Hello Joy and everone,

Well Christmas is over but there are many other celebrations coming up for us all and for all sorts of reasons.

Joy, I loved the way your article was written ... as if your gift suggestions were at the foot of the Christmas tree! Clever indeed.

In today's frenetic world there seems to be so little time to communicate with depth and care and understanding and all and all.

One of my all time favourite Latin sayings is BIS DAT QUI CITO DAT which translates to 'He-She gives twice who gives quickly.'

There is much to say about this but my favourite gift to give AND receive is a piece of me to someone else and a piece of them to me. Just spending quality time with them in conversation is a gift in itself. Giving of oneself is a formidable gift anyway.

Running my site and forum on BOL is another way of communicating too. Is it a gift in this sense - who can say, but I love doing it anyway.

Hope I have been able to articulate my thoughts properly!

Cheers now

Hi Leslie, many thanks for your feedback! As Easter approaches, if you gave 'gifts' to people then as well, what sorts of presents do you think they might like to receive at that time of year, especially from a Container Garden point of view? (JOY)

Lestie, sharing your joy and enthusiasm for container gardening *is* a gift to others. You always re-inspire me to container garden.

I love to give and receive garden gifts but I have learned to be careful when giving such gifts to others who do not understand them. It really is like giving a pet in a way because plants and container gardens require ongoing care for which many people lack the time or inclination.

I love nature gifts though and wonder if giving a terrarium is a better choice. They are self-contained and self-maintaining.

With all the material goods in the world and everyone having his own preference, style and taste, maybe it is better to go this route, Lisa. Time spent with others *is* a gift. The gift of one's time and attention is precious.

I'd much prefer that over some tangible item that will collect dust.
