    Default S.T.O.P. Pay it Forward...They've arrived

    Sarah, thank you so much. They are absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way.

    These aren't great photos, but I'm so excited and just had to share the news that they've arrived.

    My heart is so full of joy at having found this site, and the wonderful people who come here daily and do nice, generous things like this. I will treasure these little beauties, and hopefully there will come a day when I can send some on to others, as I have received these.

    Sarah, you are indeed a very special person!!

    Yup! Sadie's babies are now safely ensconsed on my sewing table where I can admire them for a bit. Take a look...

    Oh hooray! I'm glad that 3 of 5 have made it undamaged. You never know when someone at the post office will drop a crate of bowling balls on your box marked "fragile." It looks like their sphag moss got a bit jumbled en route--but otherwise no damage. I'm glad they have found such happy new homes!

    Although it is tempting--don't water them for a day or two. Shipping inherently bumps them around a bit and the plant needs a day or so to seal over any bumps. Watering them immediately can introduce bacteria etc. Happy growing!
