I really enjoy and appreciate the user comments found in the database. I'm wondering if it may make sense to dedicate a week or month to adding comments, especially now as we wrap up a growing season. Folks seem to like getting nuts, maybe double down on new comments for a given time period?

The same idea could be done for photos other than pretty bloom portraits - fall foliage can be messy looking but quite useful for someone contemplating a new plant.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Me too. I like both ideas. Harvest season for comments and database photos? Smiling

I have tried to put up some photos of plants showing seasonal changes. For example these two photos of succulents during their summer dormancy, corresponding to our annual drought. I would hope images like this give folks a useful idea of the appearance of healthy plants during their seasonal downtime, as opposed to the much more verdant pictures usually taken during their growth and flowering seasons.
