We had a great time, now here are the pics! Anybody else who has pics, just add them on. (Give me a little time, I have 32 to post!)
1 – It all started at Milberger’s Nursery.
The San Antonio Nursery Date in pictures
15 – Susie (calalily) caught up with us, it took a little longer to drive all the way from Bayview (!!!) than they thought. Man, that was a long drive for you, but I’m so glad you made it. It was so great to meet you and your family! (Everyone, look at her vintage Dave’s Garden t-shirt! Only a handful are know to exist!)
COOL photos, maggiemoo!!! Great to actually "see" some of you! =) And, wow, Dave's, like, 12!! ;-)
Nice to see everyone, thanks for taking & posting pics for the rest of us!!
Thanks for sharing the photos, Maggie. You did a great job. We can look back at them with fond memories. The yellow rock rose is Pavonia (Pavonia spinifex). Or it could be Pavonia praemorsa if it changes color from yellow to apricot to an orangish red by the end of the day.
The one with the "huge bloom" is princess flower which is a Tibouchina, but I don't know which one it is. Did I give someone a small princess flower? ... the heat has muddled my brain.

Maggie was threatened with pictures from my stash of yesterday if one of me with open mouth appeared. I see my poker bluff worked ;->
Thanks, Maggie, for all the great pictures and the even better time you made yesterday!
Folks, if you ever get the chance to spend time with any of these folks do yourself a huge favor and take it!!
Hazel, yes, you gave me a small princess flower. Will it someday be a huge princess flower like that? Thanks for the cosmos, also!
LOL!! Kip e-mailed me earlier, Amelia called him this morning, she discovered that she has two of my plants! I just talked to her, wonder if I would ever have noticed they were missing?!
I told Amelia to be sure and post on this Forum that she's here, so we can greet her properly. She said she will probably use Amelia as her username. I'm glad she's joining, she's a really neat person!
htop, you gave me a princess flower also. It's doing very well, although it hasn't bloomed. My brazilian plume has bloomed though.
Maggiemoo, thanks for the pictures. I knew you would do a good job. Did you have any time to shop?
What did you guys buy?
Maggie, mine have grown very quickly and 2 blooms have just now opened. You are welcome.
Mary Lee, I am glad yours is doing well. It should start blooming any time now. Usually mine bloom during the last part of June. Did you like the blooms on the Brazilian plume? I just love them. As the plant grows larger, the blooms will increase in size. After the bloom fades, pinch it off or clip it off right at the base if you have time. It will make new blooms at the place where the old bloom was fairly quickly if you do this.
This is a closeup of the one I gave you two. Check out the other photos of it.
