2 photos (both of flowers) grouped together; the one at the top is red on a base of green while the second photo of a plant has reddish and white flowers strected upward – Mosella Wells has resided in Eatonvile since March 9,1959. Her family had been forced to move from their Winter Park home due to a project involving eminent domain. When she first moved to Eatonville, Mrs. Wells transplanted some of the shrubbery form her previous home to begin her new yard. As a child, the garden had been an important part of her family life as she had to help maintain it by watering and weeding. In her Eatonville yard, Mrs. Wells grows a broad variety of flowers, including abeliophyllum, azaleas, bird-of-paradise, bougainvillea, bromelaide, croton, crown-of-thorns, draceacena, heavenly bamboo, hollyberry shrubs, Indian Oxford, ixora, jasmine, orchids, phebalium, phebodium, Staghorn Fern, and wisteria. She also has grapefruit and orange trees.
