Priscilla - I just wanna' say that I looked at the violinists pic this morn. It really IS sad that you were checking in here! LOL!

Tracy - Congrats on winning that gorgeous dl.

Carmen & Lisa - Congrats on getting to keep the 2 most popular boxes.

Karen - (It was you posting pics, wasn't it?) You have some beautiful plants and photos!

I was kinda' groggy when I was looking at them, but I believe that penstemon might be 'Violet Dusk'. I have that plant. We got along pretty well for 2 years and then the 3rd year it self seed approx. 10 billion babies! I'm still pulling them out of places I don't want them.

And I definitely, did not catch the pick of Rudbeckia 'Cherokee Sunset' but if you DO have that, it's a seeder too. At least where I live. I bought that from Bluestone, it bloomed beautifully all summer and then rewarded me with so many seedlings that you just can't imagine. I'm not trying to sound negative. I just wanted to give you the heads up so you won't be as surprised as I was.

To everyone else, "Hi!" (Especially you, Fran!) There's been so much chatter here that I can't begin to address most of it!


 o
Carmen,

Hello dear Carmen, may I please have your lovely box # 6?

Shirley, this is for youbomb Pictures, Images and Photos

Alana, would you like a turn today? Here you go! Now Run! Hurry Up and move those little chicken legs! Grab a box and HIDE!

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Tracy, that was so nice of you! Choosing a box so that I would have a chance to play was very thoughtful and kind.
I am so happy! You are a true friend.

Now I WILL TAKE BOX 6! That's right. I am an ungrateful wretch.


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Does this mean the game is finished since the last person chose a box?


 o
Not sure

I'm not sure because I have never played this version of the White Elephant game before, but I believe Tracy now has the option of choosing the last box or stealing.


 o
maybe

Or maybe not. Maybe she takes the last remaining box.Does anyone know for sure?


 o
oooohhh!

The suspense is killing me!


 o
dah, dah, dah, DUM!

Box #7 has not been chosen yet, so until it is, the game goes on!


 o
My pick!

I've been going back again to see which box I can steal, it's been a lot of work but it seems I can steal box #12 again! La la la la la!

Alana, you are so welcome! LOL! I was dying that you had to wait so long. Poor girl. It's the least I could do after blowing up your yards. Love you!

I don't have much time to visit, but I will check back in a couple of times in the next 2 hrs.

Pat, thanks for the heads up! Last year I let so much stuff go to seed, and paid for it big time!! I've been deadheading the naughty stuff the best I can, cuz I've got so much stuff popping up all over!

Carmen, them be some nice additions you added to your box!!

Yay! for Alana, you finally got to make a pick!!!

Priscilla, I still have to check out the violinist's pic.

Have fun everyone!

Fran - I didn't think you were laughing at me but thanks for trying to explain. I guess I was always more allergic than most but when I was about 13 I mowed over a hornet's nest with a push mower. I had something like 30 stings and had to be hospitalized. After that, stings really bothered me. Then sometime about 10 years ago, my body began reacting "normally". You know, it hurt like crazy for a few minutes but then you kinda' forget about it.

This guy yesterday was a different story. He stung me on my cheek, just to the left of my mouth and it swelled up like a balloon. Today my left eye is open enough to see, but not much more. The left side of my mouth looks like Angelina Jolie! And my neck is swollen right down to my collar bone. And that's with Benadryl and 24 hours!

Oh, well. At least I feel justified in staying in and doing nothing much. There's a bright side to everything!


 o
New gardens

It's actually a viola, but whatever... lol

So, what's the best way to cut a new bed for iris & daylilies & peonies? I have lots of shade, but found a fairly sunny area that I can add more flowers (WHEEEE!!!). Problem is, it's pretty much all lawn... well it's actually mowed weeds! Lots of sand, little topsoil to speak of. I want an easy way to convert this to a flower bed. I have a BIT of rotten manure (hoping to get more), and will have some compost soon. But I know that Peonies & Iris don't like to be over-fertilized/mulched, so how should I prep this bed?


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Yeap Pat, you can just relax today and take a nap when you need too, with the Benadryl that would be my excuse lol.

