings.
Collage 4 I find totally amazing.
The flower is the purple coneflower, a medicinal flower, they make medications.
Regards, Irma

Hi Eileen - thanks for taking us on that colourful walk. I loved the Purple Coneflowers. I planted some, but a hungry critter ate them right down to the ground!

A FIELD of daylilies! What could be more gorgeous! Great photos, Eileen. I've been so behind, and am slowly trying to catch up. I was wondering about choosing another blog "driver" or whatever. How is it you don't lose the blog you have when you switch? I just don't understand any of it! :-)

Lynne said...

I think I will kiss the nose of "Miss Carolina Chickadee!"
Loved your photos . . . beautiful Cone Flower, mine are just ready to POP . . .

Marcia said...

Lovely spot you found there for your hike. My cone flowers are just showing their colors too.
