Great pictures! I, who am stuck with dial-up, appriciate the thumbnail pictures. When they are full sized my computer gives up after opening only two, but this thread downloaded, completely, in seconds with no problem. Great shot of the thyme.

RE: Trip to Chapel Hill Part II

Thank you Keith. I am glad you can see the pictures! :)

RE: Trip to Chapel Hill Part II

I still haven't made it by there for the gardens. I love seeing the photos. Between Boston last week, a trip to BB this week (followed by planting), having a cold, guests tonight and leaving for France on Wednesday....I have NO extra time!

Your photos are beautiful and the thumbnails are working well.

Take care,

Beautiful pictures! Thanks and also for the identification. That is great. They certainly are ahead of my yard here an hour north of Charlotte. I appreciate your efforts. Nancy
