The America the Beautiful Fund made a very generous donation to my Horticulture Therapy program. 108 amaryllis bulbs!!! Here are the empty wooden crates that the bulbs were shipped in. It was amusing, no one knew what kind of bulbs they were. One guy at the warehouse thought they might be onions, another thought potatoes... um, no... not edible guys.
The America the Beautiful Fund http://www.america-the-beautiful.org/ donated the bulbs to our Medical Center. According to their webpage reports http://www.guidestar.org/pqShowGsReport.do?partner=justgive&ein=52-0963138, the ABF has distributed over 30,000 amaryllis bulbs to veterans hospitals, children's hospitals, senior centers and other horticultural therapy programs. Since I have run out of room in the greenhouse, they are now on a table in the back room of the Flower Shoppe! How awesome is this!!
