Alchemilla, Pulsatilla

Dear Very Mary,

I am remiss. I am chagrined that I am remiss. You are a dear and generous correspondent, and you have not been thanked for the last most joyfully received little lagniappe. You, of all people, have not been thanked.

Very Mary, your stamped garden tags are divine. I can't wait to fabricate little hangers for Alchemilla, Pulsatilla, Kerria, Rudbeckia, Allium, Astilbe and Loosestrife. It's poetry - read them aloud. Alchemilla, Pulsatilla.

But best of all? The necklace you sent along for my daughter. It's perfect. Every little girl needs her name on things, lots of things, and the tiny blue bead is nearly the color of her eyes. Did I say perfect? It is.

Thank you, Very Mary, for the little treasures you send our way from time to time, and I promise that my thank you notes will be more timely in the future. I love having you as a pen pal.

Abashedly yours,

Magpie

Those garden tags almost make me want to start gardening. Or, rather, buy them for my husband, who gardens.
