Fast forward a few weeks. I received a text from this lady one day at work asking if I still had any Palmer Sedum up for grabs, and if I did, could I leave some on the porch and she'd leave money. Recalling that I already told her a few times when we met that I'd be happy to give it to her, I realized that if she was offering to pay that I should just let her. The funny thing was, my devotion that morning had been about realizing you "can do" something. It asked the reader what was it that others were always encouraging them that they could do, but yet you couldn't grasp. That was what prompted me to say "okay" to the thought of taking money for my succulents.
I couldn't decide whether to sit out 4 or 5 of the 4-inch pots I had started weeks before. It's been so hot here that I wasn't happy with the size of them, so I settled on 5. I set them out in the morning with a note thanking her and came home to a $10 bill tucked under the mat with a thank you note to me!
I was thrilled! She got a bargain of a deal, and I was pleased to have had the opportunity.
I know what you mean...it was a good deal, and both of you were thrilled! Awesome! It is a pretty plant. Not sure I've ever seen it before...sedum doesn't grow well here, sadly.ReplyDelete
Great that you found something you were both happy with. I love how generous plant enthusiasts are, so many of of my favourite plants were cuttings, or gifts from others. Something, like yourself, I now like to continue by offering cuttings to anyone who visits my garden.ReplyDelete
This is one of my favourite sedums, and is hardy for me in the UK without problems.
What a pretty Sedum!ReplyDelete
this one looks pretty, I need to get some for myself too.ReplyDelete
I wish all people were as kind as you are.
That is so great! Fellow plant lovers are some of the best people. I don't think I have that sedum and it sure is pretty!!ReplyDelete
