I only managed to take a few.It looks like we didn't have many people there but we did.In fact there was a pretty good crowd.There is a picture of Gordon's tent.Somehow I always pictured Gordon in a penthouse,not a tent.
The owner of the campground brought his plants in a front end loader.That's Pam making a rug in the background.Our youngest trader,Karoline,managed to get herself a rosebush and I think she is hooked.She wanted to know when the next swap was.

here's another picture of our host... we were very well cared for there... he'd planted and scrubbed for our arrival... sprayed for ants .. and as JT pictured.. arrived to the gathering with his fronnt end loader filled for our pleasure with plants... I gave him a TemptationXTemptation Passi.. and a few century plants.. and planted his lake edge with the summer poinsettas..
as usual I got as well planted as could be... thankfully mother has room for her things. as well as for some of mine... from home.. and others from the gathering...I'm going to have to find another outlet for a few dozen cactus.. by next year or so they will all be getting many dozens of their own babies

OH... his shirt didn't show up real well.. ... I'm sure he'd like me to post it....Here's the back of it he also has a 15' sign on the other side of the road also as a political outreach













oh

Wow - I'm really fussing at myself for not watching this thread..... BEFORE going to the swap ! Ya'll were just chatting away.
Anyway.... Lance and I had a BLAST... we are so excited about our new babies....I got some of Brenda's iris, Eileen's daylilies, Marsha's begonias and Sandy's Four Oclocks in the ground yesterday.... More to be planted asap......

Hugs,
Mary

We really did miss you , gin. Our youngest gardener (JT's granddaughter, Karoline) snagged a beautiful pink rose from Ken Hicks, our host. I'm not jealous though, cause I lucked up a few weeks ago when I went to remind him of the date for the swap and he gave me the same rose. He's a nice person.
