So, our birthdays were in July and we did nothing. Our anniversary was in September and we both forgot until the day after (38 years will do that to you, I guess.)

I decided I wanted a new mini Cymbidium and was browsing SBOE's website. Because of the virus, I suppose, I had to call them. What a nice experience.

Wayne helped me. He was so kind. He even took pictures of several plants we talked about so that I could see them. I actually talked to him twice and he even remembered me.

So, today I received my plants (2 day Fed Ex) and they are just perfect! The packing was excellent, the plants looked great, it was an all around sweet experience. This is the second time I have purchased from them and as I recall, the first order was great, too.(Since their open house was cancelled, they sent me an open house flyer and a bag of popcorn.)

Here's a picture. Oh, and the box was wonderful, too. I can use it to send something back out! Good boxes are sometimes hard to find. I think you can zoom in to read the tags. That way I won't get corrected.

My experience is that SBOE is a first rate nursery.

Happy 38th and may you have 38 more!

TY, Keysguy. That's unlikely to happen. They'd also be giving me the oldest living person award! Lol
