Since I am writing this blog in the beginning of July, I know I am a little behind. I wanted to share the beauty that is Doylestown in May. Usually, I am traveling a lot in May, so it was nice to see the beauty of the flowers blooming. Also, it is great that the Memorial Day Parade came back this year!
Anthony Green- Distance Picnic on Pine
Last year, Distance Picnic on Pine started having outdoor concerts in the parking lot of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. The church is beautiful and if you have the opportunity to visit it, you won’t regret your visit. This year it kicked off with Anthony Green. I have to admit prior to the pandemic, I wasn’t familiar with Anthony Green. He did some virtual shows and I supported them. It was great to support a local artist for my first concert in a long time! It was so much fun and great music.
Michener Museum Concert
Two concerts in one month! The Michener Museum has an amazing courtyard. It is one of my favorite spaces in Doylestown. It was a Friday, so I was in plaid and thank you to my friend for also wearing plaid. We had a great time and was great to see three local artists: Joshua Howard, Brianna Nelson, and Brian Dale Allen Strouse.
Michener has an exhibit called Essential Work- A Community Portrait. My friend Kristin Moore has a photo in the exhibit. I loved being able to see her beautiful work!
Flowers of Doylestown
Doylestown was in full bloom!
Since, I move here, Fonthill has been one of my favorites. I find it very peaceful. It was the home of Henry Mercer and the grounds are amazing. The trees that line the driveway are so beautiful.
We celebrated my Dad’s birthday at the end of the month. We had the seafood bucket from Café Alessio Seafood Grille. It was so good, we pretended we were in New England on the beach at a clam bake. HAHAHA! We had a strawberry shortcake from my favorite bakery, Sweetah’s.
Memorial Day Parade
Memorial Day is one of my favorite days in Doylestown, because of the parade. First it was canceled and then the Covid-19 rules for Pennsylvania changed. So, it was back on! Every time the parade starts and the vets march, I cry.
Something I started with my parents last year was getting lunch from Altomonte’s and visiting a local park. We love Lake Nockamixon and the marina area.
It wouldn’t be a blog post for me without photos from Domani Star. This is the first Mother’s Day since my sister passed last year, so we are creating new memories for my mom. We started with dinner at Domani.
