Swap Day

02 Jun 2012
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’ve never been to an actual plant swap but it sounds like a great deal of fun!

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.
