THOUGHT I WOULD START A NEW FORUM TO POST YOUR XMAS GIFTS ;)
Happy gardening to all sorry can't chat longer
but have to runs some errands this morning .
will catch up later.
Melissa, I will be gone for a few days starting tomorrow, my brothers wife died unexpectadly (sp) today so we are going to Okla tomorrow. I STILL will get your box in the mail on Monday though, I am taking a "plant cooler" plus my Dad has such a beautiful garden I will probably get cuttings of things from him, if ya don't want them hmmm well either they go in the trash or ya just smile and shake your head and stick them in the dirt somewhere. J/K I will email you before and ask first.
Smiles all and be safe always,
retraction to my last umm update. I won't be gone until I hear something further from my daddy. He told me to stay put until they completed the autopsy and set a date for the funeral. Please remember my brother (Brice Scott) in ya'lls prayers.
Thanks and smiles,
Trina-So sorry to hear about your sister-in-law. Will be thinking about your family at this difficult time.
Susie-I hope to mail your irises Monday. Will let you know for sure.
Thank you Shirley, I really appreciate it. Ya'll have all been soo nice and really taken me under ya'lls wing, I just want to express my gratitude and let ya'll all know that ya'll are all a bunch of wonderful wome
Where the heck has everyone been? Seems everyone(including always forgetful me) missed Carol's birthday. I caught that all her children had a party with her on the newbie thread.
I had a very nice day yesterday. I went to the casino to have lunch with my father, brother and his girlfriend, and his mother. We didn't gamble. She works at the casino and gets a discount. I sold my brother my old truck. I had held on to it, and my father fixed it all. He used to be a drag racer.
Then I went out to Lewiston for gas on the Indian reservation. I had to go visit a couple nurseries out that way, lol. The one had really cool new cultivars, but oh my the prices! It was nice to look. Then I went out to another green house, but the do carry some nice perennials. Well, they were having a buy one get one free sale! I picked up 4, gallon, pots, including a monkshood. It was the last one left. I was excited about that, because I had one but my dog killed it last year.
Then in the evening, my store dept. had a bowling party. I didn't bowl, but it was fun to go out with everyone outside of work. I am going to miss working with them all.
Sorry about your sis-in-law. Your brother must be devastated.
Talk to you all later,
YES Remy your right we all have been off doing other things & forgot to take time to come wish my co-partner
A huge B-day wish hope she still loves me :)))
I know she was also busy with her family & really didn't have time to stop in here anyway :))) .
Sassyd : You have mail did you receive it ????
well it has been sprinkling since midnight a whole 1/2 " of rain , the heavy rain was yesterday about 1 mile up the road & not a drop here :( I will be sure that my next home will be in a rain belt area :))

Dad's urologist just called they had canclelation for 8am tomorrow so will be taken him in tomorrow to set up the apt for his prostrate surgery .
daddy wants to get it done & over .:)
well better get my day going here wishing you all the best gardening day ever :)))
Now don't throw stones at me everyone, I'm not bragging here, but we are getting a nice rain here since last night. I hope everyone that is dry will get some soon.
Pixie, So sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your family.
LIFE IS GOOD,
Susie I received it, it was the last post on the old thread. I love it so much will get a pic posted. Thanks so much. Emailed you:)
Okay girls, if any show up, its about time to get the August swap posted for sign ups, could you please help with ideas other than just cookbooks? lol I think we need a little something else to it, Sue has given me some ideas which I'm thankful for and will use, but I want to hear what the rest of you want. And hurry, jeezzzzzzzzz tommorrow is the 18th! Can you believe it? I can't.
I need a dip in the pool!
Anyone got a towel?
Sassy (Stay cool)
Thank you all again for the condolences. The funeral is Thursday so we will be leaving tomorrow to go up there (to Okla). I dread the drive and am already ready to be home. We will be coming home on Friday or Saturday though, depends on the flip of the coin. I start a new job on Monday so I am pulling for Friday.
Deb, I hope you got the email about the box. I really am worried about the stress I put on the plants as I packed them, you will see when you unpack the box.
