    Wow how cool! Ouch those thistles hurt. Be careful of getting snared by them.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Yah, these are quite close! One of the Filiformis sites is pretty close to Saltwater too, but on the "main Island" of LI

    Nice idea, I may do that when I visit next... which should be soon

    Thanks for the Thistle ID, although the Intermedia is indeed Intermedia. Those are teeny seedlings and that's how they look at that stage

    Thanks for the ID, any idea what time of year they usually flower?

    Thanks! Although I'm more afraid of the legions of Poison Ivy to be found there!

    Well, that spot was right by the Old Inlet breech... visited a couple of months ago and it was one of the only spots that was not completely flattened in that area.
    Did look pretty bad though, a lot of salt water overwashed the area and flooded it.
    There were numerous dunes protecting it with only the immediate ones around it left.
    I found out it is fed by an underground aquifer, hopefully the life there survives and the fresh water balances out.
    There were toads, snakes and a fox den there with other bog plants and whatnot.
    All the marshes in the area are completely gone... as are pretty much all the dunes and the habitats they protected.
    I do have a few years worth of pics of that part of the Fire Island Wilderness, I'll have to update this thread with those once I get the chance!
