An iChat Buddy who's a photography buff sent me a lovely photo he took of an almond blossom near his California home. I admire the photo so much that I wish to include it in the sequence of photos which display on my desktop. It would go well with the series of photos in the Plants folder (Apple Images, Nature, Plants, Black & White, Abstract, Solid Colors, Pictures Folder), but how do I find this Plants folder so that I may add my new photo to it? I have searched for the Plants folder of photos using Spotlight, but it is not revealed.

Where is the Plants folder hidden?

Look under Macintosh HD/Library/Desktop Pictures/Plants.

Because Apple excludes many system folders.

Exactly why I use the terminal's "find" command.

Or, Devon Technology's freeware EasyFind, which has easy access buttons for "invisible" files and folders, is very fast, doesn't need to index, and its results are much, much easier to decipher than Spotlight.
