Petal Pushers


~HOW THE GAME WILL BE PLAYED
~When you choose a box please use the box number (#)
~There will be 3 (three) rounds or whenever the last box has been chosen, which ever comes first:
*The first person, #1, chooses a box.
*The second person, #2, either chooses a box or steals
#1's box. (If #1's box is stolen they get to choose
again but they can not steal the box back.)
*The third person, #3, chooses a box or steals a box.
*The game will continue this way until the last person has chosen.
EXCEPTIONS-You may not steal back a box from the person who stole it from you.
You may steal that same box if someone else steals it from the person who stole it from you.
Once a box has been possessed by one player 3 (three) times it becomes frozen for the remainder of the game.
If anyone has questions please don't hesitate to ask...I'm new at this myself.

THE REST OF THE RULES
1. Your box must be mailed out no later than 7 days after the game is finished.
2. Boxes must be mailed Priority with a Delivery Confirmation #.
3. You must post the Delivery Confirmation # when you sent your box.
4. If you are new to Petal Pushers you must send your box first.
5. All GW rules apply.
6. You may NOT swap out/or exchange any of the 5 plants you listed as the contents of your box. If there is a serious problem contact me.
7. We all need to check the thread out daily to see when our turn comes up. If anyone is absent for 3 days in a row we'll have to continue without you. You can then choose when your turn comes up again.

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

I had a nice weekend:) I just got back from Longwood Gardens. It was a beautiful day with perfect weather. My camera died about 15 minutes after we got there.

I hope everyone else has a nice holiday too.

Denise

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

I had an great week end I worked like a mad woman in my garden
I hope you all had a great weekend.

Deise, when I lived in New Jersey, Longwood Gardens was one of my favorite places to visit,at least twice in season
I love that place haven't been for years.

Ok Lainey, lets get this party started in here...It was too lonely over the wkend.

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Hi, Ladies-I've had a good weekend so far except for not feeling too well. Hope I am better tomorrow for I have lots I want to accomplish this week. The weather has been beautiful & just right to work outside. The weeds have almost taken over now with all of our rain so I am waiting for the 1st hard freeze to take care of them. Then I can see what needs done to all my beds!

Mariann-Your picture of your sister is just gorgeous. What a talented lady you are. I know the whole family is good lookimg so why not post your picture here so we can see the resemlence with your sister. She is so lovely. Does she have your talents? I'd love to know more about her!

I wonder how much longer this swap will go on? I know one thing-at the next one I am sure not going to wait so long to sign up! It's too long a wait watching all of you ahead having all the fun selecting & stealing boxes so many times. I am glad I am not feeling too well or I would have to get out my shoes. Right now the lamb slippers feel so good & comfortable. Have a great week, all. Blessing, Margaret

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Hi everyone, I had a nice weekend too. Yesterday we took a long drive up to one of my favorite towns on Lake Erie. It's called Vermilion, we used to vacation up there when I was a little girl each summer. The town is just as it was when I was younger. There is a wonderful museum there that features all the ship wrecks that have happened on the lake and has lighthouses, parts of ships, models of the tankers and ore ships that travel the lake. The boys all loved it there. They got to man the helm of an old tug and see how the inside of the light works in the lighthouse as well as all the different types of lighting that have been used over the years.

We stopped at the beach for a little bit and watched the sailboats on the water. The kids played in the sand and Jack collected rocks for my rock garden.

We went to dinner at one of the Mom and Pop diners there. Best burgers and fries we ever ate. The owner fussed over us and made the kids feel very special. It was a very nice time.

Today was pretty quiet, just hung around the house and did some work outside. Made a chocolate bundt cake for dessert and the kids were pretty happy with that. :O)

Margaret, I wish you weren't feeling sick. I hope you have a quick recovery and are up to your old tricks by tomorrow.

Mariann, I'm going to have to check into photoshop. I love the fun things that you do with your sigs and gifs. You are a lucky family to have such good looks. I didn't know your sis has MS. My best friend is a restorative nurse at a facility that specializes with MS patient care. She loves her patients and speaks of each of them with such fondness.

Denise, I am bummed that your camera quit on you. I have had that happen many times during preschool graduations, Christmas plays and other important functions. I now carry a back up set for whenever I bring the camera case with me. They ran out on Sunday when we were at the museum, I was so happy to have the spares! :O)

Carmen, good going on the yard work! I bet it is looking fabulous! Now, come here and help me pull weeds tomorrow. OK? LOL!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Tracy, I would come help pull them there weeds but Pat won't loan me that convertable of hers so I can go in style
You do remember the one right??? was it Pat or Lisa Oh well
neither of them will loan me tha darm thing SOOO sorry can't help. hehe Sounds like you had a great time, way to go!!!

Margaret hurry up and get well so we can get this show on the road.

Everybody else A BIG HELLO to ya

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Hello everyone!

Glad to hear everyone had a good Labor Day week-end! Margaret, hope you're feeling better! There are colds going around here. So far just my daughter has come down with one. We spent the day at my folks here in town. Played some cards, cooked out, it was fun! Spent the evening cleaning and getting the kids' things ready for their first day of school. I forgot to buy Kleenex for them. My youngest needs to bring 2 boxes, and the middle son needs 1 large box. Tomorrow morning will be hectic, but I am soooo ready for school to start!!

I best get myself to bed, really need all the beauty sleep I can get!

Talk to y'all in the morning!
Karen

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Oh...Lainey.....Where are you....?

Carmen, Longwood Gardens is one of my favorite places to go too. I try to go at least once a year.

Tracy, I did have a backup. I used my new quickfire cell phone camera. It actually has more megapixels than my old camera. But I need a special card insert to retrieve the pictures. I bought one last night off of ebay. So I will still have all the pictures. I'm sure the quality won't be as good as my regular camera since it has more megapixels but that's o.k.


 o
RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Denise-I love Longwood Gardens! I've been there every season. Christmas is absolutely beautiful too. The trees outside are all decorated and inside they have quite a few Christmas Trees too. Haven't been there in a few years. I would really be upset if my camera quit. I was going to ask you to post some pictures.

