BX successes- TOW

Hello friends,
I have to say that were it not for Dell, I don't know if I would have
a lover of Oxalis because they seem to disappear. Either the heavy rain has
them away or perhaps the Morning Doves have eaten them; they seem to
especially love
the O' Garnet.  I have a Squirrel that makes no bones about stealing my
bulbs etc,
he squirrels them away for our cold winter, even suns him or herself in the
flower pots.
I have had to replace a few bulbs and surprising enough, many people have
never heard
of Oxalis or don't carry them in their store.  Dell has patience and asks
if I am placing
a double order because he remembered that I placed this request at least
once before. My friends have also taken to the Oxalis and nice person that
I am, I've allowed them to try their hand at growing my favorite. I have
given away a few of my beautiful Oxalis to family because I am proud of my
"green thumb," don't laugh.  Dell is also organized and timely, so I am
able to know when my little parcel will arrive, I'm like a kid in a candy
store. Is that the mail person knocking at my door?
