Kym, if you'd like, I can make sure the addresses for the kids this month go out to everyone. I'll need them sent to me first though, okay? Let me know if you'd like me to babysit the swap while you take a 2-week break. In the meantime, I'll be hitting the cookbooks, trying to decide what kind of cake to bake for those 3 ladies...


 o
RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Theresa

RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

I knew you'd all like it! I wanted to "dress up" a little, but I had to get the cake done too, so I thought I'd combine the two! LOL! But tell me, do you think I used too much make-up?

Too much EVERYTHING!LMAO

Theresa

RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Okay, I went back into the kitchen and baked another cake. I think you all will like this one a little bit better. Each layer is a different flavor, so you'll just have to sample each one. Can you handle it? LOL!

I received two more wonderful birthday wishes today in the mail.

JJ (shropshire_lad) sent Common Milkweed, Hollyhock, Asters Tiger Paws Mix, and Auntie's Rose. These are fantastic, thank you so much. I had my first success at growing roses from seed this year, so I can't wait to try these. And I really love Hollyhock.

divaheather, Heather, sent such a surprise - a small plant of Coffea Arabica WOW! Wow! WOW! and a bareroot of White Trillium. This is something I have really wanted. You are something else! I am so happy to have you as a garden friend. And when I brew those first coffee beans, I hope you'll join me for a cup.

RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Hi everyone,

sorry I haven't posted my list until now. My day has been in the hospital/ sub-acute rehab since mid June and everything has been kind of nuts. I am behind in sending my birthday cards out and was going to withdraw from the swap, but I am going to stick it out. I still have some July/Dec birthday wishes to send, so please forgive my tardiness.

Anyway, about me... My name is Amy and I will be turning 40 on the 21st. I am married for eight years. No kids, but I have three kitties who are my babies. I live in Queens, NY, and have lived in NYC all my life. I am a Physician Assistant and I work for the NYC Medical Examiner's Office, where I do death investigations. It is a very interesting job. I enjoy nature and photography, as well as gardening. I love to take pictures. I have planted a garden at my job which is coming along nicely, and people seem to like it.I enjoy working on it and it makes me feel good to do something cheerful to make grieving people feel a little better...
My Wishlist:

Tanacetum niveum "Jackpot"
Agastache "Acapulco Rose"
Dianthus "Spooky"
Silene "Jack Flash"
Himalayan Poppy
Helenium
Laurentia
Leopard Bane
Masterwort
Star of Persia
Nodding Onion
Coreopsis "Limerick Dreams"
Poppies, esp Danish Flag, Flemish Antique,Lauren's Grape, Drama Queen,Tibetan, Hens and Chicks, Royal Wedding, Beauty of Livermore, Mother of Pearl
White Liatris
Anything suitable for Xeriscaping
Any of your faves, I love everything!

I wish a happy birthday to August babies. Thanks everyone for being so thoughtful. and thanks to Dan for the awesome cakes, especially the first one.

Amy

RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Amy!!! Hey, good to see you!

Micrey and Colcol, let me know if you don't get those addresses. I sent them out a couple of seconds ago...

Hi Dan,

Can you email the August addy's to me.

Thank you

Margarita10, let me know if they get through to you. I just sent them out.

RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Dan
Been meaning to ask you.
Did you ever find any of the animals plant ties?
Just checking.
Dorothy


 o
RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Tks u, Dan, got the addy's. I check my spam box about once a week, and Kyms email was in there with the addy's as well! Sorry kym. I should know better. For some reason her emails always go to my spam box. So, I'm set for Aug and the month isn't even half over !!!

Morguegirl, I say "kiddos" to you for sticking out the swap. Not the easy decision with hectic life.
Hope it will be a fun month for you.


 o
RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Dorothy, if you're talking about the bendable ties in the shapes of frogs, grasshoppers, and lizards, then yes, I found them. In fact, after getting that first one in the shape of a lizard, finding them became sort of a "mission" for me for awhile. Some are currently helping out in the tomato patch, while others are on the grape vines, and there are 3 lizards on my porch railing where they've been all summer long! They make great decorations!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Dorothy, here's a picture of those lizards on my porch railing. I originally put them there as a temporary place to keep them, but liked them so much there that they've become a permanent (for the summer anyway) decoration! LOL!
guess who's coming to visit!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Hi Dorothy,

Thank you for thinking about me...it was a lovely surprise to receive your card for my June birthday...
I will definitely try the red leaf spinach. I grow some Oriental veggies every summer so these will be added to my garden.

Wishing the August babies a very happy birthday! May your mailboxes be filled with cards, and may you have your fill of cake and ice cream.

RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Hello Everyone!
I thought I'd drop by and invite you all to come check out a perennial exchange I'm hosting this month. It's a good time to clean out your gardens, get rid of extras, and try out some new plants. I've got the link below, and hope to see you soon!
Have a great day!

 o
RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Good Morning all,

Amy (morguegirl), I'm glad that you liked what I had to share. I just gathered most of those from my own garden. I think you may want to let the non commercials dry out a bit more. I have been told that Angelica is best when sown fresh. Happy growing!!!

Lisa

RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Hello B-day buddies!!!!

First I want to say I'M SO SORRY for being MIA the last two months!!! We had a family tragedy mid June and that month is very much a blur for me right now. Also my 5 year old started Kindergarten in July so that's also a bit traumatic for me since he's always been with me everyday since he was born. But I'm starting to get used to it and so here I am again :0)

I want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the JUNE, JULY AND AUGUST babies!!!!! (again sorry is so late)

I have been harvesting seeds this last month so I have many things to share! I promise to get all of your b-day cards out this month :0)

Monica


 o
RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

I received a birthday card with Red Poppies,Desert Rose and a cute holographic flower sticker!Thank you so much, Chellflower! What a great birthmonth I'm having! So much better than a birthday!LOL

Monica, so sorry to hear about everything that's been going on in your life! Hope everyday gets better for you! Glad you're back & thank you for the well wishes!

RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Well, I'm sure glad to know that I'm not the only one who's sending very belated birthday seeds! I really am sorry for always being so late. If I start planning now for next year, maybe then I won't be late. :-(

I sent out June & July today. I will be working on August, so HOPEFULLY it'll be in the mail soon as well. I even lost my birthday cards I bought just for you guys, so until I find them, I'm just writing a few notes. Before long (maybe for August), I'll probably go ahead and let the kids make some more cards. :-)

Also, I see there's 2 birthday buddies this month (with lists posted), so I didn't end up updating the August birthday page. I think we can keep up with 2 people without a page listing them, right? (LOL) I'll do September as usual if we have 3 or more posters. If someone really wants me to put the page up with just a couple people on it, let me know, okay? I really do think they're convenient myself, but just wasn't sure if they're needed for less than 3 people in a month.

Happy Birthday to our August birthday buddies!!!!!

Blessings,
Angela


 o
RE: UPDATE: Birthday Extravaganza Birthday Buddies for August

Angela, I'm with you. I think we can keep up with the two August kids pretty well. And, like you, I'm still working on getting the August cards out. Kym's gonna kick my butt when she gets back...
