Sheri- Voted for you...nice job.

Sharon - I mailed my package today.

Waving to Stoney Matthew and hope his day went well.

Please pray for my Sister, she is very ill and in the hospital. 3 weeks ago she went to the Dr. and he gave her some antibiotics to take. The antibiotics caused an infection called C-diff. She was taken last night by ambulance to a hospital which deals with this infection.
Hopefully she will overcome this infection and be home soon. I have been so worried and concerned.

Jayeanne, you are the winner of the
GOING MAD IN MARCH - GW STYLE

You hit it right on, thighs. I was prepared to accept legs as the answer. I miss the days of men wearing short shorts. I used to even watch some basketball because their shorts were real shorts ... not knee knockers. LOL

Since our ground is still frozen and most still snow covered, supposed to get 8 inches today, I'm going to have to delay sending you your prize. Your prize will be any plant I have listed on my exchange list. Give me till the end of the day to update it. Most of it is right though.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who voted for me. I usually don't enter stuff like that, but I am really excited for my spring garden. Thank you for all the OBF support! :)

Wanted to show you ladies a photo of my winter sowing Ill been working on .... the other night had a big scare... around 1 am heard this extremely loud crash as if the upstairs window had fallen out, got up to check and it was huge chunks of ice falling off the roof onto the back deck where I have all the winter sow jugs... as you can see some of them got crushed Still too frozen to really try and straighten them out any, just glad to know it was just ice falling and nothing worse. I see we have 8 days till SPRING! =)

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

I got the bestest box from Melinda on Saturday and so sorry I haven't posted until today.
I got called in to work in the office this week (I normally work at home) and it's 30 miles each way. but still - no excuse!!

A wonderful Irish Blessing card with chocolate m.g. seeds (one of my most wanted) and I'm part Irish!
A really nice Shamrock Pin
The most adorable raccoon pot sitter.
Purple Gladiola bulbs!!!
"Show Winner" daylily - you must know I like daylilies and I don't have this one!!
Garden gloves - can never have enough!
a great St. Patty's day necklace...my husband wants to wear it to his favorite Irish Bar LOL!
a very nice stationary set
and finally a very beautiful plaque with purple flowers that says "Friends are the Flowers of the Garden of Life" - just gorgeous~

I love everything so much thanks Melinda~

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Thanks for all the prayers for my Sister, she gets to come home tomorrow. The Doctor told her she will be on some very expensive medicine for awhile, $200 or there about for one pill.

Sheri-My Sister and both my Brothers live within yelling distance of me. We all grew up here in Franklin and live among many Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.

Jayeanne-Way to go with the winter sowing....hope you get lots of green.

Christine-What kind of eye surgery did your Son have? Blessings to him and you.

Shirley


 o
RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Christine, hoping all is "perfect" with your sons eyes.....prayers for your little one. Enjoy your time with your SIS.

Shirley, wonderful that your sister is home tomorrow. Drug prices are ridiculous...but if one must have them and they help, it is worth it. I do hope her insurance covers the drug......be well Shirleys sister!!
That is really nice that everyone lives so close to each other..."within yelling distance" is close!!!. I guess if you did not get along, that could be a problem!!!!

Melinda, a fantastic box for Sue!!!

Jayeanne, oh my, I have never experienced/ witessed/ heard/ seen chunks of ice falling off the roof for real...only in the movies and TV!!!! How many jugs did you WS???? It is exciting...the waiting and the anticipating of all the goodness that will grow. I just love wintersowing.

Tiz vino time for me....and off to plant a few more things outside.

Happy Evening!!

Annie


 o
RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Christine sorry to hear about your sons eyes, I do hope and pray he will have a well and speedy recovery =)

Thank you Shirley Annie and Sharon, that duct tape my girls picked out for me, LOL Annie, LOL yes that noise scared the crap outta me! LOL Funny now but wasnt when it happened...I was just thinking before I got out of bed to check it out "just what we need, what is it this time" LOL Not sure if you can tell in the photo but some of the jugs are even cracked open from it and smooshed pretty good. Ill try and get a better photo of the jugs I winter sowed here in a couple days when I can straighten them out a little better.

