UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Let's continue Shirley's party over here..........

I carried all of THE Preakness stuff over from the other thread......five horses have been chosen thus far.

GAME TIME....girls were off to watch the ponies again!

THE PREAKNESS 2014

RULES:

At presant, there are 10 horses running. Rules are pretty much the same as The Kentucky Derby. This time SHIRLEY does not get to pick two horses...sorry!

*To Shirley and each of her party guests (if you want to play), pick one horse and put your name next to it. DO NOT PICK a horse that someone has already chosen.

*If you choose a horse and it is scratched, meaning for whatever reason it does not run in the race...to bad....LOL!

*If you decide to play, please post your pick by 3PM Eastern/12 Noon Pacific on Saturday, May 17. If there are any horses left, I will put horse name(s) in a dog bowl...and in another dog bowl put all of the party guests that are playing.......and possibly you will get another horse.

******If per chance, you come late to the game and all the horses are spoken for, I will have another game....YOU WILL PICK WHO COMES IN LAST PLACE. I don't like excluding people from playing games and since there are only 10 horses and 17 possible OBF players....well, you can do the math....LOL!

I will then post it for all to see.

Prizes...
WIN....1st
PLACE...2nd
SHOW...3rd

And a prize for LAST PLACE if we go down that road!

And if you will, as you each pick your horse, copy and paste the entire group of horses with names next to it, so everyone will know who has already been picked. Hope that makes sense!

POST time..6:20PM Eastern on NBC
I have removed ODDS, Jockey info. So take a guess on who will win THE PREAKNESS .

Melinda you got my horse...LOL hope he wins for you too.

I received so many Birthday gifts today.
Carol sent me 3 wonderful packs of coneflower seeds:
Meringue
Tangerine Dream
Razzmatazz
Thank you Carol, can't wait to see these in bloom.

Beth sent me a Birthday card, drawing pad and a box of crayons:
Inside she wrote "Even adults smile at a new box of crayons. Beth this is true, when my children were small I always sat with them and colored with them. Loved picking out all the cute coloring books. My daughter-in-law always asks for crayons and coloring books for Christmas. I love finding just the perfect one for her. You definitely made me smile....thank you.

Ruth-You sent me the brugs I was looking for. I am so excited to get these and can't wait until they root and are growing in my yard. Ruth and I were working on a trade for these brugs. Also, thanks for the beautiful Birthday card.

Species
Rosatraum
Isabella
Whiskers
Chrub

Thank you so much for these:

And Jeanne...I have almost finished my Master Gardener Course so the Mammoth Grey-Striped Sunflowers are so appropriate that you sent from the 2014 State Master Gardener Jamboree. Also, thanks for the beautiful hand-made Birthday card and the cup of Friendship teas. I would love to make some of these to give this Christmas to the ladies in the Garden Club and Master Gardener Group. Where did you find the quilted pouch to place the teas in?

This is so cute and says:
A Cup of Friendship
I wish we could sit down together
and drink a cup of tea, but since
we can't, when you have this tea
I hope you'll think of me!

And it has two teas attached...Cinnamon Stick Tea and French Vanilla Tea.

Thank you ladies for the best May Birthday ever.

Hi, everyone. I feel like I'm late to the party. My husband and I went up to NC to visit our little granddaughter and her mom and dad. She has grown so much! Less than 2 months since we saw her, but 2 months in the life of a baby is a lot!

Anyway, I see the games have been moving along. So glad I saw this in time to pick a horse for the Preakness. I will pick Pablo del Monte for last place. (Sorry,Pablo del Monte, and I didn't look up anything about you so don't take it personally.)

So glad you liked what I sent Sue and Shirley. Shirley, the tea packet was made by a friend. I could probably explain how to make it. Let me know if you want me to try that and I'll send an e-mail message. I thought it was very cute as well... and Sue, the card that I sent has me laughing every time I think of it - oh, the world of the 50's! Can you imagine doing housework all dressed up like that? (Can you imagine doing housework? - LOL)

Everyone have a wonderful weekend.
Jeanne

(I edited because someone beat me to Kid Cruz...should be interesting to cheer for a horse to come in last... different, at least!)

Good Morning Ladies.
It's a beautiful 69 degrees right now and the birds and squirrels seem extra hungry today. It's like a feeding frenzy around the feeders.

Shirley, glad your enjoying your birthday and gifts.
Hope the brug cuttings root okay for you.
Normally I only take cuttings later in the year, usually late fall when I can get bigger cuttings. I didn't send Naughty Nick as it is too small right now for cuttings.
Did you find the lip balm in the box? It's so small it may have been overlooked.

Annie, I wish I had that much compost. I buy a few bags at a time. If you buy it by the truckload, is it as good or better as the bagged?

For everyone asking about Mason, he is better. He's missed 6 days of school now, but his highest fever the last few days was 102.3. Yesterday he asked me to bring him a hugh lunch. I doubt if he ate much of it, but at least his appetite is back.

Have a great Saturday.

The PREAKNESS...LAST PLACE
Let's see, which partiers have not chosen yet...Beth, Sue G, Susan, Carol and MaryEllen. Ladies, pick a LOSER by 3PM Easter/12 noon Pacific. And yes, whatever horses are left at 12:01PM Pacific, will go in to the dog bowl/playing partiers will go in to a dog bowl...hence, a LOSING chance to Win the PREAKNESS BOOBIETTA prize.

