When Tropical Storm Debby blew through, one Sarasota couple was relieved that their neighborhood didn’t get flooded. But their beautiful Glaucous cassia — aka scrambled egg tree — was not so lucky. Within minutes it seemed to faint to the ground, its long brilliant clusters of flowers fanned out like a flattened pinwheel.
The homeowners put in a work order to ArtisTree Landscape Maintenance & Design, expecting that their request would be one of a deluge. But in a couple of days, they sent us this note:
“Just want to let you know that we are so pleased with ArtisTree. We had our beautiful yellow tree fall over because of the wind and rain from Debby. I put in a work order on Monday or Tuesday, not expecting anything to happen right away. On Thursday morning they stood our tree back up and braced it. I think they do a marvelous job.”
That’s one thing about unsolicited storms. They bring unsolicited reactions, and, in this case, what we at ArtisTree value most of all: unsolicited praise.
It’s the best kind in the world.