Melinda! Sounds like you got a wonderful box from Sue! Love all the Irish!

Sharon I am still drooling over your fabulous list, LOL I am gonna have to get back to you on that. I think I am narrowing it down to a hosta (I think, LOL) Thank you so much Sharon!

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Good morning all! I hope everyone is staying warm and having a great day. We are fixing to head to he oncologist this morning in Springfield, Mo to hopefully get some answers. He is still not in school and I am so worrying about this, but doesn't have the energy and spleen still enlarged and don't want him there as afraid it might get hit and rupture. So praying for good answers.
Sue, I am glad you liked the box I sent!
Shirley, glad your sister is going home. Will continue the prayers!
Jayeanne, love the pics of your wintersowing. I've done some but not as much as I usually do. But still have time to do a few annuals. Just too busy being babysitter and not doing well for about 5 weeks myself. Couldn't do any with blood clots in my arm when it was time to do it. Just put them in refrigerator and maybe will bring them out later and plant.
Big hugs to all today, Melinda

A BIG Hug and MANY THANKS to Annie! wow!! The luck of the Irish has arrived! LOL Annie sent a very creative 'Pot of GOLD Certificate' (even had some Irish green!) LOL! some very cozy purple/pink socks, note tablet with pink markers, some seeds that I have been wanting including...trailing white lobelia, honeywort kiwi blue, poppy laurens grape, petunia sparklers, and heliotrope marine. (going to get these sowed this evening) and some reblooming Iris! Do you by chance know the color of the Iris? Iris is one of my all time favorites...brings back many good memories of my grandmother =) I LOVED everything Annie, thank you ever so much!

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Hello, Lovely Ladies-As you know I haven't been joining too many of the swaps for some time. I now believe it is time for me to withdraw due to health reasons. I have so enjoyed participating & love all involved here but can't do what I believe is an active member. That means I need one of you dear ones to take May for me as Hostess. I do apologize for this & hope at a later date I will be able to become more active than I can now. Thank each of you dear ones & I have so many of my plants that I have received from the group & can't wait to see what comes up this Spring. Please know I care for each of you. Blessings, Margaret


 o
RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Margaret-Thanks for letting us know about May's swap. Praying your health will return, blessings to you sweet lady. Please let us know how you are doing and join in any time.

Christine-Hugs and prayers to your little boy with his eyes. Hope he is still doing well.

Michelle-Glad you liked the box. Hope you have lots of blooms.

Melinda-How is Stoney? I received his sweet card today. He is still on my prayer list as well.

Great boxes ladies....Think Spring.

My sweet Sister came home yesterday. I will cook some meals for her and her DH but will have to find out what she can and can't eat.

Shirley


 o
RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Shirley, I will take the month of May for Margaret.

Sweet Margaret, you are in my prayers....be well......

Sheri and Michelle, wonderful "march days" packages you received.

Prayers for all of our special people,,,,,Stoney and Melinda, Christine's young boy and Christine, Margo, Shirley and her sister, Margaret....who am I forgetting? Well, I will say an Annie prayer for all of the OBF'ERS and those they care for and love.. A wise warrior told me many years ago, "We can use all the help we can get....a prayer certainly will never hurt"............................So true!

Have a wonderful weekend! Keep the faith.............

Annie

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Good morning all! Stoney Matthew actually played a little yesterday!
His dr. in Springfield could find nothing on the immune system tests they did, but drew 6 more tubes of blood and going to test some other things. Little Rock is still going over the bone marrow smears they rec'd. So a lot is still pending, but they want him to go back to the blood disorder dr. In Little Rock, it is never ending and never any answers, but things aren't right, some of his blood work is good, some bad, don't know why that is like that, etc. Craziest I have ever seen! But nice to see him feel almost normal for a day! Hoping that continues and this was just a fluke, but everyone says there is something wrong but it is pretty rare, who knows?

