OBF (Our Bloomin Friends) is a membership group of regular participants having the option to join a swap here each month. Membership is required in order to participate. Please contact Shirley (Brittneysgran) or Carol (veeja3), if you want more information about becoming a member.

Whoa I'm behind on June's swap...way busy at this time of year. But that's a good thing, means our side business is doing well.

I thought and thought about this month's swap and decided we will do a special friends swap. Everyone who participates will post plants, bulbs, cuttings and etc., they have to share. Before our weather gets too hot for shipping plants we may want to get that coveted plant we have been looking for and someone here just may have it and we don't know it. There will of course be games through out the month and our beloved BINGO.

Sign ups will be until Tuesday, June 10th.

Melinda-Hang with this group and know you have many friends. Hoping you are uplifted today in every way.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.

OK game time ladies:::: I just went to see an awesome Singer. She is 81 years young and had 6 children, very famous.

Will give more clues tomorrow if no one guesses from this.

The winner gets this: New Sedum 'Thunderhead'

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Sounds wonderful but I am going to pass this month. I'll be stopping in to read mesages and see how everyone is doing. If members can play the game without swapping this month, I'll try to do that, too.

Shirley, I'm going to guess Loretta Lynn. I'm not sure how many children she has, but I know it's a lot. Wonderful, resilient woman! Remember her Crisco commercials?


 o
RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

I remembered what I was going to ask you, Shirley...

If we see something on the "want list" of our Special Friends, can we just send it to them? Some items I have a lot of, and I will post them for everyone. Other plants might be specific to one person's want list.

I'm still working on my list. I will probably post it on the 10th, when sign-ups are over. Fun!!!

Sheri


 o
RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

I'd love to join in this month Shirley.
Still not sure what we have to do, but I'm willing whatever it is. LOL

I'll 2nd that Loretta Lynn guess!
I'm going to keep my eye open for that sedum Thundercloud, Beautiful! ... even though I haven't had much luck with the sedum Purple Emperor.

Shirley, what a wonderful statement ... is it yours?

I'm sure it will be a good one.


 o
RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

I'd love to sign up for the swap and to be included in your group. I'll send you an email, Shirley.


 o
RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Sorry about confusing everyone....the twist to this is you will choose who sends to you. Yep choose your friend and they will send their list of plants to you in this swap. Everyone will post what will be included in their box and after everyone has done this we will choose our friend. We did this years ago in the Traveling Daylilies Group and it was a lot of fun. I will give the day we are to do this....so if you really want a special box be up early and pick that friend's box.. You may post what will be in your box anytime.

Sheri---You are the winner of the sedum Thunderhead....congratulations. Loretta Lynn was who I saw in concert last evening. Her twin Daughters also performed and boy can they sing, just like their Mom. She sang two songs and then sat down in a chair and I thought she just got tired, but later she said she had eye surgery and did not want to step off the stage. Such a great lady and performer.

More games to come.

Sharon-No that quote is not mine but I loved it. I read once if in your life time you meet one TRUE FRIEND consider yourself lucky.

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Thank you so much, Shirley! I don't have any sedum in my garden, so it will have a place of honor. :) I absolutely love the color of the blooms. I read where it comes from the amazing breeders at Terra Nova Nurseries. I always really love their plants.

I'm glad you got to see Loretta Lynn in concert. Did you know that Crystal Gale is her sister? Now I want to watch "Coal Miner's Daughter" again!

Sheri

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Congrats to Sheri! Beautiful sedum!
Welcome to the new people, and yes, Shirley I do feel I have many friends here from way back!
I wish for all a blessed and wonderful day! Off to church with my son and his family, my 2 great nieces and my grandson! Have a wonderful day all!

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

I think I got it, Shirley! We all make our plant lists, then, after all the lists are posted, we have a designated day to hurry and choose the box we want.... right? I'll start by posting mine, but please check back, just in case I edit it and add some plants the day before we pick.

Sheri

"Tutti Fruitti Petite Flutterby Series" dwarf butterfly bush - 4 cuttings.

