Northern Parula By: Pat Coate Happily a recent trip to Allegany State Park yielded a warbler that I don’t often see – a Northern Parula. It, along with several other birds, seemed to be playing peek-a-boo with me while working its way through this beautiful flowering tree. Some field marks for the Northern Parula visible […]

A new play about Wales' answer to Edith Piaf opened last week at Sherman Cymru and has so far received standing ovations from audiences.
Late last summer, I hiked the Beehunter trail with friends. It was weird and creepy. When we stopped, it sounded like it was raining. The trail was littered with bits of leaves – like the schnitzels of paper after children have been practicing with scissors. Normally, when you look up into a tree, you can […]

Look! Two white trilliums. But wait. Look carefully! They aren’t the same. The second flower is truly White Trillium (Trillium grandiflora). The first is actually a Red Trillium (Trillium erectum). Sometimes, there are white-flowered Red Trilliums. What can I say? Nature is weird. I found the above white-flowered version at College Park while leading […]
Many people have visited Brangwyn Hall in Swansea and seen the Empire Panels housed there. But how many know anything at all about the man who created such magnificent works of art?

The past week has been a little chilly with the past two days with heavy rain. Still, the native wildflowers lining our driveway cheer me up. Forest Phlox (Phlox divaricata) plants are on the forest floor under the red bud trees. This shrub is some type of Viburnum I believe but if anyone knows what it is, let me know. Show More Summary
