The Flower Lady

Marian Miller is a 92-year-old woman, who has been entering flowers in the New Holland Farmer’s Fair for about a half a century.

The Flower LadyWednesday was a big day for her as it was judging day. “The Flower Lady” is how she is known at the fair and though she is only 4-foot-6 she is quit a powerful force in the world of flowers.

She has had 22 entries in the contest for which she has won five blue ribbons, nine seconds and two thirds.

However, these ribbons cannot say enough about Marian’s love for flowers. She finds joy in nurturing her flowers and they give her a lot of purpose in life.

Her son Glen says, “It keeps her going, It is uplifting.”

Marian has been caught talking to her flowers and even scolding them when they are not listening. Her dried flowers are often so well preserved that people think they are not real.

Marian loves all types of flowers, she says, “Even the ones that stink, like spider plants.”
