Hmmm....my wishes...let's see....
Iris..any kind, any color
Also, I just realized I have a big shade area...so anything for shade would be great!
But really, I would love anything that is sent.
After a long day away from home today, I popped on here for just a sec to see if we had our partners yet. And lo and behold, I see that I have Laurie. Yippee!!! Laurie, I have a sister who lives and works in Austin, and I know from visiting her that it just boils there in the summer. Question-is it too hot there for hostas? If it is, there is no need sending you any. IF you are unsure, would you please find out? Thanks! Later, Mary Ellen/ME/Mellen
Hi! I see I will be trading with Boballi
I think I have a couple of things you may be looking for..... gotta go wander around in those soggy beds of mine! More severe thunderstorms coming today and tomorrow...... blah...... but glad for the rain
My wish list is simple....mainly because I dont have one lol
Anything you send is fine....... i have room for anything....I just started last year myself!
FLWER4ME : I SENT YOU a email last evening can you please check see if you recieved my letter??
need info for you .
please let me know
Hey Mary Ellen! Nice to meet you!
Oh how I love Austin. I have not been there in years.
Yes, it does get very hot here...and we do not really have a "winter". I don't have to dig anything up in the winter, so that is a plus.
I did some reading on hostas and some of them go up to zone 9, which I am in. I have also seen them for sale at the local nursuries. So, from what I read, I think they would be ok.
I am excited about this swap! I have wanted to join the bf swap for a while.
Hi Swap Buddie!
I don't see your wish list. Should I go from your page? You know, I am a newbie so I most likely won't have anything exciting! (hope you don't mind "common & ordinary")
Also, I will be out of town the last week of July, so if you want to send after then that is fine, I just wouldn't want them baking on my porch for a week!
Happy trading everyone!
I just pop in to see who my new friend will be that I'm sending to. I won't be sending out your package untill around the middle of the month.
Don't worry, anything you send will be great! Everyone was new once; it is the thought that counts.
I'm going to bed soon, I've worked 3rd shift for the last 25 years, and all this week I am on days.
I am sorry I didnt get on the puter last night...I sent you an emial..and I am not going to post a wish lish, as i have "talked to you"..unless it is necessary...Ill be soo happy with anything..
I would like to say hello to everyone here, and tell you I am glad to "join in here" I think the only one on this thread I know is Hazelnutbunny, and she rocks !! ( she shared her garden with me..thanks again !!)
veeja..I am sorry, didnt see to send you my addie..
Shadymeadow..if you dont get an autumn joy sedum, please let me know and Ill send you some in the fall, I have one that is just huge, and i need to seperate it, and am willing to share. I know Im not your buddy, but will share anyways...grin.
Thanks for the partners! I have a wish list on my GW page!
But for my partner Rennep--don't feel you have to send anything from that! I am very easy to please and like everything! Seeds, cuttings, plants. Love vines, many common things! Have shade and sun so doesn't matter. Just that someone took the time to send is special to me. Remember all the plants in the yard and who sent!
Please email me as I am having some health issues and if ok would like to get it out soon. You can take your time and send by the deadline.
So for you Rennep, and all the other newbies, just send what you can and in a couple years, your list will be like ours! And welcome and have fun! Melinda
Veeja- Getting your plants ready to ship! I am having to work in between rain showers....Oh well, at least my feet are getting a good mud treatment! :O)
Flwrs...you're too sweet!
Good Evening ALL!If forgot to mention that I would like to become member after the swap,I'm mentioning it now. Big HELLO to Hazelnut(MA'M)LOL! and Vic.Us newbies come in packs huh?
Annie I'll be out of town July 18th- Aug 2nd so the middle of the month should be fine.If it gets here after I leave the hubby can take care of them(I hope).Me & the 3 kiddos are visiting my family in Eugene, Oregon.I'm flying with the 3 of them ALONE!!Picture total chaos.The plan is to carry the 11 month old in a sling,push the 4 year old in stroller & have the 6 year old hang onto the stroller handle while we change planes in Vagas. At 12:30 a.m!Prayers are very welcome =)Have a great night everyone.
Sorry Laurie I forgot to add your name while typing,but I didn't forget you.HEELLOOO!
I do know how to spell also. Its Vegas not Vagas. I'm going to bed before I mess up anything else.
You are so sweet to offer to send me some autumn joy sedum! Thank you - I would appreciate that very much!
OhMyGosh, Dirt....You are one BRAVE gal. I'd never ever ever ever evvvvvvveeeerrrrrr do that with my kids. I'm too chicken.
