How funny! I hope you have a safe trip. Have you been to this specific sale before? I'm hoping to get some Lithops there, I hope I'm not disappointed.

No. First time for the show and sale. I went to a conference (with free admission to the Missouri Botanical Garden) three years ago and bought some plants there.

What a great haul you got!! And weren't those little dish gardens so cute? They were my favorite!!

Here are my few that I came home with. LOL, I have no idea what their proper names are. They didn't come with tags, and I am a beginner.

First is the planter I'm giving as a gift to my daughter's sitter for her birthday. Of course I had to come home and repot them for display!
