104 year old Violet

Retirement(Dallas)January 9, 2004

I have a resident who is turning 104 on January 25. Her first name is Violet and I would like to have 104 violets to use to make the number 104. Preferably I would have these donated by a wholesaler or loaned to me for this one day. Can you help me contact someone who can help me locate these plants?

My grandma's name was Violet, as is my middle name. I wish I could have helped with your party. If applicable, next year, you could grow them from seed in cell packs or other small containers under some shop lights, starting at Thanksgiving for bloom on her birthday. Be sure you have one warm light bulb included, as that promotes blooming. A plant light timer helps. Please wish her a belated birthday from me, from one Aquarian Violet to another. :-)