But then....I guess you're older and more mature than I am and you can handle it.......Can't cha...MA'AM????
And now I'M gonna go to bed before DIRT threatens to kick my not-so-weeee-little hiney.
Carol I didn't see my name on the list do I have a partner?
I hope everyone has a great day. It's gonna be a hot one here. Upper 90s.Yuck!Out to give poochies fresh water & check to see what the pup chewed while I was sleeping.Later.....
Oh, Remy you have it easy! Anything hardy to zone 9/10, I will take. Along with any and all veggie seeds. That's my big project right now. But I have a lot of things I sure want to do! lol
I will only be out in my garden in this heat either 5-6AM or after 7pm. We're in the 110's here this week. The wind starts blowing and I swear it feels like you have a blowdryer in your face.
It's interesting to see what other's are growing around the country. I'm starting to notice that many other of your summer flowers, we grow here in Feb! LOL
Hi Vic!! Sorry I'm slow in posting here. Glad to be swapping with you. Also funny cuz DH and DS are named Vic. Well, my trade page is fairly accurate although not 100%. Let me know if there are any specifics I have listed under "haves" that you would like. If I still have it, then I will send it along with maybe a few things I don't have listed yet.
As far as my wants, I am not picky as my page might indicate. I love pastel colors. Also, since you are in the north there are so many things up there that are very common in the box stores (meijers...gosh I miss that store) that are just not available here. I wish I could be more specific than that but I just remember the last time I was in Michigan in summer I wanted to take the whole Meijers garden section home with me but I figured the airlines would get a bit upset :)
It's funny that you will be away the last week in July because I will too and I will be up your way, lol! Staying with parents in Linden for my 20th HS reunion in Northville.
OH, one thing I don't have on my list yet that I would like to get into is scented geraniums. Don't know if those are common up there or not....my last few trips to Michigan were in the dead of winter.
Anyway, I'm sure I will be happy with whatever you send.
I'm am getting so excited about this swap! I already have a few ideas in mind. I am even thinking about trying to sprout some plants using rooting hormone.
My question is: Should I try to get them to grow roots before I send them...OR...Should I send "fresh" cuttings dipped in the hormone?
I've never done this before and would appreciate any input.
Boballi : )
Love & miss Meijers here also. Lived in Redford, Michigan for 5 years before moving back South.About the only thing I miss from the frozen tundra of MI.Other than the refund you get if something rings up more than it's marked on the shelf. Loved when that happened!! You got it free plus money back. I thought the customer service lady had flipped out when she gave me money back & item for free.LOL!
perfect carol made a mistake it is
Seraki - Squanzon
Smh78- Remy darn I thought I was perfect
sorry folks I guess I am delusional. hugs carol
Dirt, I only have two, but have done a lot of traveling with them from a very young age...it will be ok, just take some NEW coloring books or something NEW that they havent seen..something I did on a LONG trip was wrap up a few small items and put them into my carry on, then as they got cranky I would pull out something NEW to open( from dollar store)...it worked it made the trip much easier..( just dont tell them there are more in the bag...LOL)
Have a great reunion..mine is next week, wont be making it.
Sorry that I won't be trading with you, but Sue G. is a great trader in your climate. I know you'll be very happy with her. I would be more than happy to send veggie seeds though. As many people will tell you I'm always spreading the wealth with them: )
COOL MySpace Comments Hope everyone has a wonderful day!Thanks for the flying with kids tip flwrs4ever.
COOL MySpace Comments
Theresa, I can't believe you will be in Linden! That is only about 20 min. from me! As a matter of fact, I will be there Sat. morning taking the puppy to the vet! Too bad I will be gone, we could swap in person! LOL
Veeja- Your box will be going out in the morning. Here's the DC #- 0307 0020 0000 2525 5434
I hope everything makes it OK in all this heat! :O)
Veeja or Vic, Can you please send me the address I am to send to?? Thanks!
Good morning everyone! Hope everyone is having a great morning!
Rennep-Hello! Are you here? Would love to get your addy from you or Carol! Would like to get mine done soon in case not able to by the end of the month! Please email me!
Good Morning All!
I also need the address for my trade buddy.Would like to send out box next week.
I'm out to see what the 3 year old is doing.
My three Weeds
Have a great day!
Dirt, what adorable kids!!! They all have such beautiful eyes and smiles!
My email had been down for a while, so I don't know if I was sent my trade partners address or not. But it's up and going again, so if you could send me the address, that would be great!
