More photos from Pennsylvania

Dear Children -

I'm sure you've seen murals in your towns - this is a mural in Duncannon, Pennsylvania, and I'm trying to climb into the mural so that I can go hiking in that magical place.

This little nest built among the reeds of grass amazed me. When I look closely at the photo I think I see the little head of a baby bird. What do you think?

Remember my husband, Guy? He joined me and walked five days with me.

We saw this sign and wondered how many rooms there are for rent in the little cart. Maybe they're renting rooms to rabbits and birds.

I love the sight of this little town across the Susquehanna River. It looks so peaceful.

I hope you're having a great vacation.

Love, Nana Greta

A long time without posting

My daughter, Sofia, whom some of you know as Ms. Hart, is walking with me now, and she brought me good luck - we've been finding lots of pennies along the road, and a few nickles and dimes. We're in Northeastern Pennsylvania, in a small university town called Bloomsburg. It's on a lovely river called the Susquehanna, one of my favorite rivers in the world.

Some photos from Northern Virginia

Dear Children,

By now you should know that I love animals and flowers and little houses. This cow reminds me of the longhorns I saw in Alabama.

These white flowers line the road like sentinels keeping track of who is passing by.

Who wants to move into this little house with me? I think it didn't cost very much to make it, but I like the way it looks. And see the dog in the cage next to it? He barked loudly at me.

Did you know that you can eat the buds of day lilies, the orange flowers below? My husband taught me that. I picked some and fried them in olive oil, added tomatoes, salt and pepper, and then broke two eggs into the pan. An excellent supper with brown rice!

These flowers remind me of bells; they looked so pretty in front of a little restaurant in a village.

Happy 4th of July!

Love, Nana Greta
