Reading books and picking berries are among the most worthwhile pasttimes, in my estimation. Here are two great places to visit:
Calling all book lovers...please take note of the new little button widget for Lanier's Books on the sidebar of my blog. If you enjoy reading or collecting old books (antiquarian gems and gently-loved jewels, as my dear friend refers to them), one click on the button will take you to her blog and the link to her newly-opened online store. Lanier herself is a gifted writer, so either way, a visit there will not disappoint.
Calling all locals, be sure to check out Indian Orchards, an organic, pick-your-own, family run farm. It's located along PA 352 on Copes Lane, Media, between Glen Riddle and Knowlton Roads.
We love going here in the early morning. It is so peaceful and quiet, except for the buzzing bees and chirping birds, but those are joyful noises.
Happiness is... an activity that everyone in the family enjoys, i.e. eager participation, no one dragged along, etc.
Berry picking is best done in the early morning hours - by noon, the sun will start to bake your head, and it is no longer that activity that everyone in the family enjoys (learned this the hard way)
berry nice :)
not a bad take, eh?
