Yeah, caused by a virus, but like many plant viruses that yield cool
results, some get propagated.  That's how we get some of the dwarf
plants.

Congrats on the promo... hopefully they don't work you to hard.
So did
you bring the cats there or did they find out you were working
there and
decided they would be welcome with the cat lady LOL!



I stopped into our local HD yesterday. They need you! Lotsa
plants, too
bad no one watered them. Seems they expanded on how many plants
they are
carrying this year.


witches broom. Interesting plant when blooming, but the skids of
them
that weren't looked kinda weedy but it might have been thru
neglect.
Anyone grow this? Loved the ONE that was blooming. Sorry, that is
the
only name on the tag I remember....

I gave that (the collar idea) a lot of thought. I did get
Alphonse a
collar, but it's black with reflective silver trim. He is a long-
haired
kitty -- white with black spots and a huge black tail. He
sometimes lays
on
the checkstand and plays with the customers while they are
attemptingn to
take merchandise out of their baskets. We have had only one
complaint
since
the cats moved in last fall.

Congrats! That's wonderful about the promotion.
The HD near my house is closing, but we have another across town.

Great about the cats. Do they wear orange collars?

My good friend and sometimes supervisor at The Home Depot has
been
transferred
to Lompoc, CA. Actually, her husband has been transferred, and
she is
going
with him. The result is that I will be the new livegoods
manager for
the
store. I know from experience that the paperwork part of the
job will
only
involve following a predetermined protocol. The really fun part
is
working
with all those plants and the customers who come to buy them.
For the
past
two years we have gotten all our annuals from a Tennessee
grower, and
this
year a lot of them were grown at the greenhouses of my good
friend, and
former
employer, here in LaGrange. In fact, I met Lynda Young at
Sunnycreek.
It's
owner is also the regional salesmanager for Pope's, which is in
Merryville,
TN. I know my new position will be a good fit because I already
know
all
the
vendors, and I've met the growers, too. I'm looking forward to
having a
very
good time. I think I told you all about the cats that had come
to live
at the
HD garden center. Well, one in particular has become a real
celebrity.
He
greets all our customers, and they have donated lots of food.
Everybody
at
the store likes the cats, and the employees donated enough
money to get
the
male neutered . This Wednesday the little female, who was a lot
shyer,
and
harder to tame, than her littermate, is getting spayed thanks
to more
employee
contributions. The Animal Protection Association in Memphis only
charged
$40
to neuter Alphonse and give him his basic shots. Hermione will
only
cost
$45.
I am very grateful. The cats saved the store several thousand
dollars
in
mouse and bird damage over the winter.
