The Keeper of the Flowers


"At the crossroads of the great south, there’s a building that sits on the corner of North and West Main. Adorned with big white columns and vibrant red geraniums that embrace each window, it’s hard not to admire. We call it, City Hall. Many times, you’ll see a man sitting outside on his John Deere Gator, tending to those beautiful scarlet flowers, or making his downtown rounds to ensure that Swainsboro can be cherished for generations to come."

They've painted the scenes of many memories, from becoming the backdrop to prom photos to greeting the locals who walk down Main. Now, meet the green-thumb behind their ruby blooms. He is the sunshine of the square and his name is Mr. Willie, but we've deemed him The Keeper of the Flowers
