Lonely bouquets to leave scented smiles in Parksville Qualicum Beach

Local floral art club to make bouquets for people to discover July 13

If you see a bouquet of flowers sitting on its own on a bench or a step on Thursday, July 13, pick it up — it might just be for you.

The Mid Island Floral Art Club is taking part in the Lonely Bouquet Project, an idea started by Californian Emily Avenson which has since spread to various places in North America and Europe.

The project will have MIFAC members arrange flower bouquets and leave them in places around Qualicum Beach, Parksville, Bowser and Nanoose Bay with notes attached asking those who find them to take them.

“Please take me home!” reads the notes, said a MIFAC co-ordinator, Laurene Ebbett. “I’m alone and looking for a new home… perhaps I can live with you or a loved one?” The notes will also include the MIFAC website address in case bouquet finders would like to leave their own note.
