open for business!
Tuesday, June 03, 2014
good morning--well its after june 1 so I am officially open. rob had last week off and he really did a heroic amount of work to help me get ready.
here is a shot of my beeyoutiful new retail area--still needs a little work--fenceposts need to be cut and capped--but it's absolutely exactly what I was hoping for :
and a day and a half of backbreaking work got my little house cleaned up and ready for visitors:
flags are out, fountains running, potted stock is mostly ready (a few things still recovering from transplant shock) and one of my two row extensions is full of new daylilies. we didn't get the 5.00 plant section moved--I will have to just sell out of it in the old location--but the new area is roughed out and I will fill it as summer goes along. then ALL of my retail will be up front, and the back garden will be closed to visitors.
have had a few customers already--old time friends--my favorite time of year when all my garden buddies come back to me. we'll see what the year brings. I told rob I think we have the cutest, nicest business that almost nobody comes to. my friend that runs bluebird house--the nearby bed and breakfast said she feels the same way about her place.
oh well--location is everything--we just have to do the best we can in the area where we live.
have a great day!
