Flower Flag – Visiting (1013)

In 1942, the good folks at Bodger Seeds in Lompoc decided they could do something really spectacular to support the war effort. Planting a 12-acre American flag of flowers was their way of saying thanks to all the Americans who were fighting the good fight. The company replanted “flags” in 1942, ’43, ’45 and 1952. Huell revisits the site fifty years later as Bodger Seeds recreates history with a new flower flag.
