FEA T URE | FEA T URE | Mary Hardee took a likening to flowers in college. Taking a floral arranging class at night revealed a hobby shes carried with her for more than 15 years. Thankfully, she brought her craft to Guantanamo Bay a year and a half ago, and has since been wooing friends and acquaintances with her artsy style. I really like flowers, said Hardee. I like working with my hands; it helps me decompress. Hardee, a small-framed, softspoken woman, with a contagious smile carries a plastic bag with her to collect the flowers well, theyre not real flowers. She grew up in Colorado where there arent many beaches, but she loved collecting sea glass and shells when she did find a beach. Those little treasures later became Hardees flowers. You see Hardees flowers never die, because theyre made of broken glass bottles, shell and oddly enough tape. Not just any The Ever-lasting Bouquet Story and photos by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Maddelin Angebrand

THE WIRE | PAGE 11 | FEA T URE THE WIRE | PAGE 11 | FEA T URE tape floral tape. When I came down here a year ago, shared Hardee, my son happened to be getting married and I was making the bouquet. I had all my floral tape and wire with me, and from there I was like, well, I could use it for this and that And that she did, Hardee uses her florist mind-set, sense of design, and love of the beach to create everlasting floral arrangements. Red is the hardest color to find, Hardee explained as she pulled and twisted a piece of green, floral tape around a pinkish shell. I mostly use the green for the leaves, and I try to match the colored glass with each arrangement, some have dark glass and others lighter green. I try to match the shades. Hardee said shed be overrun with sea glass if she didnt have an outlet for her collection. Todays outlet is Aunt Glo. I get people begging me, said Hardee I do this outside my regular job as a hobby, so I dont charge people and they get their flowers when can get to making them. Army Col. George Bryan, a Trooper attached to Joint Task Force Guantanamo said Hardees work is a direct reflection of her outward expression of positivity and creativity. The amount of detail, creativity and time that she puts in to making these floral shell creations, Bryan complimented, to my knowledge, can be found nowhere else in the world other than GTMO. If you are fortunate enough to have one, you will most definitely treasure it! If Hardee charged for her florist talent shed only end up making a minimum wage; between collecting the shells, the glass, and twisting the tape around each piece Hardee would have to charge too much money. Each arrangement takes about 30-50 minutes not including the time she takes collecting her materials. Its just a hobby, Hardee explained. Ill spend hours doing this really because this place is crazy and some people arent content to be with themselves. I can go and spend hours collecting sea glass all by myself its relaxing. Hardee said they are hours well spent and encourages others to pursue a hobby while working on Guantanamo Bay. Just when Ive had a bad day at work or whatever, I know Im making something pretty, she smiled. It takes my mind off of things. You gotta find whats right for you. Hardees goal is to make a dozen roses only difference is they wont die. And if youre thinking they wont smell like flowers think again. When twisting an arrangement by candlelight one day. Hardee accidentally dropped the glass into the candle wax, creating a pretty coloring and giving the flower a scent an accident she now calls dipping. Hardees forever flowers can be seen around base on display table and pinned to plaques given away as gifts. As for getting one yourself, youll have to catch Hardee by chance. She doesnt sell her flowers or even advertize them. Its more of a word-of-mouth thing she said. The good news is if you do find her, you wont find any wilted flowers! The Ever-lasting Bouquet
