Hope in Bloom

Hoping it would help her grief-stricken husband cope with the loss of his son, Jan Welhelm became set on transforming an empty city lot in Humbolt into a splendidly, beautiful garden. The result of her efforts, and those who pitched in to make her vision a reality, is a wonderfully pleasing, peaceful space where anyone who is suffering from loss may find respite from their sorrow.
