90 Solana Succulents – Driving Miss Viola

Right here’s a flip-flop story that has nothing to do with succulents or cacti however you’re going to get why I’ve to inform it.

A shopper employed me to offer her yard a makeover. For the redesign, I needed to do a “take-off”—which suggests making detailed measurements of the yard. (Worse job ever and I might inform you tales…however not now…)

So I’m on my method to the yard by means of the storage, and there was the shopper’s husband on a treadmill. He pointed the best way to the aspect door and as I’m about to step by means of it, one thing sticks to the underside of my flip-flop. I regarded all the way down to see a type of rectangle pads which have thick sticky goo and are used to catch rats. It coated the entire backside of my flip-flop.

I hate it when awkward stuff occurs in entrance of purchasers, however the husband hadn’t seen so I shortly ducked outdoors. I attempted to tear the sticky entice off utilizing my different foot. However you get the image, proper?…Now the rattling factor is caught to each flip-flops!

I’m pondering, “What do I do?” and, “Fast earlier than the spouse reveals up!”

I step out of the flip-flops and peel the sticky entice off them, which I toss subtly again by means of the door, put the flip-flops on and proceed towards the yard. Properly my toes go ahead however the flip-flops don’t. They’re caught to the concrete walkway.

Now I’m standing in my naked toes laughing at myself, plus it’s 100-degrees out so I’m sweating like loopy on prime of all of it.

I bend down and peel the flip-flops off the concrete then push the soles into some mulch so that they received’t be sticky anymore. I put them on and proceed down the stroll, however I hear this “crunch, crunch, crunch.” I look again and I’ve left a path of mulch.

I’m dying laughing now, however after I get to the garden the spouse comes out so I placed on my skilled face. I proceed to take measurements, all of the whereas, I’m wiping my toes—like a canine after peeing—to erase the remnants of entice and mulch.

Properly I needed to confess, didn’t I? And my shopper says, “Oh my granddaughter does that on a regular basis. She forgets the entice is there and lets out a terrifying scream and we all know instantly what she’s finished!”

Oh for plant sakes, put the rattling rat entice away from the door, Folks!!!

I really like flip-flops, Readers, however they do have a manner of creating bother!

Now again to Solana Succulents and a another excuse I’ll not have made a purchase order that day. Truthfully, I don’t suppose Mr. Moore cares if anyone buys his crops. Possibly he doesn’t wish to half with them. Right here AP and I have been—a few potential prospects—and he didn’t present as much as say hello or ask if we wanted assist (or band-aids) till we have been nicely into the thick of the recent mess.

However I’ve to say, he tends to his crops very well. Have to be some kind of Succulent Whisperer. You’d be amazed how he could make such harmful crops produce stunning flowers like these…