************************
Ruth, a few years ago, I found a guy at the equestrian stables...............his compost is outstanding.......no weed seeds, no junk........pure beauty. It is all organic, wood shavings from lumber mills and horse manure from hay. My soil has improved so much in the last few years. I am never without it. Less expensive than store bought stuff too...about $15.50 inc tax for one cubic yard. Hands down the best stuff I have ever used, commercial or otherwise. I still make my own but never have enough if it.

Mason, be well!!!!!

My partner envies to Shirley and Sheri have departed!

Well, I watched the race, but they didn't announce who came in last so I'm still in suspense. I was a bit upset when the race started out with Pablo Del Monte running first since he was my pick for last.

I'm very happy about California Chrome! It would be so great to have a Triple Crown winner. As my younger daughter says, there has never been one in her lifetime.

I hope everyone had a good day. I need to wrap a few birthday presents and make a cake so I'll check in later. Our weather here today was perfect. Too bad I was tired from our trip to NC and didn't get out to enjoy it as much as I would have liked. However I can still enjoy nice weather!

California Chrome really took the lead in both races. I'm rooting for him in The Belmont, now. I'd never watched a horse race in my life, until Annie posted these games! Fun!!

Adorable horse cookies.

Annie, sent you an email that I received my prizes in the mail. Thank you very much. I love them.

Just got back from a 71/2 hour drive. Took my son to Indiana again for his second coop job for college. He and three others are renting an older house with so much character. Really neat. 15 hours in two days is a bit much I might add. Ugh. I will miss him though. It's hard when he is so far away. When he is at college, it's only three hours.

Got home too late to garden but the next two days are going to be a gardening marathon and I can't wait. Hope everyone had a good weekend. Margo

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Happy Monday OBFERS,

*Laura, just emailed you via GW....email me your name and address so that I can send your "Last Place" prize.

*Jayeanne, I don't know what to tell you about not getting these posts. When I have had a few problems here on GW, I email them..."contact us". And they have responded!
***************************
CONTEST TIME

Oh my the month is moving quickly. Guess what this Saturday is???? It is Miss Shirley's Birthday!!!!! I thought a game/contest was in order to help celebrate this very special woman.

Here we go.....we will call it......

"PICTURE PERFECT FOR MISS SHIRLEY"

*Create a flower arrangement in a vase, bowl, basket ect or a container of flowers/plants, a little vignette of floral surprise etc, you can assist your creativity with garden art if you like, small or large ....whatever turns you on, whatever you think will make Shirley happy! Name/Title your "picture perfect", snap a picture and post it here. Only one picture can be submitted for your entry..

*I questioned whether to do this as I know many of you do not have flowers etc...... You do not live in Southern California!!! You can use artificial if need be, you can use houseplants....heck you can go in to your local nursery, put some plants/flowers together, snap a pic without having to buy anything.

*Shirley, you can not enter this one as you will decide the winner of "PICTURE PERFECT" ..................

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Came home today and found all kinds of packages for Birthday wishes.

From Susan (skyblue52)
Indian spinach seeds (can't wait to sow these)
2 pks mixed salad leaves seeds (these are a mix of leaf radish, leaf carrot, wrinkled cress, red kale, red amaranth, purslane & burnet) bet I could impress with this salad on the dinner table.
Touchscreen cleaning wipes
Birthday card

Thank you so much Susan for such a thoughtful gift.

From Laura:
Gardening gloves (always need these)
Daylily Siloam Peony Display (Can't wait to see this one bloom)
Birthday card

Thank you so much Laura a thoughtful gift from you as well.

From Nikki:
Birthday card
Hollyhock seed mix (love hollyhocks and always look forward to their blooms)
Two memo tablets and a pen

Thank you Nikki for all these neat gifts

From Promise:
Hand made Birthday card (good job)
Rain lilies (I use to grow rain lilies but something happened to them so very glad to get these)
Wildflower Hummingbird Mix (DH and I know where we are going to plant these, will take pictures when they are in all their glory)
Seed Bags (never can get to many of these)
Two pairs of gardening gloves (more wonderful gloves)
Seeds: Black Cherry Prunusserotina, Spaghetti Squash, A Chair Verte Rare Melon,Little Gem Watermelon

Thank You Promise for an awesome Birthday package.

I really can't find words for this May's Birthday extravaganza...too fun precious ladies.

Ruth-I did find the lip balm in my package but forgot to mention it in the post. I have not been able to go to the Avon ladies booth at the market lately to get my moisture therapy lip balm so I needed this badly. Thank You.
Hope Mason's appetite is still on and he is still improving.

Margo-How fun to help pick out the wedding dress, that truly says how close you and your daughter are.

Annie-The Master Gardeners course is 13 weeks, this Friday will be my last one. The past Members cook for us and introduce themselves and etc. I know most of them so I'm excited to become a full fledged member. Yeah I get to be a judge, I used to be a judge in beauty pagents and really liked it. The pagents were something Sheila and I did together.

Jeanne-If you have pictures of that precious Granddaughter please share. Yes please e-mail me with the directions on the tea. I went to Sew Creative Saturday but they had nothing that looked like what you sent. The lady that worked there totally confused me on how I could make them.

Nikki-Those horse cookies are so cute and I love Milano cookies so I bet those are really good with all that choc.

Is anyone watching Dancing With The Stars this year? I'm blown away with Dereck's partner Amy and she just made it into the finals. GO AMY...........

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Received my card from Susan, (skyblue52) today. It contained calendula seeds and two packages of poppies. Thank you Susan. I was busy in the garden all day getting them ready for seeding so these will most probably be planted tomorrow unless it rains.

