I'm Joy - PNWJoy (formally Joyful_Joy) for those of you who have been around here for a number of years.
It's been a long time sense I've traded plants or seeds.
I think it was 2001 or 2002 the last time I did a trade. Too Long!
I had some health issues but I'm feeling stronger and getting the itch to jump in with both feet again. LOL
I still have alot in my gardens, I just haven't added much to them for a long time.
Looking forward to trading with you all again come this spring.

RE: Looking forward to trading again in spring

Joy, welcome back! I couldn't wait til spring and I'm already doing some trading. Our winter was so mild here that things are already up. My daffs are already blooming! And I'm just too impatient to wait til spring. But I mostly trade for daylilies and irises who really won't mind that it's not spring.

What will you be trying to gather for your gardens this year?

Thank you for the welcome back Butterflychaser!
I'll be looking to trade for almost anything I don't already have, plus a few things I had but lost. :-(
I remember how addictive trading can be so I'll probably go overboard... But oh what fun!
We're pretty mild here right now, just wet. So I'll probably start trading again as soon as I see something offered that interests me. As soon as we get a dry day I'll head out and see what I have to trade. I'm sure I have a lot. :-)

oops! I just realized I made a mistake in my post above. I used to go by Joyful_flowers, not Joyful_Joy! LOL

RE: Looking forward to trading again in spring

Hey Joy, we have about 70 degrees today! Spring is here!! Again, probably temporarily. But I'll take what I can get. I'm working outside, painting the trim on the house and spray painting some wall decor and some chairs an antique gold color for my New Orleans garden.

I've been trying to trade, have some posts on both the seed and plant exchanges, but I guess most people are still invaded by winter. My sympathy to you folks!

I wanted to get my trading out of the way now. As soon as I can start rearranging gardens, I want to concentrate on that rather packing and mailing trades. So I've been trying to acquire what I'll need for some new beds I have planned.

Spring is coming!!! YESSSSSS!!!

Welcome back Joy! to GW and to the trading addiction.

I'm emailing you about a possible seed trade.
