I hope everyone had a great weekend...Mine was fairly busy, and that't why I didn't do any posts over the weekend.
I have recently made friends with a lovely lady called Sonia, so hello again Sonia. I feel compelled to put in a good word for her. I met Sonia through Freecycle..about 6 months back, I put in a request for some seedling trays and small seedling pots......Sonia answered my crys and came to my rescue giving me enough trays to keep me going and plenty of seedling pots too.....I recently put in a request on Freecycle again for some Bay Leaves off a tree, and some herbs and flower cuttings or seeds; I heard from Sonia again....offering me some herbs, and cuttings off a bay tree....
One amazing thing about Sonia is that I still haven't met her yet...Nope, we have never met, always exchanging goods through a family member because they live closer...Last time I picked up some herbs, I was slightly confused for a bit, because I got to talk to Sonia, not THEE Sonia, her sister-in-law....so I handed over some preserves for my new friend as an offering of thanks for the plants I was picking up....I know the rules of Freecycle include that gifts or goods should not change hands...but the person never knows that I am bringing goods if I receive something from them, it's just my way of saying, "Hey I appreciate your kindness and generosity, and would like to share something with you in return" .......Getting back on track....Sonia arranged for some Bay Leaves to be delivered to my house....I was so pleased with what I got, I hung them immediately, caring for the gift that I had just received.
Look at the lovely bounty of Bay Leaves I received from Sonia on Friday afternoon.