Shirley, so glad you are having such a fun time with your birthday. Nice things are arriving at your door too.

Margo


 o
RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

I'm happy both packages made it safely. You ladies are very welcome and I'm so glad I was able to cross off things from both your wishlists!

Melinda, the orange mint is my bushiest, most prolific plant by far so definitely one for a planter in a sunny spot instead of the ground. I started rooting those snippits last weekend and they've already filled back in!

Shirley, I didn't see this one on your 'had' list and immediately thought of it for you. It's a real showstopper in the doubles department. Also, hats off to the USPS for delivering two days ahead of schedule. I bet the mailman really does think its your birthday with all those wonderful goodies!


 o
RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Shirley, how fun to get all those presents in one day!

Nikki, cute horse cookies. I have to say though, at first I couldn't figure out how to 'see' the horses. I kept seeing the smiley face on their noses. LOL anyone else have this problem?

Darn Annie, I could have made such a cute bouquet with all my different daffodils since we know how daffy Shirley can be at times. LOL Sadly they are all gone now. :o(

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

I have a large Color Spectacle Decorative Dahlia tuber for any one of my OBF sisters who wants it (see photo). Don't send me a trade... I just need to find it a home. I only have the one.

It's not on the Georgia Dahlia Society's heat tolerant dahlia list, so I don't think it's going to do well, here, in the deep south.

The blooms can get up to 6 inches!

What fun things everyone is receiving.
Shirley, I love Dancing With The Stars and usually watch it, but I like The Voice better so I'm watching it this season.
I wish they came on at different times so I could watch both.

Beautiful Dahlia Sheri. I've never grown Dahlia's and I don't think they would do well here, but I love them.
My brother in North Georgia grows them, and I remember living near a lady in North Georgia that grew the dinner plate size. She had to stake them every year. So Gorgeous.

I received a beautiful homemade personalized card from Promise with a package of wildflower seeds, Texas Bluebonnet seeds, Mexican Shellflower bulbs and a pen.
I have a wildflower area that will be perfect for these.
Thank you Promise.

Happy Birthday to Shirley and Happy Tuesday to All.

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Hi Sheri! I would love to give your dahlia a new home if it hasnt been spoken for yet? Please let me pay your postage if nothing else? Thank you for considering me.

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Yay Jayeanne! I think this Dahlia will love Rhode Island! No postage or anything, please. Just want her to have a good home. :)

Ruth... I'll be in touch at the end of the season and let you know which of my dahlias did the best in the heat, then I can send you those tubers, if you're interested. I'm rushing to get everything planted before June. It's getting hot here!


 o
RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

You're welcome Shirley and Ruth. I enjoyed putting your packages together. It was a challenge to figure out what to get someone in Texas.

The weather is FANTASTIC here and I am busy cleaning the house. The kids will be out of school for the summer Thursday. Lord help me.

Nice picture of the dahlia! Beautiful flower. The horse cookies look good too. Y'all have a wonderful week!!!

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

What beautiful dahlias everyone is posting. I had some but I totally forgot to dig them up last year. Such a disappointment because I had them many years. Around here you have to dig them up in the fall and replant in the spring.

My envies should arrive today as the one I sent in our Fostess swap arrived yesterday but it didn't have as far to go.

Beautiful day here. I am bouncing in and out of the house, doing a little housework them out to do some gardening. I am off this weekend so plan to do a garden marathon so need the house clean. I wish I could afford to have someone clean. LOL

Margo

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Thank you Sheri! I will try my best to give her a good home! and if all goes well - will post a photo =)

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Nikki, Dahlias already....I had no idea that they bloomed this early anywhere!!

Margo, curious, what is the going price for a wedding dress these days?

Shirley, do you have to pass a final exam to officially become a Master Gardener?
I do watch Dancing With The Stars.....tough call on who will take the prize...Meryl/Max or Amy/Derek.........but I am going with Meryl and Max. The ladies in the finals, Meryl, Amy and Candace are three of the most gracious, classy female celebrity dancers that I can remember on the show and they don't whine!

Sharon, I am confident that you can come up with a "picture perfect" for Miss Shirley....LOL!

Laura, thanks for your address....working on prizes!!

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Annie, still need about 8 words for Bingo.

As for wedding dresses, we don't have many choices here in this area so we are forced to basically go to a chain called David's Bridal. My past experiences with them have not been that great so wish we had somewhere else to go. We have given Emily a 500 dollar budget and the dress she fell in love with is just that but there is a sale so we deduct $50 from the cost. The real kicker is the alterations. If she doesn't get a good fit in her size, alterations and hemming could cost more than half of that. My older daughter didn't need anything done to her dress and it looks like Emily made only need hemming. We haven't ordered it yet cause we are hoping they will get it in a size 10 so we can see what it looks like before ordering.

Have been doing some successful cleaning and gardening today so must get back out there.

Margo


 o
RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Annie - Yes I have 4 blooming so far and 1 about to bloom cant wait to see the color looks maroon possibly. I wish I had names for the dinnerplate mixes.
Carol - I got your email and sent my address.
I have 4 words left for bingo.
I know Ive been staying a little quiet, but I have been watching and reading and still learning about you all.


 o
RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Love the flower photos, Nikki. The purple and white NOID dahlia looks very familiar. I think I can find the name.

I took this photo today. I was gifted this Garden Wonder Dahlia (which is performing like a champ) from Alana in a FOTESSS swap. I just love it.

