Several weeks ago, my garden blogging friend, Anne, at NikkiPolani, sent me an envelope filled with these pressed flowers from her garden. Included, too, were dried persimmons, which have long since been devoured. I was so touched by this lovely gesture. Anne knew that I was finding it hard this fall saying goodbye to my garden.
Today I received a lovely envelope in the mail from Kylee, another garden blogging friend, from Our Little Acre. Inside I discovered little plastic bags carefully packed and labelled with an amazing variety of seeds. What a treat just in time for Christmas. Now I can begin dreaming about where I will plant them all come spring.
There is something so magical about holding in one’s hands seeds and flowers from faraway friends’ gardens.
I continued to dig in the envelope and look what I found – gorgeous-coloured yarn that will make a wonderful scarf. A girl can never have too yarn stashed away! Life is good.
A happy holiday to everyone and may all your dreams and wishes for a happy and healthy new year all come true!!
