And a special thanks for the sunflowers from the Whitingers!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Not today, here. Maybe tomorrow will be the lucky day. Smiling

(I was going to say that if they are just now making it to other parts of TX, it'll be awhile before we should see them up north...but now that there's a PA arrival... Blinking Confused )

I was surprised at how fast my package got to Dave -- now that we're in the middle of the holiday mail stampede, it will be interesting to see how long it takes to get my seeds; the flat-rate packages really do seem to travel pretty quickly! As long as it gets here within a couple of months it will be in time for my earliest seed starting Smiling

Got my seeds today. Thanks to everyone. Thanks Dave for the extra packet.

All the seeds packets are so well organized and labeled. I apologize for being at the bottom of the learning curve. I wasn't up on how to do the nice labeling nor on how to clean seeds of all the chaff. Thanks for letting me participate and learn from you all.

Ohhhhh -- now I am so jealous that so many people have gotten their seeds!! Green Grin!

Lynne - I felt the same way last year when I did the Piggy Swap for the first time (my first time for any kind of group swap). So, I know what you're sayin', but don't feel bad about it -- everyone here was "new" at one time (and no one was born knowing this stuff)! Smiling

Lynne---if you noticed my seeds, I used masking tape for labels and state upfront that I don't always get the chaff out. Been doing it for years, never had a complaint. Most people are just glad to get seeds to plant. The chaff doesn't inhibit the seed to germinate.

I'm so jealous of all of you, lol! Sticking tongue out I really hope mine comes today. The unfortunate thing is that shortly after we got a new driver, our normal delivery time went to about 3 hours later, prolonging my anticipation on days when I'm hoping/expecting packages. I miss my old delivery driver and time. Sad

It's so much for for me watching all of your reactions!
That's what we felt like- It's Christmas! Except we were also little elves putting together all those boxes. Fun, Fun!

Everyone did such a great job!

I had so much fun looking at all the different shapes and colors of the seeds. Each waiting for spring so they can spring to life. Lovey dubby
