Hello Miss Tracy!

I'm happy to have you as my swap partner. I think I can put a good box together for you. I just got in from the store but I won't say what I got!

I would like to send just plants and bulbs if that's okay with you. I've over shopped again.

Please let me know if you'd like trinkets or just plants and email me with your addy, AGAIN! I should save these addies but I don't.

I should be ready to mail out Monday or Tuesday morning. I'll post the dc# then.

Have a great day ladies
Lisa

Plants and bulbs are perfect. NO trinkets! You've spoiled me with all that you've given me already! :o) Early next week sounds great. I will start packing it all up! I'll send you my addy in a bit.

I just started using outlook express on my computer. It is a great program! It keeps an address book, calendar, to do list, sends reminder alerts and my email! This has been helping me get so much done and stay on task. Especially when I come veg by the computer. It goes "ding, did you do this yet?" and I am off to finish my job of the day! I've been adding all my trade partners email addy's and mailing addy's in there bit by bit and it has been saving me so much time!

hello
the partner I set myself up with decided they were not going to trade this month and I didn't see the post, luckly mariann call to tell me, unless someone wants to trade with 2 people or someone else in the group wants to trade with me I will set this month out. let me know.

I'm gonna get out in the garden and start doing clean up for fall tomarrow, I already trimed the plum and apple trees now I need to do the peaches, and cut back the coneflowers, bee balm, zinnias, morning glories, and cosmos.

I will be pulling up and tossing some rilly nice 4oclocks, porter weed, mexican patunias, and tropical milkweed, these were all purched from shady oaks or Brecks not from seed so they have bloomed rilly nice and are true to color.
let me know if anyone in a warmer zone would like them.

Mariann, you always have the cutest little witches. She looks like she may need to pluck that curly hair on her chin though! There's nothing like a wayward chin hair to give me a scare!

Lisa, are you one of those happy morning people? My hubby is one. He wakes up and his mind is already going at 60mph with things he has to do and things that he needs me to do and is really chatty in the morning. I'm not quite awake and need a good cup or coffee or two to get my brain up to speed.

Do a search on photobucket.com or any of the picture sights for Halloween, witches, trick or treat and you will come back with tons of cute, scary and funny pictures. right click on the html tag for websites and blogs and then click on copy, come back to GW and right click in the message box, click on paste and then the html code will appear. Hit preview and your picture will show up on the next page. Voila!

Lisa-I'm an early riser. Early morning is a great time to have some peace from the day. No one bother's me. I get a lot of my emails answered too. There are some Yahoo Groups that you can join that will personalize tags for you.

I didn't buy any Daff. bulbs this year so yours were a nice surprise. I've thought about starting cuttings in Jiffy Pellets now you've given me a good reason to try. I don't have any of the seeds either. Thank you so much!!!

If the weather cooperates your box will go out on Monday.
Hugs,

Tracy.... NO I'm not a happy early bird! I need a couple of cups of coffee to get me going, that's why I get up so early. I get my head together and then start my daily ritual of cleaning my house before work.

I'm hoping to find some goodies(plants) to add to your box before sending it out the beginong of the week.

galium, I agree, early morning is my only quite time!

Have agreat night

Well Lady's I am exactly opposit from you early morning people. I am more of a night person and I just don't like mornings and am not a coffee drinker so NOTHING can get me ready for them...lol.

I know PLENTY of people who are morning people and of course all think I am lazy for not getting out of bed before, WELL I won't say when BUT when you take into account that I didn't go to bed until around 2 am and sometimes a LOT later then that well then I am NOT lazy I just haven't had as much sleep as they did because they went to bed a 10 PM...hehe, it DOES make a difference, lol.

Michelle, I would have offered to be your partner too, but someone else beat me too it. Although I said I would sit out on this one, it is just SOOOO hard when I take a peek at the post, I keep thinking, "I WANNA PLAY TOO"!!!

The mail as slowed to a crawl the last few days, I haven't even receive a seed cat. in the mail lately. How sad is that? :(.

Tracy thanks for the tip on looking up pics on the photo sites, that never occurred to me either. I just didn't think they would have any useable ones. Now I know, and there you have another DUH moment for me...LOL.

Yay Mariann! so happy your box arrived with some surprises! Even better if it has something inside that you can use! Jiffypots are really fantastic, I couldn't get along with out them for seeds and for cuttings. But they really earn their keep when it comes to annuals, because so many annual plants don't like to be transplanted. when you use the little jiffy pots for these seeds, you don't have to worry about trasplanting the picky plants (they never know the difference!)

Mariann, that was such a nice box from Frances!

Fran, no problem. I love PB. They have such cute graphics and a nice editing tool so you can add comments to pictures and some cute embellishments too.

