where can I find pictures of babies?

I am looking for a place where I can find pictures of what plants look like when they are first emerging. I am trying to make a little book for my school gardens so people will stop weeding out the babies. Does anyone have a great website or book? We are here in Minnesota and we only plant natives in these gardens if that helps.

The seed site has some photos.

find the latin names of the plants you are interested in ....

using such, followed by something like 'seedlings' ....

and then flip over to the IMAGES side ...

Ken's got the right idea. Start with the Latin or common name of each plant and do a google image search. Carol's website looks helpful, too. Try there first to test it out.

Two big thumbs up for the suggestion to search with the Latin binomial. The quality of the info you find via those searches is so much better.

Also, be sure to label well here seed has been planted. Take pictures yourself of the items you know. And include pix of items that are clearly undesirable weeds. When things get really weedy or overgrown, sometimes clearing out the obvious "junk" is the best approach to make the desirables more noticeable - all of a sudden that row you planted becomes visible.

I also included a link to the Virginia Tech "weed" site that may include a few of the plants that you are looking for. Seedling pix included throughout this site.