Carmen-Where in NJ did you live?

Margaret-Hope you feel better soon. I haven't had my picture taken in years. The only picture I have is one taken in 1997 at my High School Reunion. I'll post that picture if the other ladies here will post one too. My little sister lives in Tucson, AZ. As I said she has MS. I did forward the Tag to her boyfriend. Her computer monitor isn't working. Unfortunately she doesn't use half the talent she has.

Tracy-Sounds like you had a wonderful day yesterday. I bet the kids had a ball.
You'd be using Paint Shop Pro to do the graphics. I don't think Photoshop can do the same things. I'm looking forward to getting into animations. Those are done using Animation Shop. I was able to download both programs for free with the group I'm in.

Karen-I use to Substitute Teach at 2 high schools in my area. The one thing I noticed is that all the teachers had boxes of tissues on their desks. I used the antibacterial lotion a lot!

I wish all you gals could come over and help me with my gardening! I finally got my Echinaceas planted. Now I have to work on getting beds ready for DL's that I dug up...plus a bunch of shade plants. Our soil is horrible and I don't have a rototiller. Renting one is to expensive.

Lainey...where are you????
Hugs to all
Mariann

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

I hope you all had a nice holiday.

Lainey


 o
RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Mariann, Just smack me on the head, please? I am a dolt, can't believe I typed photoshop. I need to pay more attention. The animiations are so neat, I don't know if I could ever do them. How cool that you got the programs for free.

Karen, we have a lot of sniffling and sneezing going on here too. I think it is just allergies for us though. We've been going through tissue like crazy.

Denise, awesome that you had your camera phone too. You will have to tell me about the card to retrieve pics. I have to email my pics from the phone to photobucket in order to retrieve them. Picture messaging is expensive!!! If there is a card that I could use instead then that would be great.

Carmen, let me talk to Pat for you. I am sure she would love to let her use the convertible. (so excited! Carmen might come over to play!)

Lainey, welcome home! How are you feeling? A whole lot better I hope. :O)

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Mariann, thank you for hosting this month! :0) I had a lot of fun!

Margaret & Pat, I'll be sending you both an email this afternoon!

We're having a rainy day here. My poor pup has to stay in her travel kennel in the garage because we don't have her dog house ready yet. Should have known it would do something like rain on the first day of school. Other wise my boys could play with her & keep her company in hubby's 'mancave'. lol. My other very naughty dog ran off when I was letting her out. I had the puppy and thought they could play together inside the fence, since it was just sprinkling out. So she's out roaming the neighborhood. I'm sure being a Beagle, she is getting a nose full. She will come home wet and dirty and tongue hanging. (she's very out of shape)

Be back later!

Tracy, I had to get a SanDisk 8GB microSD HC Memory Card with SD adapter for my Quickfire cell phone. I don't know which type you would need for your phone. You would have to check it out on line or in your owners maual.

Lisa, I will try to get your box out tomorrow. I was wondering if you were interested in a Buddleia 'Miss Ruby'. It is a dwarf type that only reaches about 4 ft. I love it because it doesn't take over.

Denise

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Miss Ruby

Denise,

I just looked up Miss ruby and I would love to have it here in my garden if you have a piece to spare. Thank you for offering. I'm working on redoing a sunny garden in the front of the house, it can be my focal point in the center!

I wasn't thinking about what two puppies would do to my gardens when I got them, they completely ruined one of my sunny areas and I have to buy all new plants for that side. I'm thankful for the electric fence,it's keeping them out of my other gardens!

Lisa

PS; I did send you an email earlier today. please let me know if you don't get it.

Hello everyone. I think I am doing the October Swap unless someone who was previously scheduled to hostess shows up. If it is me, I already have a theme for a simple but fun swap in mind and I would like to post it next weekend so that everyone has plenty of time to receive a Halloween Box before the holiday.
Tracy, I am sorry I have not mailed your box yet. I have been working like crazy the last couple of weeks so that I can have next week free. I will get it out to you by Monday at the latest. I hope your arm is better. Burns are such painful injuries!

Shirley I emailed you through GW a couple of days ago. Please let me know if you did not get it. I may be in your spam folder.

Have a good weekend, everyone. Alana

Alana, did you want to seeds to the malva????

Yes, Lisa. I'm sorry. I thought I emailed you. I will do it now.

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Good Morning all! Alana, please take your time sending the box out. I have been swamped here too with all the school meetings, open houses, paper work, and shopping for school supplies that the kids came home telling me "oh, and I need to get this stuff now too". It has been nuts!!!!

I'm in the same boat, I had planned on getting my box out to Sue on Wednesday and had to push it off till Monday next week. I feel guilty but she is very sweet and understands.

My wrist is much better now and I am able to type comfortably again. I still can't believe I burned it like that. You'd think I hadn't been cooking very long with a silly mistake like that. Duh!

I did want to tell you that I spoke with Sassy and we are both excited to have you host for October. The other person hasn't made an appearance so it is safe for you to post whenever you are ready. I can't tell you how excited I am for your swap. I'm nearly giddy!

Hugs to all!

Hi, Ladies-I want to let you know, Becky, that I have to pick up some exta plants & can't get until tomorrow. I will try & get them mailed tomorrow but will probably be Monday now. Sorry!

Sounds like boxes are flying out. I know everyone will be greatly happy & satisfied with the plants they receive. What a great group of ladies we are! Blessings, Margaret

Carmen-I think Vineland is south of me. We've mulled over moving to FL but neither my DH nor I could take the heat.

I did hear from Lainey...she's been ill. Sending out warm thoughts and best wishes to her.

Is anyone else having difficulty getting their boxes out??? Just post here and keep in touch with your partner.
Have a great day

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Good morning!

Margaret, I will shipping your box out on Monday. It has rained a couple of times this week, and so everything should have gotten a good drink!

