POTD: Painted Pig

Posted on Updated on

Every year, Hillsborough has a Hog Day. One particular year, I can’t remember which one, there was a pig painting contest. Here is one of them, placed in the yard of the Hillsborough Welcome Center. ~Vic

POTD: Lililum

Posted on

This is definitely a lily or Liliaceae but, what species? It could be a Candidum or, possibly a Longiflorum. It’s nearly impossible to tell even with Pl@ntNet. There are just too many varieties and hybrids. It’s beautiful, though. ~Vic

POTD: Sturgeon Moon 2009

Posted on Updated on

I’ve been digging around in some old photos. I stumbled across this…apropos for the month. Full illumination for the August 2009 moon occurred at 8:54pm EDT on the 5th. I almost nailed the day! I did a 2018 post and a post last year. I didn’t take this one. This shot is much clearer than what my stupid-phone can come up with. It belongs to my buddy Ray and he doesn’t remember where he took it. The upcoming full moon will be full on the 22nd at 8:02am EDT. ~Vic
