If you weren't there, you should have been! The rains didn't keep the die hard swappers away and in fact the rains themselves dissipated soon after the swap began giving way to a pleasant overcast morning. Later in the morning it changed to sunny skies and everything went great. The swappers were very generous, some of whom were just giving plants away! There's a lot that can be said for the generosity of gardeners.
I came home with quite a few things all of which would be impossible to list but here are a few of the plants I'm excited to find.
Kerria, 'Six Hills Giant' Catmint, two other catmints - lower growing, Salvia Black and Blue (a hummingbird magnet), several varieties of irises, tiarella (foamflower), several herbs, two heirloom tomatoes: Mr. Stripey and another I can't remember (I really should write these things down!), and several other fun and exciting plants for the garden!
I'll show you what I came home with as I find locations for them in the garden.
Coming up this week: A landscape remodel of my parent's garden.