Shirley... I wanted to tell you that hubby and I are big DWTS fans! We find it hard to believe that people can actually move like that. Val and Derek are my favorite dancers. I love Derek's choreography. That guy is amazing.


 o
RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Wow, love the Dahlia pictures. I started quite a few smaller ones from seed this year ... starlight dahlias. And I received some seeds from one called Pooh. I don't know how long it takes the big ones to bloom from seed, but I was very excited to see how big the tubers were for only a couple weeks growth.

Annie, 6 more for me for the Birthday Bingo. Did we all choose the same words?

Ok here goes, I guess I will be the first contestant in the
PICTURE PERFECT CONTEST
 photo IMG_2714_zps7c683ace.jpg
While walking the dog today, I was thinking of Annie's request that we come up with a bouquet for Shirley. As I walked through the woods I saw the Jack in the Pulpit. Yes, Shirley this stately wildflower reminded me of you, of your Faith that you show to us time and time again. It is only fitting that this flower is the tallest in the bouquet, God is put first above all. Next I used the Umbrella (mayapple) plant. It represents the umbrella that you and your husband provide for family, keeping them safe.
For Days passed, maybe times that were trying, the Teasle.
Unbloomed Tiarella cordifolia (wild foam flower) are for the dreams and days yet to come.
Wild yellow Mustard is a weed. Although it is a beautiful weed, it is a weed none the less. We all have weeds in our lives and in our gardens. Shirley like the rest of us has weeds in her life, but I bet she does a very good job at weeding them out.
Wild Sensitive Plant foliage (Chamaecrista nictitans) needs no explanation ... and I love the foliage!
I had to include something pink and found the wild Geranium maculatum. Beautiful color for a Beautiful Woman, inside and out.
Way down at the bottom of the bouquet you can see the small white flowers of the Wild Strawberry plant. We all need the sweet things in life. Shirley, you are one of those 'sweets'!

I know, I know, not the prettiest bouquet .... my hubby laughed when he saw it. LOL But I stand by my work!
I tried taking several pictures of the bouquet ... the one I posted is the best of the lot. LOL
I can't resist, I have to post a close-up. This is not my entry, just a close up so you can maybe see the flowers/foliage a little better.
 photo IMG_2715_zps278e6f3e.jpg

Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with ... especially those of us who are flower deprived.
I'm sure their bouquets will be prettier and more colorful.

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Sharon, very creative and well thought out. I thought that worked out very well. There isn't much in the line of color in my garden either but don't think I could come up with such a creative idea.

They are talking of overnight thunderstorms for tonight. I hate when bad weather hits at night since we can't hear the tornado warnings where we are. They did say it would have more bark than bite. I am sure either way, it will wake me up.

Sharon, received your sweet card and seeds: Veronica Darwin's Blue and Musselburg giant leek. I am VERY happy with your choices. I do not have either one. I did try a different leek seed last summer, but I think they got too wet. I think this time I will try them in a tall pot/container so I can keep an eye on them. We grew leeks one summer over 20 years ago and loved them.....and never have grown Veronica before so that will be fun to try.

Thanks a bunch!

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Sharon-So true I am not daffy some of the time but most of the time. LOL Love your bouquet....WOW can you ever write from the heart. We have a new florist in town and I love the owners work. She uses out of the ordinary things in her creations and she is probably the #1 florist now.

Beth-Good for you...I have done the same before and so glad I did. Housework, gardening and all the other things will be waiting for you anyway.

Promise- Your school is out early in Tn...we missed so many snow days they will be going way late this year.

Nikki-Love your dahlias, I have daylily Jolyene Nichole and plan to keep it always. I phase out the older ones and replace with newer intros but there are a few oldies that I will keep.

Margo-I love yard work but hate housework, I would love to have someone clean mine too.

Annie-Yes we have a final test but it is open book so not too worried. I find it easier to google the questions.

Sherri-I agree Derek is the best choreographer ever....he amazes me.

I love dahlias and have several favorites but I have never seen a dahlia that compares to "Show and Tell' I first saw it entered in a County Fair..of course it took Grand Champion. I ordered it this year and plan to enter it in the Fair.

More wonderful Birthday Gifts arrived today:

From Suzanne:
Beautiful Birthday Card
Hibiscus Double Lavender seeds (I hope to get these beauties planted before we leave for the week-end)

Thank you Suzanne I hope to post pictures when all these beautiful flowers received bloom.

From Margo:
Beautiful Birthday Card
Matchbook note cards (I need these all the time)
Lilac scented sachet (I need this on my desk at work..someone heated up their lunch today and it smelled bad in the office the rest of the day)
Pepper Orange Sun seeds....will get these planted pronto
3 Metal plant stakes (Never seen these before..a blue, red and green bird metal plant stakes....too cute)

From Annie:
Beautiful Card
$5.00 for coffee, ice cream or candy bar...will think of you Annie when I decide. It will probably be a snickers blizzard from Dairy Queen.
Gomphocarpus physocarpus (Hairy Balls) love seeds I have never tried before, and bought from our very own Remy's Sample Seed Shop.

Thank you Dear ladies.....good night

Carol! I'm so happy that you loved your seeds! Did the chocolate arrive OK? It's getting pretty hot here, but the temps are delightful in the PNW. So, maybe it was only half-melted... ha! I love it when I find a fellow "chocolate lover".

Shirley... Swann Island Dahlias has Show and Tell dahlia. Was that a county fair in SC? Maybe it's heat-tolerant! I loved reading about all your sweet birthday gifts. :)

Annie, I think this is the best birthday party I've ever been to. Great swap... thank you!

