  The job I have taken is a year-round position. It just tends more toward 
house plants in the winter. Two of the stores have greenhouses, and the 
other two only have space set aside for house plants. The area manager said 
we will do poinsettias at Christmas and maybe some Christmas trees. You can 
plant trees in your yard just about 12 months of the year so I would assume 
we'll be carrying them, too. It's going to be a real adventure. My friends 
cannot belive that I'm taking full time employment at my advanced age. I 
just told them maybe it's advanced for them, but I haven't noticed.