This morning is our (my son and I) last Saturday morn. to do his paper route. It was never suppose to be a 'we' or 'our' thing, but thats how it ended up, grrrr. Monday he will show the boy taking over for him the route, and then we are all done with it. It will be soooooo nice not to have to fight over this any more.

Have a great day all!
Karen

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Karen, I am so happy for you that the route is over! Congratulations! I know how aggravated you've been with the whole thing. Enjoy having some of your free time back.

Mariann, I'm having trouble keeping myself organized. I've been running here and there and everywhere and feel like a chicken with it's head cut off. Could you come over here and kick me in the pants? That should straighten me out. I'm getting my box together tomorrow for mailing on Monday.

Lainey, I hope you are feeling better. You get some rest!

My daughter had her first day of preschool on Thursday. She loved every minute of it. She has been chomping at the bit to go to school like the big guys do and FINALLY she gets to go. She's my last little one to start.

Hugs to all!

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Hello everyone,

I feel like an idiot. This was my first round robin and I never stopped to think about it or I would have figured it out. That is, that when the last box is picked, the game is over. Can you believe, I didn't know that? I was as shocked as everyone else when the game was declared over. I just knew there was a perfectly wonderful box of goodies sitting there, and no one had selected it. So I took it. DUH!!!! Sorry I brought the game to a sudden conclusion.
I'll know better next time.

Some of you have contacted me to ask how I am doing. I'm getting a little better each day. It takes a long time for blood clots to dissolve since my blood is "thick as glue" according to my Dr. I've been through this several times and I've learned that it's best to just rest and let them dissolve. Every time I get in a hurry and hop up and start doing things, I make new ones. This is a real test of my patience, since I have very little to begin with.

The Round Robin was fun and I thank you all for letting me participate. I don't know how you keep track of all those exchanges, I was getting dizzy just trying to keep it all straight. I finally gave up. It's a good thing Tracy and Mariann and the rest of you knew what to do. This too will be made clear as I get more experience.

Best wishes to you all,

Lainey


 o
RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Lainey,
No need to feel "idiotic". That is part of the charm of a White Elephant Swap. The outcome may seem predictable, but it seldom turns out that way.
I hope you feel better soon.
Tracy is that your baby going off to preschool? If it is you seem awfully calm.
I will post the new swap sometime next week.
Take care folks,
Alana


 o
RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Lainey, White Elephants are crazy. Sudden spurts of thieving followed by short lulls, then off to boxes flitting from one set of hands to another and then sudden stops is what they are all about. I think they're a lot like riding bumper cars. LOL! Whiplash is always possible. Don't feel bad for taking Becky's awesome box. It was hard for me to leave it alone, I'm glad it went to you. :O)

Now, you behave yourself and try not to do too much. It is hard to sit still and take it easy. Take care of yourself, that is an order! LOL!

Alana, yes, Emma is my baby and I am trying desperately not to get too mushy about it. She is making it easy though because she is so ready to be there. She is very excited and happy to go. She is off for a 3 day weekend and keeps asking if she can go back tomorrow. She has told us every detail of what she did on her first day and showed us all her papers. I am laughing because all she wants to do at home is write notes to us, color in her books and work in her little kindergarten workbook that we have for her. With enthusiasm like that, I can't keep from being happy for her.

I can't wait to see what you have planned for us. (Giddy smile!)

Hi! I've been working outside all morning but had to come in and brag to everyone about the wonderful box Shirley sent me! I received huge, healthy starts of:

Tiarella-Black Snowflake
Tiarella-Pink Brushes
Astible-Fanal
Helleborus-Winter Jewels-Amber Gem
Hosta-Blue Mouse Ears
AND
Daylily 'Beautiful Edgings' - I've wanted this for a long time.
Aruim Italicum - The color on this is amazing!
Calla Lily 'Green Goddess' - Another plant that I'm sure to treasure!

I can tell that Shirley looked at my list and tried to pick some things that she knew I'd love. I do! Thanks so much, Shirley! You outdid yourself!

Lainey - I'm sorry to hear that your health is suffering. I hope you'll be back up and around soon.

Don't feel bad about ending the game. What everyone before me said is true. In this type of swap you never know what's going to happen! Becky's box was terrific! No wonder you grabbed it up. LOL! I bet you spent a long time wondering what was wrong with the rest of us that we didn't appreciate such a nice package. (Truly, don't feel bad. Most of the people playing are pretty new to this game too.)

Tracy - I saw where someone mentioned you burning yourself but even when I scrolled back up, I didn't see your explanation. (Old, tired eyes; I'm sure!) I hope you're doing better now.

Sweet little Emma going off to school. Aaawww! I know it's sad but like you said, she's so excited! (Plus that bit of extra time alone will be appreciated as soon as you adjust.) Now if only you could get Ed to go out more! LOL! (We're supposed to have pretty weather through Wed. Chuck's already talking about taking off Tue & Wed. (smile))

Karen - I haven't forgotten your package. I'm planning to mail on Monday. As we talked a few days ago, I'll be tucking in some tiny starts of new Heuchera varieties for you too. AND, (I almost overlooked this) daylily 'Blueberry Sundae'. Yay! I know you want that one.

I know the paper route has been a sore point but I'm sure it's been a good thing to help teach your son responsibility for his commitments.

Mariann - This was a fun game. Thank you for hostessing this month.

Alana- Like Tracy, I can't wait to see what you have planned for Oct. Halloween is my favorite holiday! Oh, wait. Did you actually say it would have to do with Halloween or did I just infer that?

Well, DH is outside wondering where I disappeared to. We started the process of changing our siding and windows this morning. We're going to do it a section at a time so that winter doesn't sneak up and catch us exposed! Hopefully, by the end of next weekend we'll have the shingles and the new LR window installed. Then we'll be moving on to building/pouring a new front porch and building the stone enclosure for the new entry. We're not looking forward to the work but we're both excited about the change!

To everyone that I didn't speak to directly, "Hi! I hope you are having a great weekend."

Pat

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Tracy-I'm not sure I could lift my leg up high enough to kick your bum...however I might be able to manage your ankles.LOL Oh little Emma starting preschool. A life changing event for both of you!

Lainey-LOL I'm glad I had Tracy to keep me straight with this game. You wouldn't believe how many times I emailed her with questions. Pat also hand a hand in getting me on the right path. Don't rush yourself to get better. Warm thoughts are still coming your way. I'm glad you had your first RR with us! I still remember my first one. I was actually in shock that the game ended so quickly. When I went to do the counts everyone had a box.

Pat-Thanks again for your help in this months RR swap. What a wonderful box you received from Shirley!

Everyone has until next week to get their boxes out. If you can't or are having an issue with your box let me and your partner know. Life does happen!

Have a great day...errrr it's rainy and chilly and has been for the last 2-3 days. Sun and warmth tomorrow according to the weather station.

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Pat, I mentioned my little accident to Alana in an email last week. I told her I wouldn't be posting on the thread because I had burned the underside of my wrist on the handle of one of my pans when I was getting dinner ready that night.

It's my second burn with that pan in a few weeks. I don't normally use this one in the oven but did when I made a roast chicken. It has one of those hollow metal handles that cools itself on the stove top so is safe to handle. I'm not used to it being flaming hot from the oven and was careless. I reached over the handle and was cutting up butter and sliced down, laid my wrist right across the handle and it didn't click in my brain right away that I was cooking myself. lol. Anyway, it made it quite uncomfortable to type since the keyboard lays right under that part of my wrist. (I know, BIG BABY!) LOL!

You should have seen how aggravated I was when Ed was home for my first day of alone time. I couldn't believe it! He must think I want to be alone with him or something. LOL! Emma is hillarious. She was so excited about what her outfit would be and making sure she looked just right for her big day. I took some pics, I'll have to send them to you.

Mariann, I bet you could reach my hiney if you tried really hard! LOL! Please don't kick my ankles, there's not nearly the amount of padding there that I have on my backside. :O)


 o
RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Yeah..... I got my box today. It included the following:

Heuchera Lime Ricky
Heuchera Marmalade
Tiarella Pink Skyrockets
Hosta June
Lady in Red Fern

and a lavender pair of jersy garden gloves:)

Thank you Mariann. I love my new plants.

Lainey, please take it easy. Especially in the morning when getting out of bed. That is when many clots break free.

Tracy, I'm glad your daughter is making it easy on you. I can see if she is so happy about it, how could you not be happy too. How sweet:)

Hey Girls, just wanted to pop in and say hi! I've got a lot going on at home right now so I probably won't be on much but know I am thinking of you all!

Lainey,
That is scarey! Please be careful and take care of yourself! I know it is hard to stay down when you feel like there is so much to do, but it will all wait, your health is more important!

Tracy,
Geesh! You wouldn't think a professional caterer would be so careless!!! You better be careful too!
I am so glad Emma is loving school so much, I bet it does make it so much easier! Please post some pics of her!

Pat,
Sounds like things are coming right along, I would love to see how it is going. (hint, hint, hint!)

Sounds like some great boxes coming in. Gosh the thought of fall and winter is so depressing, I hate the cold! I wish I could find a place that was 75-80 all year! : ) But then I would miss the fall.....

Hi to everyone else! I wish I had time to type a note to each of you, sorry. I will stop in when I can.

Take care

Tracy-Your poor wrist! Burns are so painful. I keep a pot of Aloe Vera handy for burns and insect bites. I'd love to see pictures of Emma in her new school clothes.

I'm hoping to get outside today and do some work. The ground is going to be wet but I don't' have any choice. Still have lots of plans to get into the ground.

Tracy, what the heck, you are a pro, aren't you?? I hate burns, they hurt!

Denise, Thank you again for a great box.

Vic, where have you been? How are the plants doing??

Galium, nice job with this months swap.

Alana, I got your ady and will mail the seeds out sometime this week. I'm looking forward to hearing what the Oct. swap will be.

Carmen, I'm glad that you liked your box.I cut the sidalcea down after it bloomed but it will come right back!

I'm trying to limit my time on the computer as it makes my neck so much worse. I do check in daily, I just don't always post.

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Yeah, some pro I am! I have battle scars to prove it. LOL! Show me a chef with no scars and I will show you a chef with no business. (grin) I have white freckles on my arms from grease splatters. Divets in my finger tips from a little too quick work with my knives. I will not win any hand modeling jobs any time soon. :O)

Now quit picking on my you devil women! By the way, I use the term "chef" loosely. I have a small (very small) catering business. I only do referral parties and that is infrequent, usually busy around the holiday season and in the late spring/summer. Most of the time I'm only cooking for the family.

We are off for the rest of the day. I am bringing the kids back up to Lake Erie for one last hurrah at the beach. The leaves are starting to fall around here but today is supposed to be warm and sunny.

I will try to post pics in the next few days.

Sue, your box is ready and hitting the highway tomorrow. :O)

Hugs,
Tracy

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Yes Pat! Halloween is my favorite holiday too and that will drive the theme for October. It will also be my last swap for the year aside from seeds so I am looking forward to it.
Tracy, I would love to see little Emma going off to school. That brings back memories....
I will be mailing your box tomorrow but I am heading out of town for two days so I may not get back on to post the DC until Wednesday.
I hope everyone else is happy and healthy today, or at least on the mend.

Brooke is adorable! I love the pics of her with you and then with your hubby. It's nice to meet you finally! Now you've inspired me to be brave enough to post the pics of me and Emma on her first day. Still have to get them off the camera though. :O)

Alana, thanks for letting me know. No worries on the DC. Safe travels this week. I hope you are doing something fun while you're away.

Hi everyone!

Margaret, I won't be able to get your box to the P.O. today after all. Will for sure have it there tomorrow. My dad does these favors for me, and is unable to bring it for me today. I should have asked him before I planned on a date! But he will be able to bring it to the P.O. tomorrow. I hope that is ok.

Wendy, I've been wondering what happened to you also! Glad to see you back! :o)

Pat, really??? Dalylily Blueberry Sundae? Oh, goodie, goodie, goodie!! :) I can't wait!! I think that is such a pretty daylily!

Lainy, take it easy, I hope you are up and about really soon!

Tracy, you be careful! No more burning yourself!! I'm glad you had fun at the lake, and can't wait to see the pics!

Denise, what beautiful gardens! Thanks for sharing with us!

Mariann, have fun planting your daylilys. Don't work too hard!

Lisa, I hope your neck is feeling ok. I've been having some tingling in my arm again. I better be more careful of what I lift, and how I lay. I sometimes forget about my problem. Then I over do it.

Vic, nice to see you post! Hope everything is going well for you!

Carmen (and everyone) that was a great box ya got! We can never get too spoiled though!

Alana, I can't wait to see what you have in store for the Halloween swap!

Becky-I got your box sent today & here is the confirmation #0307 0020 0002 5209 4547. I enclosed a note explaining some things about the different plants. I do hope you enjoy & they do nicely for you.

Wendy-I am so glad to see you posting. Have thought of you & yours many times. Keep them coming, please.

Vic-Also glad to see your post. How's that great son of yours? Is he still going to pre-school ok? How have you adjusted to where you are living now? Hope it is better for you & yours.

Tracy-Please take care of your burns. I have suffered a couple of severe ones & every time I think or hear of people getting burns, I get this feeling that I had when I was burned & that was many years ago. I am looking forward to the picture of you & your little one. I would love to see pictures of all of you ladies here.

Karen-Please don't worry about the box. I sure am in no hurry. I am going out of town Wednesday & much going on so don't pressure yourself to send.

Mariann-Thanks for hosting this month. You did a great job. I still am waiting for you to post your graduation party picture!

Mariann - It's nice to "meet" you! Thanks for posting your pic. Thanks, too, for posting an older one; as it makes me feel better. I just told Tracy the other day that I truly don't have a picture of myself that was taken within the last decade! So, since you've given the okay to post a '90's photo, I will do it too!

This is me in 1996. Like Mariann said, now I'm older, with a few more wrinkles (and several more lbs.) but you wouldn't have trouble recoginizing me:

And for Margaret, here's a pic of the kitty we used to have, Meisha, that was part Siamese. Wasn't she beautiful?

For Vic, here's the progress, so far on the front of the house. Last weekend we installed the new LR window. Next weekend we hope to get the new shingle siding up on all of the parts that are without siding in this pic:

Yay! Pictures!! Do you scan those? Because I didn't have a digital camera in the 90's!! I've never tried retrieving pictures from a scan. Maybe I'll have to check on that this afternoon. See what scary pictures of myself I can find, lol. Margaret and Pat, I'm sure you look just as good today as you do in these pictres. It is nice having a face to go with the name. They never match what I have in my imagination. Meisha is was a very pretty cat! Love those eyes!

I was brave enough to post because Mariann did. (And Tracy said she would! Where are you Tracy???) Carmen and everyone else, I hope you will post a pic too. It's always interesting to have some image of who we're talkng to. Even if, as in my case, the photo isn't recent. (I'm sure my extended family and friends have pictures of me in their albums, as I do them, but I don't have any of myself! LOL!)

Karen and Margaret - The pictures I posted (except for the house) are actually taken this morning with my digital camera. I have a scanner but I don't keep it set up, so I just snappped a pic of a pic. I do know that you can scan your pictures into your computer, save them in your photos file and then treat them like you would any other picture. (I have a lot of those in my computer where we divided up my parents photos. It was nice to be able to scan and save when there was only one "original" copy.)

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I received a wonderful box from Becky. It was full of really wonderful plants that I was very pleased to embrace into my garden. Thank you Becky. You're a jewel.

I am up an around a little bit now, so will be able to get my box to Mariann off in a day or two. Thank you all for your kind thoughts and support while I've been immobilized.

So what happens now? Do swaps continue through the winter? or does everyone wait until early spring? I need some edu-caaaaaytion.

Thanks again,

Lainey

Nice pictures ladies. I realize my pictures were not a close up so you probably couldn't see me to well. Here is one of the only ones that I have that is close up. It is from 2005.

This is me with a few extra pounds on after I had Brooke a couple of years ago. I wasn't going to put this one on but it is what I look like now. I still need to lose those extra 15 lbs:)

Pat-Thanks for posting your pic. now I know who I'm talking to. I've always tried to visualize my GW friends.

Denise-Great pictures! I'm so glad you posted a close up.

Carmen-I'd love to have you help me plant DL's. Of course I'd have to keep an eye on you so you didn't put any in your car.LOL

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Quick note before I go to bed...I will look through some pictures tomorrow and if I find something, I'll try Pat's trick (taking a pic of a pic) and post it. I'm usually the one taking the pictures, so there aren't many of me.

Carmen and Denise, love your pics, too! :0)

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Carmen, I love your picture. How pretty. You wouldn't scare anything away in my garden with a smile like that.

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Oh my goodness! Look at all my beautiful friends! I am smiling ear to ear right now. I am so happy that I get to see all or your wonderful faces.

Mariann, you are a beauty. I love your picture! I think this is the very first time I've gotten to see you. Finally, after these many years! You made my day!

Pat, I am shocked that you actually match what I have pictured in my mind. You are a beautiful lady! I'm so happy to get to see you!

Denise, I love your wedding photo! You are a stunning couple. You look wonderful after just having Brooke. I can't believe how good you look. I wish I had looked half as nice after my kids were born. I am excited to meet you!

Carmen, I am cracking up at your picture. You are just as sunny and imp like as I imagined. I love that picture of you with the lilies. Gorgeous! I am grinning like an idiot right now.

Sorry I went AWOL on all of you. It has been crazy busy here again. Without further ado, here are my pictures.

Here is Emma and me on her first day of Preschool.

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Yay! We got to see our wonderful, silly, and beautiful friend Tracy!! :) Love them smilin kiddos! You do such a good job describing every one else's pictures too! I'm not as good with words, but what Tracy said, is what I think also!

Well, here is my family. Excuse the blurriness. I took pictures of pics and couldn't get them to focus too well.

This is my oldest, Melissa. She just got elected Homecoming attendant of her Junior class.
Photobucket

This is my middle child, Christopher. He is an 8th grader and was proud of himself for recovering a fumble from the opposing team during his football game yesterday. He isn't too fond on smiling with his braces.

Photobucket

This is my baby, lol. Thomas is in the 3rd grade and the first one I yell for to remove a frog, toad, or snake from my gardens. He LOVES them! This picture is actually a couple yrs old, but he looks the same.

Photobucket

And here is me. (groan) The pic to the left is 24 yrs old. One of my senior pics, and the one to the right is me & hubby at the Firehall about 5 yrs ago.
Photobucket

Whew! That wasn't so bad I guess, lol. The computer screen hasn't burst into flames or anything.

While I was uploading these pictures, the mailman came, and I just had to take a picture of the awesome plants that Pat sent me. I'm am so tickled with them all. As you can see, they are huge, healthy, and have that fresly dug appearance! I received the original 5 plants plus Heucheras 'Autumn Leaves' (gorgeous coloring!), 'Plum Royale' (another one with amazing coloring!) and 'Mint Julep' (love it!). Daylilys 'Blueberry Sundae' from my wish list, love it, and she was soooo kind to share with me a fan of her 'Moana Twirler' that she won for a prize in our other White Elephant swap, from Shirley. I soooo loved that spider Daylily! Thank you so very much Pat! I can't wait to get these planted!

My shade garden is going to be spectacular next year thanks to all of my gardening friends here! :)

WOOO HOOO Tracy you look just like I imagined, you look sweet and impish yourself LOL. Emma is so cute she looks so much like you.
Miss Tracy, May I remind you that I wasn't such an imp until I started to learn from you on RR LOL WHOA BABY!!!!

Karen you have an awesome family, your doughter is gorgeous
No wonder she won HCQ it looks like she has the personality too. Your boys are very handsome too
You and DH well, what can I say you guys rock!!!!

Tracy, I love all the pictures. You have a beautiful family too. I didn't realize you had 4 children. You must have alot of fun with them. Emma looks as excited about school as you said. How cute. I wonder how long that will last. LOL.

What a nice looking group we have here. Thanks for sharing all the pictures everyone:)

Denise

Karen

Karen, You posted all of your pictures while I was about to post and then I got sidetracked:)

You have a gorgeous family. I have to agree with Carmen that your daughter is very pretty. And your sons are quite handsome. From what I can tell you shouldn't be groaning at all you look the same as your 24 yr old picture. I think they call that aging gracefully. LOL. What a pretty smile.

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Great photos! I don't really have anything current of me, but I will try to post a Halloween picture next month-much closer to the real me.
Speaking of which, I am going to post the October Swap in a few minutes; as soon as I can type it up.

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Ok, I'm back! I'm done playing catch up with reading all the posts that I've missed.

Margaret, thank you for worrying about me but I am fine. It is nearly completely healed now. It isn't painful at all anymore and is much smaller. I've gotten myself several times over the years. None worse than when I had my first job at McDonald's. I emptied the fry basket into the the warmer bin and lifted the basket too high and stuck my arm to the grid on the heating lamp. I had a nice tic-tac-toe design on my forearm for a few years. I'm a clutz, no two ways about it. I am sorry that you had a painful experience like that. I can't imagine how awful it must have been. (((hugs)))

Pat, I am in awe of the transformation the house has undergone. It is looking fantastic. I keep looking at the picture of you and can't believe how much you look like my childhood friend. Her name was Colleen and had the same shape to her face and beautiful eyes. She had lovely dark wavy hair that I was soooo jealous of. I'm so happy to have the chance to see you. It took me long enough to post those pictures didn't it? LOL! I don't know where the time keeps flying off to. These are the first pictures taken of me in years. I am normally the one behind the camera. Ed suddenly started doing it for our last couple of outings. It's a nice change. :O)

Alana, thank for posting the DC, I can't wait to see your pic in the Halloween Swap! I bet it will scare the pants off us. LOL!

Lainey, I am so glad you are doing better. Take it slow sister! What happens next is we'll keep swapping till we drop. We do swaps through the winter months. The host will pick a theme that suits the time of year and any fun ideas that would work well for most of us. Since plants will be hard to manage soon we can send bulbs, seeds, gifty items that fit the season. I can plant through October most of the time, last year I was able to put hostas in the ground then. We don't have to join in the swap if we're not able to, visiting and playing games is great too. There's no requirements on how often we have to trade.

Karen, you have a beautiful family! I love the picture of you and your hubby at the firehouse! I agree with Denise! You do look just like your younger picture! Beautiful! Congratulations to your daughter for winning Homecoming Attendant! That is awesome and she is so pretty, just like her Mama! Your boys are handsome devils! How is your youngest at wrangling skunks? I have one that is haunting the neighborhood and needs to be dealt with. He keeps spraying around our house. GROSS! I love how you tucked the kids baby pics in there. They were such happy babies. I want to squeeze them. The plants that Pat sent look so vibrant! You are right, your shade garden will be stunning in the spring. Wow!

Carmen, I keep laughing every time I look at your picture. You are the cutest thing ever! Uh, I think you came to us all Imp'ed up, I can't take credit for that! LOL! Everyone tells me that Emma looks like me, I think she is much cuter! LOL!

Denise, thank you! Yes, we have a big group here and we do have a pretty good time. They are all very different and special in their own ways. Pat is quiet and reserved, Jack is mine and his Dad's big helper and very active, Dan is my cuddler who springs into action at the drop of a pin (he has a stubborn streak a mile wide though) and Emma is so girly, sweet, helpful, and very happy, she rarely has a bad day. I hope she keeps loving school. She told me today that she just can't believe she is in school now. She had the sweetest expression when she said it.

The picture of Brooke all snuggled up next to you is pulling at my heart strings, she looks so sweet and cuddly. She makes me miss those days just a tiny bit. :O)

Ok, I'm all caught up I think. Now I have to get back to cleaning. Anyone want to come over and help? (yeah right, like I'll get any takers on that one. lol!)

Thank you Alana!

Alana, Thank you so much for the wonderful box of goodies you sent to me. Everything was in great shape and super fresh looking. I can't thank you enough for all the wonderful plants and the adorable confetti paper and cute paper umbrellas, the kids are having a blast with them right now.

Alana sent:
Seeds from Coreopsis "Autumn Blush"
Red Surprise Tulips
Double White Obdam Daffodils
Muscari Latifolum
Heuchera Melting Fire
Hosta Christmas Tree
Astilbe Dwarf White
Hydrangea "Mariesii Variegata"

I love the red tulips and the double white Daffs! I will definitely be winter sowing the seeds from Autumn Blush. Thank you again!

Thank You Pictures, Images and Photos

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Hi girls! Sorry I went MIA...have just been doing a lot of necessary running and been gone a good bit, something I am not used to.

Anywho...I finally (late) got my box mailed today to Alana today.
DC # 0103 8555 7497 0421 2096

When I got home I found Tracy's box waiting for me on the back step.

I got
Chelone "Hot Lips" (Turtleshead)-Huge clump of several plants
Hydrangea "Shamrock"-NICELY rooted!
Astilbe "Deutschland"-not 1 but 2 HUGE clumps
Hosta "Stiletto"-so sweet
Heuchera "Havana" -cool!
and bonus of Hosta Alex Summers..all so very healthy looking and so well packed. I see I must still be learning at how to pack, because Tracy sure did an excellent job.

Again...thank you girls for letting me join you all, and am sorry to have been so slow.

I'll not be joining for the Oct swap (just going to be too busy,) but will be stopping by, and hope to resume swapping with you all sometime later.

I'm heading now to care for all my new goodies!

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Alright Lisa!! I'm so happy you posted a pic! I love your hair!! It's the same color of my moms, and my sister and I both wish we could've been blessed with her hair. She actually prayed none of her kids would get her hair. So I ended up with my dads hair, thin and thinning, and I do believe I've got as much gray as my mom already.

Your daughter is gorgeous, too! My 13 yr said she was 'hot'. Boys! He is too young to be thinking like that! lol

Well, I better go check on supper.

Sue, we will miss you in Oct's swap, but look forward to your visists!

Tracy is a good packer, and I forgot to mention it while drooling over Pat's flowers she sent, but she did an awesome job packing, too! Good idea about the small trash bag to line the box, and it makes for easy clean up!

Thank you everyone for the compliments on my family and I!

Hello again girls!

I agonized sooo much about posting a pic today that I forgot to comment on how lovely all of you are.

Karen, you and your children are adoralble!

Tracy, you and Emma are so cute in that pic!

Carmen, you don't look like a grandma to me!

Denise, love that wedding pic.

Mariann, you are right, you guys are beautiful!

Pat, you look just like someone I know too! Love that wavy hair, mine is stick straight!

Did I miss anyone?? I don't think so but I'll check and comment later, I have to run to the store.

Oh and Karen, does your Moms hair color come from a bottle like mine??? LOL I actually have very dark Italian hair and blue eyes from my dad but my Moms scottish and Irish skin so I color my hair lighter.

Everyone's pictures are wonderful. It is so nice to be able to place a face with a post. I don't think I'll be posting mine though. The warrenty is up on my computer and I can't risk it!

I received my box from Margaret today. I couldn't believe how fresh and perky everything looked. I learned a lot about packing from this lady. She sent:

hosta Balhaubur
hosta Abique Drinking Gourds
Heuchera Saturn
Japanese Painted Fern
Hosta noid
daylily Pandora's Box
hosta Twist of Lime
hosta Teaspoon
seed envelopes
Goo Goo Clusters

Oh my goodness! Lisa! I am so happy to see your beautiful face! I agree completely with Karen, you have gorgeous hair! I'm poker straight too, with a couple of wonky collicks in there to make matters worse. LOL! You have the bluest eyes! Wow! Your daughter is gorgeous, I am not surprised that Karen's son said she is hot. Uh HUH! Yep, no doubt about it. She sure is. :O)

Becky, please? Pretty please? With sugar on top? No worries, I get it. I am afraid my PC doesn't do pictures anymore either. Luckily the laptop uploads beautifully.

Sue! I am so glad that the plants got home to you today. I was worried that they would hang over till tomorrow. I am so glad you like your box and hope they are perky still. The roots on the Shamrock Hydrangea surprised me when I dug it up. They were something. LOL! I hope you visit with us even though you won't be swapping next month!

All these boxes are simply amazing. I keep drooling over them all over again.

Alana, thank you again. Your box made my day!

Hugs!

Ladies I'm impressed! You gals are all beautiful!

Carmen look at you surrounded by those huge lilies. They don't take away from your beauty though. You can help me plant DL's as long as you bring some of that sunshine that emanates from you. Oh and a few lily bulbs.LOL

Tracy-I just love the mommy and daughter picture. Emma looks so happy and you are lovely! Just as I imagined you'd be. Can't tell you how wonderful it is to finally see you.

Karen-Melissa is a beauty! I have to laugh about Christopher not smiling. My DD went through the same thing when she had braces. I guess all kids do. Thomas is really adorable! You have the most beautiful eyes and a delightful smile. It's great to meet you. Your hair doesn't look like it's thin. My hair is very fine too although it didn't use to be. I didn't know your DH was a fireman. Look at all those goodies you received from Pat. Terrific box!

