One seed can start a garden.
One smile can lift a spirit.
One candle can light a room.
One conversation can start a friendship.
One step can begin a journey.
One heart can love many.
One person can make all the difference.

I love this poem! I received this from a GW member years ago for Valentine's Day.
So this Swap is dedicated to all of you who make people like me smile :)

Good morning! :)
WOW! We are off to a terrific start!

Welcome! Welcome!

jayw1957, newbies are always welcome to join in on the fun.

Alana, Annie and Ellie...the more the merrier! :) Who doesn't love Valentines? The cards, the candy...the candy! :)

Annie, I received this card when I was a newbie, when we did the Secret Valentine Swap. I just loved this poem so much that I put the card in my garden binder for safe keeping. My daughter was using my binder the other day for a school project, and came across the card. I believe it was fate because I was trying to come up with a theme for this month.

I'm joining in. Thanks, Vina for a fun swap idea. I ordered the flat rate bubble envelopes after you suggested them & received the box last week, so have plenty to fill this year!

Can we be creative like this?

...... diant H us
........ lob E lia
sweet pe A
........... b R occoli
. chocola T e

How will we know if our partner likes chocolate or prefers caramel or fruit flavored candy?

My favorite candy is cinnamon tic tacs and that dates me a bit because they're hard to find. I found the Christmas ones included cinnamon with the white mints. They last for years, so why not?

RE: new: mnf: feb: h-e-a-r-t swap

I've got 2 words! Yay! :)

Been trying to get my HEART together, but the kids & I have been sick AGAIN this week, so I haven't felt like doing much. Also didn't want to pack anything right now & send some germs along with it. That would be a horrible valentine!! So I'm waiting until we've been feeling better for at least a few days before trying to put my package together.
I don't know what is going on this winter, usually we don't get sick but maybe once every winter(and that's usually just a cold!). Since we homeschool, we're usually kept away from the flu & junk.
Maybe it's the warm weather we're having that's making all these super bugs come out of the woodworks, I dunno.
This week, we've battled pinkeye & strep throat. We've already had the flu TWICE this winter. UGH....will it ever end??


 o
RE: new: mnf: feb: h-e-a-r-t swap

Afternoon! Happy Friday!

Bunny, so sorry you and your bunch are feeling so yucky! I agree, I think the weird weather shifts are why colds and things are lingering on and on this winter. I have been having feelings of allergies (watery eyes, blocked nose, etc. ) most of the winter. That never happens! Usually it lasts about a month in the fall and a month in the spring, till the weather sorts itself out. Not this year! Today it's 40, and tomorrow in the single digits...then next week...I see back up in the 40's. This is totally unheard of for Upstate NY. We usually have at least a foot of snow right now?

The weather around the country has been a little whacky this winter to say the least.

Can't wait for spring! :0)

CONGRATS ON THE 2 BINGO WORDS!!

Does anyone else already have some words on the board?

Only 1 more day for sign-ups and then PARTNERS!!!! :) I'll be posting them on Sunday :)

I have one word, too. Vina, how did you survive the sleepover? I imagine you're toast today, but thankfully there's another day of weekend to recover. U R brave! Thanks for hosting the swap.

Melissa, how many more days/weeks until your baby is due? I've been thinking of you as our son had his 18th birthday last week and our daughter turns 21 next month. I was pregnant this time of year twice. It seems like just a moment ago I was counting those last days of pregnancy.

Have a great Valentine week everyone!

Ellie~ I sent you an email asking for your addy. If you didn't receive it, please email me directly- hazelnutbunny@hotmail.com
I'll have your package out as soon as I know where to send it too! :)

Corrine~ I've got a bit less than 3 weeks before the baby gets here, so I'm feeling REALLY tired. And round. VERY round. LoL!
My 2nd son's birthday is the 25th, so he's hoping he'll get a baby sister for his birthday. :P I've got 3 kids with birthdays in April....that's an EXTREMELY busy month for us! Funny how that worked out! If this baby waits until March, it'll be a first for us in that month. The others are spaced out- August, September & December, though my son born in August shares a birthday with his grandma, and my daughter shares her birthday with me in September. We like to double things up around here, I guess! :)

RE: new: mnf: feb: h-e-a-r-t swap

Oh my, I've been so busy, I totally forgot that bingo words were beginning. I do have two so far so not too bad.

