You Sell Happiness

This election season has gotten me a little depressed.

I suspect I’m not alone in this mindset.  We’ll leave it at that.

Luckily this past week’s cooler weather got me in the mood to plant.  So I found a Garden Center brimming with a yard full of beautiful, neat & tidy looking plants.  I happily pulled out my credit card and began dreaming of where these new acquisitions would look best.

The ground is hard here & filled with many rocks.  I cleared a new area and labored for hours just digging three holes.  Then I meticulously spun the plants so that perfect face would be visible from my porch. With their fresh blanket of mulch, my smile grew wide as I sat on the porch with my well earned beer enjoying the new view.  It was the most satisfying moment I’d experienced in awhile.   Complete & utter happiness…. from the simple process of putting some new roots in the ground.

So my takeaway is this.  I had to visit several Garden Centers before I found one well stocked for fall.  People NEED you this election season.  Please make sure your Sales Area is filled with plants because

Plants = Happiness!
