Cancer Survivor's Garden - The Flowers
The photo on the left is of flowers in buckets before we arranged them for a wedding. These are also from August 2011. This photo was taken about three weeks after Mom's service. I adore lilies.
During most of my illness, I still sold flowers. Working with color and beauty was part of my healing process.
The arrangement on the right was for a church. The dark roses are Hot Cocoa, which has been unbelievably prolific. The arrangement also includes several English roses. I love my bright blue hydrangea seen toward the bottom of the arrangement. I have a Cancer Survivor's Garden story about the poor hydrangea.
Despite neglect, my flowers continue to delight my customers and lift my spirit.
