From HEART to HEART ..... - by Country Manor Florist


     They were newlyweds in February 1922,
having been married less than six months.
He spent his days doing research in New York Public Library.  She spent hers in a dingy basement room in Greenwich Village,
addressing and stuffing envelopes.
     That February, the first issue of their
unique magazine sold nearly 5,000 copies.
Today, the magazine they published -
  Readers Digest - has a circulation of
millions.  It made millionaires of DeWitt
Wallace and his wife, Lila Bell Wallace.
     When Mrs. Wallace died at the age
of 94, newspapers made much of her
philanthropies.  But, they also remembered
her as one who made everyday surroundings
as beautiful as possible.
     She had collected works of art and hung them in the magazine's offices to show that
beauty and business should not be alien to
each other. She was mainly known for
providing fresh flowers every day for the
Great Hall at the Metropolitan Museum of
Art and for public rooms at the Digest.
She loved having flowers surround the buildings.
     Fresh flowers added to the beauty of a
room and many times arranged the flowers
herself after choosing them from her own garden.  She also gave many of the arrangements away,   trying to
       "make someone's day special."
     Money is useful, but beauty inspires.

    A Single Rose, a small bouquet or even
an arrangement of flowers can do much to
make our surroundings more pleasant as
well as making someone smile.

        A Quote worth remembering:

   "Flowers are Love's Truest Language.
    In Joy or Sadness, flowers are our
        Constant Friends."