Annie, Thank you and girlie girl you just tell me when you need barrels of rain water and I will ship you some from "Fox" Lake (our backyard!!!). We had 4" yesterday and 2" today, not that I am complaining, WAITTT yes I ammmm, tired of the rain here in Houston! I can say its helping the grass and my mud (not "MUD" my dog).
Susie, your Daddy is in our thoughts and prayers.
Remy, thank you and yes my brother is Lost, but he is strong and will make it.
Ya'll have a great week full of rain and sunshine where its needed.
Trina ps. I love the Pool Kitty !!!!
Sassy-That is so cute....you know your computer girl. You do all sorts of cute stuff.
Carol-You will have to send all of us to the corner. I can't believe we missed your birthday. But it is fun to have an extended birthday.
Hope it was the best one ever.
Remy-I Love good plant sales lucky you on the monkshood.
Susie-Your box went out today, be on the look out.
Trina, I apologize, I'm thinking of you and your family.
Please let me know if I can help. Wishing you and your family the best.
Shirley, lol, I think that frogs on some serious medication! LOL love it!
HEY!!!! Ideas on next months swap please!
Awww Sassy Please don't apologize and Thank You.
Carol Happy Belated Birthday from here too!!!
I am not a full member of this group yet but Thank you all for making me feel so welcome. This is such a wonderful Group! I am really excited about becoming a group member, I do know the rules and guidelines and I also know I am way too talkative (typeative???)
No you're not Trina, seems nice to see someone posting, ok this grandma has to go to bed! Long time no sleep!
Sassy (please help a old girl out:(
Awww Thanks Sassy and I hope you have good dreams and sleep well. I am still umm packing for the trip. YUCKIE, I am not a packer but my hubby is lol (opposites attract eh?) so we each have our own bags, me (just for two nights will take everything imaginable ":JUST IN CASE:" and he will take two pairs of socks, undies, jeans, shirts and a pair of shorts and a t shirt (ok so what if we just HAPPENED to get stranded???) Oh well.... Like I said I am already ready to be home, but I need to be there for my older brother.
Sleep well all. Specially those yawning kittys!
Prayers going out for Susie's Dad and Trina's family. You are very special to your loved ones especially at times like these.
Sassy....maybe a "beat the heat" theme? or just a "fun in the sun" theme?
I'm glad your dad got to get in for an appointment quicker. Waiting can drive you crazy!
Glad you got some rain. It rained a little here, but we could use some more.
Lol! You're the hostess, now I know why you were laughing before. I'm a little slow, lol! You could have everyone include a local food item, like how I've sent local cookies before, or last month I sent Kim a little jar of local maple syrup.
Happening on plant sales like that is the best! I hate paying full price for anything, lol.
Have a good day everyone,
just wanted to let you all know that as of right now doc

Also, my partner's Christmas box is on its way, DC# 0303 0130 0000 1798 7800.
Ooh, I like that local food item idea! I'm thinking I want Remy to send me a hot NY style pizza! lol.
I did a trade with Trina, and her boxes are fantastic! She packs everything perfectly and has very healthy looking plants! Not one plant looked stressed in the box! Everything was labeled by name, wrapped very well.
Trina has my recommendation to join the group! I've been talking with her through email too, and she's really such a nice person!
hi everyone, hope you are all doing well. it's another hot and muggy day here, storms are headed our way and the warnings are being issued.
wow, how about that pipe that blew underground in new york. quite scarey. geeze,i take way too much for granted.
sassy, i've been waiting for the cookbook swap - cooking and gardening, right up my alley. so, cookbook, remy's idea of a local item and what about a plant that has a food name in it? like say root beer iris (that's the only one i can think of off the top of my head). it's your swap, do it your way! !!!!! oh and i sure hope you got my email about the coop left over daylilies. hope you got to order some.
i've had been spending so much time with the baby. she turned one on tuesday. having a big party for her in a couple of weeks. i'll have to post some of her new pix if i ever upload them.
my orientals are all coming into bloom. tom pounce is one i highly recommend. it's a massive bloom and the scent is ever so intoxicating.
well, off to check email. had problems with server for the last few days and there's a ton of them.
be well. talk to you soon.
positive thoughts prayers to all

The Sassy one~~~~~~~
I would love to be Trina's big Sis! I forwarded Trina the rules, now she's only missing the questionaire.
