(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

LK I Will make up a New thread for this SPRING -- FALL Plant swap won't be today but soon .

Elfie @ Goodwater,, AL(Zone 7b)

Goober and I will be doing a Gnome / Fairy Swap in June.

We will also combine it with the miniature garden swap at the same time.

Will add more details later.

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Kris, that sounds good, let me know when you get it ready.

Elfie @ Goodwater,, AL(Zone 7b)

Will do.

Kansas City (Joyce), MO(Zone 5a)

Easter is coming, anyone doing a swap?

When I retire I promise I will help host swaps.....

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

I was just Looking at the March calendar :) there is ST Patty's the 17th & Then Easter On SUN 31st
I would do the one for Easter if someone would do ST Patty's :))))

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Why not combine them Susie? Give them a choice to receive either Easter or St patties gifts?

Kansas City (Joyce), MO(Zone 5a)

That would be fun or you could mix what you put in the box.
Well on second thought you would have to have the box out before St Pats which I guess would be ok, or for those that are so late they could choose Easter...rofl.

Thank you, LK, for starting a new page for this year's swaps. This isn't necessarily one you need to add to the list, just wanted folks who are reading this thread and keeping up with it to be aware of our upcoming Spring Round-Up, three months away, and make plans to attend if at all possible.

I know I say it every year, but it really would be awesome and do my heart good to have any of you attend our Round-Up. I'd love nothing better than to meet more of you face-to-face. Timing this year is a bit early. This year we'll meet on Saturday, May 11th, firstly because the Shelter was filling up rather quickly, and secondly we would like to avoid a repeat of last year's horrid heat that hit the end of June. Weather permitting, Bev / Sundownr has kindly volunteered to host a Papercrete Workshop for anyone who'd like to participate. If not, she'll revert to a Miniature Garden workshop like many of us enjoyed last year.


(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

I'm Also Haven my yearly ROUNDUP SAT JUNE 1st http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1293309/

this is our 8th yr for getting together .

Victoria Harbour, ON

Both sound like fun...

Elfie @ Goodwater,, AL(Zone 7b)

Cindy has posted her birdhouse / butterfly / bat house swap.

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Come on down, Betty. We'd love to have you attend.

I have lived vicariously though several of your annual Plant Swaps in the Park, Susie, and am going to surprise you one of these years. Won't be this year though since I think Manda's RU is going to be held on June 1st. Either then or June 8th.

Thanks for the heads up, Elfie.

For those who would like to participate, here's the link to Cindy's 6th Annual 3-B House swap. It's always been a good one and popular too.


(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

How about the FROGGIE SWAP this year

Elfie @ Goodwater,, AL(Zone 7b)

I want to go to one of Susies park swaps too. But sadly not this year for me too. Fruity we should rent a big bus and take a bunch of folks and go together..LOL

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Long day and just logged on before heading to bed soon. I agree, Elfie. We could name the bus Dave's Express...lol
Faye mentioned a bus a while back where we could tour the Country and stop by to see our gardening friends. Always thought that was a good idea and boy how quickly those seats would fill up. OH the gabbing and singing that would go on counting down the miles!

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

sure would be a fun trip if we didn't have to sleep on the bus :) Unless there was HID-A-BEDS :)

Victoria Harbour, ON

In my younger days as recreation coordinator I took groups of seniors south, we rented a large rv with plenty of seating, each night we would find a hotel..we would stop wherever and whenever..saw a lot of country..those were the days...could see that happening this way...

Actually Debbiedaisy and I did something similar about 5 years ago..got to meet a lot of our dg friends..

Tell me when the bus leaves

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you all know that I sent a message to Chris/chriscampbell. I asked her where she has been, as we all missed her here. She replied...

Hi Linda, No I let my membership lapse and haven't gone back yet. I'll be back eventually but probably under a different name. Tell everyone I said hi. Hugs, Chris

Victoria Harbour, ON

Ahhh, sure do miss her

Elfie @ Goodwater,, AL(Zone 7b)

Chris Campbells birthday is today,, just sent her a happy birthday there. I miss her too.

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

She should have received my surprise today, too. Miss that girl.

Mountain View, CA(Zone 9b)

Been thinking of her today, too. She and another friend of mine have the same birthday and are both named Chris :) We joked about them being twins!

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

That's neat, Michelle.I remember teasing Chris she missed being a leap-year baby by one day, and oh my gosh how she could have fudged.

Cutlerville, MI

I am so excited for all the swaps! Is Chris OK? I enjoyed chatting with her during swaps! Have a good night!

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Sand Springs (Tulsa), OK(Zone 7a)

Hello LK and all. Sorry I have been MIA for several months and didn't get the February and March swaps that I did last year. I had good intentions, but just didn't happen.

Put me down for the rock swap in October. That is always a fun one and I have several rocks gathered up that are interesting shapes.

I hope there will be some interest in it for this year.

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Hey Crit, glad your back with us! I put you at the top, just post a link when you get it ready.

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Well look what the cat dragged in.

Kansas City (Joyce), MO(Zone 5a)

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

NOW OPEN, come and check it out!

Greensboro, NC(Zone 7b)

Thanks for keeping us on the straight and narrow, LK. ;)

I came looking to remind myself whether the Uglee Mug swap was in May or June. Ha ha - I can't wait!


Sand Springs (Tulsa), OK(Zone 7a)

Thanks gals! I'll try to drop around more often. Laptop crashed and if I set in the office chair at the big PC too long, my back screams at me. Have a herniated disk above my fusion and it is impinging on the L3 nerve. Have a feeling it is going to cut into my garden work this year. A bunch of the things I brought in have died as I was just not able to carry the water can from the kitchen to where they are very much. UGH!

Good news is I had my Social Security Disability hearing yesterday, and it seems favorable by the way the judge spoke. My representative said that same thing to me too. Now just have to wait for the 'official letter'. Keep me in your prayers.
