Honeybee Hideaway Greenhouse getting through a tough spot

FTLComm - Tisdale - Thursday, June 1, 2006

Through the years it has always been about the plants, the flowers, the growing things that are life itself. Mrs. Rowley has carried the passion for the way things grow for a long time and we in Tisdale have enjoyed her gift and shared her passion.

These images here at the top, on the right and below come from her albums and show the delicious Honeybee Hideaway Greenhouse when the river remained within its banks. Being flooded for a few days in the spring each year came to be expected but in 2005 is was a spring flood, another in June then a bad


in September. The one in September put Mrs. Rowley in a canoe to get out from her flooded home. Not only had the river conspired against her but the sewer system filled her bath tub.

All but one of the greenhouses are gone and the house is nearly torn down now. There was a little settlement from the insurance company and plans are to rebuild on the site. She told me she intends to keep her hand in with some growing things for the farmers market and perhaps next year some bedding plants.

Take a look at the place back in September 2000.