I too am sending prayers for all of you who need them. I do that daily anyway and always have!
Hoping everyone has a beautiful weekend.
So sorry Margaret that your health is declining, but we are all going to get there. I had to change a swap due to blood clots in my arm last month. But that resolves until I get more, not first time, but hopefully the last. These ones were the worse though.
But do stop in and say hello and let us know how you are doing. I still have The outside hand shovels you sent me in a swap and best ones I ever rec'd! I use them always!
Was quite few years back!
Everyone has rec'd some very nice boxes!
Hoping everyone has a wonderful weekend! Love your family and friends and enjoy your life! Big Hugs, Melinda

Thank you Annie for taking May....my favorite month. I love the month of May. As you may know my Birthday is December 24th and I have never liked my December Birthday. My Sister's Birthday is in May and she always had a Birthday party. I was so jealous and wanted a party like hers. We were always out of school for weeks during this time and who would come to a party on Christmas eve. My Children always try to make it extra special now because they know I wanted a different Birthday.

Melinda-So good to hear the news about Stoney Matthew. When they are ready to play they usually feel better.

Christine-Hope you Son is doing well with his eyes.

Margaret-Don't know if you are checking in with the group but big hugs to you.

And Lord bless us all....whether we need it today or in the future.

What a gorgeous day we had. We moved 15 peonies, planted some seeds, cleaned up some flower beds and dug some daffodils for some friends who came to visit.

Shirley

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

I loved it, Christine. Thank you! I worked in the garden, too, Shirley! Transplanted my Ms. Mars Sunflower seedlings along the fence (inside to protect them from deer).

Christine's glad bulbs went on the outside of the fence, because the package said they are deer resistant. They leave the canna's alone, so I think they'll be safe. They usually take a taste test, then walk on.

I'm excited to host April! You're gonna love it. :)

Prayers for all who are having difficulties of one kind or another.

I did receive a very nice box from Sharon a couple of days ago. Just been very busy here. She went all out for St. Pat's and Spring. She decorated some green straws with shamrocks, made some little shamrock flowers that she put into a pot of gold. It is really cute. Also sent along some USPS flowers stamps, dental stick for my dog, and catnip for the kitties. They went NUTS, of course. lol Finally, she sent a bag of lily bulbs which will be beautiful. I do love lilies! Thank you so very much for the fun gifts.

Vina, I will be getting your package out either tomorrow or Tuesday.

ME


 o
RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Prayers to all who need them. Margaret, I hope you still come to visit here on the thread even if you don't feel you can swap. We will certainly miss you!

I received my wonderful package from Beth while I was away. She sent a cute card telling me that St. Patrick's Day is her father's birthday and it's when they always planted peas and potatoes. To go along with that, she included pea seeds. I love planting peas! They get harvested before our hot summer weather arrives. Beth also sent Purple Shamrock plants. I can grow those indoors or out, Beth, and I love them! Also, a shamrock shaped cookie cutter. I love all of it, and thank you so much.

I loved getting to meet my new granddaughter. She is so sweet and such a good baby. Her parents are lucky to have her and she is lucky to have such good parents!

I also received a note from Stoney. I hope you have answers about what is wrong soon and that he continues to have good days. It has to be hard to have no answers at this point.

Happy St. Patrick's Day tomorrow to all!

Jeanne

Morning! Just got back from the post office mailing Sharon's bubblie :)

DC# is: 9114 9012 3080 1090 5189 18 Expected delivery is Thursday.

A couple of weeks ago was the 100th day of school. Each child needed to do a 100 project. 100 of anything. Billy and I made a coral reef. 10 sets of 10 ocean animals . He was so proud! Just brought it home to hang in his room. :)

It only cost us $2.50 to make!

Have a great day!!

