Annie doesn't have a thread yet? How bizarre!
I traded with Annie recently. She sent fantastic plants, packaged them very well AND sent very quickly.
She's also very fun to chat with. :O)
I give her 5 *'s! Yay!

I wanted to join the OBF Harvest swap, but as I had not yet completed a trade, I could not join the group. Without knowing me from anyone, Ann contacted me and offered to do a (I thought!) small, quick seed swap so I could join in the fun. Well, WOW!, just wow. I opened the mailbox today to find a bubble envelope filled with seeds for me. I can't wait to plant them. Thanks so much for the generous trade and the kind welcome, Anne.

I wanted to join OBF and start doing trades with the members in that group, and Annie reached out to me, not knowing me from Adam, and suggested we do a seed trade to get it done quickly so I could join in. Even though I did not have any seeds, she was very accomidating and let me choose a cutting and a plant baby to send out instead. In return, she sent WAY more than what I expected! 6 varieties of Morning Glories instead of the 1 variety I was expecting :) She is very generous and super friendly, not to mention she was super quick with shipping out the seeds :)
Thank you Anne for my surprise wishes the tourch, and gaillardia burgundy,, thanks so much Lisa
Regarding this year's 3rd annual Secret Santa Seed Swap:
From canyonwind (Annie): A really great card featuring a smiling Santa framed with Holly (looks a lot like the Coca Cola Santa), containg even more wonderful Black Pearl Pepper seeds (Bwahahahaha...love it, love it!) and Borage seeds (Another super culinary/medicinal, most commonly with blue star shaped flowers that turn pinkish when aged due to extended UV light exposure! Also reputedly a good companion plant for legumes, spinach, brassicas, strawberries and tomatoes. Culinarily tastes a lot like Cucumber) Years ago a good framily friend gifted Elly & I with a Borage plant for Christmas, but I haven't grown it since. How totally excellent, now, we're gifted with Borage seeds for Christmas! Thank you so very much, Annie! Wishing you-n-Yours the best this holiday season and always!!
Thanks for the great seeds in the Secret Santa Seed Swap
Annie adopted me from the newbies thread. She sent me an extremely generous amount of seeds. I can't wait to see them in my garden!!

Annie is a great trader and a great person! We have traded several times and she is one of the best...Thanks Annie
Canyonwind sent 4 new tomato seed varieties for the secret santa swap! Thessaloniki, Andrew Rahart's, Adventure, and Jersey Giant. I cannot WAIT to look those up! I am especially excited about Adventure. That sounds awesome! I also LOVE giant tomatoes so I'm excited about Jersey Giant. The other ones sound classic so I'm sure they will be delicious as well. Thank you so much for sending these and for being so generous!!!

Annie went so above and beyond for the April 2012 FOTESS "What Was I Thinking?" Swap that I can't even describe how wonderful it was. Her poem she wrote me brought tears to my eyes. Not to mention her thoughtfulness with everything she chose for my package.
Annie is without a doubt one of the sweetest people you could ever "meet" on the GW!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!

What can I say about Annie?
I was lucky enough to be one of the people that Annie sent to in the secret santa swap. She sent me 5 packs of commercial seeds. She is and always has been a very generous person.
If you get the chance to trade with Annie, I assure you, you will not be disappointed!
Participated in OBF December Grinch Swap and won the swap by Canyonwind. She is a gal with many surprises up her sleeves. The package was neatly packaged, wrapped, and organized. She was generous and kind to give more than she had to. That is the type of gal Canyonwind (Annie) is and you DEFINITELY WILL NOT be disappointed.
Annie, I so appreciate the seeds you sent me in this year's Secret Santa Swap! The Musa Zebrina is a magical touch for my "tropical" seeds on my wish list - thanks so much for taking the time to pull that out of your hat! And I love the tomato seeds, too.
Have a great garden this coming season!
I got a lovely card and seeds from Annie in the SS Swap. She is always a delightful swap partner and all 'round great gal!

I was lucky enough to be adopted as a "newbie" by Canyonwind. When I received my seed package I was just overwhelmed by her generous spirit. I will be able to do a serious garden with the amount and diversity of seeds that she sent. Annie, you are the best!
