2nd Annual Garden Exchange

It official. It has become a tradition and one of the best days of the gardening year. Eagerly anticipated by attendees. Some folks plan weeks and months in advance what they will bring to share. This year we had a huge variety of vegetable starts and ornamental plants.

I scored French and Spanish Lavender, a large Nandina, lots of flowering ground covers for my new raised bed fence.

There were lots of Day Lillies, Raspberries, Strawberries, and Rhubarb. Also on offer were seeds and gardening books. We sustained ourselves with homemade cookies, plenty of coffee and mimosas. You gotta keep your strength up.

It's a great chance to catch up with gardening friends, meet new ones and chat about the summer gardening season we have been looking forward to all winter.

That sounds like a lot of fun. I would like to find something like that in my area. Yay for lavender...I'm growing some English lavender for the first time! I've never heard of Spanish lavender, but I'll have to look into it.
