The Our Bloomin' Friends(OBF) group is a group of like-minded gardeners who are willing to commit to at least a year of "membership." Only current members qualify, ALTHOUGH, if you would like to become an OBFer, you must commit to at least 5 months of the year, trade or have traded with at least 2 current members, and be willing to send your package first. If you think you can agree to the guidelines, we would love to have you.

If you would like to join in this months swap we will be doing the white elephant swap. Your box will consist of all plants. Each person participating this month will list the items they will be sending in their swap box. I will then put all the names of everyone participating into a bag and let Dawson draw from the names. I will then list the names in the order they will get to choose a swap box. Please sign up by June 5th.
HERE IS THE WAY THE GAME IS PLAYED
Number 1 picks a box.
Number 2 can pick a box or steal from number 1.
If they steal from number 1, Number 1 gets to choose a new box. Number one can not of course take back the box that was stolen from them.
Number 3 picks a box or steals from number 1 or 2. Again if they steal a box from number one or two, number one or two can not take back the box. Number one or two must pick a new box.
Now we do allow if say down the line the original box chosen by some is stole a couple times like if number 1's box was stolen by number 2 and then it get stolen from number 2 and then number one is stolen from again, number one can retrieve their original box since it was not still in the hands of the original thief. Does that make sense

You can sign up without posting the contents of your box right now. I for one need to decide what will be in my box.

Melissa - Nice first box posted...that's alot of plants.

Maryanne - You are welcome...hope they root for you but I'm sure they will. The corkscrew willow is one of my favorite trees. The way the limbs twist is neat.

When I get some pictures taken I will post games and the prize.

RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Shirley -

This swap sounds like lots of fun. Please count me in for this one. I will post plants later. Lots of things are blooming now, so it's good timing for this kind of swap.

Take care everyone. Hoping everybody is safe and staying cool. Most of us seem to be in the grip of a relentless heat wave. It has been in the 90's here in NE Ohio. I think I'll melt if the heat continues much longer.

Melissa, I hope things are drying out for you. Please let me know how things are going.

Melinda and Faye, keeping you in my prayers.

It's going to be a crazy month for me. My daughter is getting married in July so we are wrapping up final details. My wedding anniversary is on the 24th and I will be taking a 3 day weekend to celebrate. Staying close to home, visiting an outdoor drama about 2 hours away and a historical village about 3 hours away. Should be fun.

RE: new: obf- white elephant plant swap

Maryanne-It is really up to you on that one. I hope I can find the post where you finalized the ending of the last white elephant swap we did. I LOVED IT. I will post it if I can find it.

Shirley


 o
i found it

Maryanne - I found it...we did this one back in 2009.

deb took box #1 and then remy picked #3. along comes shirley lusting after herb(s) and just takes #1 from poor deb! so in turn, deb takes #7. my turn, i choose 6.

jeanne, just in time gets that modem fixed and swoops in and takes #3 from remy. amybaby doesn't let jeanne even get the box in her hands and snatches it right up. jeanne decides to take #6 from me (mind you, i have never done anything to jeanne in my lifetime, and why she would take my box is beyond me!!!! LOL). my turn again, what to pick, what to pick...so i go for #5.

treasa says, "poor maryanne, i'll show that jeanne" (LOL) and takes 6. jeanne decides to pick #10. (thank you, it's the box i am putting together and i was starting to get a complex that no one wanted it). april comes slinking into the room and takes #6 from treasa.

treasa says, "why not, let me get in on those brugs and sweet bush" and up and takes #4 from amy who lost that box as quick as jeanne did from amy (by the way, how does it feel LOL). so amy takes 4.

along comes "miss sorry sweetie" theresa and takes #5 from me. well now, my hands are empty, seems i can't hold onto a box, so i go back to my original pick #6, and unfortunately, i took it from april. so april takes #5 from theresa and theresa in turn takes 10 from jeanne.

dottie, waiting in the wings, anxious to get a pick in, takes poor jeanne's #10 after all that work she went through to keep a box in her hand.

jeanne is feeling lucky, she has that opportunity to get back into her original game and get #3. so far, so good. she's safe.

