Beetles and Plummers

We’ve just added a couple of nifty new pages here, plus a photo gallery offsite at Flickr. Go to the History section to find links to a page of historical photos, including one of William and Catharine Plummer, the original settlers for whom the hollow was named. Also linked there is a gallery of charming photos from 1919, which we’ve placed at Flickr to take advantage of that site’s superior photo gallery and slideshow applications.

New to the Nature section is an inventory of the beetles of our end of Brush Mountain – the first of many such biological inventories we plan to feature on the site. It may seem like a strange place to start, but as Steve points out, “The Coleoptera of Brush Mountain probably represent the single largest class of living thing on the property, as they do worldwide.”

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.
