I would like to say a big thank you to Didier Greenhouse for giving Easter Lilies to the hospitals and nursing homes this year. They didn’t let a business low discourage them from putting a few smiles on hospital patients and 185 people at River Bluff Retirement Center and 25 at East Bank Center. It was a beautiful Easter gift showing the love of the community and peace of the Lord on this holy day.

They are struggling this year because of coronavirus with spring plants and flower sales. With many florists shut down, and markets, they have a lot of plants that need to find their way into someone's garden and yard. Let’s all try and support a business that has served the westside of Rockford for over 70 years. Let’s say thank you for all the service they have given us by placing an order online or curbside pickup.

They have a nice display of everything outside which you can choose from. This could give you joy in planting a garden while we are on stay at home order.