I hope everyone is have a great fall day. The weather is getting crisp and the leaves are starting to drop. Pretty soon we will be trick or treating. This summer flew. I can't believe it's gone already. Where does the time go?

Hello~
Sorry I've been MIA. I had terrible allergies for about 1 1/2 weeks. Could barely lift my head off the pillow. Now I'm really far behind in my yard work. I still have about 50 plants/rooted cuttings to get in the ground somewhere.

I had a nice surprise yesterday. My DH had given me a gift certificate to Glasshouse Works for Christmas. I ordered Tropicals/House Plants and in one of the Philo pots was this skinny stem with 2 serrated leaves on it. At first I thought it was a weed but I potted it up anyway. Never thought it would survive. I looked at it last week an it had buds on it. Yesterday it bloomed!

So I posted this picture on the House Plant Forum and someone said it was a hybrid Achimenes. I really wanted to know exactly what it was so I emailed Tom at Glasshouse Works and sent him this picture. He emailed me back and said that it was one of the plants they sell often called Achimenes 'Rio Rita'. How cool is that!

So how is everyone doing?? Anyone dressing up for Halloween?
Have a great evening

Hi Mariann, I'm sorry to hear your allergies have been so bad. I love the bloom on 'Rio Rita'! It's the perfect name for such a pretty bud. Lucky girl! We were invited to a Halloween party but we've decided against going. We have much more fun trick or treating with the kids. What about you? Any big plans?

Wow Mariann! very pretty surprise!

No plans for Halloween, my allergies have also been very bad. I have so much to do, still waiting on the last few tomatoes to colour up a bit. I have so many cuttings I would like to set out. Seeds to sow. Gotta get ready before those leaves start dropping! They are just now getting the first blush of colour on the dogwoods and big leaf oaks.

Hi Tracy!

Used to love trick or treat!!!! Have fun, we don't get any little kids around here.

Have a great evening everyone!

Yippppeeeee!

I am doing a happy dance! not only is it raining but the postman brought me two big boxes today!!!!

Thank you so much Mariann! a big box stuffed full of Lantanas and sedums!!! I think next year I will have a corner of the yard just filled with these lovelies! Purple Emporer, Frosty Morn, and a variageted one, I forgot the mname! and 6 or 7 stout lantanas to add to my collection! (The butterflies and hummers are going to be very happy to see these) The red is my personal fave!!! a positive beast in the yard, but the butterflies and humming birds flock to it!

Thank you for the seeds too..... suddenly I am wanting summer back again!

We don't usually get any Trick or Treaters here. There are no sidewalks or street lights. When our DD was little some of her friends would stop by but that was all. My DH use to take her out and I would stay home waiting for Trick or Treaters.

Allergies have been a little better this week.

We don't get any trick-or-treaters either. We used to live in a neighborhood where we got lots of them and I miss seeing the kids come around in their costumes. Overall though I think most of the kids now go to private parties or activities at the churches. I'm sure that is safer for them.
Sue, I was thinking I might dig some plants for you and mail a package to you this week and then it was so bone dry that the one plant I dug up looked all mutilated. Anyway, they had predicted rain for today and we are getting some rain (Hooray!) but I am reluctant to send out on a Thursday - especially with Monday being a holiday so it will be some time next week. Glad you aren't traveling this month and I am not trying to have the package get there at a certain time... just trying to play it by ear with the weather and the holiday. LOL
Glad you are feeling a little better, Mariann.

I haven't any plans for halloween either. The kids are grown and I live on a street alone so I don't get any trick or treators. I buy candy every year hoping that a few will stop by but they never do and I end up eating the candy. This year I'll have a few single dollars just in case, no candy for me!

Tracy, your package should arrive today!

Good Morning everyone! We take our kids over to the development behind our property to trick or treat. The houses on our road are pretty far apart with no street lights at all or sidewalks so we don't have any kiddies coming to our house either. It was a big adjustment after living in the city. I do miss seeing all the little ones dressed up and so excited to get more candy! The upside is that I now get to go out with my own kids and the hubby while my gang goes door to door. They have a blast and are all giggles and bubbly as they run house to house.

Lisa, I just checked your DC and it is in town! Should be knocking at your door sometime soon! I can't wait!

Such a shame that they will not survive your winter, it is touch and go here for some varieties, but most of the common ones are pretty good and they are definately worth a little extra care in fall to improve their survival rate!

I cannot imagine most of mine in pots though! I have a couple along my back fence that get about 6' tall! and my favourite red/orange easily gets a 4-5' spread! Watching the butterflies and hummingbirds flock to them more than compensates for their 'stinky' fragrance.

