Since I began the Happy Flower Day Project in May of 2013, thousands of residents of senior living facilities have been surprised by the gorgeous flowers donated by a specialty food market. I am so grateful to them for sharing so many beautiful bouquets. It has been so much fun for me!
In the beginning stages of the project, I posted on a daily blog about my adventures and where the flowers went…..but during the past few years, I have not done that. I just love taking the flowers to surprise people and have not worried about blogging……just merry-making with flowering!
I have two books that will help you if you would like to bring joy to people via “Flower Power.”
More than 28,000 bouquets of fresh flowers have been delivered to surprise people in need of a smile! The links to media stories are often taken down. If not working, please let me know and I will email video or pictures to you.
Moral of the story: Never underestimate the power of a bouquet of flowers for someone in a nursing home or even on the street! The heavenly fragrance, the beauty and the surprise of a gift of flowers has shown me that little things mean a lot.
Patricia welcomes interviews and speaking engagements. Lots of photos, video, and suggested interview questions available. May be available on short notice. She welcomes you to join her as she cheers up elderly patients with the gift of free flowers.
