NEW: Second Fabulous Favorites Seed Robin

lisam627_ohio_z6(Z5 OH)November 1, 2005

To those of you that participated in the first Fabulous Favorites Seed Robin, I want to let you know that the Second Fabulous Favorites Seed Robin was mailed today. She has flown the coop to BogartBaby carrying 480 seed packets! I will email the rules to you all again as a reminder...but I'm sure you all know what to do!

I provided several of my favorite seeds to each and every one of you, but the one I want to mention is the Black Cherry Tomato seed! This is my very favorite cherry tomato...it so sweet that it almost dripps with sugar...and the ripened color is very unique. Attention is always drawn to this tomato either at the table or in the garden! So I hope you grow and enjoy!

For your tracking, my Delivery Confirmation Number is:

0304 1560 0003 6303 6125

If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to email me! Now...let the fun begin again! - Lisa

It's here,it's here !!! I already looked at everything and picked out 7 packets with 4-5 seeds in each. Lisa, actually there are 483 packs of seeds in that box. I added other seed packs to round it to an even 500. Also added my other fav. Lantana"Dallas Red" and "Pink Caprice"
that were covered with blooms and butterflys this year.
Lisa, thank you so much for the surprise envelope with the seeds in it. I am itching to get those planted, there is also a little surprise for you in the box. I will be leaving for the post office shortly to mail it out. Will post later again with the confirmation #.
Thanks to all that participated, this is by far the biggest Robin( starting to resemble Big Bird)that I have ever seen. Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.

Thanks Deanie! Glad you liked the "Big Bird"! I have one Lantana plant that I have brought inside the last two fall seasons (so it won't freeze). The flowers are both pink and yellow and I just love it! I'm sure the "Dallas Red" is just as lovely.

Sue...glad you're ready...can't wait to hear if you find something you like! - Lisa

What an interesting concept. Please let me know.

Thanks for the update! Didn't mean to sound impatient! Perhaps that 'preview' button has some advantages. I have someone bring my deliveries inside when I'm at work so it's nice to know a general idea of what day. (If it went Saturday it probably would have been here today). Anyhooo, I guess you can tell I'm ready LOL! Even got a couple 'favorites' packed up for the rest of you. Had to drum up something new since some of you got my favorites in the blue bird. It's not hard though since everything is beautiful!!

Girls - It touched down tonight so no need to worry! They never changed the DC slip. The last one (6149) is still on it! Sometimes they don't scan them when they leave the PO, either. I inquired about that once and they said that not all PO's do it and that you only pay for confirmation the package was delivered.

Anyhooo, it's here! Thanks for the extra seeds :). Another fun robin. It's loaded with all different kinds of seeds to pick through. I'll have it packed up and at the PO Saturday morning. By the time I get to the PO tomorrow night, I will have missed the evening send-off. I'll drop Nancy a note (I owe her an email anyway) to let her know to look for it early next week.

I'll post up the new DC number and my favorites when I get back from the PO. I think I'd better peel off the old DC stickers LOL!

She's all ready to go - the delivery confirmation number is going to be 0304 1560 0003 6306 6156.

I found a lot of new things to try out and added an extra 20-30 packets on top of what I traded. She also had an unexpected visiter - GW member adkmountaingirl came over to trade for some hollyhocks and morning glories :) She's doing a hollyhock 'memory' garden in honor of a lost love one so it was really cool for her to have so many varieties to choose from!

Now, on to the favorites. Everyone is getting two annual packets from me. They are in a separate bag with your GW names on them.
1) Intense purple amaranthus. You've got to find a spot for this one - it's a real show stopper! I've seen many requests for this one on the trade boards - very popular this year.
2) Eyeball plant - aka Spilanthes oleracea. It's hardy in the warmer climates (Z6-8). I haven't tried it but read you can use it in your salad. Puts out a constant bloom right up until a heavy frost. It produces a lot of seed for trading, too!

Nancy gets a couple of extra things! Nancy - there's a pack of Delphinium in there for you from you want list. I can only narrow down the variety as a Belladonna. It gets 4-5 feet tall. It is a TRUE blue. It's a light blue - 'slate' is the best I can describe the color. It's a nice bushy plant - truely one of my favorites. For your butterflies - there is a package of Butterfly Asclepsis "Ice Ballet". It's white so goes with anything haha!

Off to the PO now - I know everyone is waiting anxiously!

Thanks again, Lisa, for another wonderful robin!

She's gone but got a new confirmation number. It's 0305 2200 0001 1998 8248. $9.75 to mail - someone along the chain might see if they can find a smaller box to save a little on postage.
Have fun!

