My Horticulture Dreams
I've been spending a little too much time (and money) at Cactus & Tropicals. It's a little too close to my house, and my kids love going there, they get to "pet" the fish, and they love the fountains. It was a great place to get teacher gifts, and shower favors, and more indoor plants (since MarySue and I took care of the outdoor plants earlier in the season). So last time I was there I had an epiphany that when I retire from my full-time current job (of SAHM) in like 24 years, I want to work at C&T or be a horticulturist/landscape architect. I know, I know I change my mind A LOT about what I want to be in my next "life" from Law School, to B School (CEO dream), to artist, but with 24 more years work experience in my own little yard, and visiting gardens wherever I can, and MarySue's expertise and guidance, and an advanced degree in either horticulture or landscape architecture (Utah State Aggie?) maybe I can pull off this dream. Impressively, most if not all of C&T's employees have these amazing degrees. Anywhoo, just wanted to share my latest whim. Oh, and a Huntington Garden Cherry Blossom Photo (which I want to be my blogs background if I ever figure that out) & some plants from C&T.
