Wild Weather!!

The best part of my job is the people. the plants are awesome, but the people are special. It is the relationship with my friends that manage these garden centers that keeps me coming back. In one store, I have made a dear friend that does an amazing job with little help or support. Today, in winds that brought the temp down to 23*, I helped this sweet lady unload a couple of carts of tender annual plants. On the other side of the greenhouse, another lady was unloading a cart and SHE WAS DRIVING ME NUTS!!
She shuffled her feet and carried one flat at a time, acting as if she had all the time in the world. I tried to keep my eyes on my own cart, unwrapping and hanging the baskets as quickly as possible, but it was all I could do to not scream at this lady, "Pick Up Your Feet!!"
My friend, she probably never even thought about it. She is a patient and quiet soul.
I wish I was a little more Lilian. She is doing a tremendous job with her garden center! Dontcha think??

Pansies shrug off the cold and look so happy

The Bleeding Heart does NOT like the wind and cold....
                       Logged lots of miles today. Not a good hair day. Again.

    How lucky you are to work in a garden center! Do you bring any paycheck home?
