Oh no! there goes my homemade Caesar salad.

Oh! Perhaps I should rethink egg shells in the compost, open or closed.

I have some blackberries and other pictures from my yard. I just need to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer. I'll post them here for all of you!

Category 1 plants are

Invasive exotics that are altering native plant communities by displacing native species, changing community structures or ecological functions, or hybridizing with natives. This definition does not rely on the economic severity or geographic range of the problem, but on the documented ecological damage caused.

I have two kinds of compost: one is covered and I use for kitchen vegetables and fruit waste; the other is open and I throw garden waste in there and eggs shells. I often find the open compost disturbed and broken egg shells scattered around the ground, probably by  birds; I have seen birds eating egg shells at the feeding station.

Dallas, thank you for The Natural History of the Chicken"; I sent it off for my grandsons to see.

Dallas, I ran across this article which confirms much of what you told us about Mexican petunia. At first I thought I might like it, but not if it so easily seeds. It grown in zone 5, if Dave's garden is correct, although he was describing Ruellia humilis, not Mexican petunia  (Ruellia brittoniana), which is on Category I list for the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council (EPPC).

One of my neighbors had a Gunnera.  It looks Jurassic, which I like.  Another had a hardy banana, which also looked like it should be harboring a Brachiosaurus.

Dallas-  Is that your Mexican petunia growing so nicely?  I planted some a few years ago, and it isn't doing too well.  It looks healthy and flowers, but just never spread.  I'm guessing it doesn't get enough sun where it is.

The black bamboo is gorgeous.  They sell it at our local botanical garden (they have a bamboo sale every year).  I'll have to check it out and make sure it's a clumping variety.

I'm really enjoying all of your photos.
