ANNA ANSWERS GIFT QUESTION
It is not a good idea to give them anything that they sell at their vegetable / baked food stand. Especially baked goods. Ladies, myself included, get the wrong notion sometimes. Like if you brought baked goods, she might think you thought your baked goods were better than hers. I know that's not your thought, but that is how some of us ladies are. If you wanted to bake something, I would suggest a casserole that she could eat when she gets home from work. But, unless you know her personally, I think that is to big a gift for what she gave you.
The sachet would be nice. Only things you have to worry about those is if people have allergies or someone doesn't like the smell. Elmer does not like sachets or plants that have a heavy smell in the house. I say they sort of air the house. Elmer says they smell up the house. He was very happy when I got the greenhouse and got some of the plants out of the house. Like I said, also allergies are problems, especially this time of year. But I do think a sachet would be a nice gift. I would like it even despite what Elmer says.
Thing that might be nice to buy is a stationery. I don't mean the fancy that comes in boxes. I am talking about the pads that you can get in Walmart, Dollar General, Family Dollar or Dollar Tree. They have pretty pictures of flowers, or designs or animals, etc. on the top. Both Amish and Old Order Mennonite write letters a lot. We don't use computers. Sometimes you can sets with paper, matching envelopes and pens all in one. Those are nice too, but depending on the price.
Also, I think just giving her a thank you card would be nice. Just the thank you card. You could write a little note telling her how much you appreciate her giving you the flowers seeds and maybe tell how they were coming along. I think she would appreciate that the most.
I hope that what I wrote has given you some ideas.
Also folks, please keep the questions coming in. Elmer and I like suggestions on what to put in our posts.

Anna has the patience of Job with me. She gave me this post this morning and I don't know how I did it, but I deleted it by mistake. Anna was so kind to give me the post all over again. This time I set it to come on before she gave it to me, so I wouldn't do it again.