Good heavens, I can't spell worth a hoot, I honestly think I need a speak and TYPE, BUT with my dang southern accent that would probably spell things wrong TOO, so I guess I will just have to keep typoneseing to everyone and you can GUESS what I mean hahahaha

 o
New Bed!

Lasagna Bed! Best way to do any new bed IMHO!!!!

Viola, Schmiola, my kids play trombone and guitar so what do I know? LOL!

Goodness Pat, that sounds pretty terrible. Well, except for the Angelina Jolie look anyway. Take it easy and keep taking the Benadryl.

Fran, you are cracking me up with the Sports Announcer bit after each choice. LOL! Reminds me of watching a good football game.

Lasagna

    Sat, Jul 11, 09 at 12:26

ptilda - I was just answering your new-bed question but the answer is just like Tracy's... lasagna bed! I don't even go to quite as much trouble as a "real" lasagna. I just kill out the grass, sprinkle a pre-emergent, layer on the newspaper and mulch. Then I keep it wet most of the time and come back in a few months to plant.

Tracy - It's really not that great to have 1/2 of Angelina's mouth! It causes a lot of dribbling when I drink!

One more thing, Tracy. Did you get my taunting e-mail this a.m.? Since I didn't get any response, I can't be sure. (I liked it much better when I thought my e-mail was reliable!)


 o
YooHoo, Karen!!!

It's your turn to pick a box!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Camp Fire Pictures, Images and Photos I decided to make a little fire to light under Karen's butt. Maybe now she'll come back. Thought she wasn't taking off until noon (her time).

Pat, just checked to make sure my response was sent and it went through to you at 12:03. I think it may be lost in outer internet space. LOL!

I shall recap my email for you here. Ready? sticking out Pictures, Images and Photos

So the Angelina thing isn't working for you, huh? Well, how about some nice roasted marshmallows? I bet that would stay in that pouty puss of yours. (ugh, just got a mental image of marshmallow drool coming out of your face, ROFL!)


 o
Thanks Tracy

Yeah, and it looked like you KNEW I was going to do it because on the first on you put you subject as the box number and it played right nicely lol....

Now we are waiting on Karen, hmmmmm WHEN did she say she would be able to come back?

I KNOW my box is safe for the moment because it would be kind of silly for her to steal back her own box now wouldn't it?

I suppose I should go outside for a bit, but I am just not in the mood just yet. I am having an off weekend....(week too I guess since sick all week) little bored at them moment and not too sure what I do really want to do, didn't sleep last night, went to bed right before the thief crept in then was back up at 2:50 until about 5:00 got back up at 9:45 so, I haven't had much sleep and not in the mood to do much of anything.
I do need to get the Ostrich ferns that was mailed to me and I received yesterday in some water to soak before I plant them, I also got some weeping pussywillow cuttings MAN I HOPE those take! I REALLY want those!

Ok, well, I am sure no one wanted to hear about my off more so then other day days LOL....

Fran you have no idea how easy it to confuse this old woman

It took to just now to realize that Fanna was Fran LOL
I was wondering who the person was that joined our swap hehe. I was looking for a new box from Fanna ROFLing

I had a valenteer job to do today but couldn't make it, still not feeling real good with this stomach problem.
My grnson has his first boxing match this wkend and I was supose towork at the arena I couldn't make it he was very disapointed and so was but I needed to stay close to potty.

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

I SOOOOO sorry Carmen, I earn the nickname Fanna in the seed swap I did called the WOW THANKS I wanted THAT swap!

short version is:
I was talking to a friend about the swap LATE one night and I typoed funna for FUNNY and then next day I commented about it and said I wanted to change my name to Fanna, which sounded like Funna which was Funny when I am sleepy and can't type for FANNA translates to FUNNY and ever since then, those who were in THAT swap have called me FANNA, I even have tags with Fanna on them now.

I can't believe how DEAD it is in here!

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Deb-Sorry I did have you down as owning a box and Karen needing to choose one...I got up to early this morning.

Off to dig more flowers...my poor back is killing me. But I have to make the money while they are blooming. I guess I can rest this Winter. LOL

Shirley


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

WOW... you girls are burning up the internet wires!

Where is Karen, she needs to pick her box, dang it!

Ptilda, your post prompted me to go back and recount my picks, I have not picked box #1 which you have listed. I have most that's in it. You are correct though, it was sassy's box #12 that I was supposed to be picking, I'm not sure how I made that mistake, BUT I did. I was wondering why Deb said that about me wanting Sassys box and it changing.I dont know what I was thinking when I posted that shirleys box was gone!! It was supposed to be sassys box is now off the market!

Shirley, I'm so sorry. I dont know how I got you and sassy mixed up, I can only think it was due to lack of sleep. I don't say much about it but my boy is putting me through hell right now. I now have box#3 frozen and was supposed to have box#12. I like the contents of either so I will do whatever it is you would like me to. If it would be easier for you, you could even take me out of the swap. Again, I'm sorry everyone!

Lisa


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Hey Shirley why Don't we just kick that sleeping Lisa out the swap she just can't get her poop in a group.
Miss Lisa you hang tight it's gona be OK. I think it was you who said to me when I first join this group, that there are no mistakes here that we can't fix. Don't worry be happy we fisit, won't we miss Shirley?

Shirley, this is for you
Gardening is a matter of your enthusiasm holding up untill your back gets use to it. LOL Where do you sell your plants?


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Oh boy, Lisa, does that mean you didn't have box # 3 three times? Aren't you the one who is supposed to be counting box thievery for Annie? ROFLOL! Sit tight, Mama Shirley will fix it. (grinning like an idiot)

Worst case scenario is that Box 3 goes back into play and someone steals it from you. I'm not too worried that I didn't get to pick it when it was my turn, maybe someone else might want to pin you down and give you a spank though.

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

HEY TRACY don't cha mean idoit?

Hmmm, now then, I might actually have a CHANCE to get that box...hehe, nah, I am happy with box 1 I sure am, or 2 or,3 or 4, or 5, or 6, or oh HECK, who am I kidding? I'd just be happy with a box of plants no matter WHO it came from.

:) FANNA


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Tracy, I'm sitting here looking at the list and it's plain as day. I had box #5 and #12 two times each when it was my turn to pick! I think that when I shut one window and opened the other that I was thinking of the number that I couldn't pick and OWN it and picked that one.

Anyway, I'll wait and see what shirley has to say, I will do whatever needs to be done to fix it, even if it means I have to sit out for this month.


 o
Lisa

Aw, Lisa, I totally understand. You should have seen me trying to pick this morning since I can't take 12 or 4 from anyone since they were just taken from me by their current holders. I had to go back through all the threads to see if I was allowed to grab either because I couldn't remember if they were stolen in the mean time or who the people were that stole them from me!

I'm sure the box will just go back into play. You won't get grounded. I promise. Besides, Carmen and I have it all figured out...

 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Lisa, don't worry about it hun, its no big deal. We could always start from scratch. Everyone would have fun all over again and some of the girls that had to wait so long might be in the front lines then. lol But you're not sitting out.

Hugs (and I'm sorry your son is giving you a time, hope that gets better for you)

Sassy


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Ms. Lisa-Unless the others want you to return the box to play, leave it as is. That's what makes things interesting in life. Is it not the mess ups that we remember and laugh about for years to come. If everything went perfect what would we get to laugh about. The ladies ribbing you about it has got me in stitches. LOL

I love when a wedding does not go as planned, those are the videos they show on TV (Not the perfect ones but the ones with bloppers). LOVE EM

Alana-I sell at a local Farmers Market and also here at my home. Folks stop in all the time during bloom season. I also do Ebay for the higher priced daylilies. Locals will not pay what they are worth. You have to sell to someone who collects lots of daylilies.

Shirley


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Go Ahead girls, poke away! I'm so absent minded right now. I went through the threads again and Ptilda and I have just two that we don't agree upon. ! is my box #1 pick and the second is I either missed it or she added it.

Denise Have you had box #12????