Dirt, your weeds, um..I mean kids are sooooo adorable ! I just love kids ! ( yes, even when they are screaming..LOL) I have worked with kids all my life...
We had a sprinkle last night..was disappointed that it wasnt the rain storm they predicted...atleast the humidity went down..
Have a great weekend, we are getting ready for the fourth...what do you do to celebrate ??
Thanks! They take after me! HA HA!
For the 4th we will throw something on the grill,have cold pasta salad,baked beans,and some kind of cold dessert. I want to get ice cream churn for homemade ice cream. At dark we will shoot off fireworks. The 2 oldest love them.Not sure what the baby will do. Scream most likely if she's not asleep by then.Lucky for me she sleeps though most noises.
We had a toad strangler of a storm last night. It washed out some of the topsoil from my beds.Lots of thunder & lightning.
Hope your garden is fairing well dirt!
Carol, I still haven't received my trade address. I think GW may be having problems. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I still see Smh78 has not posted. I wonder where they are.
I have not heard the term Toad Strangler before. It is an interesting way to describe a storm.
Remy.. it might be an Alabama term, my brother -in -law from Lafayette, LA had never heard it either.Or maybe its just my family.......LOL!!
It probably is an Alabama term though there is nothing wrong with a wierd family, lol.
You don't have an email link on your page. I hope you come and see this.
nutty bunny, I received a great box from you today 2 brodiea bulbs, green gloves a mock orange, rose of sharon, yellow varigated hosta cuttings. roooted dianthus, a large hosta. they are all soaking in a bucket of water, rooted ones looking pretty good cuttings a bit sad. packed well, just too hot. I love them all and will do my best to save them, thankyou you did great. hugs carol, I filed all the newbie addresses and my computer ate them. so please share your addys with each other. if anyone dosen't hear from their partner by friday ask Susie to give you one of her newbies. and count non responders out of swap. hope you haven't sent both boxes yet susie. hugs to all. please send rain. hugs carol

Good morning again! Well, Now What! I just heard from Renepp and she had been having computer problems until now! She got my messages and emailed me this am. Will be sending to her as I had originally planned. Do you want me to send to playsndirt also? Either way is fine, just let me know! (I already emailed her and told her her partner had changed, but don't know if she has mailed yet or not!)

Melinda we will keep things as is then & i will send to both since i have their plants picked out .

Geesh! Your husband burns a box, you hurt your knee, and he won't shoot you? lol. Gary will come shoot you, he's been itching to use his rifle for years now, lol.
SMH has gotten a hold of me, and we've emailed, so everything is good here.
I just wanted to let you know that I was interested in joining your group after this swap...that is, if Remy is happy with me after I've sent my pathetic box full of common plants :)You all seem wonderful and I would love to become a part of the great energy here. I'll try to borrow my husband's camera to give you all a sense of what my gardening space is like. Unfortunately, we don't have any kids or grandkids to show off, but we do have two very ill-mannered cats :)
Anyway, we live in Ithaca NY--sort of central/western NY and I go to grad school and my husband has a computer business. Gardening has become a passion for me. The soil here is so much better than in Montana, where I'm from. Plus we actually get rain out here, which to me is still a minor miracle. My family on my mom's side in Montana are wheat farmers, and they have had a drought for EIGHT years now. Needless to say, they are jealous of all the rain I get out here in the East.
Well, enough rambling. I just wanted to express my interest in joining and introduce myself
Hi All! Just popping in to let Annie know her box is on it's way. USPS Confirmation #0306 0320 0004 5119 8969. I'm gonna try to get caught up with my laundry now.With a family of 5 I think it might be impossible to do.My 4 year old thinks he has to change if he gets just a little dirt on him.I thought boys liked to be messy!!!
Hope everyone has great day!!

I got back from Iowa today, and had such a nice time. I have to work tonight, have a cpr class to go to Tuesday morning(I love it when they say meetings are manditory)THen I will be off till Friday night.
Dirt, your kids are sooooo cute. I will be looking for your package, and I will be digging yours Wed and Thurs. I will mail it Friday and you should get it no later than Monday.
Sure has been hot and dry here, but we did get a much needed shower today.
I had to have my car towed;the front brakes are out and it needs new ball joints. (I was thinking, WOW I wonder how many plants I could have bought instead) :O) :O)
I hope everyone is well, and staying cool.
Dirt you crack me up! My sons are the same way... I swear I must do 15 loads of laundry...AT LEAST. HAH, even more now, we're potty training the 2yr old.
