My new job!!!!

I have started working at A Garden on the Hilltop here in Brevard NC. It is a beautiful garden center with a full plant nursery! We have a shop with garden related tools and gifts and the yard is all shrubs and trees right now, but soon the perennials and annuals will be coming in! I have already used my "tab" to buy a Vitex Agnus-Chastus! Danger... let's see if I actually make it home with a paycheck! I am working holding down the fort for my boss, the owner John, a very nice man and have a lot of leeway as far as arranging plants and planting in our permanent gardens, and I will also be doing landscape design for our landscape company! YAY!
