I'll have to pass this month. I've got so much to do out in the yard, so much to catch up on, I'm not sure I could fit this in! Hopefully May will be better. :)

Here's a pic of Kindi- she's a very happy & smiley baby.

Bunny, congratulations. I have been watching for posts of baby's arrival and this is the first I have heard. She is beautiful. I would love it if you could post a picture of all the kids together. What fun you must be having.

Michelle, when does this plant bloom? Spring, summer, fall?

Margo

P.s. working on my wish list.

Ok, my first guess is Columbine, one of my favorite spring flowers.

Margo

Bunny, what a beautiful family. I am wondering how in the world you were able to get them all to sit still for such a great picture. Thanks for posting it. I know you are loving them every single minute. I had the five kids and wish I could get the earlier years back sometimes. I will say, even thought they are now 18-29, my life is not any easier, just different needs and demands. :0

Terrific Picture Bunny! I have trouble getting two to sit still for a picture, and usually SOMEONE is blinking, lol! Love it!

Hmmm, spring bloomer, 24 inches tall, light shade? I'm going to guess... Rose Campion?

Mellen, I can take May. It can be short and sweet, if that's okay with everyone? :)

Talk to you later!

Jeanne, the end of August and first part of September I/we will be on vacation with our son/dil/gd so will possibly be out of the loop then, too.

Hello,Lovely Ladies-I have been without my computer for some time & got a new one & having trouble getting my email fixed but can get the internet. I must say, I almost got the shakes from not being on line but it did help in getting other things done. Sorry that I can't join this month but at least I can check in to see what is going on! Congratulatons, Melissa. Tell me-is the new little one's name with a long i? I think it is a wonderful name & wondering where you came up with it. I know it will be copied when others see it!

Margaret~ Kindi is said like KEN-dee. Evlin is just like it looks, like saying Evelyn, but without the extra E in the middle.
Kindi is actually an African name, and Evlin is Celtic. I spend months scouring the internet & books for ideas for names with each baby. We actually only had Kindi picked out before her birth- we had a list of names to choose from for her middle name, but couldn't decide on one until she was born. We just went with what felt right at the time.

I am pleased to see the understanding on the weather. I have felt bad that I have not had the chance to get my box off and hate to wait til the deadline. I have just not had cooperating weather when I have the chance to get out in the garden. I know exactly what I want to put in the box so that isn't a problem. I do know that the longer I have to get the box done, the bigger the plant I send. :)

Thanks for the extension. I doubt I will need that much time but a little longer helps. Margo

Hi Everyone! Hard to believe April is almost over. But the sun and the rain and the warmer days have caused all sorts of things to just pop. every day, more and more things come alive. i have various columbines in several areas and they are just blooming like mad. every day, so nice to see more and more green fill in the spaces. i did notice that a peony plant did not make it they are leafing and there's a gap in the row!

april was a very busy month, sorry to miss this swap, but i could have never complied timely. is this going to go into may and may skipped, or does someone have may? hoping it's something i can commit to.

i was looking at this small hobby farm in south central virigina and i'm falling in love with the property ~~ it's a gardener's dream, some wonderful things already planted and established...fruit, nut and berry wise...someone devoted great care and vision.

Melissa, your family is beautiful. Thanks for sharing the picture.

Vina, snow....just when you think enough is enough, get on with the nice weather. we were having beautiful weather and then it got cold and rainy and windy. i'll take that, i was glad for not so much snow this year.

michelle, i dont believe paul is a member, i'll try to find the list shirley posted a few months back, but i don't recall his name. you are right, he must send first.

happy blooms everyone!

Christine - I sent my address, let me know if you do not get it.

I don't know why but I have not been able to get on GW and when it does connect me all the posts are last weeks....too wierd.

I have been sooooo busy but really glad for all the business. I took a vacation day yesterday to dig plants for market and I received a phone call from a lady wanting to come and look at my irises. When she came she brought with her a landscaping guy and wanted tons of plants. She said I could forget about going to market any longer that she would buy every thing I wanted to sale. Not sure if she was teasing or was really serious, we shall see.

Jen - Your box was mailed on Thursday. You should receive on Monday.

Hi Maryanne good to see you back with us.

Michelle you and Maryanne are right, Paul is not a member. I don't know if anyone in the group has traded with him or not. He must send first since he has joined our swap. I will re-post the members and who has the Month of May.

