Accent Nursery - this breaks my heart. Bought a lot of stuff from them over the past few years. Fiddlewood, duranta, jamaica caper, buttonwood, ligustrum, cassia, irises, passion flower, etc.

It was starting to look tired the last time I was there, so some of the plants may need to be rejuvenated. Lots of variety - natives and some exotics.

Very likely to be a crowd - every time they had a sale it was crowded.

If my place wasn't full. I'd be there. Leslie was a great help to me when I was starting out - I wish her the best in the future.

Irma, that was nice of you to post this. What is a "neighborhood tom-tom"? I researched the term, of course, but could only come up with GPS and drum meanings.

Thanks for the edumacation,

Wow...there's some really NICE jades and succulents I wouldn't mind getting my hands on. Its a 3 1/2 hour drive for me R/T or I would go. Some really pretty Jades...its a shame I won't be able to take advantage of it. Wonder if they would ship me a couple of them,lol...

Thanks for posting Irma!

I went today at 11am. They were not busy. The woman owner (seller) was there and very helpful. Spent more than I had planned, of course. So much is left. They think will be open next weekend, too. I got Brugmansias, firebushes (see my separate thread/question) they had both types and 2 sizes 8 for $10 and 3 for $10), succulents, yellow bulbines, saucers for bird/butterfly baths, a petrea blooming, and, for $5, a Mary L. Proctor (http://www.missionarymary.com) delightful, small tin cutout of a dancing blue frog reading, "Let a little mercy in my garden". Inside, are a few antiques, collectibles, large rusty iron furniture ($125, up but maybe were pre-sale prices), for $25 a large colorful Mexican ceramic wall scounce I guess for fitting with an electric light - seems perfect condition - an unusual bargain), plus odd & ends of bags and boxes of soil amendments and river pebbles. A room filled with tools that might be for sale.

Carol, our neighborhood tom-tom is what I call our Lakewood Estates Community Assoc. president's e-mails to those who want to get them (usually re lost cats & dogs or suspicious door-bell ringers).
