The Flower House, Part ll

I forgot to mention that those flowers are not just out at Easter time, they are there all year! There are a few real ones, but most are fake. The lady who lived there was named Myrtle Cason. She bought the house in 2001, and has had all the flowers out front simply because she loved them. It was her way of spreading happiness. It became quite a tourist attraction. She moved into assisted living about a year ago, and died a few months ago at 89. She is survived by two sons, two sisters, and numerous nieces and nephews.  I don't know what will become of the house or flowers, but I will be keeping an eye on it. She certainly believed in an abundance of things she loved.  Here she is, as she was shown in the newspaper.


Here are some of the other items she mixed in with her flowers.






"How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you."
Psalm 31

every close up you showed, fish and snails etc, are things my mother would have wanted and loved and collected if she could. she did not have the money to get these type things, but she would if she could. especially the polkadot flower made of material...

Very interesting. She knew how to spread the joy around, even while getting it herself.
