I see two frogs too!! What a great shot Karen I tip my hat to you.

Stormy what a nice tour Thumbs up I too would like to know where it is Whistling I sort of like the blue, a bit eclectic looking, it does seem to fit the artsy theme.

I agree Deb, I thought angelonia too. I like the purple much better than the pink Smiling
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

They are Mossy Frogs, and there are two! The first one is sitting on top of the second. If you look closely, you can make out top frog's toe over bottom frog's eye.

Great series Stormy! The guy with the lava rock fountains looks interesting... your photos of his stuff are really nice!
Instead of running after perfection, why not simply walk in faith?

Man, I am losing posts this morning. Sad

It is Phoenixville, Pa the former home of Phoenixville Steel. It's only about 15 minutes away. I plan to take a bunch more photos on Saturday as I think that the revitalization of a rust belt town would make for a good article for our MAM cubit. The Eisenhowers all live in the rural sections & suburbs adjacent to this town. This is the first town in Chester County butting up to Montgomery County. It sits on the western border of Valley Forge National Park.

There is tremendous old wealth & hugh Equestrian centers in the out lying areas and thankfully there is still quite a bit of farmland left, even if they are gentrified farms, it's still somewhat agrarian.. At one time there were large federal & state farm rehab facilities in the area, one for the Army and another for the mentally ill, but they are now closed. There is still a hugh one run by the Franciscan Fathers for troubled teens and it looks beautiful & very productive. This whole town really suffered in the 70's & 80's. The main street had degenerated into a few flop house seedy old hotels, with a lot of street drug dealers and highly visible ladies of the night. But that is all cleaned up & gone now. Big Grin

Thank you, Karen. I am not a very good photographer but I am enjoying trying to get better.

I agree Stormy, for what it's worth I think you take some beautiful shots!

Awesome pics Stormy. I will have to make that a day trip too. Jamie and I went to Germantown/ Mt. Airy and went to the Earth Bread+Brewery...it rocks for the food and the beer isn't too bad...and since they have my Strongbow I can drink there too:) Great atmosphere and there are some nice shops there, I think we will end up spending some time there after the zoo on Saturday:) Have you been there?

Yes, Deb, I have. The Zoo is great! But if you've already been to Germantown and Mount Airy, just go a bit further and spend the afternoon on Germantown Ave. in Chestnut Hill. You will really like that and don't miss the farmer's market there. There are lots of great places for lunch there.

We've driven through them...going to do the whole walking thing this weekend. I think the farmers market was going on Tuesday evening. They had certain areas that were blocked from parking for one:)

Love the camo shot Thumbs up

Barb whatever it is it definitely would look good as a planter. I agree
Looks like some kind of seeder or sifter maybe Confused

I agree - too small to be a manure spreader, but I'd bet a seeder.

Love the cammo shot.
