    Thank you, amberroses for the alpine strawberry seeds. I am really looking forward to growing these.

    Thank you, fearadyn for the calendula, coneflower (I know just where to plant this in the garden), and Giant Mutant Unknown Marigold. The card with leaves, petals and seeds print is beautiful, too.

    Kym, I just want to take a moment and say thanks for doing this swap. It's a huge amount of work and you never know just how it will affect people's lives. For me, this will be the main part (possibly all of) Christmas this year. This is always the roughest part of the year for any mailman, and this year it seems to be a little extra rougher.
    And, to all of you who've so graciously sent cards this way, I want to thank you too! Going to the mailbox after a particularily rough day and seeing those cards has been not only great, but uplifting. Just to know that someone took the time to think about me is a fantastic gift, and I thank you very much!
    You're all awesome, and it's truly a blessing to know you all.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm so very sorry. It was only today that I was able to mail all the cards. I was shocked with my busy schedules plus I had a flu as well. I'm feeling better now but I'm still taking antibiotics.

    Thank you so much Margo(smitties), I received your mail yesterday. :)

    Apology again everyone!

    Hi Everyone! I got my first card yesterday! You can't imagine how excited and happy I was! This is my first year, but I have really been having a lot of fun. It's great to hear and talk to others who love planting seeds and gardening as much as I do! I'm glad my daughter Yotetrapper told me about this so I could be a part of the fun! Melinda, (ilovefarac), sent me Sweet Pea-Royal Family Mix, Morning Glory Mix, and Orange African Marigolds. Thanks so much Melinda! Opening your card doubled my Christmas spirit!!
    As for Bingo, I have 13 words so far. Getting closer!
    We're in a winter storm warning tonight..supposed to get 2 feet by tomorrow night. Big storm moving in off of Lake Ontario. I don't mind the snow, though, especially around Christmas!
    Have a good night, everyone!

    These cards and seeds are what gets me out of bed in the morning - I got 3 new ones!

    From pumkingal:
    - Hydrangea 'Pinky Winky'
    - Lemon Mint
    - Pink Mallow
    - Hollyhocks
    - Datura
    - Fancy Poppies
    - Columbine Mix
    You were beyond generous in what you gave - I am so freaking excited to plant all of these! Where did you get the tiny ziploc bags? They are genius! I am most excited about the hydrangeas, the pink mallow and the lemon mint. I have never grown those before so it will be very exciting!!! Love the art print card too - Thank you Thank you!!!!

    From vogt0047:
    - Hollyhock Mix
    - Hollyhock - Dark Mixed
    - Hollyhock - Indian Spring Mix
    - Siberian Iris - Blue and Purple Mix
    - Daylily - Blackeyed Stella
    - Daylily Mix
    - Purple (vetch?) - I don't know if I'm reading it wrong! What are they so I can plant them properly? :)
    I am very excited to get all of these planted! I can't WAIT to see the Hollyhocks - i have never grown them before but they look stunning. The Siberian Iris are something new too, and I've never heard of Black-eyed Stella Daylilies! How awesome! These seeds rule! Love the card! Thank you much!

    From Jodie74:
    Columbine - Mckana's Mix
    Corn Poppy - American Legion Red
    I LOVED the way you taped the seeds to the card in a way that it looked like presents! I loved 'opening' them and finding my surprise! I loved the cute Christmas tree card as well. I am really grateful for the columbine McKana Mix - I tried the McKana mix last year and none of my seedlings survived :( I'm happy I get another chance with that mix! I looked up the red poppies and they look stunning! I tried orange ones before but never red - THANK YOU!!!

    I am beyond grateful for the generosity of seeds that I got so far from everyone. I can't thank you guys enough! These brought tears to my eyes - thank you!!!

    Got 2 more cards Saturday. One from sandlapper_rosa with candy cane zinnias, butterfly bush, and dianthus supserbus. All of which I love. My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter was with us this weekend and she helped me open the cards. Her day was made when she saw the stickers. Thank you.

    in the words of the young Boy Wonder..."Holy Jingle Bells Batman!"
    amidst the blizzard we're currently experiencing, I ventured out to the mailbox during a lull in the snowstorm, and what did I discover? Not one, not two, not three, four, or five envelopes, but TEN!!! Talk about having an OMG moment! ***chuckling***
    In order to get this right, I'm going to tell you what I received as I open them all, so read slowly. I'm not going to be writing this very fast...
    SHERRIH sent cosmos, large pumpkins, marigolds and morning glories
    FEARADYN sent watermelons, coneflowers, & mutant marigolds (I love that description!)
    ROPER2008 sent morning glories, zinnias, marigolds, and watermelons
    FARMERGIRL2009 sent pinhead gourds, poppies, marigolds, morning glories, pumpkins, more morning glories, nasturtiums, and hybrid morning glories
    JODIE74 sent poppies and painted daisies
    RANE-GROW sent blanketflowers and mammoth pumpkins
    REDTHREADDIY sent watermelon, white pumpkins, garlic chives, coneflowers, 2 marigolds, morning glories, carving pumpkins, 2 foxglove, mystery pumpkins, sunflowers, ladybells, 2 blanket flowers, datura, pie pumpkins, and gloriosa daisies
    (pausing to wipe my brow and give my fingers a break)
    PUMPKINGAL sent poppies coneflowers, and baby pumpkins
    YOTETRAPPER sent 3 packs of watermelon, cosmos, and pumpkin
    LISA831 sent coleus seeds

    And now I'm thinking that the whole group involved in this swap needs to come over to my house sometime in September so we can all eat watermelon while we carve pumpkins, and y'all will go home with a huge car-filling bouquet of flowers!


    Let the snow come down, I'm making plans for next Spring, thanks to all of you!!!

    Thanks you to margarita10. I didn't even know what Gaillardia were but one quick google search makes me want it to be Spring so I can start sowing them!

    Many thanks for Alana for the Salvia Lyrate and the Purple Dog Creek Tomato. The tomato itself seems to have an history, and I never grown such a large tomato before so I can't wait to try it out.

    Thank you Jodie74 but your card came to me incomplete. I only have the front part of the envelope. It appears the post office tore it to shreds. Nevertheless, its the thought that counts, so thank you and I'm grateful for the time you put into it.

    Wow Dan, that was worth trampling through the snowdrifts for.

    I received my first card today and it was from Sandlapper-Rose aka Jeanne. It contained yellow 4 O'clocks, yippee and Blanketflower. As I stood up, a sheet of stickers fell on the floor so I believe they fell out of the envelope as well. :)

    Only a dusting of snow here but it is bitterly cold. I am ready for spring already.

    Now, an announcement from me. I will be leaving for a week. I can read the thread from my mothers computer, but I will not be home to see what cards I receive until December 15th. My father is going in on Wednesday for open heart surgery, a valve replacement, and I'll be leaving in the morning, to go to NY.

    Luckily, my cards have already been sent. However, Kym, unfortunately I will not be able to send any cards to those not receiving many, sorry.

    Me too! I got 7 cards today. My first day I received them.

    Jodie(Jodie74) sent me plenty of zinnia and gaillardia seeds
    Lisa(pumpkingal) sent me zinnia orange, gaillardia, black eyed susans and daisy (what a nice selection)
    Angelu(yotetrapper) sent me moon & stars watermelon and jarrahdale pumpkin (I have to look these up - am excited for these)
    Iris(rane_grow) - fanfare blanket flower
    Lynn(fearadun) - gaillardia (red/yellow), mutant marigold, calendula (unique card)
    Ellie(farmergirl) - canna , zinnia and gaillardia
    Katie(redthreaddiy) - canna, balloon flower and gaillardia (I will check out your website soon - I like that you put what type it is in your own seed packet like half - hardy - I think I messed up some seeds before due to that)

    I'm excited to start wintersowing. I thank you so much for the nice cards and seeds. I will attach all these cards to my wall...

    Thank you Kym for setting this up. It involves a lot of time to organize this.

    I will have various zinnias and gaillardia. =-) Hope they will flower the first year.

    I'm doing the Christmas Seed Dance around the house and my teenager thinks I"M TOO LOUD. lol Amberroses sent me 4 kinds of sunflower seeds! Oh I love the Christmas card swaps! No chance of getting coal or socks. It's a card and seeds. Thank you! It's my first SEED CARD of the season! Heidi

    P.S. Amber--the USPS ripped the envelope open on the left side where you start to write the person's name and address. I thought that was a strange place for it to tear open, but the seeds were safely tucked inside. I don't know if anyone else had that trouble.