treasa takes #9. and what does dottie do? she takes my box. dottie...dottie...dottie. i have an extra ticket to the morris arboretum. now i'm not sure if i am going to invite you LOLOLOLOL.

okay, am i safe in choosing #5 again? sorry april, but i had it first. i'm thinking in the back of my mind, april is coming back with a vengence, can't you all just feel it . time to give dottie a taste of her box stealing medicine, right april?

so now here we are, dottie takes #10 from theresa and theresa just can bear for me to have #5 and rips it out of my hands before i had a chance to hide it in the back shed.

i'm telling you, i didn't need a shrink before this, but just now, after seeing it was again my turn, made an appointment and hopefully gain my confidence back LMAO!

cut throated gardeners, the lot of you.

Shirley


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Thanks Shirley and Vina about my daughter's wedding. I have been working on details since 4:30 pm today. Almost all finalized. Speaking of shrinks,I will need one if my DD changes any more details. We're down to the wire, and she has to make up her mind!!! Did any of you have this experience with your daughter yet? I'm more frazzled than she is!!! lol!!!

Shirley, I am going to guess that you had botox injections. I know you are not a candidate for liposuction, since you do all that gardening you're probably thin as a rail lol!

Have a good night everyone!!!

Sue N.


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Shirley~ I'll guess laser treatment for varicose veins. I think that's considered cosmetic?


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Hi,
I think I will be able to play this month. I do have a few plants that had not come up yet for the tornadoes. They are showing and some blooming now.
Is there a certain number of plants?
Faye!


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Morning everyone!
I am going to guess that you have cosmetic dentistry for your teeth. Botox was taken and so was vericose veins...and I don't think you had booby job? :)

Talk to you soon!
vina


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

hello
I'm guessing laser hair removal.
michelle


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Too funny Shirley... I totally forgot that post. That was a great game just as this one will be. We are only doing one round, right? There was a game once when we did it in two rounds...thieving after thieving!!!!

Is lasik surgery considered cosmetic? That will be my guess.

It's been way too hot to be outside doing anything even when I get home from work....the temps are supposed to drop as we come into the weekend, so I will check things out and post my box, hopefully by Saturday. I'll be digging for May as well....so late (again).

Looking forward to this one!

I will play this month even though I am waaay late for my own month of May.

Will list plants later as I take a look.

 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Great write up about the swap in 2009. I remember that one well. Every time I picked a box it was gone and I was picking again. LOL (I told everyone you would have fun!!)
Sue, best of luck with the wedding plans. We had two daughters get married and yes, it is a hectic time. Both of them lived out of state so lots of the leg work was on Mom. Of course, every decision had to be run by them, too, so sort of three steps to accomplish every one item.
Shirley, I can't come up with a procedure that has not already been guessed that makes any sense to me so I won't guess. I wonder if when you disclose the answer it will surprise us.
Well, my plants have been watered and I pruned a rose bush and an azalea and that will be it for me on the garden until I do a little more watering for the plants on the deck in a few hours. Sometimes I think my whole summer goes into watering plants!

RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Shirley...Passing this month...in and out town!!! But...if I may...take a guess on your surgery!!! I am sure you are beautiful from head to toe but I will say you had eyelid surgery?????

RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Maryanne I think bunny said noid daylilies that had names but they were lost shirley I'll guess lazer hair removal or booty lift. my box so far has 3 noid days lavendar pixie day limelight huchera, green and white hosta green and white varigated grass, noid asiatic lily. raspberry ice pulmonia blue japanese iris superstition bearded iris cedar house sunflower seed and peanut bird feeder, lampwork glass turtle necklace and earring set. darn puppies made most of my plants noids. hugs carol

RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Maryanne- You are the winner I have had lasik and was so glad I did it. My age is catching up with me and I now need reading glasses but that's not as bad as the poor vision I once had.

Faye-No-no certain # of plants. You decide on that.

Maryanne - We will only be doing one round this time.

Jeanne- I too water all Summer. Our pump that we use to pump water out of the pond has quit so we will have to buy a new one. I keep 3 hoses going constantly when I get home each eve. We need rain badly.

