@Dave I know you are not in charge of the internet, but a weird thing has been happening. For about a month I have been getting garden.org to show up less and less in my google searches. It used to be the top one or two choices and has slipped from there. I know I can look the plant up on the site. Usually when I want to evaluate a plant for purchase, I would Google the name. Garden.org came up and places that sold it and articles about it. Then I flip back and forth between them all looking and reading. Or if there were two similar cultivars I would do the same on two tabs comparing them against each other.

So this is an example what happens now when looking for a rose. Wanting to evaluate Our Lady Of Guadalupe rose. Googled it by name. Garden.org did not appear. Read about it but needed more info. So I googled "Our Lady of Guadalupe garden.org " wanting to get Garden.org to appear. It would not. I had to go to my icon to get into the site and type the name in on the site.

Edited to say, First search was "Our Lady of Guadalupe Rose"
Second search "Our Lady of Guadalupe Rose garden.org"

In the past on some plants, Garden.org would be the only search return option. Rare plant or older plant unusual name etc. Now I get a zero return. For awhile I would add garden.org to the name to thwart it not showing up. But that does not seem to work now I get empty searches.

Is garden.org not coming up because I have a shortcut icon and Google thinks if I wanted this site I would use my icon. Or is this a NET NEUTRALITY issue and garden.org will not come up even when I ask for it in a search?

I hope I am explaining it correctly.

May Everyone be blessed with a spectacular week!
I prefer to walk in the light, I prefer a world where people want to be kind and bless each other, I prefer a God who loves and shares so much that he gave up his only Son for me. I prefer to choose the God of Abraham. Let there be peace and let it begin with me.
