    This weekend’s challenge was suggested by Margba, who wants to see how many places we can come up with that include plants, trees, flowers, or other vegetation in their name. (i.e. Palm Springs, California or  Peachtree City, Georgia) . Feel free to be creative with this – something like Bloomington, Indiana works!

    Be sure to list the town and state, or town and province. Doesn’t matter how big the place is, as long as we can find it on a map!

    I’m challenging you to name 50 of these before Sunday night – NOT including the three I’ve listed here. Ready, set… GO!
