Nancy, Who????

About a year ago I received a friend request on facebook from a girl named Nancy. The name was not familiar, neither were the pictures. At the same time I received a private message from "Nancy", I wish I still had it but it's gone. It went something like this........"I love your pictures and I think we have a lot in common. We don't know each other, we have never met but you know my neighbors, Debbie & Brad and another neighbor, Mark.....can we be friends??"

I am not sure if I have ever been more flattered. I said yes, of course.....and so the friendship began. We met in "real life" recently at Debbie & Brad's home. It was wonderful, we had an instant connection. She came to my home on Wednesday for a garden tour and some bird watching. She brought me some seeds from her garden and this......

Lavender
I planted it where she suggested!!!!
and also the seeds she brought from her Black Eyed Susans!!! She is a wonderful, thoughtful gardener. 

Thanks Nancy.....I am sooooo happy to know you!!!!