1 “Onesta” Dinner Plate Dahlia tuber

1 “Dutch Explosion” Cactus Flower Dahlia tuber

1 "Peaches 'N' Cream" Dahlia tuber

1 “Festiva Maxima” Peony rhizome - this one was a rescue from the WalMart bargain bin. She has signs of life, though! I'm giving her TLC, until she ships.

At least one double hollyhock root. I purchased a pack of 5, on sale, and I'm seeing which ones are going to make it. Mix of pink, white or yellow.

Ming Toy Daylily Double Fan

3 or 4 “Red King” Crocosmia

Panorama Red Shades Bee Balm plant. This is the only red bee balm to come true from seed. It’s has done very well for me in the South. bare root

Cardinal Basil small seedling plant in a little plastic pot. NEW! variety from Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co.

Several Vista Gladiolus Bulbs

Several Peter Pears Gladiolus Bulbs

Hot and Spicy Oregano plant - bare root

Garlic Chive plants - bare root

Sweet Mint plant - bare root

Pineapple Sage - bare root

Ruby Red Penta Cuttings - may be rooted

Cherry Roma Grape Tomato plant. This is my absolute favorite cherry/grape tomato and I’ve tried so many! Indeterminate, heirloom and delicious. Small, potted plant.

4 Malaysian Dark Red Eggplant small seedlings (heirloom from Baker Creek). Asian eggplants are tender, sweet and seedless compared to regular eggplants. I fry them like squash. Very suitable for a container and the bumblebees adore their purple flowers.

1 or 2 “Guacamole” Hosta plant - very fragrant, likes some sun and is reported to be “drought resistant". bare root

1 Blue Lacecap Hydrangea NOID good-sized potted plant!

Picotee Begonia Bulb - unknown color

Nice boxes already....going to be difficult to choose.

Erica-I sent you an e-mail, hopefully you will get it.

Sharon-No absolutely not.. would never leave you out intentionally. I got too caught up in answering about the quote I posted. LOL

Sheri-Yes Terra Nova Nurseries has the new sedum thunderhead and some other new ones I ordered. Yes you have the swap rules perfect. When we did it with the Traveling Daylilies Group there were ladies who sat up until 12:01 of the day we were to choose our boxes. Such a fun group we were. Life gets really busy and the group died out. I still have plants in my gardens from some of them.

Nikki-Not sure about the ponytail palm. Maybe someone else can answer that for you.

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Shirley requested that I post a little about myself, which promoted me to finally update my profile with a bit of personal information. For now, this is me:

I write. I cook. I garden.

I've been interested in gardening and herbalism since I was a child. As an adult, life seemed to keep getting in the way of me being able to have a garden. I grew a few culinary herbs here and there, but virtually gave up on vegetable, since my backyard is in almost complete shade.

This year, I decided that enough was enough. I wanted a garden, and I was determined to have one. I tore out the front lawn, built raised beds and vertical pallet beds and converted my front yard into a garden. Now I have room to grow... which is the real start of the adventure.

I'm growing a bunch of common vegetables: tomatoes, peppers, corn, beans, squash, radishes, some herbs, and a few other sundry veggies. I'm hoping to be able to fill up the space I have left with a few unusual edibles, as well as more culinary and medicinal herbs. I am absolutely thrilled and excited to be gardening again.


 o
RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Wow, all these lists are tempting but after mulling it over really hard, I have decided to sit this one out. I will be checking in to see how things are going. Have fun everyone. Margo

Welcome on swapping this month Suzanne.

Wow these swap boxes sound wonderful. I think everyone's gardens must be in full bloom or close. My daylilies are starting to bloom and should be in their peak in two weeks, can't wait to see the new ones I have added bloom. Got a long day tomorrow for we are auditing night shift workers at another plant and they don't start work until after 5:00. So that means I have to work my 8 hours and then go with the auditing team for another 4-5 hours.

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

hey all...hope everyone is well.

Shirley, when is the cut off? I have plenty of plants, but can't say I know the names anymore. between dog eaten tags, names faded, etc., I have no clue what's what anymore, so i'm not sure what I have until I can get out there. we are experiencing some crazy rains, so today was out of picture...same goes for tomorrow. just need to know the cut off date.

thanks

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Thank you, Shirley... I really do love that Panorama Red Shades Bee Balm. This is my 3rd year of selecting plants and they're really blooming this year. I haven't saved seeds yet, but I will this year.

