Y'all. It happened this morning at 8am. The pumpkin truck arrived, and we are single-handedly turning all things orange at FGS! We are so excited and pumpkin spice lattes for everyone! YAHOO!!!!!!
Do you know what else is exciting? Remember when our Garden Center admin, Josh, left us and moved to Atlanta? Fortunately for FGS, we had the perfect person sitting in the wings. Who knew?!!! Meet Morgan. She has stepped into Josh's large, left-behind shoes and is running just as fast as he did.
Morgan started with us last spring in the garden center as a cashier. She quickly learned all the ins and outs, taking care of plants, watering and was working her way into a Plant Coach role. For some reason, we have been blessed with amazing teachers at the garden center who share all the knowledge they have. If you are a sponge, all you need to do is sit under their little fountains! And Morgan is a quick learner.
When Josh announced he was leaving, we hoped Morgan might be interested and would be the perfect fit. And sure enough, low and behold, we replaced an angel with an angel. Morgan has a very calming way about her and is incredibly helpful to everyone she interacts with. When you call the Garden Center, she often will interact with you so be sure you congratulate and thank her! PS. She might also be a goat whisperer.
As we get to know her even more, I'm sure we will have something fun to share. So far, I think she understands our systems better than I do. The old saying, "Use it or lose it" is very true. This includes memory, cooking skills and such. I won't cry if I lose my house cleaning skills. Who's with me on that?
If you are old school and it's time to do a little fall cleaning as we head into the holidays, we really are all orange and green!! Tackle those outdoor chores and come see us. We will have all the fall things you need to make your outdoors spectacular this year! And don't forget your pumpkin spice latte. Woot woot!!!
