This post, “Surprise Package” was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
Just about 15 minutes ago, I received a big surprise. The UPS man rang the doorbell, and my hubby went to the door expecting his small package of a digital camera card. He came inside and said, “Someone’s been ordering plants. I can smell dirt through the box.”
I thought he was just being silly, but sure enough there was a big box with holes in the sides and my name on the box. I was perplexed. I didn’t order anything. I least I didn’t remember ordering any plants. I asked him if he ordered any plants for me for my birthday, which is coming up. Of course, I already knew the answer to that one. “No”
On opening the box, I found the order receipt on top of a dozen daylilies from Oakes Daylilies. They were from my wonderful, sweet, thoughtful sister in Virginia. I was so surprised. The plants were in wonderful condition. Last time she was in town, we talked about Oakes, and she said she had ordered from them before. She stated that the plants were big and grew quickly into vigorous plants. I said I might give them a try, but never did. Now, I have some Oakes daylilies, and can’t wait to thank my loving sister when she comes to visit next week.
