Thank you Nancy for the pretty card and the Rudbeckia and Hostas seeds!

So far I dont mind being held "hosta"-ge by crazy elves, I was a little worried about having to drink lots of hot cocoa and eat lots of candy canes!

And so the mailboxing begins! (doing happy dance)
I received 2 cards in the mail today, one from Nancy, and one from pseudacris_crucifer! Nancy sent coneflower and rudbeckia mixes (I love mixing my seeds up, it makes the flower bed seem more natural!) and Chris sent New Jersey Tea, Grey-headed Coneflower, and Compass Plant. Thank you both!!!
And now, I'm off to research those last three!

Peace.

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

Woo hoo! I received a pretty Santa card from NLB52 aka Nancy. Inside were packages of two tone pink sweet peas and red/white/pink Hibiscus. My daughter will be excited to see the sweet peas, since they are one of her favorites. Hibiscus are a fav of mine -- even if I am allergic to them! LOL - that reminds me I need to get the three large hibiscus protected tonight - we are supposed to get a freeze! :) Thanks again, Nancy!

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

I received a card too! An absolutely adorable pop up Christmas tree from Chris (pseudacris_crucifer).

Chris sent:
New Jersey Tea - I can't tell you how excited I am about trying this species. I love the Ceanothus genus and it will be so perfect for my cottage garden.

The cup plant, which I was going to buy seeds for and don't have to now. I'm already excited to see this one in flower.

Grey headed coneflower, which I have been reading about and trying to find seeds for. Will look gorgeous with the Rudbeckias.

And last, but certainly not least, the beautiful sky blue aster, which I haven't had the pleasure of seeing before, but from the photos I've found it looks absolutely gorgeous!

Thank you so much for sending the wonderful goodies.

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

From Just1morehosta. She sent a great card and seeds! lol With seeds of Malva Zebrina, Cosmos - Sea Shell Mix, Bachelor's Button - Blue Boy, Wildflower Mix, Zinnia - Candy Cane, & Sweet Pea - Royal Family.

Thank you so much! Really love the colors that these would grow to. And yes, I have done that before just like it shows on the card! lol Tongue on an icy pole can be bad. Thank goodness I didn't put much pressure. :)

Merry Christmas

Thank you yotetrapper for the white acorn and spaghetti squash seeds. We will definitely eat them. With lots of butter and brown sugar.

I had a rough day at work today, and getting a Christmas card and surprise seeds was a much needed pick-me-up.

And I am glad that the seeds I sent have found good homes.

Awww, I've been running to my mailbox for 2 days now. We hear the mail lady and as soon as she stops at our house, I'm out the door. Today I ran out in my socks and it was raining, slapped back to the house in wet socks disappointedly with only bills...sigh.
I'm so excited to get my cards in the mail. I'm almost done. buwahahahaha, who will my victims be????? I had a little elf helper so some will get extra special cards. This is fun!

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

My two boys spent the entire afternoon cutting and pasting decorations for the cards. Once the glue dries, I will put the seed packets in, and send them on their way. Little sister really wants to help too, so if I'm able to send out any more cards, they will have some of her artwork on them as well. What a fun family project this was!

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

Aloha all,

I was in a bad car wreck a few days ago. The car is not driveable, and I have been in a lot of pain from the wreck.

Due to the aftereffects of the wreck including short term memory loss and the general confusion over what i need to do medically, I have not yet been able to go thru peoples want lists to see who I am elfing to.

Thursday, I will be in the medical clinic for accident followup care, so I hope to be able to bring the lists with me and decide who i will be elfing to while I am in the waiting room.

TY for your patience, please bear with me!

Not in good enuff shape just yet to do my own mailboxing, mailbox is down the street about a block cause im in an apt complex and it still hurts a lot to even walk .. Might ask hubby to check the mailbox for me.


 o
Grovespirit RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#

Wow, grovespirit, that is terrible. We appreciate any effort regarding seeds, but I'll look forward much more to hearing good news about your recovery. Don't worry about seeds! Amazing how a few seconds can totally change your life!

Have lifted up a prayer for you today as you go to the clinic.

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

No cards yet for me, but that's ok. I'll try to be patient.

Actually, I feel a little bad that I didn't have much good stuff to send people, especially hearing about what other people are sending. This was my first year gardening after three years of apartment living with no garden. So my seed collection is kind of pitiful right now.

But I sent in what I could. Hopefully next year I'll have better stuff to send.

Stay warm everyone! Looks like this week I'm finally going to have my first freeze down here!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

This "Secret Santa" Swap is so much fun and full of so much spirit!

Grovespirit....be well!

Neohippie...do not feel bad about not having lots of seeds to send...we all have to start somewhere!!!! I remember when I did not have any seeds because I always just bought the plants....LOL! Happy seeding!!

Merry Christmas!!

MY FIRST ENVELOPE!! YEA!!!

Thanks, Pseudacris-crucifer for my really neat homemade Christmas Tree Card (crafty people just amaze me) and the fantastic butterfly food! I got some milkweed and goldenrod, and a beautiful aster as an extra surprise. The asters growing by the side of the road here are so pretty. I really look forward to having more in my garden. I desperately wanted to "steal" some from the side of the highway, but I thought for sure I'd get caught. Now I have some seeds!

Thanks for my first card!

Hi all.
I received a card today from quilting fox!! It contained Gaillardia (mix of Golden & Frenzy) seeds. I can't wait to get these started -- I don't have either of these!

Your card was such a treat to find in the mailbox today -- because I woke up to an inch of snow on the ground -- so it really made my day!!

Hope everyone has a great day -- and that everyone finds some wonderful seeds in their mailbox!

Thanks so much
Crystal

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

Hooray! I got two cards today!

I got one of the nifty cards from pseudacris_crucifer, with some lettuce seeds, and the seeds of a wildflower called "sneezeweed". LOL! Great name! I hadn't heard of that one (and here I am wanting to become a Master Naturalist, shame on me!), but I found it in the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center database. (That's an awesome place to go if you want info on landscaping with native plants btw... I'll go ahead and throw that URL down there...)

I got another card from just1morehosta aka Carol. Got some pepper seeds and two more varieties of lettuce. Beautiful card too.

I bet I can go ahead and winter-sow some of the lettuce and maybe even the sneezeweed (LOL) as soon as this weekend.

Here is a link that might be useful: LBJ Wildflower Center

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Sap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

I've healed much quicker than I thought I would.
No trouble at all walking out to the mailbox, very happy about that! :)

No cards here yet, but then again... Mail does usually take a bit longer to get across the ocean to me.

I did take the lists of peoples wants with me on Thurs so I could go thru them while on bus and in waiting room. I now finally have some clue who I can Elf to! :D

I'm glad my seeds are very organized and that I am in the habit of making seed envies in advance of the hectic Fall/early winter swap season. I make them during slow parts of my year.

Off to email the hostess so she will know who I am Elfing to! Then start mailing cards :)

Happy Holidays - Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Yuletide, Joyous Kwanzaa, etc. to all!

Allright Iris- Growspirit, that's the best thing you got- ability to walk well. Living in HI is a bonus, smile.
You keep at it!

What's the temp there now? What about everyne else? It was 42 deg here in La at 7 am.
Getting warmer and sunny.

No mail yet, watching it from right here, getting there as soon as it arrives, smile.

Kym, love Bingo game, didn't play it last year but will now..thank you.

Just got the idea to post a simple sweet treat any time, Jello Fruit Salad/Dessert served in cocktail glasses and topped with whipped cream and cherry or strawberry it's tasty and festive.
Some of you probably made this often.

Here is mailman, lol...we can all wash a bunch of grapes, peel oranges or apples, best dessert, see you soon.

Back, just advertisements, that's okay, there are days ahead.

JELLO DESSERT/SALAD

I made something like thisabout twice monthly from back when my children were little, but added mini marshmallows which I lately omit.
Have fresh fruits daily, best thing, but once in a while it's nice to make something simple and special.

Prepare Jell-o gelatin ( sugar free) as many and any desired flavors ( favorites are dark cherry and strawberry) according to package direction. Cover and refrigerate until it starts to gel; stir in desired chopped toasted nuts, chopped fruits ( apple, grapes, cranberries, strawberries, blueberries, any preferred), keep cold until firm. Serve in bowls or cocktail glasses topped with whipped cream-lite and garnish with cherry or halved strawberry or other.

You think instead of all or part of water...using orange juice and sections would do well?

make haste slowly,enjoy

Kym,
You want our Bingo list in alphabetical order. Does that mean we need to put it on the card in alphabetical order? If not, do you also want us to let you know how we arranged the words on the Bingo card?

Details, details!! Gotta love those details,

Deanna

Bea, at 7 am the thermometer outside my kitchen window said it was 4, but NOAA says it got down to - 4 overnight. We've warmed up now though ... it's 15!!! My DH and I are supposed to sing and play guitar at a star lighting event tomorrow evening. I just hope I can feel my fingers enough to play.

Well, I'm off to work on my cards.

Stay warm everyone,

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

Hooray and thanks for the Bingo game!! :)

Agrees with Bea- Ability to walk around without pain again is the very best Xmas gift. I definitely plan to keep up with the walks!! :)

Living in HI does feel like a bonus, most of the time. :)

Doesn't feel so much of a bonus when the roads are full of exhausted, cellphone-using, or impatient xmas shoppers who are driving recklessly (no turn signals, cutting people off, some of them even with headlights off at night!!) at speeds 10+ mph over the limit, with no regard to wrecks that may eventually be caused to the saner drivers like me.

