Who's a'comin'??

We'd like an estimate so we can plan how much food, etc, to bring, & also to give some of our new members an idea of how much stirring around there's likely to be.

Can you make it?

Chime in here!

RE: wanted: fw swap roll call!

Please Note that I now have passion vine couldn't wait and bought some about two weeks ago LOL
But I'm still up for the surprises = )

Anyone looking for old organic gardening books in trade for plants?

RE: wanted: fw swap roll call!


I am going to try to make it. I think my husband is occupied that day, so I can get away (haha). I have lots of WS babies. I can bring pasta salad and sodas/cups/ice.

I'm looking for low maintenance, idiot proof bush roses that I can mix in with my borders, monkey grass and anything else (I'm easy!)

By the way, Sylvia, the paprika yarrow you swapped with me at the iris tour/swap is blooming its little head off!! I just finished getting everything planted that I got from that swap!

I look forward to seeing you again, seeing Weldon again for the first time since the January 05 Starbucks get-together, and meeting the others. I may have a couple of mystery hosta for Weldon, but if I do, they will be run of the mill types. Maybe he'll see this and let me know. I grew them from seed last year from a seed swap, so it will be a surprise! I have't checked to see if they have emerged yet.

Can you post directions for those of us who aren't familiar with the FW area?



RE: wanted: fw swap roll call!

Glad the yarrow is blooming, Lea!

I think I have monkey grass somewhere, I know I have one pot of variegated, about 5 or 6 or 7 little teeny ones in one pot.

Maybe Venessa or Weldon will have roses for you to swap:
They root the wonderful old-fashioned garden roses.

RE: wanted: fw swap roll call!

Well, count me out. My husband just announced that his nephew and "some buddies" were coming in at 10:30 tonight. I have no idea how many buddies are "some buddies", but 23 year olds usually travel in packs, don't they?

Sorry everyone. I guess its the Supreme One telling me I don't need more plants(haha). I'll miss seeing all of you.
