"I've got mail"!

Actually my package arrived late Tuesday from Texan over at texan.blogspot.com. 



This lady is a fantastic gardener. I think she must grow some of everything!! Her gardens are amazing!! So, having way too many seeds, she had a give-away and my name was in the pot.

She and her husband have a Great White Pyrenees named Keeper. It was Keeper who drew my name. How special is that? Thank you Keeper!



Would you just look at the seeds! Here...



and here! Why, I've never owned such an assortment of seeds in my entire life!



I am so excited. It's going to be a long wait until next spring! The seeds are in such pretty packs. I love them! Thank you so much Texan!




And speaking of plants, the Camellias are in full bloom. I love the colors.



Could that be a yellow jacket? 




Simply must get busy now. Hopefully, I can finish painting the back side of the shop. This job is beginning to get old!

Hope to be back soon!

Love,
Henny

  4. Hi Henny! That's A LOT of seeds! How fun! Imagine your 2016 garden! Wow!

  5. Wow, that is a treasure trove for sure. Will you have room in your teeny tiny garden for all those different things or will you be plowing up the whole yard? You could harness the goats to pull the plow----I bet that would make for an interesting configuration.

    The camellia is just beautiful. I had no idea that they bloomed in the fall and this late too.

    We are looking at lows in the low 30's the next two days so there may be some sad looking plants around here come Monday.

  15. I think the teeny tiny garden will be bursting at the seams next year. I don't doubt you have seeds for a couple of years.
    I hope you got the painting done before you got too sick of it.The smell of paint makes me feel yucky so I don't get that job. *smile*
