    I appreciate that. Plants come to me to DIE. I am the worst gardener ever. But I always keep trying. One time I’ll make it through a season without killing something 🙂

      I remember your post about backyard gardening… I too, am very much stumbly-and-bumbly when it comes to gardening… but I’m trying! And hey, you’re practically a farmer now! You win the backayard wars by million. It’s a Coop coup! (I’m hilarious … 🙂 )

    What a lovely neighborhood you live in. I am not sure why, but this post brought a little tear to my eye. I can only imagine that Edie appreciates seeing a young mother and her beautiful girls admiring her flowers. She probably smiles to think of your girls playing in her driveway with her cat. Time goes by so fast, doesn’t it? She was probably the young mom walking through her neighborhood with her kids once upon a time and now, she pays it forward, sharing some of her garden with you. I hope you have a wonderful mother’s day!

      Oh Amy, you are such a sweetheart. I love that you got a little tear in your eye during my post. She’s really a darling lady, and I think that she enjoys talking about gardening things with someone who is so obviously in awe of her gardening talent.

      Happy Mother’s Day, lady! 🙂

    That is so wonderful, such a cute post! I love plants and flowers, but have no knack for keeping them alive, or how to arrange them. How awesome to have a neighbor that is willing to share her talents with you!

      It is pretty fantastic to have a neighbour willing to hand-deliver plants and advice right to the door. I was happily surprised! 🙂

    What a lovely gesture! Usually gardeners have lots to share, because when perennials find a good spot they really take off. But it’s really special that she took the time to write the helpful and encouraging notes. I’m sure those plans will do great with you. Good luck!

      I was really taken aback by her generousity. I know that she’s a part of a gardening circle, and perhaps she’s accustomed to just digging something up and sharing it with a friend, but I come from the land of nurseries and Home Depot. I buy my plants, and then pray that the investment was worth it.

      I’m so happy to have found a gardening friend in my neighbourhood. It was unexpected… and I feel very lucky!

    Love it!! Great note! Those coneflowers are my absolute favourite…. they would look wonderful planted next to some ornamental grasses or even lavender… she is right – gardening is pretty easy and fun. I was obsessed (who me, obsess much) with learning about perennials when we started our first flower garden 12 years ago and am amazed every spring with the information I learned back then comes back to me… I bet you will do a fabulous job with these little plants. Now veggies, that is something I haven’t mastered yet.

      Krista – are you psychic? I actually planted them next to a lavender plant. Granted, I know nothing about growing lavender or really any plant, so I’m hoping that they both just flourish on their own! 😉

      Veggies are something that I’ve had medium-success with. I’m hoping that this year I get a small harvest – it would do my gardening pride a lot of good! 🙂
