Plant Swap June 7 08 Pictures!

Hastings, MI(Zone 5b)

If you know who you are, please sign your name below. LOL.
Plants do not have to sign in.

This is from the lovely lovely plant swap in freeport mi, the
gazebo was cool and delicious, facilities were human and
clean, tons of tables and room, gorgeous quiet pretty
surroundings, all you could ask for!
easy drop off and pick up, just drive right in to drop and pick
up, cars parked right close. Michaganers do not want to walk.
unless they are doing "dunes".

only in michigan, do we have tablecloths for our plants.
i brought and ironed one of my pretty yellow wedding gift
tablecloths and table to set off my plants, but someone
had beaten me to the punch! Tablecloths there already!!! LOLOL

Almost everything was labeled, and healthy. Not an infested
typhoid mary in the bunch. It was a pleasure. We had a
professional Master Gardener there with us, complete with
books and papers and advice. I did ask her about rose planting
depth arguments in Michigan, she was stymied! LOL.
Thats Michigan!

There was one point where someone was swapping a runner
bamboo (NOT a member of DG btw, and everyone was
vomiting and screaming and making hex signs at her and her
phyllostachys/bambusa nigrides whatevers) OMG. I thought
this poor woman would start crying from all the finger pointing
that was going on!, we weren't that hard...but noone
took any of her bambusas!!! LOL. She,herself, told us it was
a runner and that she had trouble with it popping up in far
away places!!!! There goes Michigan! covered in bamboo.

so, I will have a few more pix to post here, and everyone
can tell who they are and talk about how everyone looks....