What's the temp there now?
Nighttime lows in the 40s, highs in the 70s during afternoons.

We are also in the rainy season. Lots of rain these past few days, but not freezing rain. My plants and I both enjoy it. :)

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

I received two wonderful cards today.

Micyrey - sent an absolutely adorable handmade card and Senna marilandica seeds, which I'm so excited about (I'm starting them in the greenhouse tonight). I have a Cassia that I started from seed last year and love so I have been wanted to try other similar species.

Becky, booberry85, sent an extremely cute bear card, which I love because my mother collects teddy bears. For seeds she sent 'Yellow Giant' sweet bell, 'Red Cherry' sweet pepper and 'Costoluto Genovese'.

I have quite a few pepper varieties but a lot of them are hot peppers and no one in my family eats hot peppers. I still like growing them just because they're pretty but it's going to be so nice to have new sweet peppers to try this year.

And thank you for sending the 'Costoluto Genovese'! I grew that variety this summer and loved it immensely, but only had a couple of seeds and hadn't counted on this year's early frost cutting the tomato seed harvest short.

Thank you both so much for sending such fantastic seeds!

~Amanda

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

Just a quick note of thanks before going to bed. Mother Nature decided to dump a load of snow on us today, as if delivering the mail this time of year didn't mean long enough days at work. Ah well, this time of year means mailboxing too, so that makes things better! Today I found four cards in the mailbox today! I'm going to wait until Sunday morning (when I'll be rested and thinking straight) to open them so I can enjoy them more. Right now I'm fighting to stay awake, but wanted to thank Alana, Pam P., Sandra, and D. Luna for their cards. Thank You One & All!

Peace. (and g'nite)

Hope you all stay warm and well...take care, especially you Ruth. Right on Iris! Paradise is a good health, anywhere, well almost anywhere, smile.
It's turning cold ...33 deg, snow and sleet about 80 m away, might get here, hope not the sleet. Put some plants in the patio corner, will be busy today putting a lot more in there then cover them up tonight, predicted to get lower temps,ugh.

My little fiberoptic tree looking so good, want to keep it all year long, just like Christmas feelings-spirit, only with warmer temperatures, smile.
Been preparing seeds, cards are simple, it's packets that take me more time but I've been making bunches for so long, love sending them out, seeds don't last long stored here.

Kym, good one, let me see if I can think of any funnies.

Q: What kind of candle burns longer? White or red?
None, they all burn short.

Q: What kind of ball doesn't bounce?
Snowball.

We know Santa is a man. No woman would wear same outfit year after year.

Well wishes, have a good weekend,

wipe_yo_feets, yes neighbors indeed we are. I think you're a little further north than I am. I hope you enjoy your seeds.

Yesterday, I recieved 3 cards. I received a beautiful collection of hosta seeds from mao tse mom. Don't know which I enjoyed more, the seeds or the beautiful packaging. I rec'ed 10 different varieties of hosta seeds wrapped in the prettiest, tiniest envelope. So creative!

I also rec'ed the cutest homemade card from dirt_under_my_nails. I've never heard of Ebony and Ivory Scabiosa. Is that one plant that flowers in 2 different colors?

And hibiscusfan, (Suzanne Thatcher) I knew I could find you even though you didn't include your GW nick. I couldn't be happier to receive your package of Scabiosa (blue), Heuchura, Rubbeckia and Ballon Flower seeds.

Thank you one and all. You've all made my day. I am so excited to recieve so many cards that for the first time ever I've decorated my mantle with them. I even went outside to gather branches of evergreens and holly berry and created a beautiful wreath to hang over the fireplace. My family loves it. Thanks for the inspiration. You guys are truely the best!

And a special thanks to Kym for making it happen. You're quite the coordinator!

Thank you very, very much thinking_stomach for the Red Ruffled Sweet Pepper.

Now I hope that my mom (Sandy2) got her first card today too. I wonder if her mail came yet. I hope she got one, we have been guessing who would get the first card, would be nice if it were both of us.

Thank you again, thinking_stomach! Now I am off to look up a picture of the pepper. I believe I have heard of it and think I know what it looks like, but I will have to see. I can not wait to try it, I love trying different things!

It's still snowing here, but it's not going to last.

I got a homemade card from Micyrey. I love the snowflake. It contained Amaranthus seeds. Thanks a bunch.

On a side note...anyone else notice that some cards that say "hand cancel please" are not hand canceled. So far I have not noticed a problem with the seeds. Just an observation I made.

Happy Mailboxing everyone!!

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

I wrote FRAGILE PLEASE HAND STAMP on every card ... the postal clerks stamped them right at the counter while I watched ... they were really nice about it ... I hope all the seeds I send out make it unscathed ;-) HO HO HO !!!

