Cathy and brug

Cathy is an horticulturalists down to her fingertips.  She loves plants, she knows a lot about plants and she has an amazing talent to know how to make plants grow.   It is somewhat fitting that part of her career was devoted to the arrangement of flowers.  When Chuck and Cathy bought their land in town, they built a store which served as the showroom and office for the Garden Center but also as a florist shop.  Here, Cathy honed her craft as florist.  Around the year 2002 she got the contract for doing the flower arrangements at the Hovey Manor in North  Hatley.  Her job was to make about 7 flower arrangements twice a week for the summer months.  Her own gardens and a few exotice plants from the greenhouse were the source of her creations.  Here is a sampling of some of those arrangements.
