Dear Cynthia:
                        I would like to trade seeds with you. I can offer
just now chilean bell flower (Lapageria rosea) a climber consedered one of
the prettiest flowers in the world, also I will send you a list of annuals
and perennials I am collecting now, (we are beginning our summer.
I would thank you very much if you could send me the following seeds:
Carrot "Thumbelina"
Hyssopus officinalis
Radish mix.
    I also have many seeds, so I think we can continue exchanging.
