Re: RE: Money Makin' Time!

Kitty: I've said it before, but I'll say it again...you are an amazing
woman!! I'm glad the recognition you so obviously deserve for being a
dedicated gardener pays off in this way for you...both in terms of $ and
for that more gratifying sense of a pride in a job well done. Bravo!

Subject: Re: [CHAT] RE: Money Makin' Time!

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