She mailed the pincushion on August 8th and I just received it yesterday. That's much better timing than the 3-1/2 months it took for Nathalie's cards to arrive from the States.
Even better timing was the arrival of a packet of seeds that Jan mailed from Colorado on September 10th.
Prairie Coneflowers a/k/a Mexican Hats that she posted about on July 23rd apparently grow wild in New Mexico and are drought tolerant. The description she included also says that they are easy to establish and naturalize readily, so I am hoping I can get them to grow here.
Thanks Julie and Jan! Best wishes for a wonderful Wednesday! Friendship blessings, Tammy
