    Spring and Summer 2018

    Here's a second one from a slightly different angle with 15 second shutter. I didn't notice the airplane when I first took the shot. It was waaaaayyyy up there. Starry Night by Josh, on Flickr

    Spring and Summer 2018

    I kind of dig this one (especially since the sky was actually clear and not pouring rain like it seems to have incessantly been here). This is a 25 second exposure of the night sky showing the colors of our galaxy. I shot this on my back patio up in the finger lakes. The night sky is a different place without light pollution.

  3. This is not my video, but pretty amazing from inside (and outside) the Whip Tavern last night. The Tavern sits on the edge of Doe Run creek (and is an awesome English bar for those that like Sheppard pie and great UK beers). Idiots walking through the rising water aside... As I understand it, this group had to be water rescued from the restaurant to dry land. I got sad when the kegs started floating by.

    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.
  5. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Pea to dime size hail in lionville. I have some good pics, will post later

    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.

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