Sue-I'm so happy that you joined us this month. Don't be a stranger and swap with us again.

Lisa-You don't take awful pictures! You are so attractive. It's so obvious that Angela is your daughter. She's beautiful. I like the artistic look of Derrick's picture. My brother takes a lot of black and white photos. How old is Kayla? She looks like her mom too! You have such a beautiful family.

Becky-I'm sure a picture of you won't blow up your computer.LOL So come on and post that picture...Please...

If I can find it I have a pic of my DH and me. I think it was taken in the mid 80's My mom use to always have her camera with her. So I have lots of pictures of me growing up. I've hardly ever had my picture taken since she passed away. My DD hates to have her picture taken. I do have one when she was in high school so I'll scan it and post it

Now, Margaret you started this by asking me to post a picture of myself. We all want to see your lovely face....

I'll post a list of sent and received boxes in a little while.

Hugs to all of you beautiful ladies what a wonderful ending to a fun swap.

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Lisa, Derrick sure is a handsome young man! And Kayla is very pretty also. I love her long hair!

Mariann, yes my hair has always been on the thin side, but now it is starting to thin out also! boo hoo! I usually have a perm for a fuller look. I just had my mom cut it last week, and she went a little wild with the scissors! It is pretty short now! lol But I don't complain. I ususally have her perm my hair too. I do the coloring.

Lisa, my moms hair is still her natural color, maybe just not as vibrant anymore. And very thick! She is around 64 yrs young and I still think she has a ways to go before being all gray. She waitresses/cooks 5 1/2 days a week. I wish I had her figure!!

Tracy, I can't imagine you grumpy EVER! Not even with out ONE cup of coffee in ya! :0)

Margaret and Becky, POST THAT PIC! (like in Extreme Home Makeover, 'MOVE THAT BUS!)

Hi, Ladies-I received my great box from Karen today & am so pleased with it. What a great wrapping job she did, too.

Contents:Daylily-Siloam Baby Talk
Hosta'-Little One, August Moon (I love
small & tiny ones, am going to look up
August Moon after this post)
Heucheras-Melting Fire, Stoplight, Venus &
Key Lime Pie (looking these up, too)
Crimson Pygmy Dwarf Japanese Barberry

I have really begun to love the Heuchera's & Hosta's. A brand new addiction for me!
Thanks so much, Karen. I love them all & can't wait to get them in the ground.

Now for the show! Here is a picture of a picture taken last summer, I think. The caption says "I am the only one with grey hair!!!". I just didn't want to go back & mess with the text. Have a good laugh & if you make a copy of it you can put it in your basement to scare away any critters you have there. Blessings, Margaret

Mariann,

Kayla would love to hear that she looks like the rest of us. She isn't my blood daughter, she's been adopted by our family, I call her the baby. She lost her Dad to cancer last year and hasn't had a mom for many years. She's 17 and a senior in high school.I have high hopes for her in spite of her past troubles, she's a great kid!

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Margaret, I'm glad you like everything! I think the little hosta was called 'Blue Ice' and the 'Stoplights' is the Heucherella. Tracy shared that with me last spring! (and the Key Lime Pie) Now I'm sharing with you! I'm glad you posted your picture! You remind me of my aunt! Is there anyone else who needs to post a pic yet?? Shirley? Sassy? :0)

I do need to post about the wonderful swap box from Carmen.
I did a happy dance when I saw all the goodies she sent me.

Denise, you are a sweetheart. I think colorful is definitely a good way to describe all of us. Yep, I'm chuckling over that. I think we're all nuts.

Sassy, I know you're lurking out there, probably right now. Aren't you? Pop in and say hello woman! Oh, and post your beautiful face on here too. (((HUGS)))

Margaret, I think your adorable! who says "older" can't be beautiful!

Shirley, you sure don't look like an old hag to me, I have to say that I thought you were much older. I think it was a post from a long time ago where you refered to yourself as ancient but you just set me straight!

It is so nice to put a face to the name, I think that your all beautiful inside and out.

Now, can I take that nasty pic of myself off or are we waiting for someone else to see them??

Have a great day!

RE: UPDATE: Sept ~Petal Pushers~ Shade Plant Swap-Let's Play-Par

Lisa-I wouldn't have known that Kayla wasn't your biological daughter. I've always found it interesting that children pick up body language and facial expressions of their parents or the people they live with. My daughter, Carol, is from my first marriage. Her father gave up parental rights and allowed Carol to be adopted by my second husband, John. I've had people tell me that she looks like John. Was Kayla's father a friend of yours?

Margaret-You sweet lady! I'm so glad you posted your picture. You are definitely not scary. You are a very attractive lady and I just love your smile.

Shirley-WOW look at you! I honestly thought you were the youngest in the group picture. Wonderful photos...thanks so much for posting them.

My mom took 2 of these pictures. She was so great with a camera.

Sassy! Stop in a post a picture of yourself.

I can't express how delighted I am at seeing all of you for the first time. Now I can finally put names to faces...wonderful, smiling and beautiful faces.
Hugs to all

Mariann, I really like that pic of you and John at your friend's house. You both look so nice together. Carol is beautiful! She looks so much like you and I can see why someone would say she looks like John too, love that Grand Canyon shot!

Sassy, oh Sassy, come on! POST THAT PIC!

Shirley, what wonderful pictures!! I would never have thought you were one of the oldest in the 2nd pic. One of the youngest, yes! Lovely!

Mariann, yes, I see many smiles like that on my son! He has a ways to go with them, too. My daughter got hers off last year, but still has a bottom retainer-thingy. It seems never ending! Nice pictures!

Good Morning all!

I'm glad to see some more faces to put to names!

I was just peeking in on facebook and noticed that Larry had a pic of part of his iris garden on there. I copied it to show it to those of you who got some of his irises.

Larry and his wife - iris garden

This is just a SMALL portion of the bed, it was a huge area but it all looked like this.
