WANTED: Ft Worth Spring Swap April 7!
Winter's still blowing, but it's really a last gasp:
the days are getting longer & sunnier, green plants are poking their heads out from under their mulchy "covers", & it's...
Time for the gardeners' version of "Spring Break"!
The Spring Swap meets every year at Trinity Park, across from the Ft Worth Botanic Gardens (very handy for those who still have the energy to take a turn through those gorgeous gardens after the get-together!)
More than just a swap, it's an opportunity to put faces to names, to visit our compadres, & to exchange garden wisdom as well as those things that pass from hand to hand.
We share food that ranges from snacks to "real food".
(gotta keep up our strength).
I noticed that the San Antonio Swap group is having prizes & want to put it before the congregation:
Y'all wanna have prizes?
At the SA swap, each person brings something extra to be given away, such as a plant in a nice planter, books, crafts, etc.
All the items are placed together, & tickets are drawn to give them away.
Our get-togethers have always been so loosely structured that getting everybody together to award/draw for/distribute prizes has been, well, it just ain't happened.
But if the traders decide to have prizes, I *am* working on an old-fashioned-looking ceramic bowl, destined to hold a wonderful new (to me) burgundy/bronze/green sedum...
or I could bring an alligator.
He's cute, he's small, & he's ceramic too.
