Thank you

Thank you for the beautiful magenta flower. I had just picked up my son from preschool and was watching him throw a stick into the street. Suddenly a smiling face handed me a flower and was gone. What a nice moment of kindness and fun.  -- Olivia

Thank you!!

Thanks so much for the flower the other day, you are a gem!


Thank you Talia. We just returned from the coast flower distributing mission! It went super well. unfortunately i didn't have time to hand out many flowers. I did however give some amazing people a bunch of flowers so they will be distributing them for me. After they hand them all out i want to interview them about their experiences. This will then turn into a mini documentary so look for that in the coming weeks.

First Donation!

So recently i received my first donation for this art piece. It couldn't have come at a better time, you see my wonderful girlfriend and I have been planing a vacation to Portland for a while and figured we might as well hand flowers out in towns on the way there and back. the first donation is enough to get this started, though i could always use more. The more donations i have the more flowers i can have which means the more happiness i can spread. So please please donate and help me spread the love, i know its clique but every bit does help even 5 dollars. Thank you for your time and appreciation of this piece.

Dear Nathan,

Dear Nathan,
I keep the flower you handed me in a small vase of water (it's still doing its daisy thing, blooming right along) and your hand lettered card propped up on my desk. I knew you were an art person by the way you handled the typography, and it was clear you were - are! - an artist in that larger realm of the human heart. I am so grateful for the way you reached out to open my heart on that day a week or so ago. I didn't know how to thank you (there wasn't anything written on the back of my card) and so I was glad to see the article about you in the Chronicle yesterday. May blessings be returned to you many times over.

You deserve a flower Nathan

Thank you very much for the pick me up today Nathan! I can't even remember the last time I received a flower. It's the simple things that remind us of the beauty in life. Thanks for sharing the love my friend. I hope you feel the love in return.
Love, Nicki
