the glads in the container.. was a product of me being lazy and not wanting to dig a hole .. don't know how it will turn out.. but couldn't do anymore digging in the garden

Is there such a thing as to many photos? I don't thinks so. Hurray!
I just got home fro BVS to find these great photos. Thank you so much Allison
Your doing a plant swap? Is it just local?
On my way to post a photo of my new coleus, Red Head in the Coleus Forum. Hurray!

it looks great too!!

they are plastic.. and cheap.. christmas tree shop find!!.. think each set was $4.00 on clearance.. I scooped em all up!! I like that I can add a layer on as the toms grow taller.. and if one doesn't perform so great it doesn't have the extra height.. and I can use the ring for a better plant

my house is not swap Ready.. wish it were.. but I am heading up to NH on sat for a DG swap.. it's a hike.. but I love the company of the NE people.. such a great group.. they always make it worth while to travel

I've never gone to a swap except in Arizona...and I'm not shy AT ALL....but is it weird at first or do you already have people you know?

the 1st swap I went to ... was in Massachusetts.. I brought my honey's mom with me.. and it was very odd.. and I am bad with names.. doesn't help even with the tags .. remember a face forever.. names.. never.. but that was 4 years ago maybe.. and been to 3 swaps since.. so we are all good friends now!!!.. funny how the online relationships grew after meeting in person .. like a big family now.. just having a normal yearly gathering .. and I can say at the past few.. there was not one person I was uncomfortable with.. not so much the 1st one out.. I had to bite my Jersey tongue a few times at that one.. and walk away.. one nasty that kept pushing my buttons

I almost didn't want to go to the next one because of that person.. and I am glad I went anyway and ignore that one .. bonds grew a lot that trip

I was worried my mouth would get me in trouble if .. I won't hold back if I see someone being picked on or put down.. had enough of that in my own life.. not going to happen.. and figured everyone would think I was off my rocker for loosing it.. if I could describe the situation I would.. but won't.. I could imagine everyone turning on me.. because of the situation.. but a mean person is a mean person.. don't care what the background is.. I will step in if I see that nonsense .. and soooo sooo glad I was able to distance myself from that person.. and glad I didn't have to worry about it the next trips
