What gallery should photos of plants breaking dormancy be posted under? The plants I am thinking of aren't seedlings and the new leaves really aren't representative of a mature leaf. Or is ATP not looking for these types of photos?? Thank you!

I would put it under the appropriate category with caption explaining that it is immature or breaking dormancy. For example if it is a close-up of a fern frond just starting to pop up from the ground place it under leaf (with caption explaining). If it a broad shot place it under entire plant, with caption, etc.

And, YES! We DO want this type of photo! (At least *I* do!) I regret not having taken some photos of my clematis breaking dormancy. I was concerned that my Crystal Fountain wasn't going to come back because the Hagley Hybrid growing in the same area was already a foot high before my CF broke ground.....and they look VERY different when they first come up!
