:oops: :oops: my flying fingers missed the 'l'! Count on eagle eyes K, my little sis, to notice!

I can't wait to start. Andre, we can guess at green stuff too. Hint, hint!

After bulding that suspense here's the first plant to identify. Now keep in mind that where I live I'm about 3 weeks behing GTA so... things are just starting to bloom.

I'll post different zoom level to help.

First plant: Can be seen in 5 of my beds. 5 pink,3 three white and 1 purple. Covers my rocks beautifully. It's having a rough start this year, probably because of the hard winter.

Real size:

I am so excited to be first....that is CREEPING PHLOX...very nice spring plant....durable and will tolerate quite a bit of abuse....I have found it does not like to be in wet soil for prolonged periods of time....but if given full sun and well drained soil....it is hardy and rewards you with a wonderful flash of color each spring.

Murphy wins round one! 10 points! :P

Thanks for the watering tip, I thought they looked dry a little (first picture) but they just bloomed and probably will get better.

Round two is at 8:30 PM eastern time!
