Pics from the Plumeria Society Sale
Here they are, photos of the Seabrook PSA sale at last!
The best word to describe the sale itself is INSANITY. You'd think this was some crazy addiction people were feeding or something. ;)
The Break, going for the few available shopping carts in the opening seconds:
I hope you all appreciate the precious moments of plumeria shopping I lost out on to take these pics because when they open those doors, IT IS ON!
Lots of trees too tall to carry in a car:
I'm not short and I had to stand on my toes to get shots of this unknown pink:
This was another unknown, sold before I got to it, with huge 4"+ flowers:
Raspberry Sundae was gorgeous in person and much bigger than expected:
Not surprising that these two Elizabeth Thorntons are siblings:
Lots of nice ways to display in pansy rings:
I believe these are Pu'u Kahea and Jeannie Moragne inflos:
This gives you an idea of how big Charlotte Ebert is:
Colors were intense with our Texas heat:
I left with one of these:
Everyone had to stand in long lines to pay:
They snaked around the corner:
Those people may look like mild-mannered gardeners, but actually they were ravening locusts of plumania, picking the sale tables clean by noon:
Thank goodness I pre-paid for my new Thornton Lemon Drop or I would've been out of luck in that feeding frenzy!
She's a 40" by 40" 14-tip beauty! Intense yellow flowers blooming on seven tips:
Much bigger than my other purchase, Heirloom:
Hope they get along.
