    Jeff,

    I think Connie took photos. It was a small meeting but the hosts were very gracious. The most unusual crotons for auction were Shirley Temple, Rose Charmer (Charmer sport) and Captain Kidd. If I recall correctly, the highest bid was about $20 for the Shirley Temple and Phil's Thomas Edison.

    The garden is located in Lakeland which can get pretty chilly in winter. That said, there were a few large Avocado trees around so it may be just warm enough to support a long term croton collection.

    It was a great meeting. Everyone had a good time. I had emailed some pics to Rick to post yesterday since I'm still very new to this. However, since I uploaded the Fishbone pic with success, let's see if I can get a couple posted here. They aren't the best pics, but better than nothing. Right?
