Oh my gracious, what a fabulous turnout and look at all those plants lining the tables. I definitely see the resemblance of you and your sisters, Susie. You are prettier than ever and are such a fine person I love and admire so much. How I envy your super organizational skills too.
Be proud of your hard work and the dedication it takes for you to have a swap like this for so many years.
One of these days...I sure would love to meet you and so many others :)
well How about chatting with a couple gals down your way to come for the weekend I Can take care of room & board for you all Just the cost of gas to get here My Nephew who was here today said it is a 12-14 hr dr for him to come home . he was stationed in Va not sure where . but now he is at the penagon working .
this was do Much fun this year & Lorraine is my Baby sister. & Thank for the Kind words :) Just remember to Mark your Calendar we always have the swap the 1st SATURDAY OF JUNE & I Think it is the 7th of June Next yr 2014 you may have to rent a u-haul going home :)))
I just realized that I missed your swap and also where Hastings is compared to where I live Owosso and it isn't that much of a drive you are just south of Grand Rapids and I would just take I-69 to Grand Ledge and then straight over to Hastings.
I want to plan on it next year and I have plants that I will plan on bringing especially some Hellebore seedlings that are getting big and need to be transplanted.
Too bad you don't plan a fall swap that would be cool.
Yes Jan you are just a Hop & Skip from us about 1hr away from us if that . I Have tried fall swaps & People say they will be there then something else happens & They don't show So now I Only do the spring swap . But Mark it in a safe PLACE THAT Our Swap is always HELD THE 1ST SATURDAY OF JUNE EACH YEAR I Start potting up may Plants in the fall
for the spring swaps That way they Look fresh & Other swappers will also be able to enjoy the Blooms .
So if you was to pot up the Hellebore this fall they will be perfect for the swap :) & If you can send me your email I will send you a reminder in the spring in case you don't check into daves , I Always post here .
but jan your welcome to stop by When your over this way alway love to meet other gardeners :)
