Hey, It's Almost March!
Time for the March OBF Swap!

Our Bloomin' Friends requires that you be a member of OBF in order to participant in this swap. If you would like more information about membership, please contact Shirley or Carol.

I'm choosing 4 special days in March.
Please choose 2 of these 4 days and send items relating to them to your partner. Don't tell us which 2 you choose, let it be a surprise for your partner.

The first 2 days were so easy to choose, the others, well, I had fun finding them.

1. St. Patrick's Day. I love that we are all Irish for a day! March 17th.
2. The Vernal Equinox - Ah, spring! Time to plant those bulbs! March 20th at 12:57 PM EDT.
3. Purple Day. March 26th.
4. The Pencil with an Eraser Head was patented on March 30th 1858.

St. Patrick's day and Purple items are everywhere, have fun!
I would suggest if you love a certain type of bulb you run to your GW trade page and post them there. Also, I would think that non-flowering bulbs are ok too ... garlic, onion.
I'm not going to suggest what you should send your partner for choice #4, use your imagination. LOL
Bought or homemade items are all GOOD!

Sign ups for this swap will be till March 7
Partners assigned March 8th.
Please mail your package so it will get to your partner in time for the Special Days you have chosen.

Games will appear .......

Sharon

Loving my day off work already, I slept in till 9:30! Just a light snow outside makes it so pretty and I have a coffee in my hands keeping me warm.
And already we have several lovelies who want to participate.

Participating:

Sharon/toomanyanimals
Sheri/Panhandle
michelle/micyrey
Jayeanne/pinkiris

Putting both names down will help me to start remembering who is who. LOL

michelle, I know what you mean about needing the little bit of cheering up ... seems it would start to warm up just a little with March almost here. It's only 10 degrees right and I hear the wind blowing .... burrrrr.
I was hesitant about putting anything about sending bulbs in this swap. But I think by the end of March it should be ok for almost all of us.

RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Well, I am going to join as the dates are ones I can maybe get something together before it gets too late!
I have my hands full right now with my daughter and my youngest grandson! I have been at Springfield Children's hospital all week with them. They sent him by ambulance from here on Tuesday telling us he probably has leukemia. He had all the symptoms. They told us late yesterday aft. that he didn't have leukemia (Thank God) but has lots of abnormal granulomas in his blood. So we have to take him to a blood and infection control specialist asap! Very scary as it might take a while for the referral and he is very sick! His white blood count is 1.7 and his platelets are down to 84. His spleen is extremely enlarged and he has blood bleeding out into his tissues! So for those who pray, could use all we can get!
I love all my grandkids but he's the last one for me and he was the personality plus one, the top sports one, etc. You can't help but love him if you knew him!
Anyway, enough of that this is a plant and swap group! I need a major distraction, so this will help a little!
Thanks, Melinda


 o
RE: NEW: obf march days swap

hope your grandson is going to be ok, melinda!

RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Melinda,
I'll be praying that your grandson gets diagnosed and treated really soon. What a frightening situation. Be strong and think good thoughts!

RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Melinda, Hoping that it is just a virus causing this problem with your Grandson. It is encouraging to hear it isn't leukemia. Keeping you and your family in our thoughts.

And we are happy to offer you a distraction!

RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Good morning! Thank you all for the prayers, I'm afraid we are really going to need them! I cry and pray for hours, but not when they are around. As a nurse, I know that most of this is really bad!
And we are now having thunder sleet! Lightning, thunder (very loud, shaking the windows kind) and sleet falling like a rain down pour! And I have a drs. appt. tomorrow and we need to get Stoney Matthew in to get a referral to the blood and infectious disease specialist! Couldn't be a worse time to happen!
But yet,. I got up and thanked God for this day and to bless my family and friends, as we do have a lot to be thankful for regardless! Stay warm everyone in this storm and hope you all have great days!
Big hugs, Melinda


