The next morning Wendy headed to The Shade House. The workers installation of the glass roof and the lattice to be placed just below the glass appeared ready. Carol and Mary Ann worked on stacking some newly arrived ceramic pots.
Carol met Wendy in the center of the nursery.
“It’s so rad,” Carol said. “I feel like I’m in a forest and I don’t just mean the forest area, I mean all of it. I worked at a nursery when I lived in Sacramento and I’ve been gardening for years so I’ve seen a lot of nurseries, but none compares to the naturalness of yours.”
“You have helped make it look good, along with Mary Ann, Judy and others.” Wendy placed her hands on Carol’s shoulders. “I couldn’t have done it without you guys. I can’t thank you enough.”
“You’re welcome. We loved to help.”
“I didn’t know you were experienced at gardening.”
“Yes, I love it a lot. I have house plants in my apartment, but wish I had a balcony for more plants.”
“I can understand your desire.” Wendy hesitated, “I remember you said you were between jobs, is that right?”
“Yes, I was let go about a month ago.”
“I’m sorry to hear that.” Without hesitation, “Would you be interested in working here?”
“I’d love to have you help out.”
Without a moment’s thought, she blurted out, “I accept your offer.”
Wendy smiled. “Wait, you don’t even know the wage.”
“I’m sure it will be fair.”
“Thanks, Carol.” Wendy leaned forward and gave her a hug.
