Unique Garden Greeter

Succulents Galore

A surprise Greeter sat just off the parking area of

the garden nursery

What unique workers they employ

This one was sporting hair like fuzzy succulents and

had a nose with large nostrils,

green spongy stars centered on his face

Black sunglasses kept any glare off the eyes,

boots protected his ankles and the soles of his feet

Color-coordinated gardening gloves matched the shirt logo,

preventing thorns from poking fingers

The nametag was a bit hidden, but no matter,

his relaxed stance and wonderfully frilly beard that obscured his face

drew us in to browse
