Garden Club lady delivers flowers and smiles
“In those early years,” said Kelley, “our club volunteered to maintain the grounds at Greenwood Woman’s Club, the Abbeville-Greenwood Library and National Health Care.
Now, twice a year, the club plants and maintains two containers at Hospicecare of the Piedmont, two at the Arts Council and two at Greenwood Airport.
Kelley has served her club in numerous leadership roles. She has been its chaplain, president, vice president and treasurer. Currently she is vice president of Greenwood Council of Garden Clubs and is also a past president. In addition, she has been a volunteer with Hospice and Merrywood Elementary.
But serving as the bearer of floral bouquets to the residents of Wesley Commons holds a special place in her heart.
“If you can make someone smile, that’s what it’s all about,” she said, who recalls the time a woman saw her carrying in her tray of flowers and asked if she could buy some. “I said, ‘No, but I’ll give you some,’” related Kelley.
Staff have also been the beneficiaries of Kelley’s good cheer.
Andrea Hobson, campus activities manager at Wesley Commons, said, “We are privileged to have a volunteer like Vivian Kelley who gives so graciously of her time each month. I don’t know what the residents enjoy the most, seeing her bright smile light up the room as she enters or the beautiful flower display to celebrate their birthday. Over the years, she has touched the lives of so many of us at Wesley Commons.”
“Kelley is a wonderful reflection of God’s love,” said her longtime friend, Barmore. “She is always there for others. In addition to her family and her church, she has blessed the residents at Wesley Commons, not only with her flower arrangements, but with the time she spends visiting and talking with them.”
The FTD coined the slogan, “Say it with flowers,” but Kelley brings the slogan to life.

Slidell man's passion for iris flowers blossoms into garden on Bayou Liberty Road: Military Road
Greek for rainbow. Trahan's garden includes Iris fulva, or the Copper Iris, sporting their brick red flowers and examples of Iris nelsonii, the Abbeville Iris, a rare plant known to live in the wild only in a small area about six miles south of Abbeville, Louisiana. He is especially excited that a few of this specific type have sported a rare yellow bloom.
"At one time, this particular plant was thought to be extinct. It is now just considered very rare," Trahan said.
Each plant is tagged with a hand-made metal marker featuring the plant's official name. Benny is at the Bayou Liberty garden each day. Kathleen visits to help with the weeding and to bring lunch that they share at an umbrella shaded table among the flowers.
Since iris thrive in marsh and swamp environs, Trahan has created artificial swamps using plastic tarps, pots and an extensive watering system he installed by hand. Frogs sing from between the plants when you walk by the constructed paddies.
"These plants need a lot of water. We have some planted in the ground, but they really do well in these water paddies," he said.
The garden has been a family project many times since its creation. Hurricane Katrina took out more than a dozen pine trees on the property and caused iris plants in pots to float down the road and into the neighbor's yards. One saving grace from that time is the brackish water did little to actually harm the plants themselves.
After an extensive illness, Trahan said the weeds in the garden were higher than the plants themselves. It was then that their children and their spouses and their grandchildren pitched in to make things right.
"We had all 20 of them out here for three Sundays in a row, weeding and cleaning it up," Kathleen said. "They know what it means to him and we made a big picnic out of it all."
In a special section of the garden are hybrid plants created by Trahan in honor of his wife, their children and grandchildren. He has completed the official process to name and register each unique bloom. They include Debbie's Delight, Pam's Pleasure and Missy's Dream for their daughters, and Kathy's Clown for Kathleen.
"I think it might be named for me," said Benny, wearing a grin.
Chelsea Bell honors their granddaughter, while Holden's Hit, Hunter's Catch and Haden's Run are for their ball-playing grandsons. King Alex, Little Tris, Conner's Find and Brandon are also named after their grandchildren. Plants for daughter-in-laws Ellen and Debbie are in the process of being named and registered.
Trahan enjoys sharing his iris expertise with others and has been a guest speaker on the subject as well as a consultant on garden projects. His work in donating plants and creating an iris area in New Orleans' City Park brought him to the attention of Keep Slidell Beautiful. He helped gather together donated iris bulbs...