Right now, this is how the boxes stand

#1-2
#2-2
#3-8
#4-4
#5-9
#6-2
#7-0
#8-1
#9-6
#10-1
#11-1
#12-8

I went with ptilda on the box #12 for Denise, I may have missed it. If it comes to be a tie, I will go back and check on Denise picking #12.

Alana, you are the leader as of this time! Sassy, is so very close behind!

Shirley, Thank you for not ringing my neck!

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Lisa, yes, Denise did have box 12 as she stole it from ME! That I do remember! LOL!

Shirley, If I were you I would have taken "Carmen" the snails idea. LOL!

NOW! Where is KAREN? I want to play! Kaaaaaaaaaaren! come out and play with us!

You know I picked her because she was supposed to check back in before she left. What a putz! (hands on hips)

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

HURAY SHIRLEY, I AGREE WITH SHIRLEY, kEEP THAT DARN BOX !!!

Next!!!!

I thinking of sellimg at the flea market but I work partime some wkends so I thinking maybe quit the job. I wish I new that I would make the same or more money.

Come on Lisa cheer up all is well, now you know how I felt when somebody hit me with the stupid stick. Did you feel like you got hit too? OUCH

HUGS HUGS HUGS Carmen


 o
Sorry, Ladies!

Didn't mean to be a party-pooper [*sniff*], just trying to make things easier [*lip quivering*] for everyone trying to figure out how to pick [*hiccup*].

Seriously, I agree, keep the box if it suits you. I'm enjoying the game no matter what.

Tracy, shame on you for making your box so pretty! I love that Wild Horses Daylily! Now I want someone to steal my beloved box #13, so I can pick another one & get a while to fantasize about just where I can put everything from THAT box! lol


 o
here we go again...

Uh Oh, another confused Petal Pusher is here.

Ptilda, dear, I hate to break it to you but I don't have Wild Horses. Boy would you be upset when my box arrived sans Wh! :o) Wasn't that Alana's?


 o
I meant Lisa!

I was reading & typing at the same time! Sorry!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Thank goodness all of that got straightened out while I wasn't looking! So should box 12 have been frozen at some point? Uh, never mind. I will just look at the updates and not try to read between the lines.
The older I get, the more easily I am confused.

 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Tracy, did you add wild horses daylily too? OR is Ptilda confusing my add ons with your box of goodies?

I'm going to poke around tomorrow and see what else I can add to my box for messing up the whole game. I hope I can find another item or two.

I did, I did, I found a division of summer pastels yarrow and some pink grapefruit yarrow that I just bought today that I can add to my box too and maybe a small division of echinacea "milkshake"!

I feel like such a heel!!!!!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Quit flogging yourself! Enough is enough my dear. You are fine. Like I said, it is mayhem to keep up with who had what and how often. Relax, quit adding to your box. It is perfectly wonderful and I will be happy to steal it from the maniac that tries to get it from me.

Are you listening Ptilda? hmmmm? No touchie, touchie the box I'm holding. Got it!?

Alana, we're making Lisa keep Shirleys box. No matter how hard we're pushing it on her she keeps trying to give us more plants. It is kind of funny.


 o
To answer your question...

No, I didn't add Wild Horses too. She was reading that you added it to your box and then checked to see who the sucker is that is holding it so she can make a play for it later. She is conniving. Just email me all your add ons so she stops ogling it. She is giving me a complex.

Ptilda, quit looking at me. Stop it!
MOM! make her stop looking at me and my box!!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Alana, I thought that what I was picking was box#12 but I was tired and cranky and put the wrong # box so I told Shirley that I would keep box 3 or 12 or I could just drop out because of the confusion that I was causing. Shirley says to just keep her box #3 and let the game continue....

Tracy, You hold on and hold tight....that wild horses was my wild card!!!

Lisa


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Thanks Lisa. Your succinct explanation penetrated the fog that passes for my brain.
No worries!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Miss Lisa I know why you picked #3 instead of #12.. You weren't thinking clearly- too busy yelling at me for stealing your box, LOL! I have an idea, since I have #12, why not give me #3 for it. I'll still be in the game and that would reopen box #3 for stealing. This is just an idea (please don't anyone get mad at me).

