WANTED: Black-Eyed Susans

Does anyone, by any chance, (preferably somewhere between Chestertown, MD and northern Silver Spring (or Burtonsville, Rockville, or Ashton)) have Black-eyed susans to spare that I could dig this saturday or sunday (july 29 or 30 i think)?

I know it's odd to request something so common and something I used to have tons of and give away, but, as a result of a series of unfortunate events, there is now a whole lot of nothingness where there used to be a huge clump of black-eyed susans and that just seems wrong.

(PS i really did move to maine a year ago but we still have the maryland house and i'm here for my summer job and i can't stand to have the maryland house's yard continue looking so sad)
thanks! -libby

I have a friend who has a ton of these. She was thinking of bringing them to the fall swap. Let me get in touch with her and maybe I can get you two together.

Hi Libby,
I haven't been around GW much lately I've been so busy, but I had to respond to you since you let me dig some of your BESs a few years ago. I remember I barely made a dent in them and you seemed a little disappointed I didn't thin them out more. Sorry to hear they have diminished. They were beautiful there.
I am in Laytonsville and you are welcome to come dig BESs or other plants that you might like. Everything is pretty crammed in my garden. It might not be the best time to transplant though since it is so hot and dry here. No rain.
Let me know if you want to.
