The Most Beautiful Bella

Look. How. Sweet. This.Face.Is.This is Bella-
The beautiful Bella.
I'll bet you think I know her, don't you?
I'll bet you think that she is related to me..
Dead wrong!
She is going to be very surprised to see this here..
Because I didn't ask..
But....I forgot to say a proper
Thank You a few days ago.
And.... because I am a bit of a "thief"..
I "stole" her picture
because I want you all to know how
Very Dear She Really Is.
She mentioned she had a few seeds left
if anyone wanted to sign up.
I wanted-I signed up.
She delivered.
Now when most of my friends give me seeds
they just kind of thrust them into
a plastic bag and say ...
Here ya go..
Well...except for my friend, Patti,
from a gardening group..
Her presentations are pretty great.
But Bella?
Look what you sent...
Notice that I have cleverly
disguised both of our names.
Am I smart, or what?
Never mind...Well...I love lavender...
I smiled when I opened the envelope.
I smiled again when I opened the
tissue paper and saw

By the time I turned the little
packet over I was grinning right out loud.
The back of this sweet little seed packet
Flowers Feed The Soul
Hugs, Bella

Well, my dear,
Flowers MAY feed the soul
but you have fed
my heart!
YOU are one of the true treasures
in BlogLand.
ps...Just wondering...would you mind coming
here and, you know, like doing
ALL my gardening?
Please...please...I'll feed you and ply
you with music and food and
my little SweetCheeks and Company
can entertain you...
Huh? What do you mean you have
life to tend to?
Thanks anyway!
xxoo Diana

That's awesome! She went the extra mile and everyone appreciates that!!
When I wrap-up scarf orders, I try to give them that personal touch too. A little time goes a long way.
What a gorgeous girl! I hope she liked the surprise of being featured in your blog! :)

Thanks for another good post. I hate when I'm out of town and miss one!

Hi sweetie! I know exactly what you mean about receiving those special little gifts that are not only send with love, but packaged and filled with them as well! :) Bella was so very sweet to take the time to mail the seeds that way. Sure makes me feel like a lazy giver.......What an inspiration she is! (Just like you, dearie!) :)
