ONWARD and UPWARD!

 

Words can't express how humbled I feel when I read your comments. I cry, I laugh, and I rejoice that our paths crossed. Our oasis on Facebook is not going away...there will be no black wreath on the door! I will continue to offer advice and answer gardening questions until I see my final sunset. THIS garden party is just getting started!

 

I know a lot of you are wondering exactly what happened, but there were no conspiracies or squabbles prior to my departure as your garden guy. QVC has been a wonderful home for me these past twenty-two years, and I have made many lasting friendships and have experienced the joy of being around a multitude of motivated and talented individuals. I am not sure what lies ahead for me, but I am as excited as I was when I first graduated from Mississippi State and moved to Manhattan...without a clue or a plan. It all worked out.

 

And, who knows? Hurricanes sometimes make landfall more than once.

I will miss him!  What a ray of warm southern sunshine!  I'm really enjoying the "Tropical Trumpet Vine" (mandevilla) I bought from him this year.

Carolyn hinted around in her Facebook post that Phillip will still appear on QVC, but in a different capacity.  It sounds like he has a few different projects in mind and that his career will be moving in a different direction.

 

I look forward to seeing him in the future and wish him the very best.

Those are not daylilies but they are lilies. Beautiful ones at that!

Re: phillip watson leaving cottage farms/qvc

I know I’m really late for this post but I missed it during the summer, here I was waiting and looking out for Phillips cottage farm airing on the Q and couldn’t find anything upcoming for days Smiley Sad it made me so sad to find out he’s retired and not coming back. He would give me some sunshine during the harsh freezing months of January and February. Does anyone know if he’ll ever be back?

Phillip Watson is a very attractive man with a wonderful personality!  He was head and shoulders above almost all the other vendors on QVC, and I will miss him! 

 

Please come back for a visit, Phillip!  I wish I could give you a hug for all the years you have entertained and enlightened me!!  16x16_heart.png