We took our son down to a special brunch for students who will starting at the University of Cincinnati this fall. It was nice. Learned some new facts and had a good lunch. The best part is the time spent with our son. We left late Friday and got a motel since we needed to be on campus by 8:30 and it's a three hour drive. The weather was decent too but cold.

Shirley, we're just bouncing packages back and forth, lol. I have your address so no worries there. Have actually started on the package so need one more thing and it will be on its' way.

Have a good week ahead all. Margo

Yay, got another bingo word! :)

My hubby surprised me with a valentine's treat last week. He took the day off work on Friday, then while I was out getting groceries, he packed up the kids and took them to Grandma's. When I got home, he told me to pack enough clothes for 2 days. He had booked a room at a local inn for 2 nights! When we got to the room, he had a huge bouquet of roses & carnations and a box of chocolate turtles waiting.
He also had a picnic supper of cheese, grape juice from our local winery, fruit and bread. He had the entire weekend planed, and I had NO IDEA!!!
I've been so busy trying to get well & get the kids better, that I didn't have a clue he was up to anything. This is only the 2nd time in 18 years he's surprised me like this! It was a wonderful weekend. I just wish I felt better & could enjoy it more!


 o
RE: new: mnf: feb: h-e-a-r-t swap

Two more Bingo words.

Bunny, that was a nice thing your hubby did and very deserving. Sorry you didn't feel better.

I am doing three swaps this month and will be boxing all three and getting them mailed by Thursday. Will post DC for this one asap. I am trying to concentrate and make sure everyone gets the right box. :)

Happy Valentines to all and I hope you had a nice day.

Margo

Good Afternoon!

Bunny, that is such a romantic story! My husband is not the romantic type...I won't even go into the story about how I got a new set of tires for my birthday one year. This was before we got married, so I knew what I had coming, lol! So sorry you felt so under the weather.

Margo, I know exactly how you feel about a lot of swaps this month. I must have been crazy! I am signed up 3 going out now. 1 more that I'm waiting for my seeds come from an order, and 2 private swaps. I also hope that everyone gets the right package, lol! But, trying to get in the last seed swaps before I start sowing is too tempting to pass up :)

This afternoon I'm going to start setting up all my shelves, trays and all that wonderful misc. stuff that I've had packed away since last summer. I think I'm more excited right now than at Christmas! I've got my seeds MOSTLY in order of what I'm sowing. I need some more soil. Even my kiddos are excited to help this year. Billy can't wait to stir the big spoon to mix my potting mix and Taylor is going to make labels for every pot. :) They are both getting their own trays to start whatever they want too this year too....can't wait till Sunday! :)

Have a super day everyone!

I received my heart box today from Melissa (hazelnutbunny).
There was a cute miniature hummingbird feeder,Easy grow flower seeds - 3 pkg., chocolate, red gardening gloves and a gnome, tea and a tote bag which is really going to come in handy when I go to California this fall to the National Heirloom Exposition at the Sonoma County Fair grounds. I needed something lightweight so I am not carrying around a heavy bag filled with stuff. Thank you so very much Melissa for the Valentine.

Happy Day!!

Vina,
I admire your family event of planting seeds! I need to get my family on board like that doing a mega planting session.

I was so glad I didn't have any winter sown jugs outside during our ice storm because they would have been crushed. I'm still picking up the mess outside. I uncovered a Pulmonaria the other day in the backyard & it was blooming pink smiles at me! I was so excited I yelled out & my son wanted to know what was wrong. Nothing, just excited I see a pink bloom from under that mess!

Last week we had mild weather & our friends' were out of town, so could lend their truck. Then I talked my guys into hauling horse manure + bedding to our edible gardens. Most of it was done by my son & I during the day. We managed to get 7 pick up loads over 3 days. By that 3rd day we only did one load because the garden is full & my son was too sore. My hubby cleaned up our friends' truck superbly & filled up the gas tank so that they will lend it to us again for other garden hauling.

I want to winter sow some perennials and some cold weather vegs.... BUT, we have things to be done 1st ...

--bookcase switcheroo as we bought one to swap with the family room one & put one in the spare bedroom for my crafts & gardening stuff (books, labels, notebooks, etc.)

