I go out for an evening walk, I find things. I find things, I photograph things. I seem to have a never ending supply of curiosities. ~Vic

POTD: Strawberry Full Moon

Posted on Updated on

I’ve done previous Strawberry Moon posts, the first, of which, I did shortly after returning to blogging after a four year absence. I think I have covered all the data.

Full illumination occurred June 24 @ 2:39pm EDT. You can howl if you want to. Go ahead. ~Vic

POTD: Magnoliaceae

Posted on Updated on

It’s genus is Magnolia but, this is a hybrid tree with Magnolia Denudata (Lilytree or Yulan Magnolia) and Magnolia Liliiflora (Mulan Magnolia, Purple Magnolia, Red Magnolia, Lily Magnolia, Tulip Magnolia, Jane Magnolia, Woody-Orchid or Japanese Magnolia) as parents. Whew! That is longer than the last one. ~Vic

POTD: Strange Fish

On an evening walk, I passed by our local Board of Elections. This was sitting at the corner of the steps. I wasn’t sure if I was going to laugh or run away. ~Vic

POTD: Silk Tree

Posted on

Fabaceae family, Mimosoideae clade, Albizia genus and Julibrissin species. It is commonly referred to as a Mimosa tree but, that isn’t quite right. It’s also called a Persian silk tree, a pink silk tree and a pink siris. North Carolina State University considers it to be invasive. It’s still pretty and it smells so good. ~Vic

This could be a Daisy or a Mum. They are in the same family. Mums usually come out in the Autumn so, I’m going with some form of Daisy. ~Vic
