Swaps are such fun and allow us to show our creativity in a specific catagory. Anyone can go wild with one idea, but what if we raise the bar a bit?
Earlier this year we kicked around some ideas for the summer and out popped part of the bride's poem, "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue..." for a June swap. Don't panic, this isn't about marriage or brides but a challenge to your creativity.
Each package will have four items, yes only four. One for each piece of the rhyme. I will concede that if you are giving, say a matched set of something, it will be the same as one item. Example: box of tea bags, bag of candy, two matched dish towels, pair of socks (ROFLMAO), etc. Any card you include would not count.
Now for the fun part. Old can be something truly old: antique, me, grandmother's garters, geez where am I going? Something repurposed,a baby from a plant you have had for many years, last year's fruit cake, cookies made from an old recipe which is included, etc.
New is pretty self explanatory isn't it?
Borrowed is one we have cussed and discussed: perhaps something you got from another swap, something that was given to you rather than purchased, something of your neighbor's (Oops here I go again), no nothing illegal please. We can surely talk about it before we hand out names.
Blue, well there are hundreds of shades of blue and thousands of things that are blue even before you get to sad, jazz, or bluegrass.
Everyone will keep their secret identity secret till packages are posted. Please send me a dmail with your address and contact info when you sign up. If there is something you would like but haven't seen a swap with it offered, now is the time to speak up. No one will listen but you will feel better. LOL Seriously, this is going to be a great chance to really get the creative juices flowing and let our imagination run wild!
We will close sign ups June 14, get names on the 15th, and hope to have all our packages in the wind by July 4th. $20 limit on boxes, not counting postage please. Everyone get a delivery confirmation number and forward it to me if you wish, but don't post it online. Let's have some fun!!!!!

Waving frantically! I've been waiting for this one.

Great explanation, Joy, and a very fresh, totally unique idea.


Edited to add a few hints. This is not the easiest swap any of us have been in and definitely need to put on my thinking cap for my buddy.

Likes, most everything you'd call junk and have stashed in a closet or a garage.

#1 on the list is glass, any kind -- Depression glass, paperweights, mosaics, stepping stones, small gazing balls
Any kind of Rusty stuff, especially if it shows age and has a patina
Pretty Pottery Plates, Cups, Planters or Urns, especially those with shabby-chic Floral designs
Old Sprinklers & Watering Cans
Repurposed anything
Garden Critters -- Bunnies, Turtles, Frogs
Anything Copper -- I've been eying one of those whirly-gigs
Old wooden toolboxes and hand made tools

Creative juices???? This sounds like a scary prospect...and since I'm not spending much time outside already, June is destined to be a HOT one! SIGN ME UP! - Joy, do you need my info?


For my likes, well, I have almost no garden decor, so anything you send will be great.

I will warn that you'll have to explain what to do with it! lol

I live in zone 8b/9a and have almost NO shade, other than where the deer and squirrels play! I'm forced to use containers as usable soil is scarce as the yard is pockmarked with exposed limestone, clumpy clay, and caliche. The backyard is pretty bare except for wildflowers that grace us, being one of the few items that will grow in the scrabble. So full sun plants, especially fragrants, are popular with me.
We have 3 golden retrievers (sometimes 4 if we're fostering for a rescue) and the wildlife that visit us. I have raised beds with a few roses, and raised beds for herbs and veggies (when the raccoon/skunk doesn't eat them. Grr)

I like vines, thorny things, smelly things, tropical things, succulent things. In short, I like pretty much everything! I like bright cheerful colors and things that make me smile or laugh. (that's easier than it sounds - I'm easily amused!) so if it makes you giggle, you can bet I'd like it! I could always use birdfeeders, birdhouses and things to attract hummers and butterflies. I also like decorations featuring the above! I'm starting to collect wind chimes too, and have lots and lots of branches to decorate with all of them. :)

LK, BBB means butterfly, hummingbird and bee flowers.

Glad to see everyone, I have been so busy I have not been on a lot but with the heat becoming intense I am spending more time inside. Not very good for my waistline, but gives me time to come up with crazy ideas!
Let's start bouncing ideas around to help keep us all on the same wavelength. If you have a style or things you love/hate, now is a good time to put them out there. Would hate to send chocolate to someone who couldn't eat it.
I know that most folks summers are not condusive to mailing plants but that still leaves a lot of other things we all like.

What are your ideas on "Borrowed"? I have several nice things from swaps that just don't fit my personality although they were obviously well intentioned. The only things my neighbors give me is grief so bottling that would make me happier but not my buddy.

I am right there with you Michelle, I have tons of recipes handed down or begged off folks, and I do love to cook. I know, maybe a homemade recipe book for a buddy, filled with loving recipes that were given.

well here is a little about me to help whoever ends up with my name...

i live on a half acre in what used to be an old one room schoolhouse, built in 1940. My husband hates it but i love it! when we bought the place, it had one cabinet with a sink in the kitchen and nothing else. it has a bathroom that is walled off as well as one bedroom (with walls). My 7 yr old has the bedroom and we sectioned off part of it with dressers for our bedroom. When we moved here, we were told by the internet provider that we could get service out here, but when i called to transfer it- they said they dont have service out here lol. So now, we have to improvise! Anyway, I have barnwood all over the inside walls of my house from the chalk rail to the 14' ceiling except in the bathroom, where the original slate blackboard still hangs (and gets used).

My husband has been a collector of dvd's and has now switched to blue ray discs, so a movie you love on blue ray might be a good idea for the something blue (but i also love the color blue as well as blue named music).

I am an electronics fanatic. I, personally own 3 computers... yea, was NOT pleased about the internet thing lol

I am in the process of building up my supply of stuff for a nursery- which I would love to start right here at home. I have most of my plants in pots because my ground is hard as a rock and im pretty sure it will stay that way since i don't have a tiller. I can control the mix better if i grow in containers tho. We share a parking lot with the little country church next door, so parking wouldnt be an issue at all.

I drive a pickup truck, a mini van, a compact car and a motorcycle - 2 of which are blue and 3 are old...

Borrowed things tend to forget to come home when I lend them out (made my sister dinner to go for her birthday- that was May 8th and im still waiting on my containers back lol)

I LOVE to cook! My kitchen now takes up half of the schoolhouse (since we did away with that single cabinet)

I have 2 large birds- one is a military macaw and the other is a double yellow headed amazon. Both are big babies

I also have 2 dogs- one is a golden retriever/ great pyranese mix and the other is pit bull/ beagle/boxer mix... again- big babies lol

I have 2 grown sons who are in the military- one is in the army, stationed in Kuwait and the other is in the Marines, stationed at 29 palms california

I have a wacky sense of humor and love silly things

i like chocolate- but not so sure i would like it arriving in a big gooey mass in june lol


I think that's about it... not sure what else to put. If this doesn't give my swapmate ideas, nothing will LOL

Heck I will give this a try...please whoever my buddy is I hope you are forgiving...rofl...

Heck this is me in a nut shell:
Live on 3 acres, have full sun, part sun, and full shade, love to garden, forced to work to pay for it
Just built a pergola, no decorations as of yet
I am building a potting bench, no decorations as of yet
Have a garden shed that needs decor on the outside desperately, why too naked
Have small water garden with some water plants and lots of frog decor for the pond
Have 2 raised concrete beds with veggies in them
DH is currently building the Taj MaCoop chicken and duck house, our first chickens (don't ask why cause I don't have a good answer on why we have chickens) no decor on it either
3 dogs, a pound dog wire terrier - named shortie, a dumped dog black lab - named sam, and another dumped dog a black and white basset hound named slick
1 cat black named hairy
Love old rusty metal things, have wanted to put old water cans on a shelf above the door of the Garden room, ones in bad shape are really good...rofl..adds character
Collect flower frogs, and almost any garden decor
No wind chimes please, it is always windy on the hill and they are just torn to pieces and it is sad... ;(
This should be alot of fun...

Hi, all.
For the something borrowed, think of it in this case as a gift you're borrowing from elsewhere to give in this swap :) Perhaps someone gave you something that's a really nice gift, but for whatever reason, you need to "re-gift" it to a good home.
Oh, that's what BBB plants are. Thanks for clarifying :)

OK, I will try to list my likes also...

First of all I love anything blue, especially angels with blue dresses. Trying to collect blue bottles, as I want a bottle tree someday!
All my plants are outside in full Texas, and all of them are in pots or the raised bed, as our caliche clay soil is hard like concrete! I do have a small space in the back yard for shaded plants, but that is filling up fast. I love quirky yard art and decorations!
Chocolates? Yes, I love them all especially dark choccies.
I also have a 30 year old double yellow headed amazon parrot, and Paco can be quite noisy sometimes. Especially when we sit to eat, and don't share out food fast enough! He loves to come out of the cage in the mornings and share my coffee with me! I also love hummingbirds, and hummingbird decorations!

Oh yay :) Other Bird Lover's! I have a Shamrock Macaw (bigger than the Blue & Gold) named Camelot, but we just call the stinker Cam or Cam-Cam, a Goffin's Cockatoo named Meeko (yes, after the raccoon in Pochantas), 2 Cockatiels named Sol and Harley. Sol is the only bird that is not a rescue, as she was bought from a breeder. Every other one is a rescue, and we are currently trying to finalize the adoption for a Mollucan Cockatoo.

We also have a husky/wolf mix named Toki, we got after the passing of my baby, a 150lb female rottie. My husband just showed up with him and said here you go, 3 weeks after we had to put her down because of Lymphoma. And 3 cats named Ellie, Sara, and Jester. (I will try to post some pictures of the birds later tonight)

I raise tropical plants indoors in Ohio during the winter and I do outdoor gardening as well. Tropical Hibiscus is my absolute favorite flower :) I am quite proud of mine! It is just me and my husband here, no kids, maybe after I finish my bachelor's degree. Yes, I work full time and go to school full time as well. Its difficult but it will be so worth it. I already have my Associate's Degree in Human Resource Management, and I am working on a bachelors degree in International Business, with a minor in Asian Studies. Thankfully due to my IPad and IPhone, I am able to check up on my threads ;) I am an Apple fanatic LOL. So if you have old articles lying around about Apple or Steve Jobs, there's my something old lol.

I also have a nice sized cactus collection, I love every one of them ;)

So glad to see you Crit. I ended up making a fly and die type trip. Drove up and back in two days. Two very long (14 hour) days. But she is an absolute cutie and is doing well.

I really miss my Hahn's macaw, which is the smallest macaw there is. He was a rescue as well, we had him for 10 years but lost him earlier this year. I have thought I would like another bird but don't know any rescue folks now. I am a big believer in "it will happen if it is meant to be."

We tried Pet Finder awhile back. I have given up on the whole rescue idea for anything. Sorry, but I will not subject myself to what my husband calls a "home invasion" to get vetted to take in an animal. I understand all the reasons why, but I find it way too excessive in this area. Joy sorry to hear about the macaw. I remember him talking a lot when we were on the phone.

I want in here! Sounds fun. I will have a while to think about all these aspects of the swap (old, new, borrowed, blue).

About me:
I live out in the country (altho the city keeps creeping, galloping some say) in my direction. I have lots of room, but have about reached the limit in flower beds/borders that I can care for. (Still room to stick stuff in, tho)
I like unusual plants.
I have a greenhouse with lots of tropicals.
I like wind chimes and whirligigs. I'm especially fond of the sound of bamboo chimes
I collect old souvenir spoons
Blue is my favorite color. well, maybe aqua
I like reading, but tend toward material about plants. Not mushy romance.
Love seashells
Love wildflowers and pictures of wildflowers
Like old country music. Wish I had a CD of the old Chuck Wagon Gang
Like visits from new plant lover friends
Like wacky purses and tote bags, even old ones. Straw is good
Like fossils (now there is something OLD)
How about a CD with old songs about Blue , like blue moon over Kentucky (seems like I am putting a lot of stuff about music here, but don't read too much into that)
It's the borrowed part that has me stymied. Maybe we could borrow an idea and make something.
Like homemade stuff and crafts


O well, I guess I could go on and on. I like Swaps. Have only participated in a few but have like all. Am looking forward to this one.

About me: I live in suburbs with only sbout 1/3 acre, hot zone 8a summers with very little usable shade garden space but lots of sun in my garden beds. Pots on the deck and front porch. Veggie garden, too. I like to start from seed and will be trying winter sowing in milk jugs this winter, so seeds are definitely a hit with me (rose campion, anyone?) love bulbs, (Snow drops?). Also grow tropicals like meyer lemon, plumeria and brugmansia that I bring indoors for winter.
Collect yellow pottery pitchers and bowls, any size used or new, but other than that no knick knacks or yard art please.
Love nutty, smart dogs, my Australian shepherd follows me everywhere except the office. And cats always find us, no matter that I always say I'm not a cat person, the cats know better.
I can always use another garden trowel.

Ya'll keep the "me's" coming and I'll follow your lead adding to mine above.

I just wanted to share that a friend and I visited my mail lady's farm all day yesterday and I GOT SOMETHING OLD. We hadn't been there since last Fall and it was another fun and entertaining adventure watching goat escapades, especially the newborns going 'boing, boing, boing' jumping straight up in the air like a Pogo stick instead of walking or running...so cute and down right hilarious! I know you know what I mean, Joy, and was thrilled when she let me bottle feed one of them with two bottles of milk. She sold her rabbits last Fall, some were exotics, but didn't want to overwinter them, but still has a couple of sheep, a new rescued horse, several Angus cows, many different breeds of chickens and guineas (must have been 100 eggs in the incubator) and a Guinea hatched while we were there. Her two beautiful free-range tame Turkeys were strutting in competition for her early-Spring hatched hens. The Toms flirted with us girls all day too, and I ended up using a spray from the hose several times on the Royal Palm for him to leave me the hell alone. He even followed me to my car just to get a bottle of water out of the cooler and I could feel the 'breeze' of his feathers on the back on my legs. Way too close for comfort! He's a known flogger but only usually when a man shows up like when her hubby did late in the day, but what a beautiful black and white bird he is. The other one looked like a traditional wild Tom, very well-behaved and pretty much kept his distance. We had a Turkey 101 lesson about drumming and strutting, and puffing and changing colors on their heads when they're 'hot' so to speak...lol I know Hubby has seen all this in the wild many times but has spared me the details...lol Right before we left, we got another lesson about the different breeds of goats she raises and in which direction their horns grow, or don't like her only very sweet doe Nubian, or crosses called Polls that have no horns. My fav little fellow was a little black and grey baby Buck Pygmy she had just bought.

Susan IL, Who knows? It could very well be trumped by another 'something old' we find at an annual Festival hubby and I are attending Saturday.

I'm ticked. A few days ago I started my family tree on Ancestry.com and had a lot of information added on both sides of my family and almost 100 people in my tree including links to old photos. When I corrected one wrong record last night, my tree ended up being one measly branch and am headed there now to try to start reconstructing the info that was lost *sigh* Thankfully, my mother left great notes for both sides of my family. happ, has this ever happened to you?

Ridoodle what beautiful blooms! What zone is RI? Some of you on the east coast surprise me with your warm zones due to the ocean I guess?

Fruity, trust me I have been there done that... so sad and depressing when you get it all entered and lose it. I had a wonderful file on my computer years ago, and got a virus and lost the whole thing...I was so upset. My fault for not backing it up. I noticed family tree software is now on the cloud it looked like to me.

I am sort of a purest when it comes to my family tree, I want 3 documents of evidence to prove or disprove a fact, birth, death, marriage, what ever. I have found out word of mouth from relatives is the worst information...rofl along with death notices. Death notices/certificates if you think about it, the family is typically distressed and trying to recall dates and names and alot of times they get it wrong...My Mom if she had a birth certificate it was lost in a fire at the courthouse. So to get a birth certificate my two G-Aunts had to go up and testify when she was born...well guess what, they couldn't agree! Here my Mom had children saying her birthdate was 1925 and a marriage license, but my two Aunts decided it was 1924...Mom thought well ok she would just get to retire early...but if you didn't know the story and you looked at the documents nothing matches...rofl.

Welcome ridoodles!
I will jump in on the "about me" train, although it will derail several times before I get through. First of all I am blonde and good at it. Totally a country girl, my DH and I have a farm where we raise sheep, dairy goats, ducks and geese, and a passel of livestock guardian dogs. I have two grown sons, both of whom are great kids. We have a rescue Clydesdale and a rescue QH, as well as two rescue burros whose names change with the holidays. Right now they are Fire and Cracker. I train dogs and run the farm for a living, living in a turn of the century simple farm house that we are still rennovating.
I love repurposed junk, unexpected finds, any good music, chocolate (but not really dark), love to cook, and always treasure handmade things. Our house is early eclectic, with antiques right next to rusty farm tools.
I have eight Border Collies that work and play hard as well as two barn cats and my house cat (Maine Coon) Maizie. Currently working on the front yard trying to turn it into a cottage garden and making cheese in the afternoons when the heat gets unbearable.

Just one week away! I think I have come up with a borrowed item, new might be a hard one for me. We are finally getting rain after being totally dry for over a month with temps in the 90's. Several of my May transplants have not made it through this patch.
Even the LGD's have taken to swimming in the pond to get cool. "Look Ma, it's a Sullygator!"

happ, when I corrected the one wrong record, the dates were still wrong. As soon as those were corrected...VOILA! The whole tree reappeared and the hints lit up. Since then I've been able to trace my XXGreats and XXXGreats on the Maternal side of my family (back to Germany). I know those branches are right since I remember hearing my Mother talk about her Aunts, Uncles and Grandparents by first and last names and where they lived in TN. Got really lucky there remembering that when the names popped up. I've been corresponding with someone on my Dad's side of the family and am having a ball learning about Cousins that were much older than me that I barely remember. It's neat too they're shared some old photos with me privately. Gotta love those Leisure Suits in the 70's...lol

Ooh, ooh, ooh...I found my OLD this afternoon. Already had the New and the Blue. Don't have a clue what to include that's Borrowed unless it's a plant someone has shared with me. I thought about a clock. You know, like living on 'borrowed' time? And am kicking myself now for not scarfing up the neatest hourglass I saw last week-end at the Festival. Love those things.

I'm not a June Bride but am curious if there are any in the bunch?

Oh Fruity glad you didn't lose everything on your family tree. It is discouraging when that happens. I love researching the families and learning all about them. I did my step-fathers family for my little sister and made contact with someone else doing genealogy on the family. Come to find out we were the only ones with a picture of one of the GGrandparents, the family I got in contact with were so excited because it filled a hole they had, and in turn they shared a ton of pictures of my step-father (I view him as my Dad) when he was really young which was great. He was handsome as a grown up but goodness he was a lady killer when he was young...rofl.

The family tree folks I met earlier that I posted they had original civil war letters sent from husband to wife and back, talk about something amazing to hold and read. They were kind enough to give me copies of them. Joy go for it. You start with yourself and start working backwards...

Some of our folks have a greener thumb than others, I for one try really hard and think that I have gotten good at growing, only to walk out one day and see something dead and I don't know what I did. We have a challenging ecosystem here with days already up to 100, sometimes drought, sometimes wet. I walked out this morning and one of my coneflowers is wilting away, my variegated Jacobs Ladder is almost gone, and one of my EE's that was florishing looks pitiful. Yet I have other coneflowers that are wonderful, my potted EE's are doing well, and my porterweed is three times the size it was a month ago. Go figure.
Two more days till names,

Joy

Very best of luck on your endeavors, Susan. I wouldn't mind a private D-mail with a list of your plants, size, and and asking price. I'm always looking to add more perennials either for my gardens or trades and swaps.

How I love Cones and am slowly replacing several lost last year to Aster Yellows Virus. New ones I've recently added are 'Pow Wow White' and 'Pow Wow Wild Berry', anxiously awaiting buds. Pic is E. Paradoxa added last Fall from Bluestone and have since learned it's a Native Prairie flower for you folks in Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Oklahoma; and the 'paradox' in the name comes from the color yellow instead of the usual purple. Poppies are another flower I'd love to grow, but out of the hundreds if not 1000's of seeds I've scattered in fall, only a few have germinated and even those limped out before maturity.

gosh I must have gotten lost, lol. Or busy planting, weeding, buying more to plant, weeding. Garden club, weeding, buying more plants (again). And gosh buying more plants again today and yesterday...Lowes had some goodies marked down, one store due to hail and another just because, lol, those are the best... And then Home Depot had a sale on shrubs at $3.33, and I got a bunch, still wanting Prunus cistena (one of my favs.) Car was full yesterday, even got a tree in there somewhere along with more plants...Will be starting to plant the backyard this weekend. Nothing back there other than weeds and wild grasses. Figured it was time to get it planted with some things that are beautiful. Still wanting to find a few trees that fit my scheme: inexpensive, fragrant blooms, and tough!!!! lol. Heck, I've only been here 5 years...

Plants are always welcomed here! And any excess rain is also welcomed, (thinking about a rain dance for our state, lol, but then again we really need it)!!!!!! I want plants from ridoodle!!!!!! Those Altheas (rose of sharon) are just scrumpious!!!!!!! Have never seen a double like that, just beautifulllllll.

Susan...if you get me, I love unusual plants (and I'm not a newbie, shhhh,lol)..What kind of a nursery do you have?

Well I am just getting started, so I would say the best answer to that question would be "a small one" LOL

I have some very cool trees here, you can see a bit of what I have in my "have" list here, as I try really hard to keep it updated. I am just working on building up stock right now, but am willing to turn loose of a baby here and there for a VERY good price... cuz I get them for good prices, too.

One thing I will not be selling is the iris's I have asked for here on DG. When I moved into my house, it had a pitiful little flower garden out there, but it was/is so overgrown with weeds, I have been having a hard time discerning what's what. It covers a patch that is MAYBE 8'x8' square... and has at least 10 different kinds of plants in it. But, no iris :(... it's like they didn't even know I was coming LOL

I do have a few rose of sharons... and more on order. Have you seen the double red? They also have one with hibiscus sized flowers on it...

How do you feel about Willows and Japanese Maples?

I love corkscrew willows and have killed the last three I have had. We have a native willow at our old pond. I also love all the Japanese Maples, we lost our last one last year to the drought, the other one was lost to our unexpected 16 degree January a couple years ago (it was newly planted). There are so many varieties out there now, so few places to plant.
Love your irises Kathy, I just ordered some irises for half off, they are repeat bloomers. Here's hoping for a great fall.

Joy its good that you are trying to grow these amazing trees, even though you keep losing them. Have you considered getting one of the other varieties of willow? Dragon willow has branches very much like the corkscrew and there is also one called twisted that is pretty close. Golden Curls willow is very pretty when its leaves are on then turns out pretty cool come fall, too. I also stock Black Pussywillow and Dapple Willow, which is a VERY cool combination to grow. These are all water seeking trees and should be planted at least 30' away from septic, wells, sisterns and storm drains. Keeping them very well watered in the first couple of weeks to a month means they have the best chance of survival. If you have a wet/marshy area, this is where they will grow best.

As for the Japanese Maples, there are only about 100 different varieties lol. Right now, I have just one... sango Kaku. I am working at building my stock plants so I can take cuttings from them when they are ready.

I am working right now to add new arrivals to my list

When I was a young girl, there was a pussy willow at the foot of our driveway and I loved it, eating lunches under it till all the "feet" started bolting and attracting bees. Then my mom would make me stay away. (I used to collect bees in mason jars to bring inside) I have never seen a black one before, how cool is that??!!! When I googled, one picture called it a Zombie willow. OMG! A must for the back yard near the tree house we have planned. Only problem is that we spend a vast majority of the time lately in drought, maybe I can figure a way to plant it near a pond and still keep the animals away from it. Hmmmmm

You can plant willow within about 20 feet of a water source and it will stay nice and wet and should grow very nicely without any extra watering (as long as the hole stays wet!)

Hi, all.
Here's a bit about me for those of you who don't know me:
I have a small collection of amaryllis/hippeastrums, including some that I started from seeds collected from my own flowers, that I grow in containers. Most of mine are fragrant to various degrees, but I also look for those with other interesting characteristics to add to the gene pool in my collection.
I do some other container gardening, too; now focusing on fragrant flowers, especially ones I can use as cut flowers. I want to put my collection of vases to better use.
I also enjoy crocheting, cooking, baking, and reading (mostly audio books, sometimes braille). And I love listening to the sounds of nature (such as birds, streams, ocean waves).
I don't wear much jewelry. But a necklace (20") or barrettes to wear for special occasions would be nice. Please, no bracelets or earrings; I'd be afraid they'd get caught on something.
Favorite colors: like them all, but especially purples, greens, and blues.
OTHER LIKES: chocolate. homemade goodies and things. scented soaps. scented or beeswax candles (these are good, but have quite a collection right now). herbal tea (such as chamomile, blueberry, and orange or apple spice). ;,t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters (size large).
DISLIKES: Shrubs (don't have room). Invasives (I try to avoid these). Body wash, bath powders, etc. Foods containing hot spices or olives. Alcoholic beverages. Coffee. I only drink caffeinated teas occasionally. White chocolate (it's better when it has other flavors mixed with it)). Headbands (don't fit right). Garden flags (no where to hang). Clothing with hoods.

I will keep them away from the water, (well pipe, down spouts)...other side of the yard they go along with Hydro gels...I'm in the process of drawing up things now. Still buying trees and shrubs the last few days. There are a few I'd love to get but won't pay some of the nursery prices, lol. (Viburnum carlessi, and Prunus padus, just love, love, love, and my favorite Maple yet to get is Acer ginella, the only fragrant one). I still haven't gotten to your latest d-mail sorry, but will , lol...Busy, please forgive!!! (will you be growing perenns from seed? I have many unusuals).

joy...oh, gosh that's not fair...a second bloom on iris. Phooey!!!! I have some that are repeat bloomers but>>>>>> probably won't happen, but I can hope I might get lucky or should I say luckier, I believe...

pix a couple of shrub type clematice, those four legged thingies didn't get them...

Kathy- I have some Vibernum now, but not the variety you want. I'm sure I can find them much cheaper than nursery prices and let you know.

Did u know that the 2nd one you listed is also known as a hackberry tree? you may get them cheaper under such an ugly name :)

that maple you like is said to only be hearty to zone 2... if you do get one, i suggest potting it so it can come indoors in winter

As for what I will be growing, right now I am not entirely sure. Things that sell well and things I, personally love seem to be a good place to start. For the time being, I am ordering rooted cuttings wholesale and growing them out a bit then reselling them. Seems that will work well... but I really wanna grow things too :)

susan...sorry but the hackberry is Celtis. The prunus padus is a fruiting tree, common name is birdcherry, and is soooo fragrant, yummmm. I go to the botanic gardens every year for the mothers day sale and it's always in bloom. This year was warm early so I missed it by several weeks. And that Viburnum has umbel type flowers and is also VERY fragrant, with great fall color too. There are 2 I want, carlesii or burkwoodii. Carlesii is also known as Korean Spice, emits a strong daphne-like fragrance. Another I look for at the bot gardens in May... And that Maple is Hardy down to zone 2. I grew it in z5. Another great smeller. And I loved to get some of those Daphnes tooo, yummm, but not ready yet, wanna get some shrubs in to make a micro climate that might be a little more to it's liking.

Gosh...I guess I am, lol!!! Spent too many years reading...Now I just wanna grow all those things I've read about. I wish nature would cooperate...like 40" of precipt a year.

My favorite vinette, Prince Charles Clematis and Gypsophila paniculat (baby's breath). Don't think it will show that good this year, critters ate the top of my clem. so they aren't ready to bloom yet and the baby's breath is just starting now. Phooey...
