There are a still a few of us left who’ve not yet given up on hand writing birthday cards, thank-you notes and garden variety friendly missives. That's because we love the gesture of a handwritten note - and we're pretty sure that no-one ever got a decent love letter by email. Still need another reason to take up the pen again? Here’s a pretty one. Winnipeg-based Botanical PaperWorks makes stationery embedded with North American wildflower seeds. When the recipient of your note has taken in your luminous prose, he or she can then plant the paper, and wait for a lush bouquet of Bird's Eye, Clarkia, Poppy and Snap Dragon to bloom.There are also cards with parsley, mint and basil seeds, so your correspondents can start an indoor herb garden - even in the dead of winter. Most of the products are tree-free, and are made with 100 per cent post-consumer waste. It's all available online.
