SPRING AT JUNE CROON'S NURSERY ON

LONG ISLAND IS BY FAR THE MOST

BEAUTIFUL TIME OF THE YEAR.

BLUES ARE ABUNDANT AND IT'S THE

SEASON FOR JUNE TO SHIP FLOWERS

TO LOCAL GARDEN SHEN TERES.

GARDEN -- CENTERS.

WHEN SHE FIRST GOT INTO THE

BUSINESS, SHE STRUGGLED.

SHE I INHERITED THE NURSERY, BUT

HAD NO EXPERIENCE AND KNEW

NOTHING ABOUT PLANTS.

THERE WAS A GREAT DEAL OF

ANXIETY, ESPECIALLY BEING

RESPONSIBLE NOW FOR THE

OPERATION, HAVING PEOPLE RELY ON

ME.

IT STRETCHED ME TO THE VERY ENDS

IN EVERY WAY, MENTALLY,

EMOTIONALLY.

I WAS STRETCHED.

JUNE STRUGGLED THROUGH THE

FIRST GROWING SEASON, BUT ONE

DAY WHILE WATCHING THE 700 CLUB,

SHE HEARD PAT ROBERTSON ADVISE

HER TO GIVE HER MONEY AWAY.

I JUST WENT ALONG WITH PAT'S

PROMPTING AND I JUST PRAYED TO

THE LORD.

LORD, I WANT TO BE A BIG GIVER.

AND I DIDN'T KNOW HOW THAT WAS

POSSIBLE.

LITTLE DID SHE KNOW THE

ANSWER TO THAT PRAYER WAS IN HER

OWN BACKYARD.

SHE FOUND A FLOWER BLOOMING IN

THE GARDEN, A HYBRID THAT CAN BE

CREATED BEFORE JUNE HAD TAKEN

OVER THE BUSINESS.

SO WE TRIED TO STUMP THE

EXPERTS AND WE ASKED SOME PEOPLE

AND NO ONE COULD IDENTIFY IT.

AND WHEN NOBODY KNEW WHAT IT

WAS, I SAID, OKAY, POT IT UP AND

WE'LL SELL IT.

IT'S A VERY LOVELY PLANT.

THEN A HORTICULTUREIST HURT

ABOUT IT AND APPROACHED JUNE

ABOUT MASS PRODUCING THE FLOWER

AND GIVING JUNE A PERCENTAGE OF

THE PROFITS.

I HAD NO IDEA WHERE IT WAS

GOING TO LEAD TO.

NOW IT'S NOT JUST SOLD

THROUGHOUT OUR NATION, BUT IT'S

GONE THROUGH EUROPE AND PA JAN.

JUNE HAS RECEIVED OVER

$60,000 IN ROYALTIES AND SHE'S

GIVEN HALF OF IT AWAY.

AND HER NURSERY IS PROFITABLE

TOO.

JUNE HAS BECOME THE BIG GIVER

SHE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE.

GOD LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER

AND THE GREATEST THING IS TO

HAVE THE MEANS TO BE ABLE TO

GIVE TO GOD BECAUSE IT'S

EXCITING.