Welcome to the group Melissa, Trina, and the rest of the newbies who haven't posted yet!
It has been a busy few days. Another one of my nephews had a birthday party. This one had the reptile guy come. I love that! I'm not squeamish about snakes, frogs, etc. In fact I was one of the kids holding a snake scaring the other kids when I was small, lol.
My friend at work's son got in to the top ten on So You Think You Can Dance. That is very exciting. He gets to go on a tour of the country when the show is over no matter what happens now. They do make a stop in Buffalo, but I think they are going to need a bigger place or a couple of nights here. Oh and if he makes it a couple more weeks, they will fly my friend out to see the show. She though they wouldn't do that so I'm so excited for her.
Theresa and Sassy,
Lol about the pizza! I'm not sure I can afford FedEx pizzas : )
How many Bloomin' Friends are there? I don't have a clue, but I'll guess 22 players.
I'm on a vacation next week, but not going anywhere. After reading your post, I think Gary and I will make some pickles.
today while i was out back working in my flowerbeds
& chatting with Dj I hear my father calling me from the front porch where is sits from dawn to dusk :)))

once i have everyone's completed questionnaire, i'll be distributing them. also, CAROL MOVED, so please update her address, she's only posted it about 18 times.
ihave the worst &*^%^&*( case of poison ivy, worse than i've ever had in my life. if you saw me, you would think i was from another planet, or a horror movie. i can't do a freakin thing, because clothes aren't all that compfortable, so i'm stuck in the house, staring out the window at blooms i should be photographing and scraping wallpaper off the spare room. it's been painted over, so it's a total PITA to get off. so far i've wet the walls and scraped what i could, i purchased a steamer, and that sucks and today i used DIF, and that's not working real well either. i've decided to totally remake my house, room by room and i plan on doing every bit of it and then i'll probably drop dead.
sad news in my family. my neice, who got married in april, her husband just learned he has a very rapidly spreading cancer - he doesn't have a long life ahead. my sister, who has had major heart problems, stents, angio and all that other stuff that goes along with it, was just hospitalized for chest pains and they had to do some other procedure and my BIL's mom is on her way out with lung cancer. when it rains it pours.
on a positive note, the baby just turned one. her birthday celebration is pushed ahead a few weeks until this grandmom's poison ivy clears up. and the fake dil is up to her mental nonsense again.
okay, enough blabbering, i'm itchy as all that and can't use anything to stop it due to allergic reactions to the ingredients in those products.
NEW GIRLS, get your Q's back as soon as possible.
i thought i was posting all this on august, so hopefully they will see.
sue, i saw that plaque remy sent, that is totally neat,i love it.
Susie-So glad you liked the daylilies. Hope you have tons of blooms next year. Your Dad sounds like so much fun and he has it made you taking care of him and all. You are definetely a special lady. I did receive my plant book and can't wait to sit down some rainy day and read it. I love those kind of books and you always learn something you didn't know.
Maryanne-I feel for you I get that stuff every year. One thing though it has never gotten on my face just body, arms and legs. The best thing you can do is take the hottest shower ever when it gets unbearable. The hot shower is the only way I can sleep without scratching all night. It helps to dry it up too. Sorry to hear about all the bad news with your family. Keeping you and your family in my prayers. God Bless you all during all this. I cannot believe little punkin is one year old. Where does time go. Sheesh, it was only awhile back that she was born. Post pictures of the party I want to see her.
Remy-You just made my day with the great Christmas box you sent. You sure know how to make someone happy. I loved the Christmas wrapping, card and everything. Where did you find all the Christmas goodies this time of year?
Ornament-Love this and it is such a keeper
candles-holiday sparkle (how cool is that)
ribbon-beautiful Santa ribbon
Big Leaf sculpture-I have the perfect place for this on my covered deck (I love stuff like this)
Sedum 'Bertram Anderson'
Sempervivum 'Red Beauty'
Centranthus 'Jupiter's Beard'
What is a box without wonderful plants to top it off. I love them all and will be planting them tomorrow. I bought a hens and chick planter two years ago and never had any hens and chicks to put in it. Can't wait to plant them and see how it looks. Will post pictures when I get it put together.
