Nice pic, Sage! I had heard about those falcons' nesting at South Campus.

When can we move in? We could start our own commune in there. Have you ever seen any of the conservatories on Biltmore properties?
I dunno, these might be in the way

The peas are finally coming up in the garden and as I was searching for a good one to photograph I came across this guy. I loved the old dry dead bits in the background and the red flowers that fell down from one of the trees overhead in the foreground.

Looking forward to a sunny weekend!

April 2009 Photo of the month thread - post contest images here-l_bradfordpearflowers.jpg
I spent much of the day running around and taking photos of all sorts of things. I already feel like I'm spamming this thread so I'll try and restrain myself to just these two. This first image is of a flowering Bradford Pear which can be invasive.

While taking the photo of the flowers I heard wing flaps above me and quickly re-focused on a sparrow sitting just a few feet above me. As Michelle said when she saw the photo. "Two invasive species in one photo!"

I hope everyone's weather is as beautiful as ours this weekend.

Gardeners need photos of invasive species. Without people like you and Sage and the many others taking the time to photo document them, how else do people learn to identify them?

Spring is here. I'd like to take this opportunity to share something with you. We have a Flora Hall of Shame invasive species contest:
