My package is mailed! Hurray!

No stress at all .... Well maybe a little. ..... well maybe a lot! *Blush* (mostly the packing)
But not now, this is the fun part. Rolling on the floor laughing

Can't wait to hear what everyone receives and see some pics. I am bad at pictures because I don't really enjoy taking them, but love to see them.

I'm really concerned about the weather. It's been >90 degrees everyday for the last several days. It's suppose to be slightly cooler towards the end of the week so I'm going to wait until Wednesday to mail out the package.

We've had pouring rain here for days. Deep Woods Off and still had a dozen mosquitos on each arm. To whomever, if one got in the box, have a bazooka ready. They are as big as dragon flys. nodding )

CRAP!!! Since I retired I've lost track of time! I thought I had another week to get mine mailed! Pretty sure I'm going to need to be one of the exceptions! Sorry, but I'll make it worth the wait, I promise.

ZZ,
I'm so glad you are happy. I had to do some searching to find a list for you that was current. You didn't have these listed.

A favorite combo in my garden is Paul's Glory, Hadspen Blue, and King Tut. I'll post a picture. You already had Hadspen.

Green Grin!