--food prep as son is having a group of friends over tomorrow night for teriyaki chicken & sushi. Teens can really eat, so I have work to do after I get the bookcases switched.

I worked 2 substitute teaching jobs plus my afterschool job and had a 4-H meeting this week and teach at our homeschool co-op tomorrow, so am exhausted already before this party.

Plus call me crazy or what? Hubby & I have made plans to go to my favorite nursery & buy 50 primroses for $50 (& use a $10 off coupon), then bring them back to camp to plant in the entrance gardens for some spring cheer. Things are finally looking much better after the storm, but the primroses will be great!!

Rose, I have some fun HEART things ready for you in an envelope and though I thought I could go out to dig plants for your shade garden I am 2nd thinking it all. I might just add some seeds to the packed envelope. I hope I have energy left after this week to get a picture & pack it up to go out on Monday morning. I want you to get it soon!

The songbirds are singing every morning and busily building their nests already. Spring is on it's way.

Rose - your HEART package is going out today in a flat rate bubble envie (Thanks Vina for suggesting to use them.) I skipped taking a pic & you can post one if you'd like or just list the contents. I couldn't get myself to dig anything up in the rain yesterday, so there are seeds inside instead.

We didn't switch bookcases after all & that helped me take the time to package up your HEART. I'll post the DC # tonight after I mail it today.

Wednesday the 22 is World Thinking Day for all Girl Scouts everywhere. On this one day every year Girl Scouts are given a theme. This years theme is: We Can Save Our Planet. It is teaching kids to go green, recycle and even sow seeds. I got so excited about this years theme that we are doing activities all next week for it.

Have a great Friday!

Hi Everyone! Just wanted to let Melissa know that her HEART is on it's way! It should be there Tuesday. The DC# is 03112550000063214205.
I left my list of Bingo words out in Minney and my daughter hasn't emailed them back to me yet. I had 3 words, don't think I have any more than that. DRAT!

Hey Everyone!
Ellie, hope all is going well with you!
Vina, I forgot you had the words, yes, please email them to me, Thanks! Hope you have a great day tomorrow! I'm going to try to do more WSing, altho our weather is more like early spring here - I keep waiting for the axe, uh, I mean, the snow to fall!
AND!!! I got my HEART from Margo today! Margo, what a great package! I received: a pair of pink heart slippers, red gladioli bulbs, Avon moisture therapy handcream, a chocolate/marshmellow heart, hand sanitizer, a "go red" pin, "hot lips" chip clip, and a beautiful glass vase with red roses on it!
AND 6 packs of valentine/heart themed seeds: candytuft, pink malva, pink dragonflower, evening primrose, pink baby's breath and King of Hearts bleeding heart. I think that takes care of the lack of pink in my flower gardens! Margo, thank you so much!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Shirley!

DC # 0310 2640 0002 3118 6665 for Rose sent on Friday with expected arrival Tuesday because Mon. is a holiday.

Today, instead of 50 primroses we just bought 8 because I couldn't use the coupon & decided that was too much. All day we had wind, rain & only 39 degree high, so I didn't plant them. Had a great day with hubby at another gardener's place, nursery, hardware store, & Fred Meyer bringing home some necessary things including a new watch for me & a strawberry pot to plant sedums for hubby.

RE: new: mnf: feb: h-e-a-r-t swap

I have another Bingo word, 4 more to go.

Shirley, so glad you enjoyed you package. I always enjoy putting them together but worry it is enjoyable for the receiver.

Corrine, don't you hate it when there are stipulations to the coupons? What difference does it make what you use it on? I am sure they can afford the loss. I hope your 8 do good for you.

Heard from Cryptid and since the post office is closed tomorrow, I am sure his package will arrive on Tuesday. I always enjoy his packages so looking forward to it.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. My daughter came home from OSU for the weekend. She and I have had an enjoyable time. Did some shopping because I needed an outfit for my aunt's memorial next weekend. JC Penneys was having great sales, bought a new pea coat, pants, three tops, and a pair of jeans for daughter all for 57 dollars. Haven't bought myself anything new in awhile so was pleased with my deal.

Only 4 more bingo words left for me & 9 more days of February.

