Swap Day

Saturday, 02 Jun 12 Partly Sunny 19°C / 66°F

Our annual swap was today and what a great day! It was supposed to be quite rainy and a high of only 16 degrees, but it turned out great. Sunny for the most part, no rain and a high of 19. Lots of wind though.
Anyway, it was so nice to spend a few hours talking to fellow gardeners, eating good food (potluck), and of course coming home with a whole lot of new plants. It was a fun day.
t forgot my camera so no pics of the day but will take some of my new plants tomorrow. I got home and planted a few things before it started raining this evening. A lot more to plant and I am determined to get them in as quickly as possible so will have a busy week ahead.

    I wish that I could have made it – hopefully next year won’t be as busy this time of year. Sounds like it went really well. I can’t wait to see all of your treasures!

    I did get lots of great plants to add to the garden. Plant swaps are fun! mamabluestem-think about organizing one in your area.. Not just for the great plants but for the chance to meet and talk with fellow gardeners.
    rosemarie, I have taken a couple of pics, but not of everything. I will add more eventually.
    nickyn, please give it a try.it is a nice day and at the end, you get to go home with lots of new plants.

    Some of my new plants:
    bronze leafed canna, painted daisy, tall red leafed amaranth seedlings, san marzano tomato, two lilies—‘iceberg’ and ‘aphrodite’ brunnera ‘Jack frost’, hosta ‘stiletto’ mauve corydalis, a tan iris and several seedlings of different echinaceas (flamethrower, green envy, lucky star and a couple of others) grown from seed by one of our group and his daughter. oh ya and some redbor kale seedlings.
