    Thank you so much Mike & Mike for hosting and organizing this event. It was terrific to see so many of the "usual heads" there, and to see new faces as well.

    We have a small presents on Facebook and got a nice mention and response. The screen shot is s.west to n.east off Mike's deck, beautiful shot. Our meetings are great fun and it might make us lesser crotonheads a little greeneyed but that is ok I got home a jammed a few more in the ground. It is wonderful to see the die hards and always a few newbees are welcomed with open arms. Thanks again to all for great food friendship and the M $ M show. Hope to see all again real soon.

    it was great seeing everyone and welcoming new faces.
    i want to thank all who came and keep the Croton passion 'growing'.
    The general sentiment is we all need to get together more often....i'm willing if our team is...to make this a annual event.

    Today is my first day back on this forum.
    I haven't logged in on this forum in many many moons. Sorry I missed the event. Were you able to get Moose to reappear???

    No Moose sightings, luckily I had a chance to see him at Jeff's Spring Sale. I think he only comes out of hiding once every few years.

    He was at Jeff's on the first Saturday when I went down this spring. He gave me some good advice as did Judy on what I should be buying. I was equally surprised to see him as it had been a while. I thought maybe he had disappeared to some Indonesian island to study crotons in the wild until he reappeared at Jeff's.
