Re: RE: Money Makin' Time!

Auralie, Donna, Zem,
Thanks!  You know it's not the money itself that's important to me, but what
it represents.  Well, yes, I definitely can use the $, but a successful sale
also means that people like what I've done.  This is the most $ I've ever
made on this sale and I could have sold more.  I had put out one lone flat
of periwinkle that was a mess because it  accidently got dumped and tossed
back in the flat.  I didn't think anyone would want it, but there was a
slight altercation between 2 women wanting that $1.25 flat.  Beyond that,
though, the weather was perfect, the timing was perfect, my yard looked
fantastic IIDSSM.  Side by side red and white dogwoods blooming, Redbuds
budding like crazy, tulips blooming to perfection, loads of Spring
Starflower abloom, Pasque Flower blooming boldly.  Grape hyacinths and
mini-dafs, Wood Anemones, creeping phlox.  Many folks asking what *that*
plant is (Hellebore).  and, of course, I was able to sneak a moment a few
times to drag a few friends that stopped by to the backyard to show them my
Glaucidium.  The sale is hectic, but it is so very gratifying.

Sounds good to me, but my MG Nursery group scheduled a work session this
The garage is a wreck and I have to spend a day this week putting everything
back to normal, but it can wait.
