Olympic Flowers

Olympic Flowers:

.Just in case you are interested

The (odd-looking?) bouquet of flowers presented to each medalist on the

podium - 1,800 in all - are all the same, made up of green spider mums with

hypericum berries surrounded by leather-leaf fern, monkey grass, and

aspidistra leaves.

What's really interesting? They're all made by Just Beginning Flowers, a

non-profit company in Surrey BC Canada that employs women who are just out of prison,

abused, fighting addiction, or with special needs, and teaches them how to

be florists..

Thanks Millie McG
