    Rob,

    I mentioned earlier this year, that November would make 2 years since it was held at my yard. I would be more than happy to host it again. I need some "serious" feedback though. Especially from some of the west coast members. Lee, Keith, Connie, Phil and Ray, how about it?

    I need another year for my garden to "mature", but I'll go to Jeff's any time!

    Jeff-

    Anytime but: 24 July: speaking on crotons at Sunken Gardens
    10-16 August: judging a stampshow in Richmond, VA

    Pick a date and I'll drag some of these west coast folks along.
    I already told Lee I can host a meeting in Sept, Oct or Nov.

    Jeff,
    What about doing yours in maybe august? and phils in November?
    this way we dont have the suspense of waiting until november for two good garden tours, can have one only a month away, the other farther away! I know your yard is ready for it.

    Sounds like a plan. Let's do it regardless.

    Hey Guys...and Ladies

    OK, I think it's time to stop talking about a Tour amd make it happen.

    As we said in the newsletter, send us an email with your proposed date to have a Croton Tour. We can coordinate via email (as in the past). I think August would be a good time for a meeting, and we can have one in Sept also. How about it, Rick?
    We just need to know what dates and times, so we can do a sendout to all the members...........

    I don't object to hosting another tour, but August really dosen't work for me. That's next month, and I just feel with all my airlayers being removed, my crotons won't look their nicest and need some time to grow out.

    I checked the Coral Gables Library that has a decent croton collection as a potential meeting site. Due to the cold weather, lack of mulching and fertilizer, the collection has declined a great deal within the last year. I think the irrigation system is no longer workig as well. I guess government budget cuts may be the culprit.

    :( Rob just invite me when you and Jeff do your next croton safari. Looks like no meeting is in the works. Perhaps a pilgrimage to Dr. Frank Brown's place?
