Once again, Sybil has graciously offered to host the fall RU at her home.

Date--- October 6, 2012 ****This is a SATURDAY!!*****
Place-- BURLESON, TX. (South of Fort Worth and east of I-35W)
Since it is a private residence we will not be posting her exact address here, we will dmail it to those planning to attend.
Time--- Noon or later
Eat at 1:00-1:30pm (Electricity is available, but not for cooking only warming)

There will be no door charge, and our hostess will furnish coffee, tea, cups, plates, napkins and plastic ware.

Bring your folding tables, chairs and wagons/carts if you have them. Sybil does have a lot of tables for eating but you will need a table for your plants and chairs for extra seating.

Plenty of space for parking is available. We will register & eat under the large covered pavilion adjacent to Sybil's house. You will pull up in the drive, unload, then park in the pasture. (Watch for land mines! LOL) Thank you Frank for being our parking attendant this past spring!

Don't forget to bring door prizes (one per guest) for a drawing. Something small, low cost or used in good condition, and suitable for either a man or woman. Items can be homemade, plants, gardening books, birdhouses, tools, coffee grounds, yard art, manure...use your imagination!

Please be sure to let us know you'll be attending (& if you'll be bringing guests) on the ATTENDANCE thread: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1277951/

As people post their lists, I'll place a link here in this post for easy reference.

Let's have fun and let the trading begin!!

**PLEASE REMEMBER TO LABEL YOUR PLANTS WITH WHAT THEY ARE, WHO THEY GO TO, AND WHO THEY ARE FROM!**

Stephanie

Sorry, don't have them marked, so don't which ones they are.
I want to take them out and replace them with Four-nerve daisy, but I don't want to throw them away and be wasted, they are beautiful.
Are there any takers?

I have lots of Indian Chief Iris bulbs, maybe some coleus cuttings, I might have some purple datura seeds but I have to find them,

As far as wants, I will be grateful for anything.
I will also have some tropicals, and I will be saving coffee grounds as well.
Tina, I will try to find the Datura seeds but I did not plant them this year, new dog, and grandchildren that are fasinated with my plants. I also have American Elm tree seeds, lots of them.

Thank you, Sheila! Does that grow in water, or just damp?

DH's picnic is back on but it's over at 1 and he says we can leave at 12. It's at a park in Euless--how long will it take us to get to Burleson?

I have an extra walking iris for you Michael.

Carrie...The walking iris is potted only and does like water. We keep it on the deck and bring it in for winter. It looks much healthier when not subjected to direct sun.

Marty...sad that you aren't coming, but glad that you are getting together with the new group down your way!

I also have some Hill Country Red okra seeds and lemon queen sunflower seeds. Let me know if you're interested!

Hill Country Red okra is VERY prolific and has very large pods. If picked when about 4"-5" long, they are very tender when cooked.

Lemon Queen Sunflower is a very tall and prolific bloomer. There's one really huge flower and then lots of smaller flowers on the same stalk. The bees LOVE the flowers and they are so bright and cheery in the garden. The color of the petals range from soft butter yellow to a darker more traditional sunflower color.

Yes, please, perkoschilefarm, on the jade plant. I already killed a tiny one that was nearly dead when I got it. But I love those jade plants. I used to have a huge one. Maybe I left it out too long one fall or something--I forget. But I swear I'll be good to yours!

I have a big flat space next to the window in the bathroom where a plant or five could live happily, and get watered and misted. Whoever had the aloe, I could take that too. I left one with my daughter and she is KILLING it. Arghghgh. Oh, that was perkoschilefarm too! I'd better bring you a whole loaf of bread.

Dennis last winter they sided back to just nubs at ground level and in spring popped right back up. That said it was not to cold this past winter so not sure how they will fair if it gets really cold like it did a couple years back but could easily mulch over them. Then wait for spring and see what becomes of them. Want to try a couple of them?

Oh my, have you guys looked at the weather forecast for Saturday? High of 55º. And that's the HIGH. No telling what it will be at noon. My weather app. doesn't give wind forecasts that far out, so I don't know whether we'll need to tie our stuff down or not.

I was out all morning, and this is the news my DH had for me when I walked in the door.

Can y'all hang tough? I'm good to go if you folks are.

so make sure you are on the attendance thread!*******

Weather has been much worse before...Sybil has coffee too! LOL!

Austin...If I get a chance to fish out a lily from the pond tomorrow I will bring you one. I also have pickerl, sweet flag and Lizard's Tail..(all pond plants). If you want some gold fish I am the place to get those too! We had two fish and a friend gave us one more fish in the spring, and over this summer they have multiplied! I counted sixty or more. If you don't have your pond set up now, you could always let me know later.