Did you all notice it's leap year? What are you doing on Feb. 29 -- your extra day? I've not decided yet because I'll be out of town at a conference for our camp Sun-Wed that week & not sure what energy I'll have left after our 3 hr + drive back home through traffic in 2 large cities. I wish the conference would end at a different time. Oh, well.

Yes, saving that coupon until the exp. date 3/31/12. I might feel "rich" and spend it later. Their prices on plants & supplies are a bit higher. Hellebores were 12.99 in a square pot taller & a bit larger than the standard 4" pot. At a local hardware store they were $8.99 I think. I most remember the heuchera because they were 4.99 at the hardware store & 2.99 at Fred Meyer compared to 8.99 at the nursery. They appeared the same plant material, pot, labels, etc. You have to be careful with plant lust while shopping there.

Have a great day,
Corrine

Vina, thanks for emailing the Bingo words - I have 5! Not that I ever win Bingo!
I'm trying to get some WS done today, it really feels strange because it is a beautiful day here, bright and sunshiny, at least 45 degrees. I've done all the salvias and agastache, and I have jugs for everything else except the milkweeds-will need to do some creative thinking for those!
Corrine - I love to go to the nurserys and see the high prices for plants that I've WSed for pennies!

THANKS! FOR SENDING MY BINGO WORD LIST TO ME AGAIN, VINA.


 o
RE: new: mnf: feb: h-e-a-r-t swap

Received my H-E-A-R-T package from Alana (poisondartfrog) - Girl, your wonderful package arrived in excellent shape, but nearly gave me a hernia carrying it into the house! I do declare your package is the heaviest I have yet received from a round robin, or any other GW swap! Small wonder why, considering the following contents:

From Alana's included list...

H is for Hummingbird-a tiny feeder is enclosed.
E is for Elephant's Ear, not so tiny as creatures go.
A is for Achillia millifolium, Red for Valentine's Day.
R is for Rosamond Coles, a Red Canna for your garden.
T is for Thunbergia alata, in this case Spanish Eyes.

The hummingbird feeder is really, really kewl! Smallish, yes, but brilliantly so, particularly considering we do not have any other hummer feeders hung-out at this time.
"Elephant's Ear" refers to a hefty, softball sized Elephant's Ear (Colocasia esculenta) corm that produces a plant with Big, BIG, heart shaped leaves! Just gotta figure where to plant it where it'll be most effective without overshadowing a whole lot of other stuff. Wow!

Red Achillea millifolium seeds (Cherries Jubilee Mix). Gorgeous! :)

Rosamond Coles Canna (3 big, heavy, glorious bulbs). Man-O-man,...these are beauties for true! Our neighbors will definitely appreciate gazing upon them as much as we!

Thunbergia alata (Black-Eyed Susan Vine - Spanish Eyes). Y'know, I've had these seeds before, but I didn't get to keep any, owing to the fact that I gave and traded them all away to others. But now,...they're baaaaaack! Lovely! :)

Also, Alana included a generous amount of Viva Lindsey's Kentucky heirloom tomato seeds, Summertime Gold Heritage tomato seeds, a red floral accented expandable vase, and a ziplock full of Dove chocolates (instantly snagged by Elly nearly at the speed of light). Since I'm allergic to indoor flowers (and floral shampoos anymore), the expandable vase will be filled with the packaging alternate suggestion of "decorative gems or stones" and artificial flowers.

Alana,...you totally rock, girl! Thank you so much! Sorry it took me this many daze to post about your package, sincerely. I've been kinda messing-up a lot, lately. I always send on time, though.

Thank you so verrrrry much for all of the fantastic goodies, and for your creative attention to theme detail!

Incidently, y'all, the Elephant's Ear corm and hummingbird feeder were both swathed in red tissue paper. Nice touch!

RE: new: mnf: feb: h-e-a-r-t swap

Happy Tuesday! :)

Corrine, got your email. Such a wonderful idea for March. Love it!

Shirley, I totally agree. I love going to the greenhouses and looking over the price tags...and then saying "got that"... "got that". For pennies on what you would pay for the plant...and the best part, I can remember getting them in trades or Round Robins on the GW. That always make my plants more special. :) Last summer when I had the Master Gardeners do a class at my house, the biggest question was where do you get such variety? BIG SMILE I said the Garden Web of course :)

Wow! Cryptid! That sounds like an amazing package!

