Whipple offers patrons free flowers before frost

OSCEOLA COUNTY — A local resident is offering an opportunity for individuals to “pay it forward with flowers” this weekend. Brooke Whipple created a U-Pick Flower business on Meceola Road this summer, and now that the summer is ending and summer flowers are sparse, she is offering a free U-pick day on Saturday.

However, Whipple said she would like pickers to also pick a bouquet for a loved-one, shut-in, person in need, hospital patient or nursing home resident in order to spread the cheer.

The farm is located three miles west on Meceola Road. For more information, visit www.flowerbucketfarm.com.
