Whew, just returned from the swap!!
Thankfully the rain held off until most of the swapping was finished. My car is full of new plants that need to be planted and potted. A few of us stuck around to clean up and to welcome two folks arrived late. We cleaned up the trash, recycled the pots and trays, consolidated the leftover plants into one place because some people will arrive later and are free to pick up plants.

(After I get it all planted/potted I'll make a list so you can see what I picked up.)

Gee was in Savanbah a few weeks back. I am glad folks bring things without knowing the exact name ...that would be my hesitation....not wanting to swap something I can't identify with certainty.
Don't squat with yer spurs on!

People try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved

I could have asked for the identification; most folks at the swap are happy to talk about their plants. But my time was limited so I didn't spend much time chatting. When I bring plants to the swap I almost always label each with the botanical name and one common name (to avoid having to answer so many questions).