Very tired Shirley

The weather has started to turn a little nicer. Mid 50's today. Hopefully I'll be able to get my box tog. later this week. Taylor has her dance recital on Friday. She's so excited/nervous :) Going to be a very busy week.

Woo hoo, a digging kind of day and that is just what I did. I have Michelle's box packed, postage on and ready to be shipped tomorrow. Since she won't be back til Tuesday, perfect timing as I suspect it will be delivered by Thursday, maybe even Wednesday depending on where it has to go to get there. Have you ever noticed that sometimes are packages start out going in the complete opposite directing before it heads to where it is going? Anyway, I hope it all makes it there in good shape.

Vina, thank you again for taking May for me. I knew I had plans to be at my son's a couple of times in May, but now I may also be spending time helping out one of my sisters. N. had surgery this past Friday, and they found she has ovarian cancer. Dr. thinks he got it all, from what he could see, but she will more than likely be having chemo. I have offered to go help her out, and I am just waiting to see what happens. I was at the hospital on Friday with her hubby and daughter and then went back again today....about a 2.5 hr trip one way. Prayers would certainly be very appreciated.

Mellen, will be holding your sister in my prayers that all works out great for her. Good luck to her on her chemo.

My box will be off from the post office this afternoon. Just dropped it off so hopefully it will arrive by Wednesday.

Shirley, thanks for the great box:) I received it last night.
What a great mix. I have a spot where I can't grow anything due to the moisture that the iris will be perfect in!
Shirley sent japenese iris, good omen; hosts gold standard, lily dizzy, and one that starts with a g. Daff bulbs and hot pokers.
Thanks!

The post office sent verification that my box was delivered to Michelle today. I sure hope everything survived the trip. There was an extra little columbine that I doubt did very well but it came out with something else I dug up so it seems it wanted to go along for the ride.

Am anxious to hear how Michelle liked it.

Michelle, the pineapple mint was a long rooting without much growth but given it is a mint, I am sure it will come back to life. It is hard to kill a mint. I am sure as long as you soak all the plants roots, they should be o.k until you can get them planted. I know most are small plants but it is still pretty early in the season so not much is in full growth. I am sorry you are not feeling well. Hope you are back to normal soon.

Thank you so much Christine. I can't wait to see all the new blooms. I love Lupine and have a terrible time getting it to live so I'm hoping I can keep this one alive. Wish me luck.

Hi All,
I hope everyone has been well.
I video taped some garden stuff for the first time this evening. I mentioned Mellen in it because of a OBF swap from last year. I did four parts, and in part 1 is where I mention Mary Ellen.

Remy, just watched your first video and what a great idea. I enjoyed walking through your garden with you as well as your entertaining chickadee. I plan to go back and watch the others another day. Thanks for sharing.

Hey everyone!

Remy! Love your video. That lilac did look super tough to be blooming for being so little.

Michelle, So sorry to hear about your migraines! They are the worst!!
I received my package from you today though :D

In my package was:
Iris: Maid of Orange (LOVE IT!)
Iris: Batik...so pretty!
Aloe baby
Tropical Milkweed
3 mystery daylilies ( I can't wait to see them flower!)

Will be planting them tomorrow for my mother's day garden day! :)

And I received a beautiful card, miracle grow singles (I've never seen these before! They look way more easy to use than the big boxes I buy), and last but certainly not least the absolute cutest cactus I have ever seen!!

I am not a cactus person, but this tiny little baby cactus is on a magnet flowerpot! And its alive. I love it!!

Thank you Michelle!! everything was just wonderful!

I hope you feel better soon!

And everyone have a terrific weekend.

Talk to you later!

Hey all!
I mailed Christines package last Wed. and just checked the DC. It said it was out for delivery today! It took this long to KY? I sent out a package to TX at the same time as Christine's and it got there on Friday morning.

Christine, I am so sorry if your plants are looking horrible by this point. If anything doesn't look like it will make it I can re-send...that may take another 5 days to get there!

SO SORRY!

Sorry about messing that up Jlee. LOL The letters kind of ran together. Silly me.

Very warm here but low humidity. Having to water plants twice a day. The best part of the new growing year is the plants, the worse part is having to water.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Margo