Hugs,
Deb

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Well, I see I've missed all the cheating that Lisa is doing! I would have taken that box had it not been marked as frozen!


 o
Just kidding!!

Lisa, you are too funny! Don't you even THINK about sitting out you goofball!!
Of course it's no big deal

I've been sleeping ALL day, not sure what is wrong with me now! I just feel blah and exhausted.

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Ok, I left yesterday came back today and we went through how many posts!!!.

Shirley, I have you down for some coneflowers.

Great pictures everyone, but how in the world do you put the name of the plant right on the pictures?

Someone mentioned a smart phone. I was thinking about getting a blackberry curve as I can upgrade next month. I know there are many phones out there to choose from but whichever kind I get I know will be able to visit more when I'm on the road, and I will like that!;O) :O)

Pat, is that wasp bite better today?

Lisa, No need to feel bad, and what can I do to make you feel better? hmmmm I'm confused, really confused and I'm not even playing this month. Please keep me informed as who I need to send the prize box to. LOL (it does not take much to confuse me these days).

I need to see what is happening on my annual iris swap. I might be back before I leave at 10p.m. If not, I will pop in for a few tomorrow.

Sassy, Kensie fix please!

Deb, your boston is very,very, handsome boy. I will need to share some pictures of ZSA and Kingston when they come for a visit.

Everyone else! Waving hello to you guys too!

You have mentioned being exhausted. Are you expecting a little Jamie or a Little Vic? LOLOLOL (I love babies!)AND I WANT TO BE A GRANDMA!!!!!!(SIGH)


 o
Annie

Hi Annie! You can add the names onto your pictures in the "edit" portion of photobucket. You should see it on the top left of each thumbnail in your photo album. Click on edit and it will bring you to a new screen where there are tabs at the top of the picture.

Click on the tab "Decorate" and you will see your picture with new options to choose from. Click on "Text", move the text box to where you want it on the photo. A "Text Options" box will be on the screen too. Click on Transparent, choose your font and color of text as well as size of font if you wish to customize it, it will automatically resize it to the text box if you don't want to mess around with that.

When you are happy with the text click on "Apply" in the "Text Options" box and then save it to your album.


 o
Vic

Oh, Annie could be onto something there. Are you? Hmmm? A little Vicky, that would be so sweet!

I hope you feel better, I hate that knocked down tired feeling. Like moving through mud. Blech.


 o
Annies offer

Alana, I'm glad I cleared it up for you!

Vic, go back to bed...lol

Deb, Thank you but it's already been decided by shirley that I will keep her box. I added a few plants to my box so that I wasn't getting the lions share of plants.

Annie, what can you do to make me feel better[sniffle,sniffle] well, you could just send me that prize box of plants.....lol or maybe you could come on over and kick some Derrick A@@! Thank you for asking but I added to my box and dont feel so bad anymore.

Alanas box is in the lead with 9 p[icks so far, sassy and Shirley are both at 8 picks each as of this moment.

Has anyone seen echinacea milkshake?, it's a new one around here.I bought one in a 1 gallon pot,it was $25, I hope it makes the winter for that price! I'm going to try and get a division off of it to add to my box,wish me luck!


 o
Milkshake Echinacea

Lisa, don't divide that! We've been talking on how some of the new echies haven't been very rugged. I divided my Raspberry Tart (gallon pot) last summer and sent a piece off to someone. It didn't come back for me this year. I would let it mature for a while. Just a thought.

 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Still nothing. huh.

PLEASE PICK A BOX KAREN. PRETTY PLEASE=)


 o
wow

Still nothing? I'm going to get ready for church. Will check in this afternoon.


 o
I propose...

...we enact a rule that says, after a certain time, if the person who's "up" doesn't select a box, the next person in line (Pat, in this case, I believe) be allowed to make a new selection and move their current box to the individual who didn't select within the time frame (Karen, in this case). Not picking on Karen, but its a long time to wait otherwise, and somewhat unfair to those who want to play the game.