Hi Amy thanks and we hope you have a great summer as well.

Annie-Will miss you this month.

This will be tough with all the nice boxes being put together. BUT that makes the stealing more fun. LOL

RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Hey everyone.

Beth, where are you that there's snow...are you back in alaska? I would welcome 24 degrees...the heatwave this week was a little too much, too soon.

amy - how the heck are you? i hope you are coming back to the group. it's been a long time. how are your kids?

shirley, i didn't even see that daylily you posted or that this was a contest. i remember just reading the question. beautiful flower - will be more than happy to welcome it to my garden.

jeanne, after i read that, i had flashbacks about that swap. how true, you couldn't hold a box for a minute. it certainly was a lot of fun. how are those precious babes?

i did a little planting today because i didn't go to work. i had a minor fender bender this morning. crashed the left front quarter panel and headlight. freak accident, can't even figure out what happened. no one hurt, thank God. the passenger in the other car was so miserable, screaming and hollaring at me in what i believe was korean. get over it, it's an accident.

i hope to have the contents of my box pretty well set come tomorrow. i want to have some "named" items and look forward to this swap.

hope everyone has a great weekend. we are attending an arts in the park event tomorrow afternoon and a strawberry festival in the morning. after that, i'll be raring to go with my shovel!!!!!!

shirley, what kind of pump do you use for the pond? i have a smaller pool pump that i would be happy to send to you.

sue best of luck with the wedding. lots of work, but i'm sure it will be fantastic.

LOL vina - boob job!

have a great weekend everyone. weather here is supposed to be pleasant.

RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Hi everybody, I've been trying to keep up with the watering in the garden. It has been really warm and no rain lately. I'm sure most of you are in the same boat. Hate to see my water bill, lol.

Beth, I envy you with the snow! Where exactly are you anyway? Alaska is starting to sound mighty nice right now, lol!

Thanks to all of you for your well wishes on my daughter's wedding, and I'm glad I'm not alone with having to do most of the planning and legwork myself. It's a labor of love though and I wouldn't pass up the chance to do this for my one and only daughter!

So I've been looking around in the garden and identified the named irises and daylilies that I will send in my box:

For my 7 named TB irises, I'll send one each of
Alabama Bound
Heavenly Body
Kevin's Theme
Lyme Time
Maverick Game
Oh Jamaica
Straight Up

For my 3 named dayliles, one of each
Cranberry Cove
Fellow
Garden Crawler (rare)
2 NOID daylilies
3 NOID iris, combination of tall, intermediate, dwarf Clump of Dark Purple NOID Siberian Iris, very pretty
Sedum, Stonecrop Golden Tip
3 Surprise Plants

This is fun already and we haven't even started!!!

Shirley,
I would say medium pink, lol. I planted the white somewhere a long time ago. I don't remember where, so it is probably gone. I think I would of noticed it in recent time.

RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

I was wondering how I get in on your guys round robin swaps? They look like a lot of fun! I would like to participate one day :)


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Hi Lovesherflowers - To become a member of this group you will need to set up trades with two members. When you have sent your trades to the two members you are in. Would you be trading plants or seeds?

I'm not sure what happened to Faye and Sue G but will try to find out.

Remy my pink is kinda medium but I would love to find the white.

Shirley


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

All these boxes sound great! This was a great idea Shirley. Can't wait to start choosing!

Have a good night everybody.

Sue N.


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

I e-mailed Faye and Sue G hope they are OK. As soon as they post their boxes we will start the choosing.

OK I had DH pick the names out of a hat in the order we will be choosing boxes.

Here is the order:
MELISSA
SHIRLEY
JEN
REMY
SUE N
SUE G
HEIDI
CAROL
FAYE
MELLEN
VINA

There is a rule I will state now so there will be no confusion once we start the game. If you have any given box 3 times the box will be yours and no one can choose
that box again.