 o
RE: NEW: obf march days swap

I forgot something that I wanted to ask! If you feel this is the wrong place or incorrect, I won't be offended at all by telling me no. I know we all have problems and are busy with our own families!
I was wondering if any of you would like to send a get well card to my grandson. He is 11 and knows that things aren't good for him right now. I know he is scared as he's asked me at least twice if he was going to die and did he have cancer. We are honest with him and he still may have a different type of leukemia we don't know yet, or some major auto immune disease that has no cure.
If any of you feel the urge to do so, you could send it to my address under Stoney Matthew Blackston , c/o Melinda Hagen and then my address. He gets his seeds here from the trades he does. He's the only one who loves to plant and work in garden with me, the others have gotten to big. Just hope they go back to it later.
I know the cards would help get his mind off of things! His 5th grade teachers sent him a balloon and sent hunting magazines, turkey country, and chicken magazines, etc. I thought that was so sweet and he was so excited as he is a hunter and country boy through and through.
Thank you all so much and if you feel this is inappropriate, I completely understand. I have never asked for something for my own family and was hard to do, but I know he'd be happy! That's my only concern right now! Melinda
If you don't feel the need to do so, that is fine, I love you all anyway!


 o
RE: NEW: obf march days swap

I'm praying for Stoney. I hope you're holding-up ok, Melinda. My prayers are with you, too.

I will love to send a card to Stoney. Consider it done. The first name is amazing - my husband's grandfather went by the name Stoney. Tell Stoney lots of garden friends are prayering for him to be well.

Also, big new for me - my new little granddaughter arrived today. Her first and middle names are Miranda Cadence. She was born today at 1:24 p.m. and weighs 6 lbs., 12 oz., and is 20 1/4 inches long.

Now I'm just hoping for a good night's sleep, especially for my daughter and son-in-law. They were up all night and had a stressful delivery, but everyone is fine.

Oh... pretty pink little girl clothes calling my name!

Jeanne

Melinda, I emailed you through GW last night for your address. Just incase that didn't go through I'm posting here. Could you email me your address, I'd like to send Stoney a card.

Or if anyone else could send me Melinda's address, that would be great.

RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Sharon, I sent you the address!
Jeanne, How wonderful! That is great news! I only have one granddgt. and she just turned 18 yesterday. My where does the time go.
I didn't mean to take over the swap with Stoney, so please forgive, but thought it would really cheer him up. He is with me right now and will be while his folks work and the roads are really bad here! He looks a tad better, but tired and not eating hardly. He asks lots of questions and is very worried and we pray a lot! He even prays at school even though they got in trouble for it last year. But now they don't hold hands at meals and do it silently!
I have 5 new kittens since last night!~ She is Siamese and they're all solid black and only one has white paws and white tip on it's tail. They look like little rats right now! LOL!
Well, hope all you ladies have a great day! Melinda

RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Good afternoon!

Melinda, my family and I would love to send your grandson a card. It will be in the mail in the morning. I can't even imagine how strong a young man he must be to be taking all this in stride. Most adults couldn't handle this. My prayers are with him and your family. Please keep us informed on how he's doing.

Jeanne, Congratulations on your new grandbaby!! It's SO much more fun shopping for little girls clothes than boys. I love my son so much but whenever I'm shopping for him I always seem to drift over to the little girls, lol. My Taylor just turned 10, so I have no clue who I'm browsing for? But, as my grandmother said... It ain't over till its over with babies. hahahaha...This from a woman who had 13!

Started shopping for my package and was wondering what size is my package suppose to be? Is it a box, bubble envie? Just curious :)

Talk to you later!
vina


 o
RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Hello Ladies!

Yes I too have been browsing and wondering size of package, bubble, small flat rate, med box ect....

Melinda! My heart goes out to you, Stoney, and your family...my baby is 11 as well and I just can not even begin to imagine what you all are going through but wanted to let you know you are all in my prayers =) We will be sending something as well.

Congrats Jeanne on the new grandbaby, LOL I bet you are over the moon =)

We too have a prego mama kitty....lol its anyday for her now....Still doing a little wintersowing here and there saved up close to 75+ jugs from last year and so far they are out there and Im waiting! Does anyone know what the success rate is for the wintersowing? Also when you wintersow do you water the soil and then set outside or not water it at all and set out? Still under 2-3 ft of this beautiful white stuff, more to come again this week.

