  1. The "Official" what are you drinking thread

    Red Stag is a fav of mine. Great whiskey and beer selections. Bartenders are usually pretty knowledgeable and their shepherds pie is spot on. Edit: sorry, I didn't realize I was on page 1 and not the last page of the thread... I didn't mean to reply to a post from 2015, but all of the above is still true.
  2. It was neat watching the storm come over the hill this afternoon and all the boats trying to beat it home.

    My son and I love snorkeling. I picked up a waterproof case for my camera and am trying my luck at shooting fish in the lake. Took these today.

    Audobon has a good site for finding Native plants that meet your needs. Just enter your zip code and use the filters: https://www.audubon.org/native-plants/search?zipcode=19335&active_tab=best_results&attribute=&attribute_tier1=&resource=&resource_tier1=&bird_type=&bird_type_tier1=12966&page=1&page_tier1=1 You don't need to add your email address, but if you do you can export your selected plants to an email. I used my zip for the search shown in the link, but you can modify it for whatever criteria you want. BTW, much kudos for focusing on Natives! I'm a big fan of using them whenever and wherever possible on my property.

    Best bet is Jacob Cline Monarda - Bee Balm. They are hardy, perennial, bright red flowers and bloom from a week ago through July. They're related to mint, the leaves smell like a cross between mint and basil. https://www.highcountrygardens.com/perennial-plants/monarda/monarda-jacob-cline It spreads well and can be split up and moved easily.

    They look like juvie box elder bugs. I'm partly IDing from the maple seeds, which is a tree they like to host off of. For some reason soapy water does a good job controlling them.
  7. Here is a pic of the Hail from last night in my backyard. The initial clouds were mesmerizing the way they were swirling within each other. I was in a restaurant when the golden light hit and didn't get to take any pictures, but the colors were beautiful. Fun evening.

    Thanks Guys. I assume, based on the comment that its an annual, that the best way to control it is to pull it/kill it before it seeds?

    Hi Grass Gurus. I need some help. This weed is starting to invade large areas of my yard. What is it and how can I get rid of it? It is driving my wife crazy, so I have been tasked with fixing it if I want to have a peaceful backyard summer season. Our soil is a little hard and clay (Lionville area), we have a mix of shady areas and sun. It seems to be more concentrated near the house in partly shady areas. I aerated for the first time ever in April and just put down Scotts weed and feed. In years past that hasn't done much good. Any help would be much appreciated.

  12. Definitely makes for a pretty morning. We got firmly in the double digits here in Uwchlan Township. Spring Morning by Josh, on Flickr

    A guy who works for me was driving home Friday afternoon and had a big branch land on his car. Luckily he is OK. I think I would have pooped myself. This was on Old Eagle School in Wayne.

    most likely a leucistic red tailed hawk. I saw this one out by Gettysburg some years ago. Really neat to see. Leucistic Red Tail Hawk by Josh, on Flickr

    Went to the parade with my fam yesterday. It was definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Glad I did it, but I don't think I'll do it again. Looking back the memories are growing more fond by the minute, but the actual event was very crowded and very quick at my location. Everything worked out perfectly for us, I'm really happy to have celebrated with my wife and kids. This was from my hotel window early morning looking at city hall. One Nation Underdogs the evolution of the crowd down Broad Street. I was woken up by the first E A G L E S EAGLES chants at 5am. At 11am there were more than 700k along my stretch of Broad St alone: The Growth of the People by Josh, on Flickr Seeing the Lombardi trophy was the highlight of the day for me. At the time, I didn't even notice Carson, Nick and the QBs were on the bus. Early in the parade, Kelce got off the bus and was shotgunning beers and stealing Police bikes to ride around the fans. Dougie P got off and was letting all the fans kiss the trophy, so within 3 blocks of the stadium they were an hour and half behind schedule. I think the city rounded them up got them back on the bus and motored through to the art museum. They went by my spot at a high rate of speed...
