When escrow closed, and the papers were signed, Wendy got the keys from Lori. She immediately drove to the building, to her nursery.
As she parked the car, she realized she needed to decide on a name for her new business. Several names came to mind, but they weren’t quite right. She let go of her thoughts and stood by the car looking at the building in front of her. She wasn’t sure what kind of finished look she wanted for it. But forest green might be appropriate, and around the windows and over the door a cocoa color. The trim shape over the cocoa and on the two front windows would look like vines.
She moved away from the car and stood in front of the building for a moment and took a deep breath. She stepped forward and unlocked the door. At the counter she put down her purse and stood in the middle of the empty building. With her hands on her hips and a critical eye, she surveyed the space. The walls needed to be a pale green or maybe beige, allowing the dark green leaves of most plants to stand out. She could picture the pond area, not quite in the middle of the room, a little off center like her sketch. She sauntered around the building. She’d place small trees and shrubs around different areas so you couldn’t see everything at once. People would have to move around the trees and shrubs on bark side paths to see what plants were hidden behind them. She headed down to the office. It needed a little work, but the bathroom looked gross. As she stood by the door, she again looked around the building. Inspired by what she imagined, she left with her mind spinning with ideas. She knew a whole new world awaited her.
