As a Floral Designer She Helped Work on Grand Floral Parade Floats

For six years I worked as a floral designer for three different float builders. My job was to make some of the large bouquets on the floats.

When I bought the book ["Portland Rose Festival--For You a Rose in Portland Grows"] by local news personality, Mike Donahue, I was delighted and surprised to see a photo on the last page (page 102) of the Junior Court float I helped with.

Right above it is this photo of my grandchildren when they took part in one of the Junior Parades.

My granddaughter, Patience, is wearing a 'bride' outfit and headpiece I made for her adorned with satin roses. She won a second prize ribbon!