Shirley


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Oh, Wow! I get to choose first? Can't wait until Faye & SueG post their boxes, this will be fun! :)


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Hi,
OK I have my plants. MY aunt has been real generous with her plants to help me get started again. Only I wish I could replace my cactus. I had alot in the greenhouse and some in the yard. Oh well.
Anyway my box will contain:

Ajuga, Bronze Beauty
Purple Leaf Shamrocks
Chameleon Plant
Vinca Major, Variegated
Periwinkle
Potatoe Vine
Jerusalem Cherry
Gold Child Ivy
Ladys Tears, Violet
Egyptain Walking Onion
Pink Evening Primerose
Purple Heart Plant
Asparagus Fern
Lamium, Groundcover
Iris, Mixed
3 - Cannas NOID, I think I will check on that
4 - Glads, Green Star
Blue Eyed Grass, Purple
Pampass Grass, White

All of these had not started coming up yet so the tornado did not get these. The groundcovers the tornadoes did not touch. I had just bought the Iris, Cannas and Glads
So somehow I found them still in the bag down in the holler. My aunt gave me plenty of the others to share and she said I can get more of them. Only she does not like cactus like I do. The tornadoes had broken the pampass grass but it is coming back now so I can get a rooted piece of it.
My yard looks totaly empty without plants but at least a few survived and I thank God mom did not have to live thru the tornadoes.
Faye!

RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Well, that's true, Shirley! :) But maybe, since I'm first & haven't stolen from anyone, these SWEET DEAR LADIES will be nice to me? LoL!!

RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Hi there lovesherflowers. I will do a small trade with you. Please send me an email with what you have available in the way of plants. Then I will give you a list of what I have as well. My list is a little outdated. Anyway, it's interesting that you are in Northeast Ohio and your birthday is May 6th. I also live in Northeast Ohio and share the same birthday. What a coincidence! What are the chances??? Anyway, I'll be more than happy to get you started. Now you'll only need one more trade to join:)

I didn't think you could steal back what was taken from you either, could be wrong tho shirley where are you I am adding one grow your own redneck to my box to make it more apealing

 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

let me know- never played before- sorry


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Well I am not 100% sure but when I wrote it down...Jen was the 3rd steal on box 7 and Remy was the 3rd steal on box 5. So are they now stuck with them???


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

that is if it is ok for jen to steal from Melissa


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

I thought Jen stole the box from Remy? LOL I didn't think it would get this confusing till the end...We are not even half way done with the choosing!!


 o
get to stealing miss bunny

I think it is if you have a box 3 times it is yours, so bunny steal it back it will be the 3rd time you have it, although I was hoping to get it but there all great boxes


 o
I understand now :o)

I see...I thought if the box was stolen 3 times, but the person has to have it 3 times. I too liked box number 7. I wanted that big mama hosta to go next to my big daddy hosta :o)
Is any one else getting bad thunderstorms? Our last few have had hail. Thank heavens there has not been alot of damage here. There was even report of an Amish guy that was struck by lightning out in the fields.


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

here is a quote from shirleys post to at least clear up one question;
here is a rule I will state now so there will be no confusion once we start the game. If you have any given box 3 times the box will be yours and no one can choose
that box again. hope this helps, come on carol wants her turn. just fake it and if shirley wants to change any picks she can. hugs carol


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

I can't help with Shirley's rules so you will have to wait for Shirley, but all of you have me chuckling! I'll keep checking in to see who is being naughty and who is being nice. LOL
Jeanne


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Ok Jen cannot take #7 back from Melissa..Melissa just took it from her. You can take someone else's box but not the one who JUST took it from you. Hope that makes sense.

Melissa has now had box # 7 twice.

You have to have a box 3 times in your possession to freeze that box.

Jen you are up but the only box you cannot take at this time is # 7. Because it was just taken from you.

Shirley


 o
RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Ok no problem... Still learning the rules. Then I will take back # 5

RE: new: obf- junes white elephant plant swap

Hi Maryanne - Wish you had stayed in the swap. Carol actually did surprise boxes for us one time in the traveling daylilies group. We sent her a description of our box (colors, bows, dots or whatever) and she posted a picture of the boxes with our numbers on them. You did not know what you were getting when you chose the box. We did do a second round after we were told what we had in the boxes and there was alot of stealing then.
