A local legend, "Officer Oliver," visited us! He rode in on his police motorcycle and delivered flowers to each resident along with a "ticket" for being "Too cute" and a big hug. He charmed everyone with such a thoughtful visit. He is definitely invited back any time!

We have started gardening (the wild weather has created quite the challenge, but it is a work in progress)! Our gardening club is in for a very unpredictable Spring! Did you know that just like art or music, flowers can evoke emotions and trigger old memories through aromatherapy? The colors also can evoke different feelings... like yellow evokes or symbolizes happiness... and as you know we are all about happiness here at Bickford, so do not be surprised if you see a lot more yellow (and colorful flowers) popping up soon!
