I like to take photos of plants in the fall - some get lovely color, some just kind of blacken and melt into dormancy. I've usually put these into the database under leaves or full plant with a photo comment that it is a fall shot. But, I'm wondering if perhaps it would be useful to have a separate gallery for fall color / end of season / not sure exactly what to call it...

Good idea. I've added "Fall Color" as a gallery option.

Thanks, Dave. I'll roll through my submitted photos and reclassify those that are fall photos.

Could we do the same thing with Spring Color and Summer Color. This would be very helpful for both sedum and sempervivum.

If I knew that adding Fall Color would open the door to all the other seasons, I wouldn't have done it. I don't want to add Spring or Summer color. At some point the list just gets too large and a line has to be drawn sometimes.

I agree. I think we get enough bloom photos to cover all the different phases plants go through during spring and summer. It seems adding a photo comment would clarify what phase the plant is at, and perhaps we just need to encourage folks to add comments to their photos.

My two cents for what they are worth: I think flowering plants already have a bloom season listed on the entry, whereas I interpret Fall Color to be foliage changes that are distinct from blooms. Again, just an opinion. Smiling

That is why I thought it would be helpful for the Sempervivum part of the database.
Fall color


Spring color


Summer color


Most sempervivum have seasonal color changes.

Yes, they already do have the date of the photo.
