    P.S.

    I sent out 13 cards & most seem to be accounted for happily.

    I have 3 cards left & so today decided to send 3 tiny surprises out to Dan Coates, Val Alterio, & Andrea La Rocque as I seem able to grant 1 or 2 wishes each.

    Garden goodness, friendly hugs & glowing green thumbs for everyone in 2018!!!

    Audrey, glad you received your card - sorry I missed your post. I hope the others make it through. Ladyreneer, congratulations to you and your family on a darling baby girl!

    M'Lady, how thoughtful, and thank you! I was just looking at homes in the Cleveland-Sweetwater area. My guy Charlie and I are looking to move in together this summer, and even though we're both from Michigan, I was able to get him to put Tennessee on the table because I spent 10 years living in Cleveland, and loved each one. Keep your fingers crossed and we just might wind up as "neighbors" one day soon!

    Congratulations on the baby girl! What a way to celebrate the holidays! Have you been thinking of ways to spoil her yet?

    Tammy (MCC371), I received your card today with cute animals and stockings filled with Columbin, coneflower and motherwort (going to have to look up the medicinal uses for such). Thank you! And a Happy Prosperous Gardening New Year to All.

    Tammy, I received a beautiful snowy card and seeds today. Tammy sent coreopsis, cone flower, and larkspur. Larkspur will be a real treat as I have not seen that in years. Thanks Tammy

    That brings my total to 17. I had not tried to keep track but I decided to keep the return addresses. Hope I thanked everyone and especially our Hostess flowers 4 ever

    I was surprised by Tammy too! She sent a Merry Christmas Santa card with White Obedient plant and Malva Zebrina. Thank you Tammy! I love my Purple Obedient flowers which have spread and make quite a summer show. Since it grows easily, I was hoping to get White Obedient plant started too. I've been wanting to try Malva Zebrina, so hope to do a good job with that one also. This swap has really extended the holiday season for all of us.

    Christmas keeps on giving.

    Yesterday I received a card from mcc371.

    Tammy sent a Horse sleigh carrying gifts of Oxeye Daisy and Amaranth.

    Thank you very much Tammy. I appreciate every thing you do.

    Happy New Year

    Tammy, thank you for the card and seeds! That little country house on the looks just so comfortable, and it's something like what I'm hoping to find and move into this summer. Minus the snow, of course...lol! The marigold seeds you sent will make a great addition to the house, if we find it in time.

    Happy New Year, and Thank You!

    Wow, What a way to brighten my day and the new year. I got on to check on the New Year Theme Swap I started for this month and ended up here reading -you all put a smile on my face for sure with all the Thank You's. You are all welcome and thank you for all you sent me. Truly a blessing!

    Did you recieve your cards and seeds from me?


    Checked this list a few times. I know sometimes mail runs late but usually it finally gets there.


    Thanks, Maggie aka faerygardener

  • leann2800

    Please excuse this post if it is a repeat. I thought I thanked someone previously but I don't see it. So, I have thought about thanking multiple times and may have not done so or there are so many posts that I don't have the attention span to find just one amongst many.


    Tammy (aka MCC371) sent me a lovely snow scene along with cupcake white cosmos and yellow Mexican hat. I have never grown any kind of Mexican hat. I don't know if I have ever seen one. But, I am happy to get to try them. Thank you for sending them. The snow scene on the card is especially appropriate this week. My area has the first snow that I have ever seen stick. It has snowed here twice in my lifetime before this week. Both of those times it disappeared rapidly. I actually built a snowman this time. It was kind of cool.

    I truly hope I have thanked every one who has sent me anything. Thank you for thinking of me. Thank you for making my holidays special.

    I think I missed someone or improperly thanked someone. I received one destroyed card that was a front (of the card) and envelope all taped up. But had Coconut ice sunflower, Bunny Tails!, Benarys giant lime Zinnia and Chinese Lanterns!

    Thank you very much Secret Santa, LOL. The seeds made it! All wishes. I am very thankful.

    Spring! Come back please.

  • christacharlene

    Faerygardener, I just went through my cards and didn't see anything from you so it hasn't made it to me yet but a few peoples cards reached me pretty beaten up so who knows what might have happened along the way. While going through my cards I did see something from Hibiscusfan and I don't remember thanking her. If I didn't then I apologize. Anyway, thank you so much either way. :)

  • SusieQsie_Fla

    Hey Fommy, so glad to receive your card and the seeds... and I agree that the seeds are important. I really appreciate all the ones that you mailed and it was nice to read what you wrote about them. I can't wait to taste the Lipstick Pepper and the Shishito Pepper. I think they might be more successful for me to grow in Florida heat than Bells. And the Mammoth Sunflower will be food for the birds while the Mammoth Dill will host the Swallowtails.

    Thanks for your generosity and happy gardening!

    Thank you, Tammy, for the glittery snow scene on your christmas card and the asters and cosmos seeds! Hope your holidays were wonderful. Have been fighting (and losing) a terrible stomach bug this week, so please forgive my delay in getting here.

    LadyReneer, you are too sweet. Your photos of your Christmas arrival were SO precious! Hugs to your little ones!

    I've enjoyed this swap once again this year and wish all the very best for all in 2018!

    Thanks to leann2800, beth-b-kodiak, primrose, naturegirl, ishareflowers, maulwurf, cghpnd, poisondartfrog,Karen Holt and patrob for all the wonderful cards and seeds you sent. Sending Christmas cards is a custom that has, unfortunately, nearly died out. It was lovely to receive so many cards this year. I tucked them into the greenery on my mantel for my family to enjoy. Most of my seed wishes were fulfilled as well, and I look forward to starting them soon. Thanks again, Susan

    I am so sorry I disappeared on you guys. I did get all my cards sent out on time, I haven't had a chance to go read all the comments so I hope they have arrived safely. I caught the flu about a week before Christmas and with my COPD it knocked me out of commission. We didn't even check our post office mail for a week. I am finally starting to feel human again. You guys made my Christmas with all the cards we got, even the husband took notice. lol Last year we got one. This year I lost count. So here goes my long list of Thank yous.

    Erica Braun sent some awesome seeds including some Amaranths yes more than one and several beans I've been looking for. Whoo Hoo!!

    Robin Witty sent a snake gourd and japanese hulless popcorn that I'm excited to try.

    Midwestfarmwife sent zinnias and Isis Candy Tomato. Do you know how long I've wanted that tomato.

    Karen Holt sent me so many different marigolds. I can't wait to get them started.

    Maulwulf send beebalm and Fennel. YAY!! I needed Fennel.

    i shareflowers sent parsley and Orange Jing Okra. Another one from my wish list.

    ranegrow sent strawberry popcorn and Jersey Devil Tomato. YAY!! and YAY!!

    clip clop sent larkspur and TN spinning gourd. I didn't have either one. lol

    poisondartfrog also sent me some TN Spinning Gourd. are you two trying to tell this TN girl she needed a native gourd? Because I definitely did.

    pinkiris sent lime basil and naturtium moonlight. I had to look it up it's so pretty.

    yoletrapper sent columbine. One of my favorites and all mine died.

    Amberroses sent Purple Bumblebee Tomato and Black Vernissage Tomato excited for both of these.

    patrob sent Cream Sausage Tomato and Black and Red Poppies. My Teenager has done swiped the poppies for her Goth Garden lol

    leann2800 sent some water beads. Cant wait to try them.

    naturegirl_2007 sent Violet Jasper and Sunrise Tomatoes and Leeks. All very much wanted and needed.

    heavenlyfarm sent poppy and anemone. I've never grown anemone so super excited.

    xiangirl sent tons of flowers, so many I lost count. Definitely wintersowing them.

    nottoughly sent african marigold and a morning glory that sounds awesome.

    Jaymiepojade sent Jack Olantern Pumpkin also swiped by the teenager lol

    lexiegurl09 sent 4 of my tomatoe wishes and 2 pepper wishes from my list I may have to make my garden bigger this year. YAY!!

    Beth_B_Kodiak sent me veggies I really needed and more columbine. Double YAY!!

    Melinda Hagan sent leeks and spinach both badly needed.

    cghpnd sent Amaranth and Bloodflower. I still need to look up Bloodflower but the teenager says she needs it in her Garden just for the name lol At least shes gardening.

    We actually got a card yesterday, our mail runs so slow. so if I didn't list your name it may be on it's way or I may have forgotten you. I sure hope I didn't do that. But if your names missing please comment so I can double check. My mind has been so messed up between being sick and the medicine to get unsick I was just a mess lol

    Again thank you so much I plan on sending so many more cards next year. You are all an inspiration.

As I certainly didn't mean to skip or miss telling you, I will have to look again thru my cards as I received many blessings thru this swap. Thank You anyway from the list it looks like many blessings went out and I know that someone is appreciative of all received just as I am. Thanks Patrob.

    So, I have a card that was previously received but kidnapped by another family member. Imagine my surprise when I wondered where the new card on the wall came from and how long it had been there and I was told it came from 'the gardeners."

    Jayeanne (Pinkiris) sent a card with Santa in an old car with a tree on top being pulled by a reindeer. It had 2 kinds of zinnia, cosmos, sunflower, and milkweed. Thank you very much for thinking of me. I am sorry if I am thanking you twice or thanking you late. But, I am sincerely grateful if not a bit disorganized.

    Now that my tree is down, I think it is time to get this upcoming gardening season organized and ready to go.


    Happy Gardening everyone.

    Just when you think Christmas is over and it's okay to begin thinking about Spring, a card from Renee arrives! Lol, thank you Renee! The spinach will be tasty this spring, and I've never grown veronica, so that'll make for a nice experiment once I know where I'll be planting my summer gardens! Have yourself a wonderful 2018!!

    I will think of you all as I sow and hopefully grow out your seeds. This is always a very enjoyable swap.

    I am very sorry to hear about your Dad!

    Jas_il I am so sorry! I should have sent you the tracking number! I threw it awAy after it was delivered about 4 to 5 days after I mailed! I only had about 5 people that got seeds in a brown envelope instead of the Christmas card envelope. I hate it because I know you would have liked them as they were all off of your list. I know several were the last commercial ones I sent the second time. Please message me and give me your add fess and I will see what I can do! I have plenty!

    Hi all! I was hoping somebody could help me. I received these poppy seeds in the seed swap. Due to getting an abundance of seeds I can't remember who gave me what, lol. Thanks again everyone! I am hoping that whoever sent these seeds can let me know if these are annual, perennial, or a mix of both. I am wanting to plant a few annual poppies in my vegetable garden and perennial poppies in my flower bed, that is why I am asking. Thanks :)

    They are in a wax paper envelope, placed inside a ziploc plastic bag.

    Christmas came in February for me! Very excited! A big thank you to Melinda.

    Melinda Hagen, sent me nice angel card with 9 packs of seeds all commercial from (ferry morse and burpee) company.

    These are: Impatiens Tropical fizz (my absolute favorite), okra clemson spineless (love), cucumber burpless tender green, collards georgia, Beans golden beans improved (my fav), Zebra grass (excited), Super sugar snap peas (love peas), Carnation chabaud giant (love it) and marigold crackerjack mix. Love everything.

    Can't wait to try them. Thank you so much.

    So sweet of you Melinda for mailing the package for 3rd time. Sorry for all the trouble.
