ORVG 2008 Spring RU

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

Held June 7, 2008 at Steamboat Bend Park, Cincinnati, OH

After a bit of a scare w/ threatening skies and a slight drizzle the weather turned out to be Marvelous!
Good Food! Good Friends! and TONS of Plants..... how can it get any better!?!

Well let's just add in a Mystery Guest......
ID held in deepest secrecy.....
teasing hints given out and sly tricks played on at least 2 Forums and 4 Threads that I know of.....
and who better to pull that off than one of DG's first RU Attendees

Darius and her electric smile! (and big knife!)

Getting group shots is like herding cats!
So except for our Group Shot it will be mostly small group and scenery posts I'm sure.

Here's left to right.
Defoecat, LilyHostaKy and Badseed..... of course 'seed is goofing off! lol!

Chele's got her farmer duds on :)

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

LOL Jazz! I had to change clothes before we left. I could not find a white bra anywhere in the house so I had to wear a black shirt. So I had to take off my black capris so I didn't look like a hood, completely dressed in black.

I also requested we make the Roundup earlier in the year which I believe was a well accepted idea/plan. Every year, we are all sweaty and hot and personally, all the pics of me are red faced (not to mention the goofy faces!).

New Madison, OH(Zone 5a)

What I wanna know is...who stole all the white bras...with 7..yes ...7 girls in the house????????? Chele...that's not a goofy face...it's just you....lol....(running and ducking!!)

Oops...that wasn't smart...now she will say somethin bad about me!!

ROTFL You better watch it shorty. I know where you live!

New Madison, OH(Zone 5a)

Yeah??????? Then let's see you find me!!!!

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

Hmmm, is that a double dog dare?? I think my schedule is pretty open after this week. ;)

Buffalo, WV(Zone 7a)

LOL at you two! Chele, in the pic GW took of you doing the nasty with the fingers :), I was going to tell you to wear some sunscreen woman! You've fried yourself ;)

Sugar Valley, GA(Zone 7b)

I can find you Marcy Sue.. ;-P

New Madison, OH(Zone 5a)

Yep!! Double dog dare ya Chele! LOL!!
Dusty...YOU know how to get here...lol.!
Lana...she IS fried!!!
Ok...lunch break is over, and the kids are bugging me to go outside and swim! That means I have to either pull weeds or plant...and I think it's too hot to plant right now...but I have to be out there so I can watch them. Too bad the pool isn't big enough for me too!!

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

Fried? Mentally? Physically? Both?!?! I'm always this color in the summer. You guys have to remember I'm out in the greenhouse from early May on. My Grandpa was Chippewa Indian. Both my mother and brother look biracial and get a brown tan while I turn Barbie orange. Not fair! The red face was due to the heat and raging hormones. LOL

Nasty fingers?? Must have been the ganglean cysts at work.....

I have all my plants sorted, walking around the yard, rubbing my jaw, thinking. (Yes! It hurts).

Marcy, go get that Walmart pool! You don't even need the huge one for you and the grands. You can normally pick up a ten foot one for $75 or less. Check Kroger and Walmart. All you need is a level area. GO FOR IT!

Lunch? I had a cold hot dog....

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)

Coulda been redneck sushi, that cold hot dog...It all depends on the presentation. LOL http://www.bigoven.com/pics%5C050807022506.jpg

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

OMG! Redneck sushi?? You are warped. LOL

New Madison, OH(Zone 5a)

LOL Kimberley!! That pic is too funny!!!

I wish all the missing folks could have been there. I got a dmail from Morph today, and she had just seen my dmail, otherwise would have been there.

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)

Oh, rats! It would have been great to see Morph!

Here's my group shot (doggone it, Melissa...peek your head out, woman! LOL)

Hillsboro, OH(Zone 6a)

I'm gonna get Morph! I told her about the Round Up in March. I guess I should have sent a reminder. :( I'm been a total mess lately trying to keep up with everything. I think I'm winning though. Ahem.

Sue, you can come here any time! Just give me a heads up. We are almost always home on Sundays. Maybe you could come on a Saturday, spend the night and hang out Sunday.

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)

When this weather isn't soooo sticky and hot, we plan on coming down and camping out (just not near the chicken tractor, LOL!!!).

I need help to name everyone. I know I am getting names mixed up on a few folks. Melissa or someone who knows, can you Dmail me so I can get the right names with faces in the group photos post? I know I need names for many of the friends and family that came along, too.

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

OK I seem to have my Photo Program issues solved.

So here's a few shots I took.... up to dinner.
Those and Robyn's I'll do tomorrow.

For those who couldn't make it I'll start at first light and work out.
