I hinted at my odd gifting selections this year. My husband thinks I'm a bit tetched in the head.
First, I brought a bag of cooking persimmons, to pass around the room for those interested.
Next, I passed out some of these:
I bagged them, giving out two or three corms a piece. These "beauties" will grow up to be orchids, that grow best when ignored. My kind of flowers!
Finally, I went to this bin of harvested coxcomb.
The seeds look like bug poop. It's not. They're seeds. Really.
I bagged them with planting instructions on one side (scratch into the ground, full sun, ignore) and a photo on the other.
On a different note, I hear that my niece's birthday package arrived yesterday in Alaska. Her birthday is not until tomorrow, but she already got a peek at her card.
I quilted the snowflake, then embellished it with beads. I LOVE the effect!
