It's a Dog's Life - Part 2

Late nights, snow in the Prairies, broken down semi-trucks, tipped over container gardens, irate customers, erroneous orders, crop failures and general mayhem seem to be the way we roll around the greenhouse during the big spring rush........it's chaos.......it's mayhem.......it's a dog's life

All of our peeps are working their TAILS off this season......

late nights eating Pizza or Samosa's are an ordinary occurance these days. Some people think that owning a greenhouse and working in the flowers is like living in a dream.
All plants all the time!
What could be better than that?!
I am so glad that I get to meet so many people in my line of work who are excited about plants and flowers. There are some people out there who can't get enough of it. Some of my blogger peeps even set up germinating tables in their BEDROOM to make enough space for their garden addiction........right my darling sister ROSA?!

And they are so right about how much FUN this industry is!
Sure, it's frought with unwanted bugs, root rot, fertilizer deficiencies and such......But it is THE most dynamic business anyone could ever have the pleasure of working in! Now, I'm off to pour myself a glass of wine, soak my feet and lick my wounds from a most ridiculously tough week. Oh yes..........and I'm gonna go COUNT MY BLESSINGS!
