UPDATE: Pedal Pushers 'May I give from my Heart'

sassyd(z8/SC)May 27, 2008

Looks like we needed a new one.

Question....can anyone take over hosting for next month or do we want to cancel next month...give me your thoughts. I really don't feel like I can do it, it needs to be listed for sign ups, do we want to wait a month or 2...tell me what you think, but tell me soon if you can.

You can post or email me at sassyd@sccoast.net

Either way, thanks to all you girls that have helped with hosting, I appreciate it alot!

Hello ladies! First I want to apologize for not being more of a part of the postings! I hurt my knee and then had breast issues previous to that and just not been up to par. The worst time of year to hurt yourself and can't even get out and do hardly anything in the yard!!
I am going to send Dee's box hopefully this weekend as my grandson or daughter is going to help me pack it! I have rec'd 2 absolutely marvelous boxes from her!! I got 2 nice orange and yellow cannas, one tropical canna, crepe myrtles, shampoo ginger, hidden ginger, sky vine, and night blooming cerius (?). I hope I didn't leave anything out! The other box had a muffin pan with scented candles in it, beautiful angel plaque, another beautiful angel figurine plaque, lovely flower hanging made of porcelain, absolutely gorgeous hummingbird windchime, journal, to do list pad with magnet for fridge!, 2 wonderful cookbooks (which I have been pouring over and making lists from-as can't garden much right now!), and a beautiful box with antique roses all over it! Lovely!! I absolutely loved it all!
And sorry took so long to post!! Just been in bed alot with leg elevated when not sitting at work.
I just hope you will enjoy yours as much as I have the one I rec'd.
Hope everyone had a great memorial day and happy gardening! Melinda

I sent my package out for Robin today, USPS #0307 0020 0003 4325 6700.

I packed the plants this morning, so everything should arrive in good condition. I decided to not send it yesterday, our temps were too chilly.

I have a problem, I was hoping to meet with Lisa in person to exchange our goody boxes but never heard back from her. I hoped to mail out my box to her yesterday but have lost her addy. If any of ya'll have her addy would you email it to me? I am already very late in sending things out but would like to get this over with. Lisa if you read this please email me as your emails aren't going through for me, they keep coming back to me.

I hope everyone has a great evening.

Melinda, that is a wonderful box that Dee sent you! I hope you are feeling better soon. I will be praying for a quick recovery for you!

Deb, I read that Illinois hit the 40's yesterday! Yick! That is way too cold. We had frost advisories on the tv for tonight in some of the surrounding counties. I hope it misses us because there is no way I can cover all the new plantings that I just put out!

Sassy, I hope you are starting to feel a little better!

Tracy thanks so much for helping me, you're a sweetheart as always. I'm feeling a little better thanks. Actually, if I had any energy at all I could have dug Anitas plants this afternoon, the cold front that came in, it was actually chilly outside. Now by the time I can, it'll be hotter than hades (as Pixie puts it) lol That changes overnite for us.

No problem Miss Sassy! I am glad that you are feeling a bit better! I will host for June if you like. I will only be able to host but not send though. I have some catering parties to cook for and then we have Ted's Graduation Party too. I am working like crazy to get the yard finished and then a few inside projects done too. I have 4 large plant orders that will be coming in any time now so will be out planting away! Checking in here won't be any trouble at all to see what wonderful goodies our friends have sent to each other will be a welcome break for me so it will be fun!

Melinda, I am so happy that you liked your boxes. I truly enjoyed putting them together for you. Have you been able to get the plants into the ground?
It must be driving you crazy not to be able to get out into the yard and dig! I understand why you haven't been able to put my box together-of course you can't get out there and bend your knee. I am a patient lady and will be thrilled whenever it does get here. In the meantime I am going to a Master Gardener's sale in the morning so that will keep me satisfied for a bit.
The one angel came from a crafter in Natchez; I got her during my recent visit.
Thank you to the organizer of this swap. I have really enjoyed it and look forward to the next one.

I have Christie's box all packed up.. but then realized in all the emails we've sent eachother.. I never got HER address .. *sighh

I sent her an email this morning, but she may be out of town. Will send it as soon as I get her address! Does anyone else have it by chance??