Carol had my name but Remy says they switched names. Yes it was a surprise when I saw who the box was from. I thought I had forgot a trade or something. Thanks Remy you're the best.
Maryanne, I just emailed you for the questionaire, I will return it asap. Like Melissa, am also very excited to become a member of this group! Your family will be in our prayers also. I am also sorry about the poison Ivy YUCKIE, I am one of the fortunate ones that is not allergic to it by all my boys can stand far away from the stuff and the wind will blow it on them and they are covered bad in itchies! I feel for you. We use a stuff called CalaGel by Oaks-N-Ivy, its clear and really helps the itch and dries it quickly. Wal-mart carries it.
I'm butting in here, I know... :O) But I had a horrible case of poison Ivy on my arms last month, also. I had decided to remove 300+ ditch lilies from along our road, and in the middle of that was poison ivy & poison oak. So by pulling that up by the roots also, I had it from my ears to my belly button.
Big horrible blisters, and my arms swelled so big .. I had to wear tank tops, which just made it worse...
ANYWAY, nothing was working. I tried all the home remedies, EVERYTHING, and then a co-worker told me to try Jewelweed salve.
I did, and it cleared it up by the next day!! I am not kidding! I was amazed...I usually think my co-worker is full of bologna...but he knew what he was talking about this time.
There's a place on Ebay that sells it, it's $7.95 (includes shipping). The sellers name is Jewelweed44, Go to their store, they also have soaps. They ship out very quickly too, within a day or 2. (which feels like forever when you're suffering!)
It can also be used to prevent breaking out, just put some on before you work out side, and remember to wash it off and reapply when you get back in.
It works great that way, my kids haven't gotten poison ivy all summer, and they play in it all the time! (they usually get it horribly!)
Now that I've butted in...I'll back out. lol :O)
But I hope that helps?
ANNE: I received the wounderful plant markers today dad ask me if i was going to mark the path though the garden with them for him :)) just being a smarty .
I sure do love how bigggggg they are & I will problem
want to send you the money to pick up more for me ;))) .
I love trading with all my Gardening friends everyone seems to find something special or unique to send in our boxes :)) I hate for my month as hostess to end:))hehehe
just as the rest of you who have been a hostess :)
it is fun to be surprised :).
MELISSA : It is Not called butting in when any of our new & older friends can give us a few trusted & tried tips :))
I had sent earthly/maryanne some tansy plant to plant in her garden when it gets tall cut & hang it to dry .
then bag it up like tea . when you get the poison Ivy or oak steep this like tea then use a cotton ball to put it on the IVY . this will dry the Ivy up the same as those exspensive meds . some drink it also I don't care for the taste .
I have loads of it so let me know if you want any for your gardens .
ok you all have till SUNDAY eve to get your guess in for the prise .
shirley I forgot to let you know I loved the irises also & they are all doing great I was just so excited about the daylilies :)) thank you .
also want to take this time to wish one our newbies
ANANDA A very
TOMORROW :))) HAPPY B-DAY NEWBIE :)))
WELL ITS TIME TO SAY
OH & Thank you Annie For sharing the pic's
So glad you like your hostess gift. That is so funny about your father! I can just imagine the whole conversation, lol.
I'm so sorry to hear about your relatives. It does seem to happen all at once, doesn't it. I'm also sorry to hear about your poison ivy too! What Melissa says is true. Jewelweed is a cure for poison ivy.
Thanks! I'm glad I made you happy : ) That is cool that you have a hens and chicks planter to use. You have to remember I work in a store, so I'm always getting the discontinued items at a good price. Oh and the ornament, a store near me has them out already! I just had to get it; it was too cute.
That is horrible about getting blisters. I have gotten allergic blisters from being operated on so now I have to have the no latex thing when I go to the hospital. Funny thing is for all my allergies, I, like Trina, have never had a reaction to poison ivy.
Have a good night everyone,
Susie, If it works I would love some for here! Seems like my boys are always getting it and I would rather do the homemedics. I can send you postage or whatever you would like. I have also heard that Tansy works wonders on mosquito bites as well as chiggars.
I am going to have to make a shopping trip to ebay also, cause that poison ivy, oak, and sumac causes havoc around here, bad enough to have me take the boys for a cortizone shot! (well they are old enough now to drive themselves but still!)
