So far as I know it's set up for Oct. 22. Again if there is interest I'll send Pam...aka gingerlily...this way. This swap is held on the Fl/Al line in Florala.

Thanks for posting it gingin. We meet and swap plants for a couple of hours,then move to a local restaurant for lunch, door prizes, and talk, talk, talk. If you have never been to a swap, you really need to join us. It is sooooo much fun. You don't have to have a gazillion plants to join the fun, just come and see what it's all about and enjoy the comaraderie. If anyone wants info for an overnight stay, just ask. There are a couple of bed and breakfast places here and one tiny little motel, then there are more motels within twenty to twenty-five miles.

I plan to be there and will be bringing my usual collection of junk plants.I don't plan to post a list this time but there will be brugs,including some new ones,desert roses and lots of odds and ends.I am not looking for trades for these and not looking for many plants.I do need a good cutting of "Sam" if anyone has one to spare.That and some redbud, sycamore and poplar seedlings would complete my wish list this year.Still trying to cut back here.

Not to worry, JT...you will not be the only one there Rolling on the floor laughing Without going "over there" and counting, I'm guessing about the same number as were there in the spring. Nothing more was said about a different site...so to the regular site is where my jeep is taking me. Perhaps Pam deceided to wait and discuss it over lunch and get input from everybody. See ya tomorrow! Smiling

Hurray! Smiling Smiling hopefully folks will see the activity on this thread and check it out. Need to generate intrest on ATP for spring as well as other swaps. Maybe by then there will be an actual forum just for swaps/get togethers where we can post. BTW...you have mail in case you didn't already see it
