Going Home .....

In this section of the blog I want to try and keep track of the plants that go home with me. You have no idea the amount of restraint it takes not to turn around and sign my paycheck back over the nursery every two weeks.
The family gives us a very generous employee discount but I still would have nothing left if I bought all that I want......I tell myself that in reality I will spend just as long enjoying certain blossoms etc. seeing them at work as I will at home (right? right?).

I have some patches of the purple Viola and I just love this sweet little pink one. Ideally I would be buying 3 or 4. One problem that goes with the above paragraph is that nursery workers often end up planting one of this and one of that.....plant collector yards.

I've seen the purple but not the pink. I don't think I could have resisted it either. It just wouldn't do for me to work in a nursery.

I hope it is still there on Monday! I didnt actually remember to TAKE it home with me and then I was home sick least it was raining and we are closed Sundays.

I work at a nursery here in San Jose and understand the wanting to take plants home. I know one of your fellow employees, Kate, she use to work at the nursery where I work now (Almaden Valley Nursery). I am enjoying your blog!

Hi Ferne! Do you have a blog? I have heard of Almaden but I never get that way...Kate isn't at the nursery anymore.