What's this about The Sample Seed Shop?! I just found that store, thanks to GardenWeb and placed my order for my fall planting last weekend. I was planning on doing some ordering from her for my winter project with the milk cartons.

I love these flower pictures y'all are posting. So gorgeous! I wish I could have beautiful flowers. I have a very amateur collection of flowers. Y'all put me to shame, but I am learning and can't wait to have some "prize" plants growing.

This weekend is the Knoxville Plant Swap and I am completely unprepared, but as always, I am learning what to do for next year.

The kids have a half day today. The school system added 20 minutes to each school day to make up for our snow days. Which was a nightmare. 10 minutes earlier in the morning and 10 minutes later in the evening. My youngest is graduating Kindergarten and my oldest is entering HIGH SCHOOL. *sniffle* My babies.

God bless y'all. Have a fabulous Memorial (observed) Weekend!

"PICTURE PERFECT FOR MISS SHIRLEY"

Miss Shirley,
Please enjoy this Red, White & Blue bouquet from my garden for your Birthday and Memorial Day.

Just a note. I'm playing but in my book anyone who goes walking thru the woods and finds Jack in the Pulpit and writes such a beautiful story has already won.

Promise you are so welcome, those seeds were hand collected by me from my gardens last year, hope they do well for you =)

Sheri!! OMG osh Sheri!! How can I ever thank you enough for the HUGE and I mean HUGE Dahlia! wow! I have never see the tubers that large! wow! What are your best suggestions for this? Do you think I should plant directly into the ground or did you have it contained in a container? I can't wait to see the blooms on this! ...And I am snacking (spoiling my dinner, lol) on this delicious Ritter Chocolate bar you sent- milk chocolate with whole almonds! YUM!! I feel so blessed and honored to be a part of this amazing group with all of you wonderful ladies.

My girls have their last band and jazz band concert tonight for the year, so I am off to get ready for that....

Thank you again Sheri for spoiling me rotten (which I dont mind at all, lol), I hope those seeds do well for you Promise and Happy Birthday Shirley! Last but not least, thank you ANNIE! This has been one FUN party celebration this month!!

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

I am loving all the pics! Beautiful flowers everyone has. I have been down all week with my left leg. I barely, I mean barely bumped it Monday night and saw dr. Tuesday morning. Swollen on my shin the size of softball. Now I was back all afternoon. Size is down, but the pain has been unbearable. Going for Ultrasound in morning. So decided better do my bouquet. So grabbed a couple things and decided that would have to do as not suppose to be on my leg. So here's Shirley's Bouquet from me. I had big plans of this, but I like this one. So simple only 3 different flowers in it. I have loved everyone's so far!
Hope all have a great evening!
Hugs to all, Melinda
P.S. Probably little blurry due to pain shot and meds!

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Jayeanne-Love that bouquet and the Owl...I love Owls and have lots of owl jewelry.

Promise-Remy (a member of the OBF group) owns the sample seed shop. I know she is way busy these days with her business so she does not get to participate in the swaps. How far are you from McMinnville, Tn? I was told by our teacher that McMinnville is the place to go for the most nurseries in the U.S. I was drooling when I googled it and found out it is true. I plan to visit there sometime in June.

Ruth-Wow good job on that bouquet and that vase is beautiful. The 'Falling in Love' poppy is like no other poppy I have ever seen. I will have to order seeds for it. I have daylilies with pods but no blooms yet.

Sheri-My favorite fair is in Hiwassee, GA and it is called the Georgia Mountain Fair. I go just to see the flowers. They have an air conditioned building for all the entries and they stay beautiful the whole week. Unlike our fair which is in Sept. and so very hot and in a building with no air conditioning.. Needless to say the flowers are wilted in 2-3 days. I did ask the Guy over the fair about it and he said that was what they had (and pretty much take it or leave it.)
I personally don't think men appreciate flowers anyway.

Sharon thank you so much for the:
Sunflower 'Sunny Smile' seeds (I love sunflowers)
A really old post card with flowers - which Sharon said made her think of my helleborus flowers
Treats - Vanilla roast almonds and Strawberry cheesecake chocolate stick. Yum never had these before.
Beautiful matching Birthday card and envelope.

Thank you so much Sharon.

Melinda-Your arrangement is beautiful....such talent all you ladies possess. Hope your leg gets better, praying it will be good as new soon.

Susan-Love your bouquet, such a good combination and those orange poppies really stand out.

Night ladies.

Shirley

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

I really love the bouquets! This is such a great group.

You're very welcome, Jayeanne. It is kind of a "monster tuber". :) It would love 6 to 8 hours of sun and plant it 4" to 6" deep with compost and your favorite fertilizer. You don't need to water it until the above-ground shoots appear. It's pretty plump with water.

Sheri

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Beautiful bouquets posted here.

Shirley, our fair is in August and the same thing happens. Beautiful flowers are entered and if you don't get there the first day, they look terrible after that. I have always wanted to enter my flowers but I just never know in June (when you have to sign up) what is going to be good come August.

I have to say my hubby is one who loves flowers. He doesn't mess with the gardens too much but is most willing too pull all the vicious weeds, (pointed out by me only, lol) including the nastiest of nasty, the Canadien thistle. He will put in new gardens for me any time I ask. He does this because he loves to see the finished beauty in the gardens. He has a great appreciation for them and knows how much work it takes.
My brother will mow down anything in his path so my sil does fake flowers in her yard. How NOT fun is that?

