    For anyone planning on bringing chicks, you might want to set your eggs by May 16th to allow them time to get eating and drinking before the event. Depending on the weather you may want to provide heat as well if they are very young. I'm not sure if there are available electrical outlets.

    Do bring - chairsfor you
    Something to provide shade (especially if you bring birds), as well as food and water for them.
    Sturdy cages for critters.
    A dish to pass, and something to drink.
    A small something for the door prize giveaway
    Donations to cover the cost of the pavilion are welcome
    Folly's place will bring a net for stray birds [​IMG]

    Anyone interested in green ash seedlings? Green ash Fraxinus pennsylvanica Marshall have been resistant to the emerald ash borer.

    Let me know and I'll pot some up for CS17.

    I would consider it but quite honestly the last thing I need right now is another thing that needs to be watered, fed or otherwise taken care of.

    Does that mean that I can't move in with you?

    All the ash trees here are dead!!! I'm not sure what varieties they were though. I will have Belgian d'Uccles, white Chanteclers, and maybe others, and could bring lilacs too. Mary
