mgood4u(z6-PA)February 1, 2006

Hello Hortiholics! It is almost springtime. I can't wait! Although the winter has been very mild, it will be soooo nice to see the Daffodils again, especially the new ones I planted.

Let us know about your goodies here on the thread (as ususal). Can't wait to get back into plant trading with you guys again. I got enough seeds for 20 gardens! lol.

Happy Valentines Day!!!!!!!!

I received my January box from Julus today. In it was a Banana Nut candle, a metal patriotic welcome sign, a ceramic rabbit jar, and a wind chime. Thank you very much, Julus!!! Treasa

Hi all. Got back from my warm and toasty vacation in Arizona last weekend. I've never seen so many beautiful days in a row! Guess that's why they're having a drought out there. I'm finally getting a chance to hit the computer again. Three and a half weeks without it wasn't tooooo bad. When I arrived home there was a package from Erica that contained the following:Japanese beetle bait trap (these bugs are the demons of my garden..how did you know?),garden theme rubber stamps and palette guide, bath goodies, allium bulbs, garden magazines and CHOCOLATE! (Hope I didn't forget anything. Thanks so much. You made my return to winter a happier one.
Only a couple more weeks till SPRING!!! And I saw my first snow drops today. Have a good weekend, Barb

Looks like your pal made it back Erica.....lol! Sounds like a great trip.

Julus.......here we go again! I'll email your pal and see whats up. I am sure they will be on the way though. I'll be in touch.

Barb, I am assuming you mean Snowdrops (the flower)! I have my first Crocus up already....it's so exciting! Haven't seen the Snowdrops yet, I'll have to check on them. I only had a few so I hope they are still around!

Barb.....found some Snowdrops....yaahhh! It's so nice to see flowers!

Julus, I haven't heard from Tina yet, but what I have heard is that her DH was having some health problems. I am sure she will get back to us soon.

Tina...wishing your husband lots of luck and a quick recovery. Hope you are all doing a lot better!!!!!

Erica.....you always post the cutest pics. It really does brighten up the thread!

Seems like we haven't heard from some of us Hortiholics. I know we are down to a pretty small # though. Keep in touch everyone.

ONLY 2 MORE MONTHS TO GO AND IT WILL BE 1 YEAR ALREADY!!!!! yes, that's right all we have left to swap with our pals is March and April! My how time flys!

Sorry the delay - I had trouble loggin on the garden website, weird.
Barb, I hope you had great holidays. I received the February package, what surprises. The ammonite is beautiful!! It makes you wonder and think how amazing nature can be. I found a special place for it. Thanks again for all the thoughtfullness you put in these packages.
Here we are waiting for another snow storm - no snowdrops or crocus in sight!! It's a good thing I have all the flowers at work. I can't wait to 'play' in the dirt again!!

I'm back. Julus I am truly so very sorry for being so, so late.
I am going to fatten up a big ol' box for you to hopefully make up for lack of time. I am so sorry.

I haven't heard anything from Carly since Christmas. I hope she is doing ok. I miss hearing from her!

Rick is doing SO much better. He is just now back to work full time, so I am trying to get completely caught up on everything.
Thanks for all the well sihes and prayers we received. You all are so wonderful.

I will post when I have your stuff ready and a conf. # Julus.

Thanks for everything!

Hey Tina, glad things are looking up! It's good to see you back! I can't remember the last time I talked to Carly now that you mention it. Have you gotten packages from her? That is odd. Hope she is alright. Maybe I'll give her an email.

I wish I knew something about Tammy (outapatience) also. I never did hear anything.

Erica-good idea about the theme for April. Bulbs are nice since it will be time for spring planting.

Let's take a vote. Do you guys want to do an April theme or have any suggestions? There are only seven Horts now! lol. So everyone has posted here now except for Carly. I think I will email her.

I talked to Carly and she is fine, just really busy since Christmas. Sounds like she could use some Calgon (remember that commercial?lol)

Tina~ she apologizes for the delay and is working in sending--but we you knew you would Carly! :)

No apologies needed! I just miss hearing from her ;-)
Hopefully we don't lose touch after this robin ends.
I am so happy to see spring trying to make it's way back here. The lilacs are budding out, and we have Robins!!! again. That is a sure sign of Spring!
I have all kinds of bulbs wakinig up, and bushes budding out. I love this time of year. Everything starts anew. Fresh air, babies popping up from their long winters nap. I just love it!

So glad to hear that Carly is doing good, and just busy as aposed (sp?) to something be wrong. I know what she means!
I want ya'll to know I appreciate every single one of you.

Dawn, thank you for hangin' out with us this past year. You have done an excellent! job of hosting and I am so proud of you!
Looking towards blue skies and green pastures!
Much Love,
