I’ve never been know to be ‘colorful’, except for maybe my language at times. I’m more of an earth-tone kinda girl. So these are what I was attracted to: browns, greys (or is it grays?), and reds.
Welcome to my interpretation of ‘colorful’.

A structure in Barkley Farmstead in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. I go here to walk, think, admire, observe. I am almost always with my five year old charge. I spend five days a week with this bright charming fellow. Here is a snippet of my day. I love my job.
HIM: Why are there Chrisrmas wreaths hanging in stores before Thanksgiving?
ME: I don’t really know, bud.
HIM: I love Christmas. I can’t wait.
ME: Don’t rush it, pal.
HIM: Do you know what I love about Christmas?
ME: No. Tell me.
HIM: I love the presents.
ME: Me too.
HIM: And I love that I get to eat candy canes.
HIM: And I love the joy of family. (No lie. He said that. Verbatim.)
ME: That’s a really nice thing to say. I’m glad you feel that way.
HIM: I can’t help it. It’s so joy-able. (Also verbatim.) 😉
THIS KID’S ANGLING FOR SOMETHING, WOULDNT YOU SAY?

I headed into the trees, down the brown, leafy path. Enveloped in overgrown greenery. Bumps and stumps jumping out in front of me along the narrow trail. My intention, to escape. To find solitude in the depths of the woods. To find peace in the whisper of the leaves and the skittering of the squirrels. At least I hoped it was squirrels. It wasn’t long before I saw him. Encircled in sun light. He beaconed to me. “Come closer,” I thought I heard him say. “This way.” I’m sure that’s what I heard.
Do you see him? Can you feel him? He was there. I swear.

In accordance with the new season, a little brown. I’ll save the golds, oranges, and reds for another time. 🙂 So, at Cee’s request and because I LOVE THESE CHALLENGES…

There’s a super park in Cherry Hill, NJ where I bring my little ‘charges‘. It’s a quick stroll down the road a piece and makes for some pretty fun photo opportunities. Apparently, the community has set up a garden in Barclay Farmstead. I see people every so often, tending to their own little corner of their gardening world – straw hats on heads, tiny spades in hand. This is the first year I’ve had the chance to see the flowers and veggies in full bloom. Some are cared for more diligently than others, but it’s a fabulous site to see, nonetheless. Last week I spotted, hidden among the flowers, the last of this seasons plump, juicy Jersey tomatoes. I walked the perimeter to see if there was a way to get a closer look but, for good reason I suppose, there was a gate, and it was locked. More than anything else that I could see, there were lots and lots of flowers.
Approaching the garden
Getting closer to those ripe tomatoes!
I can’t get in! But it appears that this guy, hidden in the flora and vegetation, did…
Hidden in the garden
And now, he can’t get out!
Hidden in plain sight
His body language screams frustration! I hope he at least gets to taste some of those rosy tomatoes. Jersey has the best!

I don’t know how she does it, but Cee has thrown out yet another gaunlet – Which Way. If your at a loss for roads to travel, bridges to cross, or paths to take, Cee has them waiting for you on her site. Here a just a few “Which Ways” I’ve taken or observed.
Cape May Zoo bridge to cross
Out your driveway and into the rain…
Barclay Farmstead bridge over the river and through the woods.
Crossing the road on foot!
Knight Park bridge to the swings! Yahoo!
By air – Philly Zoo. Hi Cecily Tynan!
By Ben Franklin Bridge
By escalator at Cherry Hill Mall
By water – Cooper River, Camden, NJ

Cee, @ ceephotography.com has presented yet another challenge. Bridges. I’m afraid I’ve posted most of my bridges. So I guess I’m not rising to the occasion and I need to do more pointing and clicking and maybe the next time some says “bridges” I’ll be ready. But for now, here’s what’s left of my bridge crossings. Maybe less is more. 🙂
Benjamin Franklin Bridge, NJ to PA
South Carolina – Charleston to Mount Pleasant

Since I don’t have enough bridge shots to fill a thimble, maybe you could stop by Cee’s to get a look at what others have to share. Thanks. And thanks for stopping by, browsing, liking, and commenting. As has been the custom, click on the cute little icon below and you’ll be on your way to Cee’s.