Hmm, is it polite to type with your mouth full??! LOL!!

H- Helenium seeds
E- End of the alphabet ZINNIA seeds and a baggie of ERASERS (great for homeschooling!)
A- Agastache apricot spritz seeds and A-B-C- folders (also wonderful for homeschool!!)
R-Rudbeckia cherry brandy seeds

Melissa, glad you liked the HEART! I hope the chocolates weren't squished! Hope the seeds do well for you!
Vina, I was outside checking the gardens today, and I found myself thinking "How did that get here", and "where did that come from" and guess what, they were all from swaps and trades that I did over the past year! I got some really pretty plants. It's going to be exciting to see all of them blooming this year. I hope the Hardy Geranium comes back, it was from Rose, and the groundhog buried it while digging it's hole. I filled in the hole and can only hope the plant comes back. It was a beautiful lilac color. I did get some seeds. And all the iris's you and someone else sent are poking their heads up! So are the Salvias that Alana sent. And the squirrels didn't get the mini tulips and daffodils in the front bed! YES!!! One victory for me!

3 packages of bulbs, 1 shallots and 2 crocosmia which I am totally excited about. I grew crocosmia one summer and it did not come back.
Pocket size phillips screwdriver which will definitely come in handy.
Lindt smooth dark candy bar, slowly munching this daily. Yum
Several packages of seeds all of which are a fantastic selection.

Thank you Cryptid for the fantastic package of great items. I can't wait to plant my items this spring. Margo

I had both of those today, so now just 2 to go. I bet someone else is closer or will win today!

Vina, you've got me on edge waiting for another word.

I'm leaving for a conference today, but can check GW only at the lodge or large meeting room where I'm going because it's not available in our room. Asking (begging) our son to lend his because hubby's laptop from work is such a dinosaur it took 10 minutes to power up.

RE: new: mnf: feb: h-e-a-r-t swap

One more letter and I will have Bingo. Must remember to check tomorrow and then if my last word isn't chosen, I will have to take my list with me. I am heading to my son and dil's house to dog sit for a few days. He called to tell me he spotted a coyote down in the gully behind their house. My daughter stayed Friday night and heard it howling. Oh goodie, now I am going to be creaped out after dark. Their smallest dog would be an appetizer. It wouldn't be so bad if they had a fenced in yard.


 o
RE: new: mnf: feb: h-e-a-r-t swap

okay t's all packed up, i just have to pray i make it to the po before it closes! does anyone else live in a town where the po closes for lunch? when do they think people GO to the post office?


 o
RE: new: mnf: feb: h-e-a-r-t swap

Happy Monday!

WOW! Traveling BINGO! lol. This game is getting interesting.

Corrine, have fun at your conference.

Margo, I couldn't agree with you more about the coyote's. When I was little they would be right in the horse pastures yipping when we would be in the barn bedding them down. Now, here they are again. You can here them across the road yipping like crazy at night. And worst of all, the kitty that I have been feeding for 2 years now is missing. Taylor named him Autumn, after a book she was reading, "For the Love of Autumn", a very cute book about a kitty. Anywhooooo he is NOT an indoor kitty, he loves the "wild". He would show up every morning for breakfast and every night for dinner. And that is about as close to him as we could get. But for the last week, nothing. I think he turned up a coyote dinner. Last night Taylor even left our back deck light on for him all night hoping he'd show. :( I am still hoping.

Rose, Our po closes for 1 1/2 hours for lunch. Who takes 1 1/2 hours for lunch? And I wonder if they are being paid for it?

Okay, now to some seriousness....BINGO! :D

This was a great swap, many thanks to Vina for hosting!
It's another really pretty day here today, I've already been out wandering around the flower beds, checking everything out. My Prairie Smoke made it thro the winter! Hasn't grown much, but they are at least still alive!
This is the fun time of year for me, seeing what all is coming back, and trying to remember what everything is!

Great job Margo! Thanks Vina for hosting & playing a great game. I was waiting on heart & holding hands. Keeping on the lookout for the words helped remind me to be loving others all month. I think I did more of the little things & took time to stop, squeeze a hand or hug & compliment more this month. A little love, laughter & appreciation sure makes life more fun for all of us and it is free!

