Hazel's Happy Flowers
At a very early age, Miss Hazel fell in love with flowers. Not just any flowers but the flowers at her grandparents farm. From the time she was 3 months old she has spent most days in the Glory B greenhouse with her Papa and Nana. At 2 she started watering with a tiny watering can, and now at 7 she is an experienced propagator, knowledgeable of many flowers, assists our Bee Keeper, and arranges bouquets weekly during the summer for the
60 families that belong to the farm.
In 2020 when the world as we knew it became very distant, faces were hidden by masks, schools and businesses were closed and online became the norm, Miss Hazel wanted to brighten every ones day. She asked her Papa if she could have a row in the field to plant flowers. She thumbed through countless seed catalogs, using her allowance she ordered seeds. Over 500 cells were planted by her tiny hands. But now she needed another row! Of course we had room!
By mid March 2020, Hazel decided to share her seeds with her online class. She made packets of sunflowers, filled started pots, designed a diagram and presented a You-Tube to her teacher. Her teacher delivered the bags to all the students and together online they share the progress. It was a wonderful experience for all.
Looking ahead Hazel's 2022 Flower Project will be a Cut Flower Field. Some of the proceeds from her Seed Tip Jar (the members left tips in a jar for her arrangements) she has set aside for seeds. The field will be planted in colorful cut flowers of all kinds and be available in August on select days for a small fee. Also there will be flower arranging events. These will be posted on our events calendar. She still will provide our members with their weekly flowers, cause
