If you haven't been to Google yet today, bop on over there and take a look at today's Google Doodle (Google logo). It's special for Earth Day (today, April 22, 2012).

Hilarious! Very cute!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Isn't that cute? For anyone who hasn't been there yet, when you go, hang around long enough for the flowers to bloom.

Hi Duane. Great photos. They would love to see those over in the Perennial Forum
http://garden.org/forums/view/perennials/

And the Trees and Shrubs Forum. http://garden.org/forums/view/shrubs/

Have you added them to the Plant Database yet?
Just guessing, is it liatris (Gay Feathers)?
Love your lupine. Lovey dubby

That's okay. It takes a bit to find your way around. There are so many wonderful forums and threads to investigate. And post your great photos.
Do you grow succulents?
I see you live in Western Oregon. Isn't it wonderful that we are finally getting sun. : )

Did you figure out how to start a new thread?

I figured out a new thread..thanks. It's nice to get some sun. My ws plants are very slow growing,though. Back to rain next week I heard. I don't grow many succulents. Just a few hens and chicks.

Yes, rain starting Monday, and I think all next week. My gardens will love it. : )
We were gone for a month on a road trip, so I didn't do any WS this year. Sure miss that I didn't sow at least a few.

Hens and chicks? Whistling
