there are three packets of seeds, morning glories, violas, and sweet pea. also included is this wonderful plaque depicting a vintage seed packet. i think this will go in my potting shed. i am still thinking about where is the best place to put it.
i love it! then at my standing lunch date with rachel, she had received this in the mail from esty. esty is an online shop for all kinds of artistic handmade goodness. it is a little bag for items for your lunch or i put my sunglasses in it. it is adorable rachel thank you so much.
how exciting! i love the simplicity of the packaging. i can't wait to open each one and plant them in the ground. it feels very ambitious to have so many seeds in my possession. i will need lots of energy and time.
also today i got some books i had ordered online. both were recommended by sherry @ q-corner.blogspot.com/ i haven't even cracked them opened yet but i can't wait to read them. but i plan on drinking something hot and peeking into them tonight. i bought an extra copy to share with my daughter rachel. "a guide to green housekeeping" shows ways of doing natural cleaning and using what you have on hand. "roses love garlic" is another companion planting book that i wanted to read.
by the way, rachel my daughter is thinking of starting her own blog. i highly recommend it maybe you bloggers could give her some encouragement.

I am a happily married woman of 27 years. I lived in Florida for 40 years and moved to Tn in 2000. We lived in the city of Brentwood for 6 years and move to Leiper's Fork in May of 2007. We have been in the country for about six years now on a 7.24 acre farm. We call it Dash Home Farm. Da-for Dave and Sh-for Sharon. We live in a victorian farmhouse made to look old(it acts old). We love the community of Leiper's Fork and the quaintness of the town (no lights).

" The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak. "
"whatever we are waiting for -- peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance -- it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart."