Of course, I do realize that I might be villanized by saying this, but I know I'm only one of several thinking along these lines, so I'll stick my neck out! :)


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

It would be virtual impossible to implent a rule in that manner because the game is based on WHO steals from whom.
As it stands at this point Karen either needs to steal a box to keep the game going OR grab the last unspoken for box.

Something could have happened and she is unable to get online at the moment. Things do come up, this type of game could actaully take all month to play out it depends on who comes in and checks to see if it is their turns and how often they come in unfortunately.

So this being said we wait....

and HOPE those who are actually playing will be able to drop in more often to check the status of the game so those of us who are impatient will be able to get satisfaction LOL.

Shirley are you still planning on starting your game at 1:00?

If you don't mind once there is a winner I would like to post a trivia type game, maybe that will get us going again as well. Let me know if it is ok and I will start putting questions together.

:) Fran


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

I agree with Fran I don't think any of us are going to miss A flight to Paris or something. It's just a game.

Lets just play a game in the mean time to keep us busy while Karen comes back.

Everybody I hope you have a blessed Sunday :o) :o)


 o
Hey, I have no problem either way.

Just want to help avoid any frustration between players. I'd rather present a possible solution rather than be frustrated. But if everyone is cool the way it is, let's play on.

What's the game? I wanna win some Daylilies!

Will I go to hell for playing while I'm in church? lol


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

YES ptilda you will NOW put that phone down and listen to the preacher LOL....

oh wait I think church is over now, it is past 12:00 lol, so you can play on just NOT while you are driving home.

It is frustrating having to wait on other players BUT we knewn that when we signed up for the game, so we wait LOL.

hmmmm, I wonder where Shirley is I hope she is coming in the post her game I wanna play too, I REALLY liked that daylily she posted for the prize this time.
SHIRLEY would you PLEASE post the pic again? I want to drool some more.

:) Fran


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Fran, I'm with you and Carmen. I'm perfectly happy waiting for Karen.

Ptilda, recently I disappeared when I was supposed to post a game for everyone to play. I made a big build up to it, made sure everyone was looking forward to it and then got a phone call with an emergency that I needed to attend to immediately preceding the game. Ididn't post the game, everyone was wondering where in the heck I ran off to. I'm sure they were thinking it was an elaborate prank. I took some ribbing, rightly so. LOL! The girls were all great and understood my little absence. They made me feel good and a little less guilty with their understanding. The next day we played and all was good.

Girls, I won't be around for most of the rest of today. I have a family party to go to this afternoon. This one tends to be a bit of a wild one and we'll be out pretty late. Word of advice...

Don't steal my box, Karen! LOL!


 o
I'm on central time...

So its not 12 yet. :)


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Didn't Karen give us a heads up that she might have trouble getting online while visiting her folks or am I confused again?
At any rate, waiting is no big deal. Something could happen to any one of us that could delay our checking in.

Having said that, if she knows what's good for her, she will stay away from box 6!

oh yeah Time zone

OH well, I keep forgetting the TIME zone thing lol.

Gonna look pretty bad when you get caught playing online in CHURCH lady! hehe

OH YES Tracy, I remember that hehe....A pretty wild party huh? Never been to one of those, I am so deprived.

Ok well, I hope folks start filtering in soon. I am ready to DO something hehe.

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

I just came in from planting to see if Karen came back yet, I'm glad I did! I forgot about the game today.

Ptilda, even if I didn't have my box frozen, I too would want to wait for Karen. Life happens!

Shirley, let's play or am I now banned for being an airhead.

Lisa


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Alana, you aren't confused, Karen did say she would have a hard time to check in. Truth be told it is all my fault since I stole her box. I thought she still had time to check in before she had to leave. :O( Always the trouble maker.

Fran, yes, this one gets a bit crazy, hubby's cousin has a full bar in his game room with several different beers on tap. Last time the evening ended with fireworks and a corn cob throwing contest. The men were all lit up like chritmas trees and they were seeing who could throw their cob the furthest past the in ground pool. Needless to say, there were a substantial number that ended up in the pool. Once again, I will be the designated driver. :O)


 o
so now what we doing

hmmmm, maybe Shirley forgot she was going to post the game today.

