A Bit of Paradise
There are people, places, and things, which often leave one with more questions than answers; such was this stop in Pennsylvania, near Wiley’s Bridge, No. 19.
The stone building beckoned us to stop, and explore both the interior of the structure and the surrounding gardens.
But had it been a home or perhaps a roadside business? When was it built or last occupied?
Was this wall built to keep the river out, livestock in, or perhaps as a line of defense?
Were these bleeding hearts planted by someone or a gift from nature?
From across the small road we spotted this solitary wall, perhaps standing guard over what his place had once been?
The workmanship was exquisite; I could not help but wonder what stories this small Eden might have to tell – I do hope we were listening.