TOOMANYANIMALS BOX
PLEASE READ ALL OF POST

I'm going to make my offering so you have to pay attention to know what you may get.

Here are the rules for my box:

1. I will send you a total of 6 items plus a surprise

2. There are 4 categories, and you have to choose one item from each category. So that is 4 items.

3. Free Choice Items. That leaves 2 items that you get to choose from the list, no restrictions. Lets use Daylilies as an example: you have to choose one Daylily, then you can choose a second one as one of the Free choice items, or you can choose 2 of them as your 2 Free choice items. Ditto with the other categories. Just remember for a TOTAL of 6 items.

I hope that made sense.

BULBS
1 - Allium Christophii
1 - Tango Dot Com
3 - Pink Charm Daffodill

Daylily
1 fan Eternal Memories
1 fan Blue Pink Beauty
1 fan Musical Medley

HOSTA - rooted small starts
Dark Shadow
Golden Tiara
June

CLEMATIS - rooted small starts
Polish Spirit
Pink Fantasy

I just had to go and make it complicated ... but I wanted to give you some choice in case you had some of these plants.

Awesome boxes being posted.

Need some prayer requests....My Cousin was in a bad accident today,he pulled out on a busy highway into on coming traffic. A lady hit him and its touch and go for her, they air lifted her to a hospital which specializes in head trauma. He is badly beat up but is OK. It all happened over someone running over his dog and he was trying to get it to the vet, but it was dead when he was loading it in the car.
I know we love our pets, but we never should put them over a human beings safety, so very sad.

Healing prayers sent, Shirley.

I would be seriously happy with any of the boxes listed. Maybe I won't have to stay-up 'til midnight... then again, I do see some things on my want list! Fun!!!

Please check-back to my list the day before we choose. I may add some more, or swap some out. I checked my Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box and I can fit a lot!

Saturday, June 14 is the big "choosing day". Got it!

I'm having trouble choosing. Shirley, If I stayed-up until midnight to choose, would that be EST midnight? Thank you!

Sheri


 o
RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

My orange lilly is an asiatic not oriental, and i want to add superstition bearded iris. also for those sending cuttings, since they tend to dry out during shipping, they often turn into a dead stick by the time your recipiant gets them, so roots are preferred


 o
RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Beth, I can't say a medium flat rate box is mandatory, but it is what I was going for. If I have any extra space, I hope to fill it with other 'wants' of my person.

I'm really looking forward to this swap! Can't say I will stay up till midnight, but who knows. LOL

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Shirley sorry to hear about your brother and his accident, so sad for the loss of his dog. Hope both he and the lady involved are doing better.
Welcome to the new members of the group. My mind is frazzled and Im no longer good with names. LOL.. (getting older sucks) Im still trying to remember whos who since I joined! I know bad me.
So my daughter is still having a rough pregnancy. She is in her third trimester now (just barely) still getting sick and vomiting, swelling, really bad heartburn (nothing helps it). Good news we have the babys room ready. We painted it a peachy color called fresh mango surprise or something like that. The crib is all set up etc. Does anyone have access to ceramic letters I cant find any around me. When my daughter was little I painted a big letter and some small ones to make her name. My daughter wants me to make one for my granddaughter but nobody has ceramic letters. I would be soooo grateful if someone can point me in the right direction or maybe pick them up for me??????? I tried walmart, michaels, and joann fabrics, and there are no longer any ceramic stores in the area. I attached the picture of the one i painted for my daughter sooo many years ago..
Ok on to this months swap. So Im a bit confused now. Are we to send our whole list out in the box or do we let the person who picks pick and choose? How many items do we need to include or send. Are we doing a medium flat rate?

I agree with Sharon I'm going for a med. flat rate box if I can get all the plants in it. This is just like going through a plant catalog and picking out what you want. Such nice boxes how do we choose???

Carol-I changed your lily to an Asiatic and added superstition bearded iris.

If anyone has any changes to make or add to their box you have until Friday night....not sure what might happen at midnight. Once you have chosen a box, post on here the number and name of the box you are choosing. Make sure no one else has chosen that box before you.

