"I thought since I was the June birthday I would mention some plants I would like to have.

Seeds:

Sunflowers: Lemon Aura, Teddy Bear

Castor beans: any color

Plants

Black bamboo

Bowles golden grass

Variegated dwarf bamboo

Lirope Pee Dee Gold Ingst

Hellebores

Heuhera Coral Bells: Stoplight

Brunnera Looking Glass and Jack Frost. hadspen cream

Phlox: Nicky

Sedum: Bon Bon, Samuel Oliphant, Black Jack

Yucca: Color guard

Shasta dasiy Yellow

Echinacea Sunrise, orange, rassmatazz

Herbs: Really want Lemon verbena, black and blue sage, spilanthes, blood veined sorrel, stevia

I live on 10 acres and have lots of room for plants. I have landscaped 3 acres so far.

I don't mean to come across demanding as I'm not I just have a lot of plants and if possible would like to try something new.

I also like dahilas and cannas. I tried them for the first time last year and really enjoyed the results.

I enjoy home made soaps and bath salts.

I collect Siberain husky stuff. I laid mine to rest this past Jan. after 14 years of friendship. Miss him so!

Oh almost forgot I am also looking for sum and substance hosta. I have several but for some reason that one happens to be the deer's favorite! I will put it in a fenced area next time!

I enjoy doing scrapbooks so any supplies would be a welcomed site.

I also like terra cotta plant markers.

Anything Nascar with #12! Big Ryan fan!!!

Anything related to herbs~

I also welcome any books on herbs or gardening in general and used is good."

A big warm thanks goes out to Deb!! You are so organized! Again I must say I am sorry I didn't get an email off to let you know your package arrived! I do thank you for the time and effort you put into the lovely package that you sent. To share with the others Deb sent dahlias, canna. A really cool terra cotta sun!! I will add it to the few I have...it will look great! Oohh thank you for the bath goodies!! A girl can never have to many! Such a cute knick knac of chipmunks....did you know I have several of them at my home. They are so cute....they are also running around (looks like playing tag) on the back deck! Also enclosed were 5 Asiatic lillies they look so pretty! Can't wait to see them in bloom. An elephant ear which I really enjoy watching those grow. Also cuttings of Hens and chicks, wanding jew, barrel cactus, african viloet and plus seeds including Teddy bear sunflowers!! They are my favs!!!
Deb you really took time and effort in this box as it included so many of the things I truly enjoy!! Thanks again as you have made my special day a bit brighter! Sorry again for my lateness!! I will try not to let it happen again. I guess I can't help that fact that I am a people person always helping when I can!

Wow, June went by sooo fast, I can't believe July is just around the corner!
I really enjoyed Jan's early birthday intro, and was able to prepare the box a little better just because of it. So, I'm going to do the same! My real birthday is December 17. Getting to celebrate my birthday during the summer for the first time is a real treat! I would never be able to receive any plants in December!

I'm still working on my moon garden, and would appreciate anything that I could add to it (plants, seeds, small statues, etc).

I also adore sunflowers, glass suncatchers, homemade soaps. Anything with a sunflower motiff is perfect. Candles (any scent), things for the garden, garden related items. I collect birdhouse items (any) especially crafted items by Marjolein Bastin (Hallmark).
I love feeding the birds, and basically just love anything that has to do with nature!

I also collect african violets, hoyas- (would love a piece of a 'crinkle' hoya, rope hoya (regular or variegated, or any unusual hoya, I already have Publicalyx, Silver pink, Phillipine black.
I would love a few indoor ferns (don't have any), regular, rabbit's foot fern, or a division of an outdoor fern, that can tolerate cold temperatures.
More indoor plants that I'm looking for are- a chunk of monstera, variegated monstera cutting/small plant. Variegated plants are my favorite, and am always wanting to try something new!
I also appreciate vegetable/herb seeds. I have a huge garden that I'm constantly still trying to complete! Herbs grow really fast anyways! ;) I love Heirloom seeds too.

I'm sooo excited to be the July birthday person!
I'll be happy with ANYTHING, I love hand crafted items too! I make crafts occasionally, and know how much work goes into making something!

Jan,
I'm so sorry! I'm so late! I'll be shipping your box out tomorrow! How was the race? I've never been to the track in MI. I've been to Chicago, Talledega, Dover, Daytona and Darlington. My BF is a big Mark Martin fan.

Hope you've had a great month - it's not over yet!
