A very thoughtful gift

I came home from work to find a postcard from the Royal Mail saying that there was a parcel waiting for me at the depot.
The note saying"Live Plants" made all of the staff laugh and I thought that I ought to say they were garden plants, daises in fact.

Inside was this lovely card. Inside is a detailed list of what was in the parcel.

They were all very carefully packed inside, a work of art really and due to this all of the plants survived their trip from Yorkshire.

Carol very kindly offer to send some Ox- eyed daisies when I mentioned in a recent post that I have been looking for some. Little did I know that they would need travelling companions which included:

London Pride

Iceland Poppies

Perennial Poppies - Red

Perennial Foxglove

Black Hollyhock



Very much a generous gift which I am putting in pots to establish and then into the garden. Everything has grown really well in the garden over the past 12 months, so hopefully this time next year I will, at last , be on my way to having the little cottage garden that I would very much like to look after.

Thank you soooo much Carol. I still think that it is gestures like this from a lovely person who I have never actually met sets blogger users and visitors apart from other social network sites.

My hubby and I are very grateful.

Poppies are one of my most favourite flowers but they seem to be notoriously difficult to grow in a garden (as compared to wild fields). I'll come back and see how yours will do. If you are successful, I'll definitely consider trying out your supplier.
Good luck!

I had poppies in my garden at my last house and regretted not bringing a few with me, so I am hopeful that these will take to my current garden.
These plants were very kindly sent to me from a lady who visits my blog.

You are very welcome, I get a lot of pleasure reading lovely blogs like yours, Andrea, and it is nice to be able to say "thank you". I hope they all thrive in your garden.