I am really enjoying this swap ... its just as much fun waiting to hear when everyone starts to get the cards and seeds I sent as it is finding one in my own mailbox ;-) I had to run an errand earlier in this freezing rain and actually got out of the car in this mess to check my mail on the way back ... LOL ... the mail hasn't run yet ... serves me right ;-)

Happy Holidays one and all!

I received my first Christmas card and 3 wonderful special seed packages of angel trumpet, hollyhock & hibiscus all from YOTETRAPPER.

Thank you ever so much! My daughter (bagardens) and I had our own little contest going and who was going to get the first card. Lo and behold we both received our first card on the same day.

Thanks again yotetrapper! Looking forward to making my own little 2009 Santa Wish List garden plot come spring 2010. Won't that be interesting?!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My first two cards arrived today! Thank you so much! The past few weeks have been trying for me and I have not been in the holiday mood at all. These cards really cheered me up.

The first card was from poisondartfrog. Alana sent me Salvia austriaca. I am so excited. I have wanted yellow Salvia for some time now!

The second card was from hdiperna. Heidi sent me seeds of a white liatris. I had purple but not white. I can't wait to get it growing so I can add it to my flower beds!

Thanks so much!

I had my gall bladder out yesterday, which was no fun at all. So three cards today was a real treat! Thank you - thank you - thank you.

Our_happy_home sent cabbage (next year kraut!), two kinds of black tomato, and crookneck squash

WLB52 sent walking onion bulbs (and thus gets "double elf points" as I promised in my wish list :)

and poisondartfrog sent my favorite type of squash: Galeuse d'eysines (AKA Peanut Pumpkin) - so tasty, such a nice soft shell, which I learned last year is NOT appropriate for cooking squash soup in the shell. you want a hard shell for soup, something that is not so easily pierced by a ladle...

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

Okay, apparently the mail lady does NOT like to see me run to the mailbox because every time I don't check it, I get a card. Hubby checked the mail and came in saying, "Mail call." I got a lovely silvery snowflake card from micyrey with...yippee! red amaranthus. I can't WAIT to plant it.
I am really enjoying hearing what everyone else is getting as well. Today, I went to the post office with a handful of cards but they were closed. Found out that they are closing a half hour earlier than they usually do. Trying to patiently wait till Monday.
Oh and I think everyone needs to post pictures of their secret santa gardens. I would love to see everyone's.

HEY can you crazy elf guys help me out? Ive got a native species that Id be able to send out, shoot me an email with your name on it or the name of a santa participant you know who might like them. Ill at leaST KEEP the exact species secret.

Clematis too, I have a big envy full of some seeds.

:)

Im looking at as many lists as I can, but time is tight for me.... and since your holding me hostage and stuff...

RE: UPDATE: Secret Sant Swap Games and Recd Cards (#3)

Just1morehosta, I'm so glad to hear that the seeds made it safely, and yes, that's one of my puppies on the card. That cupcake is, Moby, a 170 lb newfoundland, but he's our highest energy dog and definitely has as much energy as any lab.

And I received another card today, thank you so much for the hollyhock seeds! They're my mothers favorite flower, but this year was our first year growing hollyhocks here and the rabbits and deer really appreciated the fifty hollyhock plants I put out - not good. But we put a fence in place to protect them for next year and really look forward to these beautiful red hollyhocks.

Thanks again,
Amanda

Good morning friends, hope everyone is keeping warm and well.
Wow, Vel, thank goodness your sister is allright, she must've been driving slow on the ice, always good thing to do.

Fun reading what everyone got, riddles and all.

Forgot who is NEW to GW and needs seeds?

Who recieved 1 or no cards yet?

You are next on my mailing list.

Been preparing cards-first went to old friends - I've been on GW as long as Melinda ( Ilovefarac) and she was one of my very first to trade with)-unforgetable friends, some like relatives-their addresses in my address book.

I've got bunch of seeds thanks to some of you too , from the swaps I've been doing lately, wanting something different and knowing most everyone would like, most of my cards go out tomorrow, love doing it.

* And as long as you love 'em so, let it show, let it show, let it show"

During this season of giving, I am giving thanks for my health and giving thanks for my family and friends. Life is more precious when we pause to appreciate our small gifts in life.

Vel, I hope your sister is alright. Sending good cheers for you both.

Yesterday, I rec'ed more cards. Thank you all so such for brightening my day. Everytime I look at the cards on my mantle, I feel so blessed for knowing such a great group of people. I love you all!

I still need reports from a few people...would you kindly email me...so that I can finish up on those that need some cards.

To those that offered to help me with a second round of cards, THANKS, the list has been going around..I update it and then send to the next person.

Thanks for all the Bingo Cards, words will be posted today...feel free to post that you got words...just not which ones :D

Have a wonderful Day !!! (Im off to my sons "Superbowl game")