Sheri-Not sure what you are asking about the time...Friday night at 11:59 P.M. you can come and choose your box and I would say by the time you get it all typed out it will be12:00 A.M. Saturday morning and that is official, hope that helps.

Nikki-Sorry to hear your daughter is having a hard time with her pregnancy. I know she will be glad when she is holding that precious little bundle and it is all over. Have you checked ebay for the ceramic letters? The one you posted is so cute.

GAME TIME:::::::::::::::::

I tried something today that I have never ever done before and loved it (OK keep it clean here) LOL...if you can tell me what I did you win this......I will give clues each day until it is guessed.

Bearded Iris Blue Eyed Susan

Shirley, my guess is miniature golfing!

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Frisbee golf?
My sister and her hubby just started this sport last year and they love it ... Why not Shirley! LOL

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Oops, sorry about the time confusion, Shirley.

When it's midnight in South Carolina (Eastern Standard Time), It's 11 PM, here. On the Pacific Coast it will be 9 PM. So I have to stay-up until 11 PM, if I wan to try and claim my favorite box... right?

I'm sure I can fit everything, on my list, in a Medium Priority Mail Flat Rate Box. So if someone wants it all, they can have it all... or you can pick and choose... or maybe double-up on some things. I have two of every dahlia listed.

Sheri


 o
RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

No one's guessed it yet...so you get a clue today.
Even though I went to a class you can do this via video.

 o
RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Good guesses everyone, but Nikki is the winner. First time ever doing yoga and I so enjoyed it. We did it outside under some huge shade trees so that was extra special.
Nikki maybe some other ladies from California can help with the time. I know you are 3 hours behind our time..so if its 5:00 here it would be 2:00 there.

Yes ladies we can choose boxes Saturday, June 14th so that means at 12:00 p.m. tonight anyone who wants to stay up can choose their boxes. Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Too funny, I see some of us managed to stay up till midnight!
I've been up since 3am and am so happy to get Beth's box!

I am surprised that my time on my first guess said 23:59, I waited till my iPad clock said midnight and then I counted to 2.

Sheri looks like you had the IN DEMAND box! Good going! And congrats to Shirley for being the fastest to click for it!

I'm going to bed with a smile on my face ... Nighty night ladies, it's been fun!

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

OK #4, Erica's box it is . Looks like we are both into herbs and you have some that I was still wanting. When I'm sure this is how it's going to be I'll contact Erica.
I'll be away most all day so it will be tonight or tomorrow.
Sharon, I may need your address. and I'll need to get mine to whoever is sending to me

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Is there a document that has all members addresses in it? If not can I make one?


 o
RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

I am not a member of the group, but I like the idea and would have picked Susan B's box. Uncanny, it had about six things I want.

Shirley, I stopped and prayed for your cousin and the other person. I will add them to my family's on-line prayer group.


 o
RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Carol...

To edit your "want list", scroll down to the bottom of this page and under "community" you'll see "member pages"... click on that. That should give you all the options for editing all your member info, if you're signed-in. :)

Sheri

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Nikki...

Shirley S. has a member address list to email you. I thought I had saved that email after I printed it out, but I didn't.

Shirley, I'm so sorry to hear about the accident your brother was involved in. I hope there is some improvement with the lady who was hurt so badly. Will you send me the updated membership list? I have one saved on my computer, but I think it's from about 8 years ago. Thanks so much.

Have a good week, everyone, and I know you will be receiving wonderful boxes.

RE: new: obf june's special friend swap

Carol, I got your email and tried again by replying. Any luck? I was just trying to find out if there was anything from the list that you really were looking forward to so I can send extras, or anything you couldn't use. Also hardneck garlic and horseradish, compliments of Mike's mom if you'd like.

Susan, That's OK... there is always next time! Did you go to the Bavarian Parade, and if so is it true Santa was there? (Because personally I think he should be hibernating or something!)

I hope everyone had a nice Father's Day Weekend,
~ Laura

Stunning daylily, Shirley!

Does anyone know what this blue-ish flower is? The leaves are scented... kind of minty. I scattered some of the seeds that I received in the "Secret Santa" exchange and I must not have made a label for this one. Thanks!!!
