John -- You put on a rip-roaring event as usual. Thanks for keeping this thing going year after year. Loved all the food and company. Just looking over all my loot. Two plants tied for favorite scores: bottlebrush buckeye and Echinops bannaticus 'Star Frost' (thank you, anonymous donors).

Thank you, Kim for sharing the red hot poker!

Thanks, everyone!

Thanks everyone for coming! There was something special about this swap - I don't know what it was, maybe the right mix of new folks and old timers or maybe it was all because of Carla - hee hee hee (thanks for letting me pick on you during the bell dinging!!!)

It was a very auspicious first event for us. Thanks, John, for organizing it and your assistance by pointing out the people behind their Internet IDs. It was nice to meet in person a number of local gardening celebrities ;-) , including, but not limited to, yourself and Ralph.