I lived in Kalamazoo, Michigan years ago and little did I know, there is many greenhouses there. My bil still lives there and told me about it a few years ago. When we lived there, we lived in an apartment and were just learning about gardening. On my last visit, I was like a child in a candy store going from building to building. I need to go back.

Have a good day all. The weather is the best again here today so hopefully it is the same where you are. Margo

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Sorry to be slow in checking in! Shirley asked for a picture of my granddaughter so here are the 3 generations: Miranda, my daughter, and me.

I only need 3 more words to have Bingo - but I suspect everyone only needs a few more words at this point.
Not much happening here for the weekend. Monday is my wedding anniversary. 41 years!

I haven't been online much because I went to the hospital (outpatient) on Monday to get a pain injection in my back. It certainly did not correct everything and by now it should have taken effect so we'll see what the doctor says when I go for my visit. I am starting to think you are never pain-free after you hit 60. Sure hope that's wrong!

Shirley, I'll e-mail you some suggetions on how to make the holder for tea bags. Everyone have a safe weekend!

I am going to try to post a bouquet for the contest. Most of my roses have stopped blooming because it got too hot for them, but I'll see what else is out there. It may be a foliage bouquet from the looks of things!

Jeanne


 o
RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Jeanne, beautiful picture and such great smiles.

Got one more word today in Bingo but need five more.

I am going to be gardening most of the next three days. I am going shopping with my daughter and sil tomorrow after we go to the farmers market but the rest of the time you will find me in the garden. Do need to get some sunscreen though.

Happy Memorial day weekend everyone. Margo

Love all the bouquets.
My Iris hasn't bloomed this year and I'm thinking it isn't going to.

Happy Birthday Shirley!!

Shirley this is my first time growing "Falling in Love" poppies. I've had a few more different colors bloom. Will try posting a few. Sorry it will be single pictures. First one is a peachy color.

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Thanks for the Happy Birthday Wishes...I've had a fantastic day. We are visiting my Dear Cousin and her Husband in Charlotte, NC. Woke early and went to yard sales, after yard sales we shopped at all the thrift and consignment shops, and last we shopped at Ross (my favorite store) and more shops. Ate lunch at Golden Corral, and it was so good. Best chocolate pie I have ever eaten. What a fun Birthday it has been. Tomorrow we are headed home but plan to visit Hendersonville, NC for a town plant sale. They close all the shops in this town and from one end of it to the other they set up booths of flowers. Vendors, nurseries and others sell plants all day. Can't wait to check it out.

Jeanne-Thanks in advance for directions on making the tea bags. Love the 3 generation picture...

Ruth-Wow I need to grow poppies....love them. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us.

Shirley

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Shirley, it sounds like you had the best birthday ever. A lot of different kinds of fun. So glad you enjoyed it.

I went to the Toledo farmers market. This is flower weekend but the real big day for it is tomorrow when they will have 35 different plant vendors. I did great just with the ones that were there today. I bought pink balloon flower, pineapple mint, lemon grass, English daisies, and spider web hens and chicks all for $1.25 each. I then got a green jewel echinacea for $7.00 in the big gallon size. I hope it is as pretty as it looks. I am just way too tempted to go back tomorrow but really need to keep working on the gardens as I am making good progress.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Margo

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Annie... I sent you an email yesterday. No need to send another envie. I bet it will show-up! :) The post office has been taking forever to deliver non priority stuff that I send. Everyone must be on vacation!

I did get my Preakness prize. Love it! You're very thoughtful and generous, Annie. :)

I've sent you a package of Speedy Green F1 pickling cucumber seeds. Hopefully, they're as fast as the package indicates!

Hi again ladies. I'm Home!
This photo is Great Grandson Michael and his Grannie ( my daughter)at a lunch break in Hot Springs. Grannies Kitchen is a great place to eat. They fed us well and treated us like family.
Wanted to do a four generation photo but we were too busy having fun.
Flower photos are on here are just beautiful. I have nothing blooming now but Cat mint and some iris.
I got my card and seeds from Nikki, hollyhocks. THANKS, I hope to grow a lot of different types and colors and these will be a nice addition.
Laura, I promise I'll be mailing Tuesday. Planned on Monday but somehow forgot it was a holiday.
Busy day here at the farm. Jack and a neighbor are cutting some trees, I'm doing refreshments for church and the working in the garden. Busy, but FUN. Doing things we want to do.


 o
RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Hi hi hi,

Beth, no hurry as I'll be around. Fun with family is WAY more important anyway. I'm loving all these pictures from everyone!!

Annie, my boobie prize arrived yesterday. Thank you so much, you shouldn't have!

Shirley, what a wonderful sounding day. And a whole town full of flowers for sale?!?! Sign me up!!! Nothing much is blooming here but I'm going to find a bouquet worth sharing anyhow!

This week I bought an adult tricycle with an 'assist motor'. Mike and I went riding today- I haven't been on any kind of bike since I was about 8 years old- and I loved it but am so sore! We did about 1.5 miles on semi-paved roads, and I only used the motor some of the way home, so a definite accomplishment! It has a nice big basket on the back so I may ride over to the greenhouse down the street and see what they have blooming.

I've also been poking around the National Germplasm Repository. They have LOTS of seeds for distribution- mostly for science I think, but maybe they'll send me some too? I'm picking out varieties not only for me but hard to find seeds that I think yall may like, too. Keep your fingers crossed!

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Here is a bouquet for you, Shirley. I'm glad you had such a nice day. I bought a few plants yesterday, too. Just couldn't resist.

