98 It’s Coming… – Driving Miss Viola

I purchased it regionally 5 years in the past from El Dorado Nursery which tends to usher in uncommon vegetation.

Again in my silly years I had the extra frequent yellow-flowering Paper Bush. It lasted a number of years earlier than I killed it by transplanting it from a pot to the bottom. Very like my Daphnes, it didn’t like this in any respect and simply up and died on me. However ohhh was it attractive.

6. The Annual Reshuffling of The Pots

Earlier than spring comes, I’m all the time shifting pots, shuffling them right here and there and again once more. Then on repeat.

This annoys my husband to no finish as he has to assist me with the massive heavy ones.

(For some cause, ever since I purchased my work van, my purchases have develop into bigger and bigger. Hmmm…)

Lately I purchased a really giant, very heavy pewter pot at my native Inexperienced Acres. I’d had my eye on it for greater than a yr and will by no means perceive why no one snatched it up.

May it have one thing to do with its measurement and weight?!

Someday I used to be standing subsequent to the pot, hugging it like I do most pots I need however can’t determine if I ought to pay the asking value.

I didn’t realize it, however the man who buys pots for Inexperienced Acres noticed me hugging this pot.

So he comes up and startles me. “It wants a house. You can purchase it,” he says.

“Not at this value,” I inform him.

“It’s been right here for 2 years,” (which I already knew), “and I actually wish to do away with it.”

“How dangerous do you wish to do away with it?” I say. “Give me deal and I would take it—however it needs to be higher than my common low cost.”

“Oh…I can’t go decrease than that,” he says.

“Effectively, I assume you actually don’t wish to do away with it.” And I take my arm off the pot.

He says, “I might ask higher administration for approval to decrease the low cost for you.”

“Okay,” I say. “You strive that, however I’ve to depart now. Simply in case….right here’s my card. Name you will have any luck.”

My subsequent cease was Dwelling Depot, and whereas there, the pot purchaser referred to as to say he might decrease the value from $500 to $400.

I had bought comparable sized pots from different distributors for $400, so I knew how low Inexperienced Acres might go.

“Deal,” I stated and went again for the pot.

Effectively the factor is big and it took some effort by employees to get it safely into my van.

I took an image of it which I despatched to my pretty husband. “Get the backhoe prepared,” I informed him. “‘Cuz right here I come.”
