Heck, I'm a terrible photographer, but I'll throw these ones into the ring.

Purples and yellows go so well together.

Are you sure you're not an Artiste? There seems to be that wild vs. urban contrast going on in those shots.

Well, the contrast isn't by design - I just like wild things and happen to live in the middle of the city, so... Just wish I could figure out how to focus better. Wife says I probably need to set the aperture, whatever that means.

Your Solidago nemoralis is beautiful. That's one plant I'd like to add because of its graceful arching habit. It's locally native for me too. That plant packs a wow in the ornamental department. Nice photo of it you've got there too.

I really like this book. It has a lot of good information in it. Along with a good sized list of native plants, it lists bloom colors, bloom times and what type of animals, etc dine or use. This book introduced me to brush piles and snags. I think it includes basic plans for birdhouses and many other things one might want in a garden.

Suunto I just caught your crocus. They are really pretty and just look at all the movement those twirly orange stamens add.