SO NOW what? LOL

Denise welcome home, how was your trip?

Tracy, I hope you enjoy yourself at the party.

:) Fran


 o
Funny how life works...

The very people who expressed their frustration in the game being halted, are the ones now defending the existing process! lol

You should realize, I don't care either way whether we move on, but some of you DO care, but would rather complain than find a solution. I offered a solution ONLY for the sake of those who were frustrated. Guess you had a change of heart overnight.


 o
RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

It isn't a matter of complaining, it is how this game goes. There is not real solution other then waiting on the person whose turn it is.

It isn't Karen's fault that her box was stolen, she also stated that she would be away, but her box was stolen from her knowing this SO she can't be faulted or passed over because the rest of us wish to play nor can the game continue without her because let's say we decided based on the fact that no fault of her's we pass over her.
WELL that effects ME because I am in pocession of her box, so that means I wouldn't have a box so would that therefore NOW make it my turn because I would be boxless?

Not fair to Karen OR me to do that, the only fair thing to do IS wait. No matter how frustrating it is to be waiting that is all we can do unless the game is completely discontinued all together and Shirley decided to pair us up based on who joined. THEN there would have been no point in posting the contents..... it is just how this game is played, whether we like it or not the fact IS when we signed up for this swap we knew what the game was.
It just seems to go better in the other groups because I guess more people are able to be online more often in those groups....

:( Fran


 o
swap

Ptilda, we were all joking around passing the time. Glad that you don't care one way or the other. No one is truly frustrated, just gentle/not so gentle teasing. We can be a rowdy bunch but it is all in good fun.


 o
Fran

Fran, I had a nice visit with my family. I wanted to go to a favorite nursery but didn't get a chance. I'm usually there for at least an hour when I go there. Maybe next time.

I love the tomatoe soup echinacea you have in your box. Where did you get that one?

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Ptilda, There really was no need for that comment. I think you got your panties in a bunch over nothing! LOL

The petal pushers are a friendly group of ladies who love to rib each other, noone really means any harm! I know I get anxious to pick a box but certainly wouldn't have wanted someone to be skipped over,the ribbing of Karen is all in fun.

Speaking of ribbing, where the heck is our hostess. She promised a game ,da@# it and then decided to go out and play instead.

I need to get back out and plant some more, I'll check back in a bit.

I knew that, I was thinking of the picture on the front of the parks catalogue. It has the tomatoe soup echinacea. I like the mac and cheese too. I have the pink double delight it is blooming now. It is so pretty.

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

My panties are certainly not in a bunch. As I've stated multiple times, I threw out a solution. It was deemed unnecessary, and that's perfectly fine with me. Quite honestly, I'm not sure why it's still being discussed.

Are we playing a game or something?

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

HEY TRACY!!
I been thinking about the box I sent in June, how are those babies doing? Of the things I got from Pat I lost 2, but the others that she sent are making up for it ,they are doing great.

Silly me I ordered 10 beautiful hostas, hopefully I can trade some in our Aug. swap, we do have another one in Aug. right?
Check me out I'm not even finish this one and I'm already looking forward to the next one.LOL

Hey ya'll I hope everybody is having a great Sundayyyyyy:o)

Ptilda, you wrote:
"You should realize, I don't care either way whether we move on, but some of you DO care, but would rather complain than find a solution. I offered a solution ONLY for the sake of those who were frustrated. Guess you had a change of heart overnight."

Your panties seem a little bunched to me as well. I re-read most of last evening's posts and see no mention of any cranky people posting impatience in waiting for Karen to come by.

I think it is time to drop the subject because what will undoubtedly happen when Karen does come back is that she will have hurt feelings. She is one of the sweetest most caring individuals and deserves our patience and understanding as is our custom here.

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

I will have to miss the game. I am going to a matinee this afternoon.
ptilda, everything is copacetic. When I whine, I am usually just picking at folks. If I am honestly aggravated, there is absolutely no humor involved.
Have fun everyone!

