A heart-warming story of true Brug Love!! :)

sibhskylvr((Mike) Arkansas)November 10, 2009

In late September - early October, I received an email from Matt! He had a 'Rothkirch' for sale! I had other priorities, which concerned the amount of dollars Matt was asking for it, going elsewhere. Lonny & Kim decided they would purchase it! Deal with Matt was struck! I figured 'What the heck! Down the road, maybe I could get a cutting from it, right??' :)

To make a long story short - Lonny, after caring for the 'Rothkirch' for so long, came carrying it to my house today! He was my 'Secret Santa!' lol! I couldn't believe it! He also brought me a 6' banquet table which I needed for the plantroom! And says 'there's more coming!' I have no idea what's going on with Lonny & Kim! lol!

Best 'Secret Santa's' one could have had! :) Thank you both!! My day could not have been better, unless I had won the Powerball!!

And Lucy - I guess dreams DO eventually come true! :)

As you can see - 'Rothkirch' has HIS place in the living room window! And now I'm leaving for work & thinking, I'd much rather be home with 'Rothkirch' & friends! :))

Lonny just couldn't wait. LOL. He was exited as you. The little booger. Guess I am going to have to hog tie the both of you. You are just going to have to wait for the rest of your christmas package. :) Yes there is more.

Who doubts now that the spirit of which Santa represents symbolically (our first big lesson of what an analogy is) exists!

Mike you spoiled brat...you must of been a really good boy! And we all THINK you are!
Merry Christmas -Sandy

Hey!!!!!!!

What happened to all of the leaves on my baby?

Just kidding. She looks alright. Just give her plenty of light and remember to keep her on the dry side.

Congrats again Mike! Glad you finally got one. And glad we were able to work something out.

Congratulations, Mike. I have a Rothkirch cross here, and I love her. Lovely form. Lovely fragrance. A true Brug lover's gift.
