Has anyone made any plans for or set up a swap in either place?

We always have a Ft Worth Swap in autumn & in spring, but we haven't set the date yet.

The Spring Swap is usually early to mid-April, depending on what else is going on in the area (if there's a charity walk at the Zoo or big hoo-hah at the pavilion near the Zoo, we wouldn't be able to find parking!)

Brenda makes the reservations for the pavilion-
she's famous at the Parks offices!

Brenda, have you had any thoughts as to the date yet?

Nope. I'll call my buddy at parks tomorrow morning and set dates are/are not available. Will let you know, then we can decide.

Yay!

Other people in other places might "know" that spring is on the way when they see robins or when the snow melts or some such, but *I* know spring is on the way when Brenda starts bugging the FW Parks Dept!

Yay!

Yep - the guy's name is Eddie and when I call I just tell him it's the crazy plant swappers and he knows right away who it is.

There are bound to be enough of us in the Dallas area to have a swap. I've been to one in Louisiana before and it was so worth every minute! I'd be willing to dig up lots of stuff to share. Anybody good at organizing???

lynnmariep86,

I believe that "barefoot_in_texas" already has this by the tail. See her posts above.
I certainly am up for it. The swap not the organizing,
I live south of Waco and have no idea on what the processes are up there.

Sylvia:

One friend of mine says that she knows spring is here when her cat starts bringing live sacrifices of bunnies to her backdoor.