Robin - did you have a DC number for the pkg sent? I'm not home, but our son said it didn't come yet as of Monday. I'll be back home on Wed.

RE: new: mnf: feb: h-e-a-r-t swap

Congrats Margo for Bingo. I have been so busy and going to doctors that I haven't paid much attention to the game. Today I had an echo test and Thursday a heart cath test. Oh well for the golden age they say. Was looking forward to more winter sowing but I am not going to scrap snow just to get the jugs level on the ground so they don't tip. Hoping it will go away but there is another big storm coming on tomorrow night. Would be nice if the weatherman was wrong. Have a great day everyone!

Happy Tuesday!

WE HAVE A WINNER!!! :D MARGO!!! I double checked and you are the Big VALENTINE Bingo W~I~N~N~E~R :D

Can you please send me your addy and I will be getting out your Supa Dupa Prize this weekend.

Shirley, I was out the other day doing the same thing. Putting back my flower tags took longer than I thought with the ground still a little frozen. So I put them under rocks for safe keeping. I planted a tiny, I mean teeny tiny, little yellow foxglove baby that I got from a friend of mine. I was so astonished to see that it has at least tripled in size. It is planted in the back of the house, by the foundation, where there is very little snow and no wind. Is it possible that it could have grown over the winter? I was just shocked to see it.

Ruby, that sounds like a terrific HEART. Chocolate and Butterflies! What more could you ask for???

Corrine, your right! I love to laugh... and best of all IT'S FREE :D

Ellie, I hope your feeling better. There hasn't been that much of a winter to do "sowing". I do jiffies under lights, but have been wondering with such a mild winter are the ws'ing jugs outside bursting with bloom or are they not growing at all because they don't have the snow for insulation?

I also would like to remind everyone about the rate and review forum. We don't do it nearly enough on the round robin, and for some of the newbies, it really helps to establish them. Thanks!

Vina, thank you and I will send my address as soon as I finish my post.

First I want to say I hope we don't have any members who were in the line of that tornado in Branson, Missouri, last night or in the line of the damaging storms that are going through the country.

I made it to my son and dil's last night and all is well. Thank goodness for alarm system as I am always freaked out at unfamiliar places by myself. Not that three dogs aren't a good alarm system. I have not seen the coyote either but trust me, I don't stay out there that long.

We had storms here last night and they have one dog who freaks with storms but she did ok. More headed here today along with high winds. I hope there are no problems. At least it is bringing warmer temps. Still can't believe the mild winter we are having.

Stay safe everyone and thanks again to Vina for another great swap. Thanks for the reminder on the rate and review reminder. I totally forgot to rate the swaps this month and they were all fantastic.

My HEART arrived yesterday. It's been a challenging week with more to come, so it was a pleasant interruption. Rose appealed to my sweet tooth with dark chocolate covered Fortune Cookies, a heart shaped box of chocolates and a huge chocolate bar. Two duck bubble necklaces added a whimsical touch. There was some special soil for the very choice seeds she included, among them pink and yellow ladyslippers and chili peppers from Sweden. I am thrilled with them!

I know I have not done this fine box justice, but it was a very special one. Thanks!

Yes, Robin, I did get it when I arrived back home on Feb. 29. It was kept inside the camp office because it was such a large box it didn't fit inside our mailbox, so our son didn't know it had come! Robin, you went over & above on this box to me then the postage was over the top. WOW!

I don't know who was more excited me or my hubby when we opened it up...

Robin, how did you know we have a shady backyard? Last year, hubby became so excited about the bleeding hearts that he ordered Gold Heart at the hardware store near his parents while we were on vacation there and brought it home to plant in the backyard. The blooms lasted a long time & the plant did not go dormant until frost in fall. It was amazing! We have the corner on wet shade in our backyard & it's visible from the house, so the bleeding hearts are a hit!

The hummingbirds come to our back window & those little feeders will be perfect there. Maybe I will catch them on camera this year. I try every year, but miss.

Ageratum are deer resistant & put on such a lovely show that I'm excited to grow them myself along with the delphinium that fill out the garden so nicely with their fancy blooms.

Thanks Vina for hostessing & Robin for your super duper package,
Corrine
