Wildwatcher, I just saw your offer of prizes. Our area is so disturbed that plants from Arkansas are unlikely to cause disturbance.
Dap, you do fit my definition of plant purist.

Thank you, kchd!

They are the berries of flowering dogwood (Cornus florida).

Clearing my home of its feathers

Brightening up the place before Equill arrives.

Seriously....The feather in the photo really isn't from one of my parakeets.
It was found au natural in the woods where the harsh winds blew it.

A warm sunrise greets us just days before we are expected to plunge to ZERO degrees with a guesstimated........... wind chill factor of 33 "BELOW"!

I sure hope each and every one of our cars start Friday morning after we've enjoyed each others company for a few days.
I'd hate to be out in THAT kind of temperature trying to fix things.

Looks like some more stiff competition.

And then we'll all have to come see it.

Definitely!

If I ever get it even close to my dream...or well on its way, I'll be wanting to show others what can be done!

Omg, wildwatcher! You're right! POM rules wouldn't be a problem but if the mayapples are not native to the area of the winner, I could see that being an issue.

WG Admin, will the mayapple rootlets be allowed? I have no idea of where they are native nor do I know yet where the yet-to-be chosen winner lives.
