Since the placement of the Flowers for a Friend sculpture on the grounds of the Hiwan Homestead museum in July, this sculpture has been a magnet for kids! “Emma”, the young girl in the sculpture, offers a bouquet of flowers to her adult friend and mentor, and kids love her!! It is infrequent to visit the sculpture and not see kids mesmerized by the sculpture and playing at its base.
Ken Ball created the sculpture to reflect the intergenerational sharing of the love of nature and gardening and his goal has certainly been met! The sculpture is a tribute to Louise and Bill Mounsey recognizing all they have done for our community and the gift of the sharing of nature that they have passed on.
