Ahhh! Kris and I can finally relax. We had a great time at the swap but were sorry to have to swap and run. We really wish we could have stayed to chat and visit with you all. Next year should be better.

The long road trips were safe. Our neice and her family were very happy we made the trip down for her graduation party. Glad her sister doesn't graduate for 3 years yet.

The plant sale was our best year yet. Thanks to all who sent plants home for it. It feels great to have it out of the way early. Now I can enjoy the rest of the summer doing my own gardening. If any of you made it up for the sale, I'm sorry I didn't get to say hi. Those crazy folks think I am the resident gardening expert and send all the questions my way. If they saw all the weeds in my gardens they would think again.

Um I really think the shade is the best place for the ginger. I had it there and it really thrived!!! I am not sure about the September swap for me. Will have to see what transscribes!!! Thanks everyone my new plants look great and all are doing well! Ronna
