Fleurishers: Piet and José
Today marks the beginning of another fun floral project I plan to put into action: Fleurishers!
This project is dedicated to honoring those around us (people, local businesses, organizations) who are helping society to grow in the right direction… making the world a better place. Of course, in usual Fleuropean style, I’ll be honoring these Fleurishers with handmade bouquets. I think it’s time to shower these special people with flowers! :)
Without further ado, I’d like to introduce to you my first Fleurishers, Piet and José!
A retirement home for dogs in their golden years… what elderly pup wouldn’t enjoy living in a loving home nestled within the beautiful nature reserves of Zuid-Limburg? Besides simply being worderful people, Piet and José have chosen to make the world a more wonderful place, one dog at a time. They are currently loving parents to three “high risk” dogs, each adopted from local animal shelters. Suze, the youngster of the bunch, is a 10-year-old Jack Russel Terrier who suffers from a rather serious heart murmur. Suze needs a smorgasbord of pills each day in order to maintain a good quality of life. Xena, a deaf 14-year-old Jack Russel Terrier, was left without a home when her owner passed away. Lucky for her, Piet and José were looking to expand their family! And, last but not least, there’s Bobby, an 18(!!!)-year-old Jack Russel Terrier who, after several appearances on local TV shows, failed to find a new home… until Piet and José decided that their retirement home could use one more furry friend! :)
This “fleurishing” couple knows how to stop and smell the roses… and encourages their family of three to do the same!
In honor of their dedication to animals in need, Piet and José were the lucky recipients of the very first Fleurishers bouquet. This is a “thank you”, Piet and José, a token of my appreciation for the love you share, not just with people, but with animals as well.
Do you know any local Fleurishers? Do you have any special people, companies, or organizations in mind who you would like to honor with a handmade bouquet?
Please send me an e-mail with a little bit about the recipient and what makes them a Fleurisher!
For the Dutch visitors: Kent U een bijzonder persoon, bedrijf, of organisatie die in aanmerking zou komen om de volgende “Fleurisher” te zijn?
Stuur mij, AUB, een e-mail met een beetje informatie over de kandidaat!
