A Stroll Through Lancaster, In Autumn

A Stroll Through Lancaster, In Autumn

A Stroll Through LancasterLancaster, PA is one of the oldest inland towns in the United States. It’s also a very artsy city, with a small gallery row and many arts and crafts stores.
The town is also known for its large amount of trees,and in the autumn the streets and sidewalks are full of colorful leaves. Driving through the city is a treat for the eyes, as is walking down the streets of downtown. The combination of the charming old buildings and the autumn leaves caught my eye one day while walking with my family. I snapped this photo, hoping to reproduce the charm.

Regan

Regan thought she shared a pot with some exotic and colorful plant… Who does she complain to about her plant placement?

Please help give her a loving home!

About Pot Dragons

These small dragons bury a single egg in a freshly potted plant. The dragonling that hatches resembles the plant that shares its pot. Once the dragon reaches adulthood, they grow wings and leave their childhood home behind. You may not have even known you had a pot dragon, only to discover one morning that one (or more) of your pots had been knocked over during the night!

Bonnie patiently waits for the flowers in her pot to bloom. Eating chocolate helps pass the time… she may have lost track of how much time has passed, and how much chocolate she’s eaten. Oh dear, the Pot Owners may start to notice their candy disappearing.
Wait, when did that flower appear?

Please help give her a loving home!

Wilson takes keeping the existence of Pot Dragons a secret very seriously. He has managed to avoid attracting attention thus far to his presence, despite a few close calls.

Darn Cat.

Please help give him a loving home!

I love this photo.

I took it years ago, when our community was mostly undeveloped land. At the time there were a mere 10 families living in Villas and Townhomes, and we were among the first to move in to the community. Back then, the kids and I would take walks every morning, and sometimes again in the afternoon/evenings, enjoying the empty fields.

The fields have been turned into townhouses, houses and an apartment complex. The apartments are what block any similar photos from ever being taken again. Too much has changed. It does make me sad that the area has been urbanized, the empty fields vanished. But in fairness, the townhouse we live in was also once farmland.  The herd of deer that once wandered the area has long since moved on.

We were returning from our walk when I snapped this photo, and the kids were still young enough to feel excited about being outside after dark. Looking at this shot, I remember how Dave herded the children toward the townhouse so I could play with my camera. I loved how the moon looked that night, and the fading of the sunset into nightfall. I don’t normally like silhouettes, but the trees add an interesting element to this photo.
