Every now and then, I come across something too cool to keep to myself. This time it came in the form of a birthday wish. When I opened the envelope, I found this inside. It may look like a typical greeting card but it's more than that. Dozens of wildflower seeds are embedded in the paper, making the whole card a vehicle for planting. This particular card happened to include a really sweet message inside:
Hi Mom! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I love you and I hope you have a great day and a great year. You are an amazing woman. I am always delighted to hear about your many endeavors. If I ever beat you at Scrabble, it's because I over compensated...out of fear.

This card should have been planted last spring but I'm hoping the seeds will still germinate. Now it's just a matter of finding a place for my wildflower garden.
