Thanks to Jane over at Small but Charming, I've been ordering flowers direct from a wholesaler in California. I don't order a lot, but if something is a good price and doesn't weigh too much, I order up!
Last week, the huge - est bunches of jasmine arrived. I've never seen such gorgeous jasmine. The stems have a lot of flowers, but they don't hang down lifeless: they float above and around the arrangements like angels. The fragrance is....heaven.
It seems we're not the only ones who love it.
This is the closest the rabbits get to the outdoors. California treats.
Violet has glaucoma and a cataract. The Vet suspects it's from an old eye injury. I usually like to show her right-side only, but she was so clearly posing for me I couldn't not post this photo.
This is my last day alone at the shop!!! So much has happened since my last crabby post.
I advertised for another Intern. I had some good applicants and a sour-puss guy who said "sure, I'll sweep the floor, empty the trash and work for nothing so I can have the privilege
of working in your shop". He's probably been looking for a job for a long time. o. well.
Our new Intern is now our new employee after rocking the day before Easter. Susan is for Saturdays and she can whip up corsages in no time.
We have another driver for the Spring. Victoria's great. She can heft the trash and recycling and with her GPS she whips around unknown towns and the City like a champ.
The shop is being painted this week by us, and by the talented Tom Driscoll on Sunday. Rabbits are going into the basement Saturday night until Monday to avoid fumes.
