Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Thank You, HolleyGarden!

HolleyGarden is a gardener in Texas with a marvelously green thumb especially with roses.  She's transforming her land as an artist creates a painting.

Earlier this year I sent her some irises and she returned the favor by sending pavonia.  Then this fall I sent her orange day lilies and in lieu of plants she sent me canned goodies.  They arrived yesterday while I was gone.  I found the box in the vestibule when I got home at 8 o'clock last night.

Thank you HolleyGarden!  What a treat these will be.  If you love to smell the roses, you will have to visit her blog.  You can almost get their lovely scent from her posts.

Well, how sweet of you! What glowing compliments - I'm blushing! I really appreciate your gifts of plants, and your friendship. I can't wait to see your irises and daylilies blooming in my garden this spring. They are gently tucked away, sleeping. I hope they're having sweet dreams!

What a great gift. What is Blackberry Frambois? Never heard of it. I will have to check HolleyGarden out. BTW I posted the cabbage roll recipe on Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard.

Now that is what I call a nice gift. :-) What makes it all so special is that you both give "from the heart" with items that speak to you.
