Back in early April my friend, Debbie, and I took a "Fun With Succulents" class lead by Jan. In addition to being smart and creative, he had a great sense of humor and it was my pleasure to be part of the group that evening.
These photos are from that night. I don't usually include this many in a post, but am making an exception today.
An example of Jan's creativity.
Color everywhere at Mayflower.
Plants and containers.
My very delightful friend, Debbie.
She knows more about gardening
than I can ever dream to know.
An important aspect of a garden center
is the accessibility of wagons.
How else does a gardener transport all
of his/her plant loot to the car?
Memories of Jan Wos will make people smile.
That's a good thing!
I'm so sorry about your friend.ReplyDelete
I love the plant people! So creative.
This is a very nice tribute and so great photos. I'm a strong believer in the power of photos.ReplyDelete
Seems like a very sad loss.ReplyDelete
Who could resist buying up containers when they're grouped so enticingly by colour?
My comment was supposed to say "some great photos". Fingers faster than my brain.ReplyDelete
What a loss and what beauty he shared.ReplyDelete
There is something very special about a neighborhood greenhouse/florist. They can brighten up all with friendliness and creativity. A loss indeed....ReplyDelete
I had not heard this and am very shocked to learn of Jan's passing... LReplyDelete
I am so sorry for your loss. The sculptures are tremendously creative!ReplyDelete
An independent garden center can be such a treasure.
I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. Aren't you glad you took that class though? The memories will stay with you. His nursery looks absolutely wonderful! I hope he has family or trusted friends who will continue it.ReplyDelete
I hope that the family will keep the business, and keep it as fun as it is now. Several years ago my favorite greenhouse/nursery just up and closed and it was like losing a family member!ReplyDelete
It is always difficult to lose a friend like this. This looks like a remarkable greenhouse/nursery.ReplyDelete
Your friend was very creative and artistic. It is so sad when we lose people of unique character and services. I know that you and all who patronized his shop will miss him very much.ReplyDelete
Sorry for your loss.
What a beautiful place! It is a great loss. My condolences to all who knew him.ReplyDelete
That was a nice tribute to your friend. I enjoyed the photos. He really was creative!
Lovely tribute you your friend. Enjoyed every photo (I love photos obviously). Treasure all your fond memories and celebrate this wonderful life.ReplyDelete
Jan sounded like a treasure.ReplyDelete
Okay something might have gone wrong here....I'll do it over again.ReplyDelete
It's good to be back in blogland again and see that you're in the colors of nature to play and have fun.
Enjoy my friend.
Looks like she left quite a legacy there at the greenhouse! Wish it was nearby for me to visit!ReplyDelete
What a lovely tribute to a special plantsman, Donna! The succulent figures are so creative; I can only imagine how fun this class must have been. Mr. Wos sounds like a special person who left quite a legacy.ReplyDelete
What a special person Mr. Wos must have been. I love garden people. And what a wonderful legacy and mark on the world to leave behind. Sounds like you are very lucky to have known this person.ReplyDelete
What a talent he had. But he left some wonderful memories behing. How wonderful you were able to take a class from him and have some of his knowledge.ReplyDelete
What a gift from God. I really enjoyed reading the posts on your blog. I would like to invite you to come on over to my blog and check it out. God bless, LloydReplyDelete
oh, my, what a loss. easy to see that he was very gifted. sorry for your loss.ReplyDelete
Nice tribute, and great pics. love the topiary people!ReplyDelete

The photos shows how creative your friend was.

Are you as toasted in Green Bay as we are in PA? We had a half day of rain yesterday - a real blessing - after weeks of hot, dry weather. I've been sidelined with sciatica and not much gardening is getting done. Oh well, the weeds seem happy enough. Hope you are well.
Jan was an artist through and through! What an amazing store...those succulent people are awesome!!! I am sorry for your loss!ReplyDelete
Hello Donna, how are you doing this summer? Thinking of you and your garden.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the visit and comment. We have a wet weekend here. We cancelled our plan for today going to the Blue Mountains.
Hope you have a great weekend.
I know I have your email somewhere, but I can't find it anywhere.
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I can completely understand how you feel. I'm sure he will be missed. Keep your mother close as this is a very challenging time for her.
Know you are in my thoughts and I'll be there when you start blogging again.
