That would be nice beavercreek ...hubby and I go on Friday, Saturday, Sunday drives looking for wild flowers and then come home and look them up to see what they are...so a drive to Baker would be nice!! ... Is there anything in particular you are looking for?...we're just kinda getting started so may take some time to gather seeds on some of ours or root others...most of our plants are in the baby stages and a few we are waiting on to seed out...we do have some succulants tho that flower and are easy to root if we take some pieces off of them...we may have some seeds left over too from our planting the last couple of years, not sure if enough to really consider a trade but any I have spare of you're welcome to ...oh and also since it's so close and we wouldn't have to worry about it dying in the mail we can possibly divide some root balls of a plant or 2 we have...cassia alata (yellow candlestick bush) is one of my favorites but it hasn't seeded yet...we've divided it by root before and planted it and sometimes they live and sometimes they don't...if you're interested it may be worth a try

moonfire, sure, would like some of the rooted cassia and whatever you care to share when you come tour my gardens. Just PM me when you plan to be in the area. I've already invited vettelover to come over. Anyone else in the area is welcome too. Bet you'll find something you like here to trade for.

I understand, it is so miserably hot and humid that I can't work outside very long. This weekend is out because it's a celebration of my husbands first flight of his homemade airplane but there's no hurry. I'm retired and home most all the time.

Hi!! I'm from the Dothan, AL area. Would like to get to know people in this area and Fla. too. Moonflower would be interested in the rooted cassia also. Sorry, haven't been able to list my flowers for trade yet. But I have started some Crown of Thorns, from Isreal, that a friend brought back from her visited to Isreal, maybe you would like a cutting from that. Would have to meet somewhere, wouldn,t want to chance it dying before you get it...
