This is certainly NOT important; just for future possibilities…

I could add a few badges, but I'm not sure most say anything about my interests or growing conditions.

Have plants that fit into a lot of the existing badges, but I'm not passionate about any of them. Can there be a badge for Equal Opportunity Plant Lover? Hmmm, can't imagine what it might look like though.

I now live in Texas (the size of several small European countries), but don't have a lot of plants or growing conditions in common with, say, north or west Texas. Now that it's June 1st, I'm wondering if there could be a badge for the Gulf Coast region. Suppose the BP logo wouldn't be allowed… Maybe a shrimp would work?

How about Enjoys or Suffers Long Hot Summers? A sweating sun badge.

Also on my wish list would be a badge for Multi-Regional Gardener. I've had the great fortune of gardening in several states as well as several countries. Surely other members have had experience with gardening in various countries, regions, climates… Perhaps a world globe.

Finally, Foliage Fanatic. I grow as many, if not more, plants for their foliage as their flowers.
