Botanical Gardens Bring Spring Gift to Patient
Lydia Weiss has been waiting eagerly Spring’s arrival. She has always had a love for the change of seasons, especially when the bitter winds of winter give way to the light breezes of the warmer months.
Unfortunately, as a hospice patient in Brecksville, OH, Weiss doesn’t have the opportunity to welcome the Spring by maintaining a garden of flowers as she once did. With the days growing longer and the flowers blooming, she wanted nothing more than the chance to take it all in.
That’s why for her Gift of a Day, Weiss asked to spend the afternoon at the Cleveland Botanical Garden. Crossroads staff gathered her family members for a tour of the garden, where they enjoyed a beautiful, sunny day among the rare collections. With the vivid colors and smells of the flowers all around her, Weiss felt the season of renewal within her.
