Is this where I would make a request for a new badge?
The sedum people would love to have a sedum badge. Not sure what needs to be done?

Do you have a good photo that would be representative of what sedums generally look like, that I could use a potential foundation for such a badge?

Do we just need a good picture to move this along? I would love a sedum badge.

I posed some questions over on the sedum forum. They might want to vote on this. I'm a newbie so lets see what the group has to say.

Spring post your photo here. We can put a notice in the Sedum Forum to come check it out.

I got side tracked on my search of one that would work. *Blush*

This is Jaws not sure if it will work when it is smaller.

Here it is cropped down. Would this work Dave? I don't remember what the size should be for a badge?

I don't think that'll work. Look at those little badges and you'll see how little room there is for details. That image would look like a green and red blob when resized down to 32x32 in size.

This is the big challenge in coming up with badges for specific plants, and I'm not really thrilled with most of our plant-specific badges for this reason.

I know I worked at trying to make some up awhile back and couldn't find anything that worked. Then I got busy with some other things and forgot. We'll keep working on it and see if we can come up with something that might work.

Anyone out there that has some suggestions?

I took the above image and worked with it in Paint Shop Pro. Will it do?

Oh my goodness. Did you go see it Springcolor? It's wonderful. You did it with the help of Nancy and Dave.

Let's wait to see what Springcolor thinks. Thumbs up
