    The Croton Heads began arriving at my place around 9:00. This was a tour of my garden, then to Ricky's for a tour, lunch & the world famous croton auction. While explaining this and that, I got a little busy & forgot to take pictures at my house:rolleyes:. After everyone left I quickly took a few before heading over to Ricky's around 11:00.

    When I got to Ricky's everyone was scattered around the garden or perusing the auction crotons. After touring Ricky's fabulous garden a fabulous BBq lunch was inhaled. The abundance of desserts vanished soon after:p. After a lot of "could be's", "looks like a's" & "I don't knows", the auction was up next.
    Mike (Bullwinkle) was our auctioneer & it seems like everyone somehow left with more crotons than they brought:rolleyes:.
    It was a pleasure having everyone visit & if you couldn't attend you're welcome to stop by for a tour anytime, just PM me.;)

    Great photos of what looks to have been a great meeting. Who's growing the Raphia farinifera, Ricky or Randy?

    Kip, Here are a few pics of & from the patio. I wanted the largest "free form" patio that would fit, without disturbing the plantings.:eek:
