Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9b)

I would like to join and I'll pick #4 whatever my partner would like to do is fine with me.

Barbourville, KY(Zone 7a)

Hello Susie,
My preference would be #3. I will join if there is a partner that is in the "1-2 NICE SIZE PLANT OUT OF YOUR PARTNERS GARDEN" club.
Alana

Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

Morning Susie, I'd love to join. #3 would be my choice, too. Waving to Alana and Sue. I'm still cleaning those hundreds of spring bulbs (Narcissus and Daffodils) that my sister didn't want anymore. They're a mix of sizes, colors and types, not labeled.

evening all I will return in the morning signing off to go make room for my new frig is on the way :) good night to all.

Winnetka, CA

Hi Susie....

I'd love to join the August swap if you have room.

# 2 would work the best for me as here in southern California we are in the upper 90s and 100 degree temps daily.... shipping a plant would be risky for me....but I'd love a gift card/certificate for Annies Annuals or White Flower Farms (although I think WFF gift certificates are in $25.00 increments) that I could use in the fall when temps cool down... Annies is a favorite of mine!

Alternatively #1 would be nice - for the Vermont Country Store.....

Ordering cards online sounds nice during these hot days!! -:)

Hope everyone is trying to stay cool!

Message from another swap thread...

Hi Everyone!
I just spoke to Deejay(Susie) her dad passed this morning. She asked me to let everyone know, and she wanted me to tell everyone she will be on when she can! I told her NO worries and that we would all be thinking and praying for her, and she (like she would) said she is thinking of all of us too!
Thanks everyone!

I just wanted to let everyone know that you can save a few dollars by using the Regional Zone boxes from the USPS They're new and Priority mail. The boxes are free and delivered right to your house. You can't get them from the Post Office, only by mail. They come in four designations A, B, C, and D. And in two different shapes per designation.

brainerd, MN(Zone 4a)

I will see what i can think of susie :)

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

I am so happy to hear that yesterday was a great goodbye for a great father! :) Hugs and love always!

I don't care if we're secret or not for august....but if our partner has choices....is it just up to us to decide?

Games -- not sure I'm smart enough for those games! I can't even identify Kathy's plants - ever!

brainerd, MN(Zone 4a)

Lol, here is a brain teaser for you.
Its raining, what am i doing? (Besides yard work)

Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

Getting wet?

brainerd, MN(Zone 4a)

Nope.
This is what i have done while i am doing what i am doing, and remeber, its not yard work...dug up a dead nine bush and two spirea, planted three rose bushes in their places in front of the house, planted ALL potted plants that i have purchased or reveived in trade, replanted the spirea, mowed, weeded, stacked wood, piled branches, 15 loads of laundry, cleaned out cabinets, placed a few pavers, had about 30 cups of coffee....
