Spring Bulb Bed created in the Fall of 2014 to surround a mature Weeping Cherry and a new Redbud (Cercis chinensis 'Avondale').

Thanks Neal. I'm expanding my horizons on ATP a bit more these days. I've used the Plant List feature for years and played around with the Blog feature once in a while, but not much participation in the forums or with the other features. I do tend to seek out Sharon's blog posts and the articles she writes about Aunt Bett and Ninna when she was growing up in the Appalachian Mountains. I first saw and really enjoyed them when I joined DG back in the day and can't seem to get enough of them. I have recently discovered threads in the "Garden Photos" forum and a "Color Echoes" thread in the "Perennials" forum that are right up my alley with the design aspect of gardening that I like so much. I have noticed you and your posts as I've been venturing out. You seem to be very gentle and creative, and I am very glad to meet you.

I've only done one other multi plant photo, and thought I'd try another. Tried and submitted a banner too for kicks, but know it will probably be a long time before that gets used with the number of banners that Dave has in the queue. Did a Green Page review this morning. I am still working full time with a really long commute, but always have much more time to be online during the winter months when there isn't much to be doing outside. Can't wait until I can be home full time - 14 more months until I retire, not that I'm counting down or anything Smiling
