The Calla Lily Thief – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
If you’re looking for a good place to steal hard to find, exotic plants, Ninth Ward Nursery is the place.
Mark Sanders started Ninth Ward Nursery, as you might have guessed, in the 9th Ward, as a way to relive his glory days as a child, wandering through the backwoods of Huntsville, Alabama, waiting for the street lights to come on. Mark is also a travel writer and editor so there are plenty of hours when the one-man nursery business is unattended. On the advice of our lawyers, we recommend you buy plants the legit way in the hours that Mark is in attendance at the nursery. You’ll recognize him, he’s the guy with the yellow Google sunglasses.

You’re not even going to believe the list of accomplishments Havilah has racked up in her few short years since graduating from Bonnabel High, but they include running a $160m company, appearing on QVC and Home Shopping Network, and writing a #1 Best-selling book.

You would be forgiven for thinking that’s hyperbole, but check it out for yourself. Danielle plays two songs on this Happy Hour.
Andrew Duhon has had an idea about owning a piece of land in the back of his mind and the riff for a song about it in his back pocket for a while now. On this show Andrew unveils the song that is the sum of those two parts. This one’s a keeper.
