I said in my previous post that I had received my gardening by letter package yesterday.Anna over on Flowergardengirl blog organized this mammoth task. There was one recipient for each month we all sent our cards to Anna who then undertook to send all of them to that months lucky participant.It was my turn for this month and what a lovely bundle of gardening related cards etc I have received. My daughter remarked yesterday on seeing the contents of the package it is lovely to receive 'nice' post, no bills ,circulars, junk etc.We have lost the art of letter writing in this age of text and computers.
I received such a myriad of beautiful gifts, the rule being they should fit in an envelope!Handmade bookmark in cross stitch,coffee and cookies, magazines and material.Music, lots of seeds, bought and some saved from the writers own gardens, some of which I have already seen in flower on their blogs! The yard long beans I will have to Google!
Crafty stuff ,scented soap & handmade cards. I was amazed to see such lovely cards made from the bloggers own photos taken in their gardens.What a lovely way to show relatives and friends some of your treasures!Most of them also included postcards of their own areas which spread from Wiltshire in the UK to Nova Scotia, Canada and various parts of the U.S.
I will visit each of the blogs over the next few days and thank each and every one of you personally.A big thank you to Anna who is the next and last recipient.The bloggers who took part are listed below and as the weather continues cold and unsuitable for gardening maybe you would like to visit them and do some virtual gardening!