Thought this was super cute and perfect timing....recycled Metal Coffee Frog Garden Art...

Jayeanne


 o
RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Sorry Ladies, I didn't know I had to choose the size of the package.
Hmmmm, how about a bubble envelope or a small flat rate box, no bigger. Whatever works for the 2 categories you choose. But if you wanted to send a BIG Bulb, then you have my permission to go EVEN BIGGER. LOL
I hope that helps. :o)

Jeanne, the frog is very cool!

TIME FOR A GAME - I wanted to do something like a March Madness bracket game. Too hard. So this is what I came up with.
Hmmmm, what to call it.

GOING MAD IN MARCH - GW STYLE

You will not be able to look the answers up, they will be about me, my garden, what is happening that day, or something that catches my eye.

1. ROUND ONE - I will ask 6 questions, one at a time. Once you have answered one of the Round One Questions correctly, you will have moved onto Round Two. Don't answer anymore of the Round One Questions.

2. ROUND TWO - The 6 winners from Round One will be playing in Round Two. I will ask 3 Round Two Questions, one at a time.
Again, once you have answered one of the Round Two Questions correctly, don't answer anymore of them.

3. FINAL ROUND - The 3 winners from Round Two will play the Final Round. One final question will be asked, Who ever gets this question right .... Wins.

*****Once you give an answer, don't answer again till I've told you if you were right or wrong. If you have given a wrong answer, then you can guess again.******

I will post the First Round One Question later tonight.

*****Once you give an answer, don't answer again till I've told you if you were right or wrong. If you have given a wrong answer, then you can guess again.******

RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Here is my Ahi.
I had a friend in Minn. who talked her husband into letting her buy 2 Bengals. They raised and sold 2 littlers of them to pay the cost of the first 2. Ahi and a brother were all that was left of her last litter. She just wanted to be done with having so many cats in her house. LOL She sold him to me for $100 and sigh, the price of a plane ticket to get him to Michigan. I know that's a lot of money, but for a Bengal, it was a steal. My first and last cat that wasn't a rescue.

Annie

RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Nice box Annie! I just want to say to all who have sent and are sending things to Stoney Matthew, we are receiving and he is quite cheered up by this! He isn't a lot better, but we have about 50 lab tests still pending from the oncologist, blood disorder, and infectious control drs.. So hopefully we will know something this week. He still can't go to school, or do any sports, or actually anything strenuous right now. It's sad, but he really doesn't feel like it anyway! Just wanting to thank you all, but he will also when all is said and done. Thanks again so much! Hope everyone has a wonderful evening (what is left of it) and a great day tomorrow! Night, Melinda


 o
RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Beth, I have your package ready to be mailed tomorrow so I hope it makes it there in good time and you like everything. This was a fun swap!
I don't think I've posted a picture of my new granddaughter Miranda here for OBF, Today she is one week old. Yesterday she was wearing her Gamecock outfit, but she looks pretty sleepy so I don't think she watched much of the game on TV.
So glad Stoney is enjoying the mail. I have him in my thoughts and prayers.
Jeanne


 o
RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Melinda, it must be hard waiting and Stoney not feeling well. We are happy to play a small part in making the wait go by just a little faster.

Annie, what a great box from Jayeanne.
Sharon


 o
RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Jeanne, what a beautiful granddaughter!
They are so perfect at that age! All you want to do is kiss, hug, and cuddle them!
Yes, it is hard waiting. If all these 50 or so tests don't show something, I don't know what we'll do. You want them to show nothing, but you want something also! I'm praying for something easily treatable,of course!
Everyone have a wonderful Sunday with your family, in your yard, or whatever makes you happy! Big Hugs, Melinda


 o
RE: NEW: obf march days swap

Jeanne, Awww, she is just soooo cute! As Melinda predicted .... I just want to pick her up and hug and kiss her. LOL
I had to look up 'Gamecock' outfit. LOL

Thanks, everyone, for the compliments on Miranda. She does look like a sweet baby. I hope to get up to NC to meet her later this week.
