Hi Jennifer and Mercer Plant Swappers,
Just saying hello to all my friends I left behind at the Mercer Plant Swap when we moved to Austin last year. I have joined the Austin/San Antonio Plant Swap that meets just south of Austin in Spring and Fall. It is much smaller, but lots of fun. Plant swaps are really catching on. Miss you all.

I am so excited....this year I will have some things to trade! Lol... right now I know I will have:
daylily 'Baja'-a few fans
hibiscus seedlings-callyphyllus, october rose, red hardy, pink dinnerplate, red and white tx star
hardy mum-don't remember the name of this, very pretty blooms
bromeliad-not hardy but pretty pink and purple blooms
some brug cuttings, rooted
Who knows what else I'll get dug and potted up by then.
Looking for variegated, brugs, bromeliads, begonias.
beachplant....what kind of bromeliad do you have?
Kim, I'm not sure which ones I'll be bringing. I've got to get out and divide them up.
I'd appreciate if you could keep me in mind when you divide those. I have a stump I am hoping to mount some bromeliads and such on in one of my beds.
lots of brugmansias; friendship dkd, pink favorite, unnamed white, miss anna, charles grimaldi, & dr suess.
1 unknown plumeria.
1 variegated nasturtium, alaska.

i'm looking for variegated iris, anything variegated, & double brugs.
Does anybody want yellow irises if so I will dig some for the swap. Allen
Kim, do you have any BAJA daylily fans left? I am interested in trading for a start of this one. Anyone interested in any of the plants on my list, please email me to see if I have starts/divisions available. I am primarily interested in named daylilies, LA iris and tall bearded iris.
EEEK! This is beachparty weekend!! I'm not even sure if I'm off yet or not. The schedule here is really screwed up. I am going to do my best to get there. For those of you who don't know beachparty weekend is a huge traffic mess on the island. One year the people had bar-b-que pits on th CAUSEWAY and were cooking chicken! ON THE CAUSEWAY!!!
So if I do get off I hope I can get back on!
Wish me luck! If I can't make it I will be holed up in the house like usual.

Hey y'all, I did plan to attend, but hubby is severely ill and I won't be able to be there. Those of you wanting to swap for some of my stuff, maybe we can figure out something later.
Hey Plant Addict!! I see you got posted. Good deal.
Have fun everyone, I will be thinking of you and wishing I were there!
I WISH I could come, everyone! I wrote it on my calendar last month but then something else came up that I really need to attend. It sounds like y'all are going to have a GREAT time! I really hope this is an annual event because I want to try to come next time, and my hubby said he would be willing to tag along! Maybe next year I will have more to offer from my yard, too.
Report back next week and tell us how it went!