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Veeja, missed you. Here we are clearing brush and pruning for fire breaks. Send some rain. LOL but keep your slugs.
Jeannie, your package arrived yesterday and we both enjoyed opening all the prettily wrapped packages. Candy bag was on top so we nibbled as we worked our way through the box. yum yum.
Yes, I recognized the bunny tails on the packages. Cute and fun Packets were wrapped in springish looking white paper with purple leaves to celebrate both Spring and purple day.
The highlight for me was a little spring chick the sits an your hand and cheeps very convincingly. I miss my chicks and Jack and I both enjoyed playing with this little guy. Package also included a packet of journaling notes, seeds for carrots and , in Purple.... a finger nail brush( perfect after a working in the garden morning) and a tape dispenser shaped like either a snail or a dinasaur.. Either way, I'm keeping that away from my garden. A package of Giant Violet Zinnias will be perfect for my cutting garden.
Very nice choices Jeannie. Many thanks. Take time now to enjoy that precious little girl, hugs

addition

Oh NO, I forgot the garlic. No, not in the spaghetti sauce, in my list of goodies. sorry Jeannie. I got a nice bag of garlic bulbs for my garden.Ii put them into the utility room with my seed stash and then forgot to list them.
I need to go sniff the rosemary for my memory!
Anyway, thanks again.

Michelle-I received my awesome box from you. Thank you so very much for all the beautiful plants.

Purple Oxalis
Sedum Adolphi 'Fireglow'
Sedum Refletum 'Angelina'
Hens & chicks 'Bronco'
Hens & chicks 'Spherette
Dahlia

I am so into Sedums and Hens & Chicks. Have quite a few and still collecting. I think my Dahlias froze out over the too cold Winter we had so need to replace them. Thanks again Michelle.

Jeanne-Treasure every moment with your sweet GD. They grow up so fast.

Vina-Great job on the 100 project you and Billy did. It always amazes me the great ideas individuals come up with in different projects.

Beth-I need to get me some rosemary. Did your pussy willow cuttings root?

Night ladies.

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Sorry ladies I've been missing in action for a couple of days. It's been busy here.
Now I have to read up on what's been happening.

I hope everyone had a nice St Patrick's Day. I forgot to wear green to work. It's kind of a big thing and I took a lot of ribbing for it.

Vina, I love the Coral Reef your son made for the 100th day of school. How creative and COOL .... cool enough to hang on his bedroom wall! LOL

Jeanne, another super cute picture of your granddaughter.

We still have too much snow and frozen ground here to do anything outside. Hopefully soon!

I just received my package from Vina and will write you about it as I open it.
First I want to say how lovely the package is decorated! That is a treat in itself. I bet the postwoman loves you Vina!

Oh, Oh, purple foil grass is poking out of the envelope ..... I've got to dig around in it to find my treasures ...
Found one .... Iris siberica blue! LOVE These
Magnetic note pads for the refrigerator! How cute!
Comfy 'Crush Cozy Socks' purple of course and its still cold here.
A VERY colorful kitchen towel with Butterflies on it ... this one is going up to the cottage, it will look perfect there.
Digging ... digging ... there is something metal in here ....
Wait for it .... wait for it ....
ITS A ....
METAL BLUE BIRD. LOL

All so very appropriate to celebrate Purple Day and the Vernal Equinox! AND I LOVE THEM ALL. They brought a smile to my face. :o)
Did you plan this out so I received the box on the 1st Day of Spring? How Wonderful!!

BIG CONFESSION HERE.

I incorrectly spelled the name of my Scrambled words.
My face is bright red.
Sorry if I had some of you pulling your hair out!
What can I say, I call this object the name I spelled, even though it is called something else.

IT SOULD BE A EASY QUICK GAME NOW.

A quick game - HINTS
Unscramble:
This object has become a favorite of mine to use for small easy artistic projects.

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

I am so sorry about not getting my box out by now. Had a small accident (fall) last week and had to go into the office all this week instead of working at home (30 miles each way ouch!) - anyway no excuses...I will get it out very soon!

