I have a dear, sweet friend whom I have never met in person.  Amazing, isn’t it?  She lives in Canada and we email, facebook and mail packages back and forth across the border.  She is an amazing person and has a truly pure spirit, if you know what I mean.  She has sent me amazing gifts – REAL Maple Syrup, cookbooks, chocolate, picture frames – you see what I’m talking about.  Well, this last pkg. was all about gardening.  See for yourself.

which I promptly hung my hat on … ( I had been looking for something for just this very thing.

and she also sent these cuties

Thank you, Josee’, my dear sweet friend.