My larger roses have just about quit blooming but I had some mini roses and pansies, spirea, rose campion, etc. so I made this mini-bouquet in an antique china shoe that belonged to my great grandmother and posed it in the fairy garden that I made yesterday - hope you enjoy it. (Sorry about the hose in the background. I should have thought to move it.)

We got some rain last night and today so that made it a good day for me!

A birthday bouquet for you Shirley! Sorry for all the junk on my kitchen chest. After taking the picture I took the bouquet over to my mother to enjoy as today is her 93rd. birthday. One of the iris starts in the bouquet was from my fathers iris beds and I wish I knew what it is named. Will put a picture of it on this site tomorrow to see if anyone knows its name.

Hello ladies...I'm back home, need to work outside tomorrow so made our visit short. Well I went to the Hendersonville plant sale and what a sale it was. I told DH when we got there we would check out the vendors and etc and eat lunch afterwards. Should have eaten first, I'm thinking their town was probably the size of ours and it would have 30 vendors or so. Not so, the stores on main street were 6 blocks long. We were so tired and only saw half of it...probably 3 blocks of it. My blood sugar level was dropping and I said I need to go and eat lunch. A lot of people had brought wagons and pulled their plants around in it. Another mistake we made for we were trying to carry all the plants in our arms. I bought 7 Japanese Irises, 2 Variegated Caryopteris, 1 Variegated Weigela, 2 Sedums, variegated ajuga and 1 easter egg plant (solanum melongena). Can you tell I love variegated plants.

Annie-You must come and go with me next May....plan on it. I'm definitely going again next year...much smarter I hope.

Promise, Jeanne and Suzanne - Good job on your arrangements. It sure is going to be hard to choose a winner in this category. I may have to have DD come to the rescue and pick the winner.

Margo-Great deal on the plants you found, you can't go wrong paying $1.25 for sure.

Beth-Michael sure is a cutie....I love that age. They never run out of energy.

Laura-I've never seen an adult tricyle...sounds like such fun.

Annie-I forgot to post my Birthday Card and gift from you. Wow you gave me $20.00 to buy my favorite Brug. How much fun it will be to pick one out. Thank you so very much Annie.

Annie wrote in my card: Wishing you the most wonderful Birthday even if it is 'make believe'. Make believe lets us all be young again.

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

So many pretty bouquets. Nothing is blooming here but iris's. Not complaining because they are beautiful and the weather is perfect and I just have to be patient.

I noticed I am not getting any emails from follow up posts here anymore so I unchecked the notices then rechecked to see what will happen.

Happy Memorial day everyone! I worked too hard in the gardens yesterday so might stay in and do something else today.

Happy Memorial Day all! Today I remember our veterans who fought and died for the country I love. In remembrance of my Mom. It's been 2 years, but the wound of her loss is deep. I wish I could tend her grave up in Michigan. I hate cancer, she was 54 and my best friend.

Also, GW isn't sending me mail either. Maybe they got glitchy for the holiday.

Have a great Memorial Day, ladies!

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Happy Memorial Day everyone!
Such wonderful weekends everyone is having! Is anyone doing anything special today for the holiday? We're going to a friend's house for a cookout. I love when days off work coincide with wonderful weather and fun plans! I'll try to post a picture of the trike when I can.

Promise, where in Michigan is your mother's grave? I live just outside Flint and would be happy to help if I can. I'm sorry to hear you lost her so early.

Annie, tell your pups just three more words for Bingo.

Margo, I am going to follow your lead on the GW notification.....maybe that will work. Enjoy the "inside" today.

And God Bless our women and men, who have lost their lives to protect us and our wonderful country......forever heros.

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

Thank you ladies, you are so kind! There is someone keeping Mom's grave, I just wish I could be there to do it and add my touch. My Aunt, Grandmother, Grandfather are buried there too. I would just like to go put flowers on their graves and pay my respects.

My family is from just outside of Kalamazoo, it is no where near Flint. It's really closer to Chicago than Detroit. Almost in the middle of the two. It is where I grew up. I sure miss the lakes and being able to walk barefoot in the grass. At least here in Tennessee, my Husband has a job where he comes home every night! I like the winters better in Tennessee and I LOVE me some Southern hospitality!

It means so much to me that you ladies would go out of your way to do that for me though. Thank you!

4 more spaces before I can call out the B word.

I've done lots of weeding and planting lately. I didn't actually go to the Knoxville plant swap, but a girl held some things for me. I received a cutting of Katrina Rose, Snowball viburnum and Burkwood viburnum. I was giving some Rose of Sharon that is just about dead now. Cells of English Daisies, Iris rhizomes, daffy bulbs, and some plants she didn't know what it was! I have kept busy finding them places. My garden is a work in progress and I love it!!!! I also love all these birds songs and the intoxicating smell of honeysuckle. That invasive critter owns my backwoods.

Y'all enjoy this magnificent weather and good luck on your "B" word!!!

Beat wishes to all the BINGO players. Sounds like a tight race.
Trees are down but now all the trimming and cleanup present a challenge. I'm excited about all the prospective mulch that will be available in a couple years.
Grandaughter and the boys are back home again, sure wish they lived nearer. Meanwhile I'm glad to be so close to my two daughters. It's the first time in many years.
Laura I was at the PO bright and early to mail your envelope. They predict Friday for delivery but I'm Hopeing for Maybe Thursday.