Great Tip Melissa!!! thanks! I just can't imagine the ouchies that people go through with that stuff but I symphathize.
Question: The quiz..is it how many do we think will sign up for the August swap? (I'll guess 16)
Or is the question how many OBF'ers are there total?
(I'll say 31)
melissa guessed 16 I thought remy or someone had also made a guessed of 16 please let me know .
well i have to go pick up some straw today & build a pen
yep getting a critter in a few days if all goes well:)
have a great day HAppy Gardening.
I think Remy guessed 22. She's probably alot closer! :O)
Today is such a nice, cool morning! No humidity at all! So surprising, for Arkansas! :O) I think I'll go out and do some weeding that I've been putting off.
Hope everyone has a great Monday! :O)
Hello friends & fellow gardening nuts,
Loooong time no chat, huh? Well, it's about all that which has me posting today.
Just wanted to say hello to you all & let y'all know I have to drop out of the OBF group. I just have too many commitments on my time, energy & funds these days to be a good player/swap pal. You've all been wonderful to play & swap with and I hope we can still do some individual swaps occassionally.
If I have time & such, I'll check to see if you gals have any "open" RRs posted (if & when!) as it happens. ;p
Email me if you want and hope everyone is doing well and having a wonderful summer! (Yep, that jewelweed works great for poison ivy!!)
Anyhow, best of the best to all you lovely ladies!!!
DizzyDaffodil ~ Susann

I will miss you, too, Dizzy. Wow, those packages you sent to me were overwhelming - you were so generous. I wanted to have the opportunity to send too much to you in a swap sometime! LOL
Maybe we will get to do some other type of swap sometime.
I wondered where you've been. I'm sorry you are leaving us. Hopefully, you can join us again just like a few other members have done. And I of course hope your husband is doing well and stays healthy.
Oh Dizzy, hate to hear this. I've been wondering about you too girl. Hope everything gets better, its tough when you start feeling so stressed out. Wish you and your family well! Come back when you can. You know you can always stop in and just speak:)

Susann-So sorry to hear you are leaving us hope to see you back with the group real soon.
Kimberly-Your July swap box went out today. Hope you like what I sent. I hope I didn't repeat anything I sent last month.
To both Sues, I didn't realize it was so late when I posted but both boxes were shipped yesterday, so you should both get them tommorrow or Friday. I made it sound like they wouldn't ship till today. My SIL forgot to give me the conf. #'s but I know they're shipped.
Remy, think they'd ship those pizza's COD?
Susann, I, too, am so sorry that you are leaving our group. Whenever I look at my bottle of gold, I always think of you! You do know that anytime in the future that you feel that you want to come back, we will welcome you with open arms.
Well, I'm back home again, and hope everyone is having a great day! The advantage of being on the road is I get to stop and look around at different nurseries, and shops.
Carol, your package will be in the mail to you tomorrow, I do hope you like what I've selected for you because I've found things for you in a 150 mile radius of me.LOL I will post the delivery confirmatin numbers when I close up the package/packages.

Shirley my box arrived today.
ty so much for a wonderful box. DH will get out in the AM and plant the things
Sorry i have been MIA. I thought the knee situation was fixed. it was for a bit. Now its both knees. I cant hardly walk. i spend most of the time sitting with them straight out supported by a pillow. and to top it off my stupid self tried to remove some brush 2 weeks ago from at edge of our woods. There went the back too. Dr did blood work today. I get results in coulple days. he thinks i have an infection in my joints or the rheumatoid arthritis is majorly flaring up.
Ive even missed some good stuff on the Co-Op!
Will try to get my partners box out by Saturday Morning. DH can do it then.
My box had
red snowman candle
christmas ball ornament
christmas favorites cd ( i will enjoy this)
02 cool water misting fan.......this is nice ty! will make sure i keep it on my gardening wagon next time i can get out
reindeer note pad
singing stuffed penguin
bearded iris: cozy calico, amain, feedback, arkansas skies
daylily: spacecoast sonata, lion king, bradley bernard, christmas is, frankies fantasy, firestorm
Sue, don't think I included the name or photo, but I'll get it to you, they are like triple blossoms, very top heavy, take my word for it, plant them very deep, you'll think they won't come up, because they're so deep, they will! I've suffered for years with these popping up and falling into the dirt when they bloom, this past year they didn't. But had to wait till the foliage died back to go dig them up. Are those the biggest daffodil bulbs you've ever seen? LOL, they're MONSTERS!!!!!!!!!!
