    Sorry I'll miss the garden stroll on Friday, but I'll be over sometime on Sunday to see if there's anything left.

    I'm looking forward to meeting everyone. My garden (an appitizer to Ricky's) is only 3 years old, but I'm making decent progress! I'm trying to get some more of my crotons in the ground this weekend. If you've been to Rick's, I'm about 3 minutes away. Directions are comming. I'll have some drinks (non-alch:() for everyone., the foods a little later. :D

    Alcohol and food? Don't they go hand and hand with croton tours? I heard a little alcohol brings out the color in crotons.:) Definitely looking forward to visiting your yard.
