This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have.
Let me show you.
Let me get it for you.
Where is your car?
I shop at Jericho Nursery for my gardening needs. I have shopped there since I first arrived in the valley in 2005. More recently, I also have the occasional opportunity to help a bit with the weekly newsletter, as was the case this week. And, as usual, I shopped.
I like it here! The product selection is robust, the nursery is aesthetically pleasant AND artfully organized, which means that I can find what I need. On the rare occasion that I don’t find what I need, I ask someone. Anyone. The answer? “Let me get it for you.”
Sometimes, I know what I want and don’t know the common name. “I bought it here last year. It’s a really pretty hanging basket thing with pink flowers and round leaves.” Not terribly specific, or scientific. Again, I ask someone. The answer? “Let me show you.”
On at least one occasion, I have visited without any specific need beyond a stroll through the current selection. On one such visit, I found more than was likely to fit in my vehicle. As I scratched my head over this predicament, I heard a voice. “Where is your car?” (Seriously? Help to my CAR?!!) So rare, and so appreciated.
I have also wondered, “How do I treat this bug/fungus/disease?” Easy fix. Snip a sample, put it in a plastic bag, and bring it in for inspection and diagnosis. This has NEVER failed! I get a great product recommendation, advice about its application, and I depart with hope in my heart and a keen sense of relief.
So, ask me again: why Jericho? Answer: Why would I shop anywhere else?
