I knew I saw this once upon a time but not quite sure where or when it was., And no I don't think I read it while paying close attention. I had 5 kids too and they are for the most part still here. Two in college and one well what ever she';s in and the rest are out on their own. My days get pretty hectic here and a lot of time I can only skim...........
Any way I regress, thank you for helping me clear this up. I really hate feeling so dumb sometimes.

On the data base...... should I be searching under common names for plants I wish to add a photo and such to?
