I'll answer all your bear questions in my next segment of "In My Backyard." I'm working on it today.

So you all noticed the phragmites! It's terrible . That moved in and choked everything out in only a few years. Before that we were just starting to get Purple loose strife. I put a stop on that by posting articles everywhere including the mailboxes. They thanked me for the warnings and we were somehow able to control it but the grasses ARE OUT OF CONTROL.

Default The Conservatory

The conservatory at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, it was such beautiful day and the sky was so pretty.

When can we move in? We could start our own commune in there. Have you ever seen any of the conservatories on Biltmore properties?

That might be easier on Dave Stiles if this was an annual contest. Members can add photos up to the last day of every month.
