Thanks Synda for letting me use your pic :D
We'll toast the 4th of July our swap way!!

Still plenty of time to mail out, and if you're sending plants, the date can be 'stretched' to accomodate the heat :(

Betty, I agree with you!! This is the best swap ever for me! What a way to celebrate Independance Day with patriots like these swappers, plus a very special honorary American.. you!
You got your wish Betty, next year you'll be first on the list, beating Liz!!!

And the best thing about this swap, for as long as I'm with DG, it will go on every year.
Err.. I know it will be on next year...as someone has been so kind as to renew my subscription! :X

Chat away ladies.. firearms...dogs... cats... weather... FLAGS!!!

Jaye, thank you sweetie, now if only you can convince the USA Government to give me dual citizenship I'll be thrilled to no end! lol

Was out shopping last night and saw our Canadian July 1st. decorations out..need to drop in to a few stores and seeing ours is July 1st. I think I'd best at least get a couple of flags to put out before my Canadian friends ask if I've switched allegiance..

Yes indeed, all the boxes received so far are spectacular..look forward to seeing more and of course at some point getting mine ( postal service is on strike so not likely I'll receive it by July 4th) so not to worry swap partner...will have to take a photo of the back deck cafe decorated in your R/W/B...

Love it Thunder...
See pictures of your place and feel sad that on my visit your were away!!!

(Di) Seven Mile, OH(Zone 6b)

You go, Thunder! I love seeing patriotism proudly on display.

(thunder)Wildwood, FL(Zone 9a)

Betty, every time I think of you...I feel sad that I was not here to meet you :( but then I get Happy...well sort of, because I was visiting my son and his family and that was great, but sad that it was to see him before deployment......and Happy that I have a good friend to be sad about missing....up down, up down......

My brain and my heart are on a roller coaster...a very big, scary roller coaster!!!......did I mention I don't like roller coasters !!!! Hugs to Y'all I am gonna go sew now....calms the soul.....

these are ribbons for April and May, I put a ribbon up on my fence every day that my son is away (deployed) sending prayers for all of the soldiers every where.....

How touching that you put a ribbon each and every day..hope the roller coaster soon comes to the end of it's voyage..time for you to enjoy without worries!!

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

That's scary sis. Sounds like govt. trying to keep it hush, so there'll be no mass panic.
Let's pray that that won't happen. But to be prepared is much better than gambling it won't happen.

You truly shine as an American, Thunder!!
If there should be a tour around the country to promote patriotism.. you should be in the spotlight!!!
A common American with so much love for this country, and she bleeds AMERICA!!

Yep, get your Canadian flags Betty. Your Canadian neighbours will just envy our Red, White and Blue when comparing the two ;)
Should you decide to assume US citizenship, I'll be there for the oath taking :D

Charleen, I love Serendipity!! IT's my favorite brug. I grew it in a pot for 4 years, and last year decided to place it in the ground.
It hasn't shown any life this year.
I should have known better, as I lost so many brugs. The only ones that keep on returning are the old staples, like your CG and Jean Pasko and Painted Lady.
Oh well.

...........jist in case yall beez wondering................i still beez here! I know they are some rumors to the contrary....but, i here!

Kansas City (Joyce), MO(Zone 5a)

Well if the New Madrid does fault, I am in big trouble if it happens while I am at work, it is a 3 story early 1900's brick building! I will be taller and thinner, like wile e coyote! There was a 4.? something on the New Madrid a couple of weeks ago.

Marysville, OH(Zone 5b)

Those of us near the New Madrid fault have known for at least 20 years that another big one is due. The earth is constantly shifting. Check out this map of earthquakes in the U.S. in the last 7 days: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/

Betty, they also have one for all of North America. I'll try to find the link for that.

Marysville, OH(Zone 5b)

Here's a pretty cool tool. Type in your zip code and ask for the probability of a certain size earthquake within say 10 years or so. https://geohazards.usgs.gov/eqprob/2009/index.php

Marysville, OH(Zone 5b)

Here you go, Betty. You look pretty safe. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Maps/region/N_America.php