Hugs all,

update :)
Christie emailed me her addr tonight, but she'll be out of town starting Monday for a few days. When she gives me a timeframe of when she'll be home, I'll mail the box 2-day accordingly to match when she arrives back home. Does that make any sense? LOL

I received a great gift from my partner, Sonja, yesterday. It included:

Peony Karl Rosenberg
2 colors of Glads (12 corms each of Yellow and Red)
2 varieties of Dinnerplate Dahlias (3 tubers each) - Peaches 'n' Cream and Vancouver
12 bulbs of fragrant Freesia "Pink Beauty"
2 large clumps of a plant that I think is a variety of Kalanchoe (but I could be wrong)
A new pair of light-weight scissors!

I hope I haven't forgotten anything. The box was stuffed completely full, so I certainly could have missed listing an item.

I'm looking forward to trying out these plants, as other than peonies, I've never grown any of them before.

Thanks so much, Sonja! Pat

Hello, Ladies, Have been trying for several days to get back listing all the items I received from amybabyboy3 but with all the traveling done, now is the first opportunity. I was so pleased with everything I received in such a well packed box and sorry for the problem you had ,Amy. Thank you so much for the beautiful cup and the Herbal Infusion Infusion "Passion" Tea with the lovely coaster set to use when I am drinking it. The plants were great and packed so well. I have always wanted the Black Elephant Ear and it has a new leaf on it already, I also have never had Campananula "Wedding Bells"(looked it up on the GW Hortiples Plant Data Base, Day Lily "Pardon Me" (looked it up, too looks beautiful) this is the first year I have been interested in day lily's and now I have a named one!, Hosta's "Abique Drinking Gourd" and "Fragrant Bouquet". Planted them both in a very special place. One special t hing was in the box and that was a picture drawn by a special boy that will be put on my refrigerator. This has been a fun RR and thanks, Sassy for doing an outstanding job for us. Blessings, Margaret

Thank you so much for your box. I recieved it as I was walking out the door heading for my long drive to DC. I hurried and opened it and wrote a note to Jason with directions for the plants.
The plants looked great and I love everything else that you sent :)

Wendy sent me 4 plants, one that I know is sedum, and maybe a vine looking plant, and the other two I am not sure of.
- pot hanger decorations, I do not know the 'real' name of what they are. But they are really cute and will look good on some of the pots that I painted :)
-lighthouse statues
-little stand with a flag
-scrapbooking paper
-butterfly windchime... that was my favorite!!

If I forgot anything, please remind me! Again, I was on my way out the door, and I am writing from memory. Thank you so much Wendy, I loved your gifts!

Christie ~ So glad you liked the box and plants! :) The one you thought was sedum is actually Portaluca (Moss Rose). The tiny blue flowers are Lobelia. The 'poker' blue plant is a Salvia. and the vine is the Periwinkle, just cover the stem up and it'll root all over it and spread out. :)

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

I'm so glad you enjoyed the box! I hope the plants do really well for you! The philos are so easy to grow. Don't need much light either! I'm sure you'll have them for many years! They love to trail, cascade!

Just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a happy 'flowerful' summer! It is already too hot to ship plants here! I will be popping by from time to time to say hello, but I won't be participating in swaps again till it cools off again!

Have fun!

Just wanted to get on and say so sorry to Dee! I will be sending a box, but have to wait until my grandson is back from his visit to help me. He helped with another one I just got sent and it was due before this one. I apologize to everyone for the lateness , but I will be sending. I ripped the tendsons and cartilage in my knee and still in a knee brace until the 16th of July! That will be 10 weeks and hoping I won't have to have anymore done. Isn't doing well and haven't been able to do much at all in the yard! Weeds are overtaking my gardens!!!
I will be sending and again Dee I do apologize, but I loved the boxes you sent and hope you will like the one I send!
thanks, Melinda

Again, letting everyone know that I did send a box to Dee. I sincerely apologize that it took me so long to mail it out. Had I known that my summer was going to be what it was, I would not have signed up. But I did mail it and it has been delivered. I would appreciate if you could let me know if you liked what I sent or not. I loved my boxes and tried to make a good box for you. And again, sorry so late. But I always send! thanks, Melinda
