early birds...

pagan(8b)June 20, 2007

being a late bird, I wasn't able to get any roses from Ashdown. When those guys have a sale, they REALLY have a sale! Happy for them that the sale did so well... (stiff upper lip and all that!)

On the other hand, you won't be out there in 90 degree heat digging planting holes.

Oh Pagan, I'm sorry! Who did you want really badly? Maybe someone isn't as attached and can give you their spot.

It was h*ll though - roses started disappearing left and right - out of carts, out while you typed the credit card number in! I got a little miffed, I must say: my 2 favorites left while I was paying for them! And it would have been HAD payed for them except for a software glitch. Fun stuff.

'course now I want them more still, lol.

Next time I'm going to try to figure out how to get their e-mail texted to me on my phone from my inbox! It's a jungle out there ;]

If it's any consolation, their stock was darned cleaned out to start with and there weren't many available for sale.