Thanks Nancy for your nice posts and quick turn around! Your seeds sound great...and I'm glad you found some that you like. Salvia - no matter what the color - is always a welcome flower in my gardens. They really flourish here in Ohio with limited care. If you try my tomato seeds - I'm confident you will like them. They are very delicious and sweet and really add a nice color to a salad! Let me know what YOU think if you try them!

Myann...hope you're ready for a fat bird to land on your porch...and this is a Robin...not a turkey! Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving..and God Bless! - Lisa

WHAT A FUN WAY TO SPEND AN EVENING! Tons of great stuff in there. I was happy to find some unusual hollyhock seeds and some ornimental grasses too! There were lots of them so I made seperate bags for each in the box.

Tried to divide some of the seeds into annual bags and perrienal bags. As with over 500 seeds it got to be confussing trying to sort thorugh what I could not live without. lol. The sepereate bags of vines, herbs and veggies helped alot.

Arrived Safely and will send out tommorow with del conf 0304 1560 0003 9835 4225

MARISHA2 - sorry I can not find your trade list when I went to look it up gardenweb said, Sorry, I can not find that file. I just sent you afew of my favorites as I could not find what you were looking for. I am sure you will find lots of goodies here!

Myann I may have been updating my list when you tried to access it. That's the only reason I can think GW wouldn't have it available.

I couldn't find lists for Sguanzon, DJM906 and Mellon! So what's a girl to do??

Lisa, you are so right about small things making life fun and interesting. I just became a grandma again the evening before Thanksgiving : ) That little Cordelia Anne is going to make things fun around here!! ( I just had to work that in somewhere...lol)
Can't wait for that Robin to get here now!! Over 500 packs of seeds?....Whoo-hoo!! What fun! I'll see if I can plump that Robin up a little more!!

OH MY GOSH!! The robin landed here today and it's fat with 465 packs of seeds!!! I've spent hours sifting through them and picking out goodies to try. I can't think of a better way to spend a cold blustery evening ; )
I just took a break to let you all know it arrived safely and I'm gathering seeds packets to replace the 24 that I took out and adding more to plump it up and increase the variety!!

Mellen, I now realize I couldn't find a trade page for you because I spelled your name wrong (Mellon)! My apologies :)
DJM906 you are the only one I can't find a trade list for but your page says you like fragrant flowers so I'll be sure to add some.

I'm including one of my favorites for all of you and that is the Chocolate Silk Morning Glory. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Myann thank you for the Hollyhock seeds : ) I have always loved them as they remind me of my mother's garden when I was a child. They always grew by the back gate.

Lisa, thanks for the seeds you sent also! It will be fun to try them out : )I hope I don't send you the same ones I sent before, I forgot to write them down!! lol...

I will post again tomorrow after I've been to the PO.
Thanks Lisa, and everyone for a great Robin!

Hi Everyone!
The Robin is in the air again as of early this afternoon....confirmation #0304 1560 0003 6303 6194.
I put everything in a new box that was a little bit smaller than the one it arrived in ( so we aren't paying postage for the cardboard)... but it's still a BIG BIRD!!
I added a small envelope for each one following me and didn't count how many seed packets I put in them but otherwise I took out 24 packs and added 50 packs. I tried to put in varieties that weren't so common in order to spice things up a bit : )

Lisa, thanks for the congrats on the new grandchild, now I have a baker's dozen (13)! Hey, I'm not THAT old, I just started young...lol

Thanks to everyone who contributed...I really enjoyed this RR.
Mary

P.S. Merry Christmas to you all!

Greetings everyone! Well the bird is stuffed back up and ready to fly again. Only thing is I am snowed in. We got pounded with snow. Roads are clearing up a bit, but the flight won't be until tomorrow.

On another note. I took out 8 packs and added in 55+. I put in a lot of plants that were not in the mix already to spice it up a bit. My favorite added was campanula-"cherry bells".
The confirmation number will be: 03041560000363036200.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday Season. Thanks again Lisa for hosting such a fabulous Robin. Looking forward to future robins. ~Heather

Wow - 55 packs of seeds added! Super job Heather. I understand about the snow...we got our first major snowstorm yesterday. We got about 3-4 inches - but the weather man was promising us 6-7.

Campanula - cherry bells...what a nice addition! Thanks for playing and moving the box out so quick despite your bad weather!

