I had a feeling from our interactions through blogging and emailing that conversation would be easy with her, and I was right. We talked about gardening, blogging and family for a good 2 hours. Originally we had planned to possibly visit a nursery, but the weather was cool and rainy so instead this time we just talked.
We also had our very own plant swap. Each of us had admired plants on each others blogs and this was the perfect way to be able to dig up some plants and share our seeds with each other.
Linda brought me Siberian Irises, Wild Iris, Yellow flag iris and a Saxifraga 'London Pride'. She was so thoughtful and even brought my girls their own Sedums because she knows they like to help in the garden. I'm very excited to find places for all of them in my garden.
She also brought lots of seeds and made this pretty card. I love how she printed pictures of the flowers to put on the envelopes. I plan to winter sow all but the Poppies this weekend. Those I will save for a little longer and just direct sow them.
It's been so much fun getting to know other gardeners through blogging and I've been even luckier to actually get to meet some in person. Hopefully Linda will forgive my old and out of date directions and visit with us another time when there is more going on in my yard.