Carmen

Carmen, all of your plants are doing fantastic here! I am amazed at how quickly they have thrown off new growth. The twisted arrows is happily throwing off new shoots as are all the sedums. I have been enjoying blooms from your rain lilies every few days. I finally snagged a picture of one last night that I need to upload for you to see tomorrow. The only sad one is the begonia that I have potted up, it got a touch too much water with all the rain we had. It is now sheltered from the rain and developing new growth. Looking much happier now.


 o
matinee

Alana, have a good time this afternoon. What movie are you going to see?

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

IF I HAVE TO STOP THIS CAR!!!!

Heading for bed, I'm tired and sad. Sis called me last night and they had to take their cat( Brit Brit) to the vet around 9p.m. and put her to sleep. She was 24, lived a great life but was time to say goodbye to her.

I will try and post more before I leave again tonight.

Waving to everyone!

LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie

Mama Annie,

I'll be good from now on...I promise! Please don't tell Dad!

RE: I love those begonias

Yea those begonias are finiky about wet feet, they like it a little on the 'just moist' side.
I have a begonia that I brought from the ilands, it has HUGE leaves some are over 15" wide and the flowers are gorgous the only bad thing is that I don't know who she is.
any way I'll post some pics soon. I love begonias. Im glad you are enjoying the rain lilies, my yellow and white have not done a thing for, but oh that pink she always explodes with blooms.

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

I'm Back! I'm reallllly sorry! :( I didn't mean to keep everyone waiting. Let me go back and check the boxes. I feel so bad!

I choose....

Running away with box #5

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

Annie, I'm sorry for your sister's loss. It is so sad to lose part of our pet family. Hugs! I hope you have a good rest.

Carmen, that is what I figured. I thought I had it tucked back enough on the patio to shelter it but was soooo wrong! Of course, the monsoons that we had were a little tough to hide from. I should have brought it in the house.

I would love to see some pics of your giant begonia! The pink RL is who I have a picture of. You should know they must behave here as they do at home since that is the one who has bloomed most here too. LOL!

So Lisa, what else did you buy at the nursery? Hmmmm? Anything I might want to pinch from your yard when I sneak over next time? :O)

My Apologies

I've gone and caught up with the thread and see I've caused a little trouble. I haven't gone back to the previous thread, but thought I had wrote that I wouldn't be back For most of the day and all of last evening. Things didn't go as I thought and I never got to check in around supper time, like I had hoped. My hubby is on the fire dept. and every year they host a Firemans Appreciation day, with activities throughout the day. I didn't get home until 2am last night and went straight to bed. This morning I slept in, and then got busy with chores and feeding people and completely forgot to check in, and for this I am truely sorry! Please no one be mad at Priscilla, or at each other. (..or at me...) I know it gets hard waiting, and I've made everyone wait for a long time.

Can we get back to having fun??? I'm giving you all my best puppy eyes right now!

Karen


 o
Yeah!

Annie, tell your sister I'm very sorry about her kitty. I hate loosing a pet!

Karen, I wasn't frustrated in the least about you not being here. Simply addressing the concerns that were expressed. No one was mad, just getting impatient & I think we're all a little greedy, especially when those amazing photos keep getting posted! :)

BTW, I thought someone said something about a little afternoon game of some sorts (trivia or something)? Or am I just dreaming?

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

I'll keep track of who has what & how many times they've had it, if someone else wants to keep track of how many times each box was stolen, 'cause I don't have those numbers up-to-date.

RE: UPDATE: Petal Pushers July White Elephant Swap #5

lists & such...

Does anyone care if we go with the numbers as I have them on my list now & don't worry if they are off one or two numbers (I know mine are right, 'cause I've only picked 2x & I think everyone else's are too)? I'll do the times each box has been picked based on the last list of it's kind, 'cause I'm NOT gonna go back & count them all! :)


 o
Funny how life works...

The very people who expressed their frustration in the game being halted, are the ones now defending the existing process! lol

You should realize, I don't care either way whether we move on, but some of you DO care, but would rather complain than find a solution. I offered a solution ONLY for the sake of those who were frustrated. Guess you had a change of heart overnight.
