GALLATIN FLOWER LADY CULTIVATES A SECRET GARDEN
NEWSCHANNEL 5 - When cultivating a garden, you reap what you sow. Now, butterflies, bees, and birds visit it. "And when I came in this morning, they were getting the seeds off,” Welbern said. “So I don’t deadhead everything."

While beautiful, the garden isn't exactly peaceful as firetrucks race by it on Water Street. The lot in downtown Gallatin sat vacant for a half-century before it was filled with plants. It used to be a dive bar or café. Welbern said. "Well the eyesore is gone."
