POTD: Tulips

Posted on

Pl@ntNet seems to think this is a Didier’s Tulip or Tulipa Gesneriana. There are so many tulip variations, it would be difficult to narrow down any particular one. There are lots of hybrids. They are all in the Liliaceae family. ~Vic

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: Lilium

Posted on Updated 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
