RE: Plant Swap...

I'm glad they figured it out too.  Now if I can just get them to do another
plant swap late in May when more things are up around here....  This year
they asked folks to label their contributions  well, but that doesn't mean
the attendees comply.  It really does help if folks give a bit more info on
their plants; you are so right.  The swap started at 10:05 and was done by
10:15 a.m.  Tzeitel just called and said she just finished putting a new bed
with what she got from the swap.  I'd better find my way over there a little
later this evening and take a look.

Bonnie, I'm glad those who run the swap finally came to their senses.  You
always had problems there.  I don't understand people who think they can
swap plants and not bother to label.  They don't have to put everything on
the label, but at least a color like 'Dark Red Daylily' rather than just

Sounds like you've got some digging to do.
