Identifying shoots when they emerge - web site with photos??

I don't suppose anyone has come across a good source of shoot ID photos??? You know, all those things that you planted and didn't label :oops:, or labelled but used the wrong pen and it washed off :oops: :oops: ... then when the shoots come up you've no idea what they are, or even if they are weeds?

Or is that just me? :shock: (Probably)

Anyway, if you've come across a web site that helps to identify young plants as they emerge - a photographic 'shoot compendium' of sorts - please tell!

(Or maybe the Helpful Gardener could start one? :D )

Thanks :)
