    Default BLC. Mt Isa 'Deborah' Kindness Of Strangers

    Well I have to share a story with you all

    I had seen the BLC. Mt Isa 'Deborah' weeks ago and because of the name and the colour of it I feel in love - Firstly I was born and grew up in Mt Isa here in Australia and my best friend was named Deborah and now I have a daughter named after her so hence the sentimental meaning to me

    Anyhow I emailed a orchid company here in Australia about this orchid and emailed back saying they had none but anyhow he did not give up there he sourced out this orchid for me then emailed me back a week later and said he had found somebody that had this orchid for me and was prepared to sell it too me - so he provided this person's email address and so off I go and email this person that has the orchid and well he answered my email this morning and well he lives all of 40 minutes away from

    So tomorrow afternoon I will be visiting this kind gentleman and will be the proud owner of Mt Isa 'Deborah' and possibly a few more orchids as well

    So it really has made me happy that a kindness from 2 strangers that do not know me have come to my aid and I will be forever grateful to them so next time I am in Toowoomba Australia I will be going to see the gentleman that sourced it out for me and will buying an orchid from to him too

    There are still nice people out there as much as we have been encountering the mean people. Looking forward to seeing your new additions.
