Nourishment Lately – Florida

Florida is what nourished me for twelve wonderful days at the end of February.

I almost didn’t take my camera, but I surely am glad that I did. Even if it’s only so that I can look back on these photos and again feel the peace and happiness that I did during this trip.

Adams County, Spring 2015

I’m going to keep the words brief today because there are many photos to follow. 

Greg took me for a drive around the farm on Sunday, which was a perfect spring day, the bluest sky there could be, and here is what I thought:

How lucky am I to be a part of this? How lucky am I to be here to look at this and to photograph this? How lucky am I to know that the very blossoms I am showing you today will produce fruit that will feed many, including myself? I hope that no matter how many springs I am in Adams county, I never stop realizing just how special this is. These trees aren’t here just to be pretty  (although they’re doing an excellent job at that, too) they are here to produce food, they are here to feed people. I love that.

{for the curious, you are seeing blossoms of peaches, apricots, cherries, pears and the very first photo is apples}
{Also, the day I took these photos, Sunday, was my parents 35th wedding anniversary. Happy anniversary Mom + Dad, love you very much, these photos are for you!}

Longwood Gardens: Part One

I’m going to keep the words brief today because there are many, many photos to follow. There are so many photos that I’m going to share some photos today and some tomorrow. Today’s post is not a food post – today I’m going to share a little life/photography with you. 

Last week, my parents came to Philly for a visit! On Friday, my mom and I went to Longwood Gardens. The most I can say is that if you are ever in the Philly area, go to Longwood Gardens. To say that we enjoyed it would be an understatement. We determined that yes, even the boys would enjoy it. We will be making a trip back soon. It’s hard to describe the experience with words, you just need to see it:
