The flower project

Well, this week, a florist donated 223 bouquets of flowers that I took to the residents of 16 nursing homes. Not 223 bouquets all at once. Each morning, I went to the store and they gave me the “day-old” ones but they were fresh as a daisy to the residents who happily held them in their arms. I asked the store manager if I could come every morning…..and continue delivering them to local nursing homes and senior centers.
The lady said, “I have wanted to donate them for the past two years that I worked here. It is a waste to toss them in the trash at the end of the day but we have fresh flowers coming in every day so we cannot keep all of the flowers. I am glad that somebody can use them.” I am so glad too!