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

I am guessing Shawi Tape.
Sue, I hope you didn't get hurt bad in your fall! Don't worry about the package, I know it'll get here when you get time.
Just take care of yourself! Melinda


 o
RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Melinda, you got the word tape right.
But shawi is scrambled.


 o
RE: update: obf march days swap continued

I don't know why I typed it like you had it. I meant washi tape. I hope that's it!


 o
RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Melinda-I think you have it....congratulations.

Sue G. - Sorry to hear about your fall....hope you are soon 100%.

Such nice boxes received, this group is the greatest.

Planted lilies until I will probably dream about them tonight.
Have a few more to plant when we get some more dirt.
Melinda and Sharon have yours to ship out Monday for the winning games we did in Feb. Such nice bulbs, Bert from Touch of Nature always has great bulbs. I actually met him yesterday when I was in Atlanta to pick up my bulbs. Looks nothing like his picture (LOL). If any of you are familiar with the site All Things Plants and the co-ops that happen there you know Bert (DUTCHMAN) is wearing a mask in his picture. He shared with me yesterday his Daughter sneaked and took a picture of him while he was napping on the couch and threatened to post the real him. He said it took some money to talk her out of doing this.
I love meeting people who you trade and buy from on the gardening sites.

Shirley

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Shirley, I so wanted in on the lily co-op, but I must be quite dumb as can't seem to figure out how it works. I signed up and get the newsletter, which I enjoy! But haven't figured out how to do the co-ops. Are there any going right now? Maybe I can figure it out if spend more time there. Just wasn't sure what I was doing! I am sure it is easier than it seems.


 o
RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Melinda, you are the big winner! I call the tape Wasabi tape .... probably because Washi reminds me of Wasabi, and I love saying Wasabi and I love Wasabi nuts! So when I typed out the scrambled word I put in Wasabi. LOL I hope I'm forgiven.
We are staying below freezing here till Thursday, so I should get your prize mailed out then.

Melinda, give those co-ops a try. I've done them before and have been happy.

Shirley, you are one lucky girl! I wish I had the room to keep planting and planting. Especially the dayilies and the bulbs .... my favorites. We are planning on moving in about 5 years and hubby doesn't want me digging up anymore land. He is happy I'm finally into gardening again and says maybe we can get an acre or 2 when we move ... as long as he gets his John Deer. LOL We will see ...

I have bought from Bert before and have never been disappointed. How wonderful you got to meet him.

I need to trim my Rose Bushes soon. Anyone else this far behind?

Sharon


 o
RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Thanks Sharon! Yes, I am behind. I need to trim roses and many things.
I wanted in on the lily co-op but wasn't sure exactly what I was doing so didn't. I should have asked someone. I posted a question once, and someone messaged me back and I had put it in the wrong place, felt like an idiot so didn't ask anymore! LOL!~ I wanted some of the tiny series of lilies. I have tiny ghost and tiny sensation and love them,so hopefully someday I'll get some more!
Hope everyone has a great Sunday. I need to get around and get ready for church!
Melinda
P.S. Shirley do they do a daylily coop? I do want in on that if they do one;


 o
RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Melinda I am so sorry you missed the lily co-op...shoot I should have helped you through the web site. You know the Daves Garden groups have just about quit co-ops. So I love the reliable co-ops when you find them. Yes they do have daylily co-ops. I think someone posted that Gilbert H. Wild has a huge daylily sale going on. I am so into the newer daylilies I don't buy the older ones any more. I just received an order from them, I bought peonies, grasses, coneflowers and etc. They have wonderful peonies if you like those. I really like the tiny series of lilies as well. One of my favorites is Tiny Padhye and it was on the co-op list this year. They also had Tiny Dancers, Tiny Double You, Tiny Sin and Tiny Sensations. Bert does want everyone to list the ones he will need to order for this Fall.

Sharon-I do love that I can expand my gardens when ever I get a whim. I just point to a new site and tell DH to dig it up. He knows better than to argue because I will hire someone to do it. LOL I am proud of him, he has been working so hard this year and the flower beds show it. Almost weed free and mulched. I hope to have the Garden Club Group and the Master Gardeners here this year. It makes a big difference if you are retired and can work at it each day. When DH wanted to retire last year I told him you will have to keep the flower beds attended if I have to work. So the deal was done.

