Barbara00 Just checked. Hurray! Hurray! You are in and left Capital Heights and are on your way to your local sort station, so you may be getting delivery today or tomorrow. I know you and Blue are in the middle of this new round of snow storms. So keep your eyes open for it.

You either traveled with Blue or said an extra day or so keeping BrendaVR company before she flew out so she wouldn't be lonely. Hilarious!

I so happy, finally that all the piggies accounted for. Thumbs up Thumbs up

BrendaVR Later this week when I run up to corner store will stop at PO and have Jessie run your number through and make sure you still not laying on a beach somewhere and have flown the coop heading up north.

Supposedly we can't track packages once they leave US but postal service is able to track them. Not sure how many hours it takes to fly to your area, but gonna give it a few days to fly, land and be sorted and maybe than I can find out exactly where you are up there. You a coming. Hurray!

Brenda, I don't have seeds for the flowers you like, but I have lots of vegetable seeds, so if you see anything on my list that speaks to you, let me know. It's super easy for me to mail things to you.
Grazie a tutti,

Morning all! I am praying Brenda gets her seeds. I have my fingers, legs and eyes crossed.

I have been looking up Crickets Plant. I cannot find anything. I had never heard of the Cricket Plant before. I will send an email to the Extension Office Horticulturalist. He may be familiar with the common name.

Anita.... what does it say on the package? Anything besides Cricket Plant.

Hey when ya get from 1 to 1 and bottom of the barrel ya never know what you might get. Surprise. Hilarious! As long as it doesn't grow up into something like Little shop of horrors movie, ya doing ok. Rolling on the floor laughing

Yep. me too. At least she on her way now. Will probably be another week before it gets to her. I hate that it takes long haulers so long to arrive.

Good news Arlene!!!!!! Big Grin

BrendaVR I checked to see how long it took Sorellina to arrive. Once she left Miami it took a day to get to the north and than a day to clear customs and than 3 days after that to be delivered. That was priority and your not, so it should just be a few more days longer than what t took her.

With arriving up there today, customs tomorrow , you just might get yours by this weekend. Crossing hoofs big time.

Let me apologize to everyone. I typed Cricket by mistake. My phone has that 'auto correct'. I meant to type Crocosmia. I was wondering why I was being asked about a Cricket plant. LoL

Ella, it's funny that the bottom of the barrel was the top of my list. LoL

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Glad that mystery is solved. I knew I had sent sent out a couple of bog plants and buggy eating seeds and sure didn't remember the name cricket.

Well, Anita that was a great way to get folks to hunting for something and exotic. Rolling on the floor laughing

You would think by now that auto correct would have plant names and plant terms loaded into it by now. I mean scientific names are universal. Confused

My phone is one huge 'BUG'. I send more messages with errors than messages without errors. LoL

I couldn't believe that I couldn't find any information about a Cricket plant. The Horticulture educator sent information on the Cricket Bat Willow Tree. LoL I have learned alot today

Had my neighbor picked up the seed package for me, since it delivered while we were out of town. Really received the package yesterday.
I was working yesterday and very behind my schedule. It was hard to not open the package when it was sitting right next to me. Finally I opened it, but just took a peek and went back working. Then, last night late at night I was sorting through all the goodies. Wow! So many wonderful seeds. Thank you all for sharing with me all the precious seeds. And, thank you piggies for the gifts/surprises.

Ella, there's nothing written on the package.

We're in severe drought because of no rain. It's cloudy and very cold today, but still no rain. I thinking maybe I should sow the ones that are drought-tolerant first. But, I want to plant them all. LOL!

Glad to see some more of you got your seeds.

Now just waiting on Danita and BrendaVR to get theirs.

Danita... You may want to call your local PO person and ask them if mail still backed up from storm up that way or not. Tell em you been waiting 16 days for a 2 day, package. Did you call and get a case number too?

BrendaVR I found your seeds. I forgot that I had to fill out a customs form for you too and so I went hunting and found the customs number, which I will cmail you in a few minutes.

Your seeds are loving the warm weather down in Florida. You went to Jacksonville, FL with the rest of the missing piggies, but where the other long haulers decided to fly out, you my dear have been sun bathing around the town. You just left Miami FL. today. Hopefully that means you are on a plane heading north and not going to play in the sun anymore.

Your seeds must know how cold it is up there and just want to soak up some more warmth before they hit your chilly weather. Usually once they leave Florida it takes another week or two to be delivered. That the bad news. Good news is your found and on the move at least.

I can't believe it too em three days to get you from the boarder of Ga, Florida down to the bottom. You must have wanted to visit Disney world pretty bad and all the other cool vacation spots.

Hehe!! Seeds after my own heart. Lets stay down here where its nice and warm...why would we want that cold!?!

No worries. They will make it.
Yes, it likely flies straight to TO then will take some time to be sorted/customs. I expect they should arrive late this week or early next week.... baring any further sunbathing. Whistling (although they are now calling for ice rain thursday so they may just turn around and head back to Florida if they see that) Rolling on the floor laughing

Keep calm and....keep making paper pots???

Okay, I am at home now and just opened my package. Oh my, it's so overwhelming! But thank you, EVERYONE for all your hard work and sharing! I am in seed heaven. Now, you'll have to excuse me because I'll be the rest of the evening sorting and drooling!

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Have fun Arlene!

Danita, just checked and you left the sorting facility so that means it on the way to your local PO. Probably around 9 or so usually when trucks start arriving at Po's from sort facilities scan should come up showing you being processed and sent out for delivery today. Big Grin

Danita Just called and talked to Debra. You in your local Po and will be out for delivery today so keep your eyes open.

BrendaVR Had you checked too. You done cleared the area down here and are on your way to the clearing area up north from Po update this morning. Probably won't be any update until they get to your package and clear it from your area and than it will finally be on its way to your house. So close, yet so far away.