Hope you enjoy, I'll send you a pic and a name! Also, thats not all of your hostess gift, other will be sent with your daylily box which is going out tommorrow (Friday) so you should have it on Monday. (Ok, its NOT a daylily, but something you want! Wonder what? LOL, have fun wondering!!!!!!!!!!!!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! in July! LOL (Well when a girls got a bed ready something needs to sleep in it!!!) *giggles*
They are soaking they're little footies right now and will be packed up first thing! Hope you like! I was able to add some you asked for and some you didn't, but I think you'll be happy. After you get them, I'll send you pics of the blooms from my garden. (Don't want to spoil the surprise!) I have them tagged/named for you. I'm so excited! I hope you like them!
I'm sorry to here you are having such problems with your knees. I'm glad that your husband is being a sweetie and helping you : )
It sounds like you had some fun being on the road! I like to stop at places too. Gary used to hate that. But he is getting better about it.
I think Hummingbirddaisy got disneyed or decided to quit GW. For some reason, I feel she couldn't post anymore.
Kim, if I remember right, I'm your receiving partner. I'm telling you, please don't feel stressed to get a box out to me, actually, I will be really upset if you hurt yourself worring about a stupid box. You take care of yourself, when your knees are better send it when you can. Enough said! You just worry about taking care of yourself!
Girl my knees are going too, runs down a long line of women in my family, I dread it, but it almost on me, my Mom had a knee replacement and they had to go back in, now they're waiting for that one to heal so they can do the other knee. Not looking forward to it.
SASSYD YES YOUR RIGHT THEY ARE VERY NICE BIG BULBS & THANKS for letting me know to plant them deep for i don't like droopy plants :))))
HERE IS THE UP-DATE AS TO WHO HAS RECEIVED IF i HAVEN'T
MARKED YOU & YOU RECEIVED PLEASE LET ME KNOW .
all boxes should be mailed by saturday july 28th .

SueG I'm glad you liked everything, maybe your dd will let you borrow her eye gel mask, lol. I hate our little bee got broken, dang it, thought it was too cute. I'm so embarrassed, I realized less than an hour after that box shipped that I had forgotten your Christmas ornament, I'm so sorry. And I would have wrapped stuff in Christmas paper but, with moving last spring, it all went in the trash, for me at that time, it was easier than something else to take care of and move. I need one of those containers for wrapping paper. Anyway, hope you enjoy.
SueK, your box was shipped today full of plants! The daylilies are part of our trade, the other surprises are part of your hostess gift for this swap. Enjoy! Here's the UPS confirm # 1z6408w10357017920 Its not showing much right now, but I'm sure she sent it 2 day so you'll get in on Monday. When you receive the box, I'll send you pics from my garden so you can keep track, lol, you gotta tell me how you like my idea for 'plant labeling'. Hey when you're out of tags you make up what you have to that works!
Hope everyone has a good weekend, we're getting a little rain right now, god we need it so desperately. I'm praying it doesn't stop for a while. Then tommorrow, it'll be back to 100 and burning everything to death like usual.
LADIES - MY BOX WILL BE A LITTLE LATER THAN EXPECTED GOING OUT THIS MONTH. MY UNCLE WAS KILLED ON HIS JOB SUDDENLY AND VIOLENTLY YESTERDAY MORNING. AS OF 10 AM THIS MORNING HIS BODY STILL HAS NOT BEEN RELEASED BY THE CORONER. HE AND MY MOM WERE CLOSE GROWING UP AND IT IS HARD ON HER. WILL POST BACK IN A FEW DAYS. SHOULD HAVE EVERYTHING OUT BY MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.
HE LEFT BEHIND A 19 YR OLD SON AND A WIFE. ALONG WITH 4 SISTERS. PLEASE KEEP THE FAMILY IN YOUR PRAYERS.
