The AtHome Pilgrim

Musings at a Slower Pace


Philly area, Pennsylvania, USA
"Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita," I find myself still asking some of the same questions I did when I was just a punk kid. The Big Things confuse me. Fortunately, though, many little things delight and amuse me, and some Big Things--my wife, our kids, our bird and bunny visitors, food, baseball--make me very, very happy. In my pilgrimage, I try to be guided by the wisdom of dear old Auntie Mame: "Life is a banquet!"

"some gems" is right! These were so gorgeous I feel vaguely dirty for having drooled on them. Very nice. Thank you.
Thanks for these, I have stopped going after some years back deciding the mobs and mobs of people, just took the fun out of it for me.
Glad you shared.
I love those purple ones! thank you~r
The first pics remind me of Guatemala where my children are from - it is gloomy in Iowa today - this post brightened my office - thanks for sharing
Love the first three and the last photo. The first one is especilly brilliant with its light and dark. You sure know your way around a camera, Mr. Pilgrim.

The black ones with cornflower blue skirts are my favorites
Thank you
I needed this
I used to live in Lancaster. This made me feel so homesick.
Dazzling, especially the heliconia & the orchids coloured like black-velvety pansies.
Wow, that Rose Cymbidium makes me think of Hawaiian sunsets! And I was amused by the "purple whatever" tag. =o)

Keep pointing that camera at them flowers, Pilgrim!
More loveliness. More thanks.
This makes my soul feel good.
Ooooh! Ahhhhh! Wow. OOOOH!