Tina...I hope all is well with you during this busy season and you are ready to receive the box! Thanks - Lisa

Lisa, you must be getting what we just went thru! It's snowing here again as I type, grrrrrrrrrrrr.
I did take out about 30 packs, and I just added 35+ tonight. The robin will take flight again in the morning if we don't get snowed in, LoL. The kid's had a "snow day" yesterday, so they was out making igloo's by 8am. That was their only "gat out of jail free" card. If they miss another day due to weather, they will have to start making them up at the end of the year. A couple of years back, they had 9 days to make up. They didn't like that one bit (neither did I).

Ok, everyone stay warm and safe!
Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas.

Hi Tina...just wondered if you made it out into the snow storm to get your package mailed? We've had snow on and off all weekend...the way it's going, we will definitely have a white Christmas this year!

Tina...please post your delivery confirmation number so we can all track the package. Thanks for your contributions and being a part of this Robin...sounds like you found lots of seeds you like!

Melinda and Marge...hope you two are ready for the Robin...she could be flying in for a landing there real soon! Thanks again, Tina for moving her out so quickly and have a great holiday season with your family! - Lisa

Hi Lisa,

I am so sorry to have to do this but I am going to have to drop out of this due to some unforeseen circumstances! I am going out of town for the holidays and have had some other situations come up! I really hate to miss out on this and I hope this doesn't cause any trouble, I was really looking forward to participating in this. I hope everyone has a merry christmas and a happy new year!!

60 Degrees - how lucky you ladies are in Arkansas! It's supposed to rain tonight and wash away all our snow...so we won't be having a white Christmas this year. You girls did great getting through that fat box and mailing her out again!!! Thanks so much for being a part of the Robin, Melinda and Marge!

Ara, hope you're ready!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and Happy New Year! - Lisa

Hi Ladies. Here's another update: One of the girls here emailed me that Ara had posted in the Bulb and Trinket Robin that she was going to be spending a lot of time in Oklahoma to be with her sister who recently had brain surgery.

Sue, Doris and Mary Ellen....we'll have to be patient until she returns. I'm sure Ara will forward the box when she arrives home.

Ara, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Please contact me when you are able so that we can get that Robin off the ground and flying once again. Take care, Ara...we all look forward to hearing from you! - Lisa

Hi everybody! Just wanted to drop in and post the confirmation number for this package. I have it ready to go out on monday. I was trying to make it in the mail today but our mailman came by too early and our PO is not open on Saturdays. It is going to Sue in Arizona and the number is 0103 8555 7495 5786 6583.
I hope you guys have a wonderful robin and lots of great seeds and I am sorry that I had to pull out of this one!!

Ok everybody! The birdie is flying to Sue as of today. I didn't even think about the postage change when I printed the label and I put it to mail out on monday and it only charged me the 7.70. I will just have to see if they send it back to me for the additional postage. Maybe our po won't notice it and send it anyways. They do stuff like that a lot. Well, have a good rest of the robin guys!

I got the box! It was waiting for me when I got home last night. I can't believe how much is in that flat rate box - it's pretty overwhelming. What a great robin! Thanks so much Lisa for keeping this going.

I'll be going through it today and will get it out by tomorrow to Doris. Doris are you ready?

Oh yes, found some great seeds, and I thank you for the lovely envelope of really nice ones. I was quite excited as these were all seeds I did not have. Sue also enclosed some seeds that I had been looking for. All in all, I made out pretty good! there surely is a nice assortment of seeds in the box. It was mailed out today and I do have the confirmation number which is still in the car! Will post later. It's aimed for Mellon next!

Hi Everyone,

Just a short note here to let you all know that this Robin is now concluded as it has finally made it home to me. I want to extend a special thanks to each and every one of you who participated in this Robin and who ultimately made it the success that it was. Your joint efforts in keeping this box moving - especially through our busy holiday season - are commendable!

I also want to thank each and every one of you for the special seeds you included for me - your thoughtfulness will not be forgotten especially when all of your flowers are blooming brightly in my gardens this summer! Spring cannot come too quickly for me this year as I have much to be thankful for and many seeds to plant. Again...it was a pleasure to have met you all here and thanks for sharing - you girls were great! I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to have hosted a Robin with such a nice group. Hopefully we will all meet again for another Fabulous Favorites Robin next fall! - Lisa

Hi Lisa
I just want to THANK YOU again for hosting this robin. You made it SO easy for us by including the confirmation stickers and address labels. You also made is extra nice by sending a special packet of seeds for us individually.
I also want to thank everyone that participated because you all contributed to it's success. I will see your faces (imagined in my mind) in your flowers when they bloom.
Hope you all have a fruitful growing season and a beautiful garden.
Until next time, I'll be in the garden~
Mary
