We wanted to share some of the many entries in our guest book:

"Your exquisite collection has made me even more of a fanatical flower lover than ever before.  Best we do what is ultimately necessary to change our overall outlook towards saving this great state of my homeland. I can not thank you enough…"   ~Anonymous

"What an amazing exhibit. Opened my eyes and brain. A hummingbird is doing its part why can’t humans!"  ~ DZ

“Absolutely spectacular exhibit! Thank you for reminding us of the importance and beauty of our native flowers and the need to protect them.”  ~ Dorothy D.
