Hi! I have been starting to think about Mother’s Day and spring birthdays. I came up with an idea that I thought I would share, in case anyone else is thinking that direction.
We just read the Trellis and the Seed by Jan Karon during our 106 Days of Creation study. I love that book! I can’t say enough great things about it! Thanks, Sonya, for the recommendation!! I was thinking that it would be a great book to give to a few women in my life that love gardening. So here is my plan: I am going to buy the books from Amazon (about $11 each for hardcover with free shipping over $25….paperback is cheaper.) Then, I am going to buy some packets of moonflower seeds. Last, I am going to find some pretty china teacups at garage sales. I am going to include all three items in my gift- the book, the moonflower seeds, and the china cup. I think it will be a hit!
Beautiful idea, as an avid English country gardener – I can tell you such a gift would be wonderfully welcome. I have read the book and it is tremendous. Jennifer you have come up with a truly thoughtful gift – don’t forget to add a teabag….most gardeners love a tea break.Jodie AppleParticipant
Great idea! Little girls I think would find this a neat gift too. When we read the book last year, our 9yo daughter wanted to go out right away and buy the seeds to plant. We, too, have tea breaks and both our daughters think it’s the grandest thing ever!wearejenandkevParticipant
Adding tea is a great idea!! Thanks for the idea!
Great idea! Thanks!
