This City Mouse meets a Country Mouse

I nearly forgot about this picture. A bout a month ago, we left ventured out of the city to go apple picking at Terhune Orchards in Princeton, NJ. Its a lovely large farm which usually has a large variety of apples for picking and purchase.

Unfortunately for us, we visited on the last weekend of the apple picking season and the trees were largely picked pretty bare. So, it took some scrounging to find good choices. Even when we did find apples, we have to contend with locals that had gotten there first.

That’s the price you pay for organic, I guess. I’m just glad that I saw the mouse before I reached to grab the apple. I’m an animal lover, but I don’t need a field mouse on or in my hands.

Nature in Newark

I was driving back into NYC the other day via the Lincoln Tunnel sitting in traffic in Newark, NJ.  The sun was setting and somehow I ended up lined up with these three metal tower structures. Newark is know for many thing but not generally  for its beauty. I have no idea what the purpose of these towers are, but they created a very beautiful view, juxtaposing human structures with nature in a very unlikely place.
