Primrose Findlay resident Clarence “Corky” Ferrell has been very busy this summer keeping our Primrose community flowers looking alive.

Corky is from a small town outside of Findlay, and owned a greenhouse before he moved to Primrose. All ten of Corky’s fingers are green, not just his thumbs!

This year, we had a Primrose planting party, where all of our residents planted the beautiful pots and hanging baskets that enhance our community. Corky quickly emerged as our Planting Party chairperson. He made sure all the pots had the right amount of flowers and the right colors.

Since we put the flowers out in May, Corky has been checking them multiple times every day and making sure they have enough water and fertilizer.

Because of Corky’s attention to these flowers, our flower baskets look amazing! They make our community look brighter, and their colors invite your gaze. It is so wonderful to have Corky share his talent with us.

By the way, Corky is also known around Primrose for his famous rice Krispy treats. If you visit him in his apartment, he will share them with you!

Thank you, Corky, for helping to make our community beautiful.
