As far back as I can remember, watching ALL the Christmas specials on television was a highlight of my year. I had several favorites, including How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Frosty the Snowman, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and of course my favorite, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Even though the animation is archaic by todays standards, I still love watching Rudolph, and in fact saw it a couple nights ago. Besides just being insanely cute, it’s a story of bravery and heroism and rising to the occasion to get the job done. It’s also an empowering story of how characters labelled as ‘misfits’ find their wings and save the day. As an adult, I appreciate the story of Rudolph even more, because I have accumulated my share of failures in life and have felt like a misfit at various times. I also feel very strongly that Little Prince has been the place for me that has brought out all my best qualities and has allowed me to excel and use my gifts to their fullest potential. I’m still continually challenged here too, and I love that aspect of my work.
The story of Rudolph culminates with Santa asking that great question, “Rudolph with your nose so bright, won’t you guide my sleigh tonight”, and that’s where the story of Little Prince and your story merge. We have 5 large ‘sleighs’ in our parking lot (at least when they are not making deliveries), all adorned with our adorable crowned frog logo, and driven by the next best thing to Santa himself, Ines and Gustavo, and sometimes Armando and Clark. These guys have a problem though. They need you to guide their sleighs by ordering plants for them to deliver! This is perfect timing too, because plants are such fabulous gifts for the gardeners in our lives. I will personally be giving some cool houseplants and accessories to a couple special people in my life because I know how much they will appreciate them. Imagine the delighted expression on a customers face when they find our GORGEOUS Chick Charms® ‘Gold Nugget’ in your garden center, or our growing array of beautiful houseplants. We have opened up a block of 4.5’ Gold Nugget for sale this Christmas season, and they are STUNNING! Our houseplant availability is great now too for everything from an enormous selection of tender succulent PLANTER POPPERS to lots of tropical ferns and the like. Look at our PRINCE OF PARADISE® section of our current availability. We also have a good selection of Christmas items left if you need to order or RE-ORDER anything from that list. Finally, check out all the amazing CACTUS that came back from San Diego with me!
So…please call and guide our sleighs to your garden center! Our jolly elves are eager to bring you some fantastic plants. Have a wonderful week!
