November Birthday Club

Blackshear, GA

There's always room for more folks to join us. If you're just stumbling upon our Birthday thread or have lurked in the past and would like to join the fun, here's how our group works. During your Birth Month, you will receive a Birthday Card from each of the other participants. And in turn, you are to mail a Birthday Card to each participant during their Birth Month. Who doesn't enjoy receiving a thoughtful Card instead of junk mail and bills? A Card and a 1st Class Stamp, it's as simple as that. Purchased and handcrafted Cards are both welcome. Come on and have some fun!!!!

Rvnsbrk / Juanita -- October 9 is missing from this list :(

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Oh, the I'd love to be there!

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Juanita is not officially in the group, she ran this group for a long time, and has other things to do, so we sent her a card just because we care about her! That is why we are taking turns running different months.

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Does anybody else think it's time for a roll call? Several folks on the list haven't posted for a long time.

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Sounds good to me, if you're still with us, please pop in and let us know!

Linda Kay, ... here!

Mountain View, CA(Zone 9b)

Hi, all.

Been thinking we might want to dmail those we haven't heard from in a while. Wondering if they lost there way now that we're trading off hosting? And we could remind them to drop by now and then so we know they're still with us?
Oh, Paula, can you add in the list of who's signed up to host which month up top, too? Thanks!

Now you all understand why I needed a break. Riding herd on adults is not my deal. :0) Love you guys,

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

All we had was a smidgen of rain and a lot of wind.

Sand Springs (Tulsa), OK(Zone 7a)

I am here.

For those of you that know the story of my back, and I've been out of commission since August 20th when I pinched a nerve back there, my pain mgmt doc wanted to do an MRI so that was done Wednesday. I went in for my injection today and he told me that I have a herniated disk at L3-L4. That is the disk right at the top of my fusion of L4, L5 and S1. I had been told that was a possibility when I had my surgery done because it now takes all the weight of my spine. So, that is the culprit of my pinched nerve. It is sticking out there and has something in a bind. UGH! We are going to continue the injections as we have been and concentrate on that area. Hopefully we can avoid another surgery.

That card with the honeycreeper on it is gorgeous. I adore songbirds so many of my writing papers have some kind of bird on them. Is it an Audubon card?

Blackshear, GA

Hello everyone, been busy running errands all day. Lowes had all there fruit trees and plants 50% off. Bought 2 fig, 2 pear, 2 plum, 3 blackberry, 2 blueberry, 2 raspberry, 1 peach,a red maple, and a beautiful japanese maple (lace leaf).

Today's fun flower fact.

- The Daisy got its name because the yellow center resembled the sun. It was commonly known as the “day’s eye” and over time, was eventually called daisy.

Oh, and I like the flower facts, too :)
Well, must go for now. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Blackshear, GA

Good Morning all....its Saturday and I SHOULD be sleeping late, but my mind says otherwise.

Inspected my plants that I haven't moved yet into the GH and the cold weather we had the last few days nipped them a little. Got to get my rear in gear and finish getting them tucked away.

Fun flower fact: Onions contain a mild antibiotic that fights infections, soothes burns, tames bee stings and relieves the itch of athletes foot.

Henderson, NC(Zone 7b)

Thank you Susan, need lots of hugs right now. So sorry to always be whining.
Paula, your babies have found a "Happy" home. we are loving one another. Didn't take me long to look forward to the flower facts.
Michelle, I really don't know how the double post happened. I know I sent it, left site, came back to site and there it was waiting to be posted who knows?
Happy week end to you all.

Blackshear, GA

YOU do not whine!! We are here for you. I have several other babies I can share, but I know you are limited on space, so I will wait till spring.

Good Morning...did everyone remember to set your clocks back???

Fun flower fact;

Every plant in Tomorrowland at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, is edible.

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Yes, we have our clocks at the correct time! Thanks for the reminder!

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Only had to reset the stove, microwave, and a radio~alarm clock. The wonders of technology did the rest.

What a fabulous fun flower fact!

Michelle, I attached a photo of Amaryllis 'Lemon Lime' that's blooming now. Took a whiff for you but didn't detect a fragrance.

Look who's next so, Dear Faye, on Christmas Day :)
