There is no way any one shot can get all the plants that were attending this bash.
3 tables and at least that much more scattered around on the lawn.
Here's just one tableful.
(See ROX you're plants made it just fine)

I'm not sure of the final count but at least 16 members were there w/ a support crew of probably 30 MORE.
All in all a great turnout from KY, OH, IN.

southernOHIO checkin' out the greenery!
It was great we held the RU at a Lock and her husband works for the Corp in charge of them.
We got a great view on how they really work and why.

And this one I took after I left the RU.. There is a pair of nesting bald eagles along the Ohio river with three eaglets. You can't really see them well but the circle to the left has one of the parents inside and the one on the right is around the nest

Thanks, ROX

Well Rox you were there in spirit.... Your plants were a hit & I do believe that I got them to the rightful owners....
I wasn't sure on the Campanula, And I never did see the Salvia Maynight go, Tho, Rusty said he did. He got nicknamed "The Groper" . Did you all get your Maynight?

I tell you the roundup was wonderful, And it shows the Dave's Garden people are the best.

And here is Rox and her son, by the light of the "Neon" sign.