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

I need to apologize to Suzanne (hibiscusfan). I received her card last Thursday. I thought I would have the weekend to post my reply here, but our neighbor at the cottage didn't have his summer cable turned on yet. He lets us use his internet while we are there. We have an Ipad that we take with us just to keep us tuned into the news and such (gardenweb)... no TV there. We left Thursday night and just got back today .... ahhh, 5 days off work... it has been wonderful.
Suzanne sent me a very nice card with 2 pack of seeds I've been wanting; Artemisia and Aquilegia 'Blue Star'. Thank you very much Suzanne!!!!

I still need one more word for the Birthday Bingo.

What Beautiful Bouquets everyone has been posting ... I know I would have trouble choosing! So many different ideas and colors. I love the colorful bouquets!!!! But then again, I love it when someone uses a wine glass as part of the picture. LOL

Promise, my sister has lived out on the west side of Michigan since she married a man from there. She lived in Portage for a while and now lives in Vicksburg just south of Kalamazoo. I'm over on that side of the state several times a year. It is so different from South East Michigan.

Morning! Well my semester finally ended so I get a break. Been really busy over here. My daughter is now trying to nest and get ready for the baby. We are in the process of painting the bedroom to get it set up. She is about 27 weeks and getting big. Its getting hot over here in the 90's and will be getting hotter.
Ive been stuck with just 2 words left in bingo for about 4 or so days. Have a good day!

Mary Ellen,
I received your card and seeds yesterday. Thanks so much. The front of the card has a variety of clematis on it - looks like a photo. Are these from your garden? Beautiful!
Also, Mary Ellen reminded me of a swap I hosted many years ago - and I had forgotten I did that one. Your memory is better than mine!
As for seeds, I received Cucumber 'Mexican Sour Gherkin' and Forget-Me-Nots. Both very much appreciated. I am going to try to plant them before it gets any hotter.
Have a good day, everyone!

Sheri, I don't think it can be definitely identified, but it looks like my Alabama Jubilee.
Or maybe MAUNA LOA (I don't have this one)
Whatever it is, it's beautiful.

Being raining on and off for days here! Getting behind in yard work, pours everytime want to do anything!
My leg is still bad but able to get around on it. Whole thing has turned purple and red and green to middle of my foot, itches and still has lots of pain! Wearing an ace wrap and that helps some!

Ruth, that might be it! I've narrowed it down to Alabama Jubilee or South Seas (because of the pink stripes down the center of each petal).

One more word to go, for me, Annie! Last month's Pirate's Treasure BINGO game was really close, too.

I just didn't get a chance to do a bouquet and I apologize. Still really not much color out there and I don't think I could complete with all the lovely bouquets posted.

Still need two words for Bingo. It is weird that no one has had a Bingo yet.

Hope everyone is enjoying the weather like we are here in Ohio. Couldn't ask for better and it is going to last a few more days.

I need two words as well...looks like we all need the same ones.

Wow all those beautiful arrangements....I will corral Ms. Sheila and give her the job of choosing. Will let you know soon Annie.

Annie-Steve asked $450.00 for the Dobermans. He only has one left now, there were 8 in all. Brittney (GD) took the only girl in the litter. She ordered the cutest spiked pink collar for her off Ebay. Of course you have to have their ears cropped. We are a Doberman family....we have had 5 total. Thank you so much for the kitchen towel, beautiful colors.

Melinda-Hope that leg gets better soon.

Mary Ellen-Thank you so much for:
The beautiful Birthday card
Cucumber 'Mexican Sour Gherkin' seeds
Carrot 'Cosmic Purple'
Carrot 'Atomis Red'
DH is excited about planting some carrots. Thanks again

I will post the June swap this week-end....can you imagine having to follow Annie with a swap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now I know why Shirley didn't post she'd rec'd my card

It wound up back in my mailbox yesterday, postage intact!!!
And no indication why they returned it!

I'm going to re-package it and take it to the post office myself today and give them heck and tell them to decide what postage needs to be on it.

Sorry to be late Shirley!

Maybe someone got BINGO today, but I still need one more! Are we all waiting for the same one to be picked?

We've been getting rain lately and my plants love it! I see some spaghetti squash forming on those plants. I have them growing in tomato cages because I don't have much ground space for them to wander ... although they are certainly trying to do that. I may have to place slings under the squash as it grows larger. :-)

May went by in the blink of an eye!

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

My lovely package from Beth arrived today! Inside was an adorable card that reads "A Little Word Of Thanks... (open the card) ...For A Whole Lot Of Nice!" and cuttings of Apple Mint and what says Pineapple Mint but I suspect is actually Pineapple Sage. :-) Either way I have the perfect spot in the garden and can't wait, thank you so much!

Still one word left- We MUST all need the same thing!

Happy Evening!!

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

One of my last words was called but still missing one. This was one weird Bingo.

I ended up getting all the posts at once today. They must have been having some trouble here on GW with getting the posts to our email.

We just came in from having our first bonfire of the year. So nice. The temps are perfect, the air was still, the fish were jumping in our pond, and the bullfrogs were croaking. Couldn't have been a better evening for a bonfire. Good night all.

Congrats to Jayeanne and Sharon!!!

You've given us a great swap this month, Annie. Great prizes, too! I love my red and white dish towel from Kohl's... goes perfect in my "red accent" kitchen. Thank you for spoiling us this month. Best birthday party ever!

What other prizes did people win? I saw where Melinda got a Bobby Flay Oven Mitt. Fun!

RE: UPDATE: #2 obf tiz party time...let us celebrate this wom

I also won a red and white dish towel. It matches my newest red potholder perfectly!

Are we still playing for third place? (And if so, don't call anything till I get home from work! LOL) If not, I'm curious to know which Bingo words people are still missing.
