Gardening Gifts From Friends, Part 1

Back in February, my friends and I started a fun little game called Pay It Forward. Ladies, you haven't forgotten, have you?

We promised to make and deliver something handmade or homemade to the first 3 people to comment on our posts. Susan, Rachel, and Ginger signed up on mine. Well, I am happy to announce that I am close to done with everyone's Pay It Forward gifts. They have taken so long because they are garden-inspired and inspiration takes time. At least for me it does. I hope to deliver all the gifts after Labor Day.

As for Ginger, she delivered my gift back in May. We met up for coffee at Sneaky Beans in Jackson, and we had a GREAT time. We talked about our gardens and just life in general for hours. She also gave me a few passalongs: a lemon cucumber seedling, nasturtium seedlings, and some crocisma divisions.

I LOVE the Pay It Forward gift Ginger made for me! Its is a cute little birdhouse, all decked out for the Ole Miss Rebels. I am so impressed with Ginger's handiwork on the birdhouse. It really looks fantastic with its bold colors and perfectly aligned peicing.

No feathered birdies have taken up residence quite yet. I love how it brightens up this corner of my garden. Go Rebs Go!

I have been thinking about how I need to sit down and make what I'm passing on. I know what it is, just have to make it. I think that will be a good Labor Day weekend project for me!

Cannot wait to see what you are giving to them!

Aww, I'm so glad it hasn't fallen apart yet!! Scott should get a lot of the credit for this project, as he cut all the wood with his table saw- I really just glued, nailed, sanded, and painted :)

Can't wait to see what you have in store for us!
