Pictures from the San Antnio, TX plant swap

I thought y'all might like to see pictures.

It was sooo much fun.

Notice that there is a picture of Bossjim. I was the only one that knew he, his wife and cousin were driving over. So it was fun to see the surprised look on folks faces when they realized who he was.

Some of the others lurk here, but I think Jim and I are the only ones in this group who post.

A couple funny things happened during the door prize drawings Jim's cousin told him to draw her name and he did.

When I called her name she thought I was kidding. She was glad to have witnesses, that way no one thought "the fix was in".

There is a young lady who brings her darling mother, and this time her cousin. The first name I drew was her's. The 2 or 3 later her mother's and then towards the end her cousin's. We really gave her a hard time about that, since it was her basket we used to draw names from.

Me too, I'm always interested in how things are done elsewhere. I wish we had one of those swaps around here, I'm sure it would go over big time.

Susie and Annette, why don't you start a swap? Either with friend, neighbors or church. Even if it's just 4 or 5 people. It will grow each year as the word gets around.

It really is fun.
I think there were about 20. Almost everyone brought several boxes of plants. I know that my son made several trips with my green dump wagon.
There were 8 tables covered with plants and most had plants underneath and on the seats.
By the end of the swap you re beggin' people to take your left over plants so you don't have to take them home.
I know I had about 5 boxes of "new" plants.