Vina, your box WILL got out tomorrow!

Shirley, I always order from Bert, too. Love his bulbs, etc. I have never been disappointed. Do you think Vina might deduce from this that she may be getting a bulb or two? lol

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Melinda and Stoney - I rec'd a sweet note from Stoney Matthew today, just so happy to make him happy! My son was anxiously awaiting to see how he liked what he picked out for him. Hope he is doing better. =)

Shirley - Not sure of the co op with the lilys but next go around that is something I would be interested as well.

Thank you Sharon for hosting...what a fun swap!

Thank you for a great swap, Sharon! I'll be posting the OBF April swap on the morning of March 31. :)

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Haven't been on much, but wanted to thank Shirley for the wonderful chill out lily bulb! I love it and don't have that one!
To all who are thinking about Stoney Matthew, thank you so much! He is some better but still definitely not back to normal and we still have no diagnosis.
Now his oldest brother has been in the hospital since Tuesday and will be a while before he comes home. I've been there everyday, I left early today to take care of few things I had to do . They took him back to surgery today, they had nicked his colon in the first one and he is one sick boy! His temp was 102.4 when I left. He has a way to go before he is going to be better. I'm tired and worried,but know that all will be well in the end.
Thanks again for the prize Shirley!
Hope everyone has a great evening! I'm going to try to sleep a little as probably will have to go back up before long.

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Shirley, Thank you so much for the lovely Tiny Padhye Lily. I am so looking forward to seeing it bloom this summer!
Sharon

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Sorry to hear about your brother, Melinda. The same thing happened to my stepmother many years ago.

I'm a bad bad Sue not sending your box yet but I hope you like it when you get it - after all it's still Spring right? LOL

Anyway I'm feeling better so it will be on it's way soon.

Sue G

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Melinda, oh, those poor parents! 2 children sick at the same time. I hoping for the best for both of your grandchildren! I looked up the lily you received from Shirley,'chill out', how pretty!

Sue, glad you are feeling better! It's still March, so your box isn't late yet!

Shirley, I'm so excited about the Tiny Padhye Lily, I couldn't wait to plant it in the frozen ground, so I have planted it in a Styrofoam coffee cup in the basement with my seedlings. I even pulled off a lobe (?) of the bulb to try and get a second one started. LOL

I'm seeing my sister this weekend ... we were hoping for a 50 degree day, but weather says we will lucky to hit 40. :o(
Still winter if you ask me!

sharon

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Melinda, sending prayers for both boys. Hope by now things are looking better for both.
Sending hugs too

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Melinda-So sorry to hear the news about your Grandson. Please keep us informed and I will be praying he will be home soon. Hope to hear Stoney Matthew is 100% better real soon. I hope Chill Out blooms beautiful for you.

Sharon-I have read on some of the gardening sites that you can take a piece of the lily scale and start a new one. LMK if it works for you. Hope you and your Sister have a wonderful time together.

My Beautiful Daughter called last night and asked me to go with her to some yard sales this morning. I went and we found a treasure here and there. It was so good to spend the day together. We ended up in another town and checked out stores we do not have in our town. It is so nice to have a best friend who is also your Daughter.

Shirley

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Sorry Melinda, for some reason I thought there was only one box still missing out there and when Vina said she had received her box .... well, I thought that was it. But all I had to do was look back at my last listing of sent/rec and I would have seen you were still waiting. I'm glad Sue has gotten back with you.
Thanks Sue for letting us know the box is almost there.
Yes, sometimes life is what happens when we are planning on mailing out a box. LOL
Sharon

RE: update: obf march days swap continued

Melinda,

I've sent you a screen shot of what the USPS website says. I've never had a box lost yet but I'll call them when they open and see if they can tell me anything.

I shipped another box the same day and it arrived just fine.

I'm so disappointed. But if it's truly lost I can make you another one no problem.

Sue G