So far we've gotten him to go IN the bathroom...just not on the toilet. Oh boy, thats been some messes!!! LOL
Other than that, all good on the home front. Sue and I will be exchanging boxes this weekend.

she marked arrows on the box and said be sure you know to open the end they are pointing at first lol.
I need the mailing info on Brandykay, Thanks :)Anita
Hello everyone! Carol, I had heard from Renepp and she had some computer problems! So Suzie already mailed to both of hers and renepp thought she was mailing to me! Now she says she guesses she can't because she got an email that said I already had another partner. I would still like to keep her as mine if possible! We had it all figured out I thought. Plmk as now I have none and would love to mail to her! Thanks, Melinda
I hope everyone is having a great day!Annie,I'm very excited to be getting my box soon.Seraki,I wish you all the luck with the potty training.As you have boys already,do they ever truly learn how to wet IN the potty?
Sounds like you got a great box Vic!Later all....
Remy, please do as you planned, I didn't know susie had sent hers already, sorry please let rennep know, I lost her e-mail. thankyou carol
Dirt,Your package is flying, and the confirmation number is 0307 0020 0000 3240 0414. Please open the box from the side;do not take the plants out of the ends. I hope you enjoy what I've sent to you as much as I enjoyed picking them out.
Susie, How is everyone your way doing? I want you to know that some of the daylilies you sent are blooming(SO PRETTY)! I will try to catch you on line later this evening.
OK, The outside is calling me. I am enjoying my days off digging in the dirt, and getting dirty!
Dirt, I sent you an e-mail.
Sandy's package was mailed out today, USPS #0307 0020 0004 7460 7914.
Thanks Deb, I'll let you know when it gets here. Will try to get your package out soon. We're having a heat wave here...just too hot to be out in the garden. It hit 100 degrees today and in the Pacific Northwest, we are not used to that kind of heat!! We're getting air conditioning installed Friday. Yeah!!!
I sent my pkg. out to Sarah today, DC # 0303 0130 0000 1798 5783. We decided I would send first and then she would send.
100 is awful hot for out your way!
Lol! you know you really are a gardener when you think that way about bills.
I'm glad to see you are very happy with your box : )
Have a goodnight everyone,
My wish list
Can I have an oldie come to my house and tell me what I have here-LOL Sorry-thought I would ask!
Anything would be great. I have very little here. I LOVE Daisies (and anything that looks even remotely like a daisy) and have many Shastas-would love to have things for butterflies. Thanks so much Robbi Kay Hoy
I would love to part of the group!
Good morning everyone! I am opening Remy's box as I type. Let's see...yay!
a nice note...thanks remy
and I see a coneflower, which I have been wanting
a cute little baby yucca (aw!)
GORGEOUS pink asiatic lilies
a healthy looking spiderwort
a baby rosa glauca
salvia knockout looking nice and purple
a centranthus, or jupiter's beard, which I am not familiar with (I look forward to looking it up)
a serbian bellflower
a lovely belle de crecy rose,
and another rose, belle isis (isis was the name of my beloved cat who died of a tumor--i will plant this in memory of her)
and, as if that weren't more than enough, Remy gave me a beautiful book "A Year along the Garden Path"
and some wonderful-smelling soap
Remy, I can't thank you enough. This is a wonderful wonderful gift. You have been so generous. I am sending out your package this afternoon, and I hope it will contain something you can use.
Yay! I can't wait to put these babies in the ground
Veeja- I would like to join OBF, if you believe I did well enough in this swap! :O)
BOY! AM I SPECIAL OR WHAT? I GOT MY BOX FROM April/Dirt under my nails. and boy that girl knows how to pack a box
In the box was not one bird feeder but two! One for peanuts or sunflower seeds and another to hang on the window.(My kitties love you for this, and the birdies too)
Three Daylilies, DArius, King Lamoni, and Fairtale Pink.
Dianthus- Tiny Rubies
A Loyal Garden Pet that is soooo cute, and will be a welcome site in the hosta garden ( I hope he likes to eat slugs) IT states that he/she has a happy go lucky nature, is used to children, Not to boisterous and not prone to straying.
Some pretty note cards and envelopes.
I hope I am not forgetting anything, and I will post pictures later today.
April is a keeper in my book, she may be a newbie, but boy can she pack a box. She did a great job in packing her plants, not a single plant was wilted or stressed.
April, I do hope you like the box I sent you as much as I am enjoying your gifts to me. I'm looking forward to you being in our group, (YES,YES,YES) and trading with you in the future.
