HAVE: Spring Swap & Iris Garden Tour, Southwest Dallas Co Area
Remember Bobbie Mason, "the eccentric I aspire to be", the one who tossed iris rhizomes instead of candy at spectators at a parade? (She came to the FW autumn swap at Trinity Park.)
Welllll, her extensive iris garden should be in full bloom by April 1, so she's hosting a combination Garden Tour/Garden Swap for us!
I've seen Bobbie's irises at the raggedy tail-end of the season, & they were gorgeous then; they'll be knock-outs in full swing!
The gardens are in Red Oak, just south of DeSoto off I-35E & Ovilla Road (about 6 miles south of I-20 & I-35E intersection).
Starts at 10 AM, goes til we all go home.
Same kind of set-up at at previous swaps, with the addition of a potluck luncheon (a practice I saw at another group's swap, it worked great):
Bring your plants, seeds, tools, garden art, books, magazines, pots, decorative items, anything you want to trade.
Pre-trading is a good way to be sure you can get something you really want, & encourages people to come.
Post lists of what you have, what you want, etc.
Spouses & children welcome.
Please leave pets at home (don't know about yours, but mine, even though they're usually well-behaved, would be sure to galumph through somebody's tender plantings!)
