They're here They're here . . .
Oh Joy Oh Rapture Oh Wonderful Day !!!
The procession of recently ordered plants (3 total orders) has begun, Bridgewood being the first. They came beautifully packaged with no damage what so ever. I (of course) documented everything like a proper parent should. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do !!! (pics below)
I spoke with Gary at Naylor who advised that the first of my two orders will be here tomorrow and the second they just shipped today.
So starting with today, I will have two more days of little brown boxes on my front porch. This honeymoon is getting better and better, new hostas virtually all week !!!
tee hee . . . there is a funny story concerning the second order I placed with Naylor, that only you, my fellow hosta geeks might enjoy.
The first order with Naylor was placed due to HH's post and increased activity on the Golden Meadows thread.
I switched over to the Auction and while only looking for Golden Meadows I ended finding 9 others that interested me (imagine that). None of them except GM were on my list . . . I am calling it coincidence that it also happened with my Bridgewood order.
So all is well and I am excited to be bidding and watching the auctions. I squared away the shipping and billing and was all set.
BUT THEN that sneaky Gary throws up his last Frisian Wavey Steel and I ran to the bathroom for fear of wetting myself . . . true story.
I immediately placed my bid and was the only one for almost the whole time, and then low and behold someone scooped it out from under me at the last minute (literally the last minute).
Convinced I was going to win the auction (ignorance is bliss) I had decided to "fill out" the order since the first round of auctions was already shipped by the time the Wavey Steel would be over. Gary disagreed with me when I told him I thought Wavey Steel would be lonely and ought to be shipped with some friends.
He laughed and I told him I would peruse the website and email him with the additional plants.
But then my world collapsed and I cried myself to sleep when I lost the auction for Wavey Steel. Determined not to get discouraged I decided to place the second order anyway.
No one likes a quitter !!
So now I have this lovely procession to await me for the rest of the week. Come friday after they are all potted up I shall put them all on the side porch and see how many more I can squeeze in before my ultimatum from Bf kicks in.
Thank you all for listening to my very dramatic long winded story.