Of course in this climate anything that blooms all summer, even if we don't get any rain is a very very good thing!

Thanks again!

Tracy,

I'm glad you liked the package! I was kind of all over the place. I wanted the superstition iris for halloween and the rest was what was available to buy.

The sedum...isn't a sedum, it's a kalanchoe house plant. It can go outdoors in the summer but not now. It can be potted up and grown indoors.

The birdhouse towel was just to cushion the ride for the plants.

Thanks for trading!!

I'm kind of chuckling to myself because "all over the place" is pretty much what my gardens are. You hit on every major garden I have. You're a gem.

I never heard of Kalanchoe before and did a quick search on it. It is a beautiful houseplant! I was just at Old Time Pottery today buying some pretty new pots for all the hp's that Deb sent. They are so cute! This will look perfect in the larger one that I picked up. The pots look like a glazed concrete with a blue transferware pattern on them and have a crackle finish.

The weather will be gorgeous here for the next few days and I will be happily planting away in the garden and doing a little potting up. I hope you guys have a good time on your get-away weekend!

I'm going to start a new thread for sign ups for next month. Need to touch base with Michelle first. Not sure which day she's getting back from her vacation though.

I just had to chime in here. I just got my new laptop and now I have to play with it!! I'm sitting on my exercise bike and surfing the web at the same time. This is just too cool!! I love modern technology. This is supposed to be my Christmas gift..............but it's not going back in the box ever again.

OMG Louise, I can't believe I missed two plants I got from you!!! I was in such a hurry when I unpacked the box and then i set it all aside to plant on Saturday. Well, when I planted them, I missed 2 that I just found still sitting in the box! Man, my life needs to slow down a bit here! :-) Anyway, Louise also sent me Geranium - bright pink and Geranium - Johnson's blue. I can't plant them now because it's been raining all day and will continue all night. Hope they will make it until tomorrow after work!! Ugh.

Louise-I'm not sure I could ride an exercise bike and use the computer at the same time either. So glad you're having fun with it! We all need an early Christmas present.

We had fun at the Flea Market and I came home with a dry sink for my kitchen. My house is small so I don't have a lot of room to store things. The dry sink has been refurbished and looks very country. It's amazing that Flea Market finds are hard to come by these days. Everyone seems to know what they have and how much it's worth. With the Internet available finding out how much something is worth is very easy these days.

We also went to an Auction on Tuesday. There really wasn't anything I was interested in. We'll be going to another one next Wednesday. Tuesday's auction is only the 2nd auction I've been to. My DH really got a charge out of it!

I'll keep a watch for it, Sue. We had been having pretty hot weather and now all of a sudden it is supposed to go down to 40 degrees tonight. Wish there would be some "inbetween" weather! LOL This is our first night of having the heat on in the house.
I'll let you know when the box arrives.

I received my package from Sue today.
Sue, thank you so much!
Included were two different miniature roses (one white, one deep pink) - you should see them - full of blossoms! Also, some rose fertilizer stakes. My roses will really appreciate those. Also, a fern, garden gloves, some Halloween plant picks, two types of daffodils - 'Salome' and 'Jetfire' and a baggie with various kinds of seeds.
That was a wonderful package from you Sue.
Thanks so much!
Jeanne

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to say hello and happy hump day!

Mariann, your list shows that Louise has received her box. I hadn't heard yet so I just wanted to make sure that's right. Louise, have you received your box from me? I've been worried that something went wrong. Maybe you emailed me and I didn't get the email, sometimes that happens. Anyway, I hope everything arrived in great shape and that you liked it all. :-)

Amy sent white & hot pink Dianthus, Sedum, Silver mound and Canna bulbs and this great bag full of Halloween Goodies.

I'm sad to say that our growing season is officially over. We're getting our fist snowfall today. 6 more month till Spring!!!

Happy Halloween!!!

Louise I did get your email. Amy sent you a terrific box!

Sorry I've been MIA again. My DD is renting a kiosk in a local mall for the holidays. Every Christmas I always make a few things for her and her DH. Because we'll be helping her sell I have to get everything done soon. We just found out today that she is opening her kiosk Nov. 8th instead of Black Friday! That puts even more pressure on me. Anyway I'm making my DD and her DH fleece jackets. Today I'm finishing up a fleece coat I made for myself. Still have bulbs to plant and a few things to go up in my holding beds.

Happy Halloween to all my little Cracked Pots! I hope you all have a fun night and don't scare too many little children!

Mariann, wish your DD good luck on the kiosk for me! I am so excited for her. What a great idea! You'll have to post pictures of the jackets when they're finished. I loved what you made last year. I can't wait to see these!

Michele, you scared me! LOL! Happy Halloween!
