Meet our Family
Melissa Matz, Founder of Blooming Betties
Melissa was born a farm girl from Paoli, Colorado and recently returned to her ag roots as a farmer-florist after leaving the education world to raise a family. Listening to her soul’s whisperings to grow a cut flower garden, Blooming Betties was born. She delights in nurturing unique varieties of garden classics and revels in the spellbinding fragrances of nature’s bounty. Tending garden is Melissa’s moving meditation and floral design her creative outlet. Melissa especially enjoys creating moody floral arrangements out of unlikely candidates. Blooming Betties is an opportunity for her push comfort boundaries and tackle the learning curves of being a small-business owner. Melissa is a people person through and through who delights in building community through her flowers.
Wally Matz, Our World and the Garden/Farm Boy
We had no idea that giving birth to Wally would also give birth to Blooming
Betties, but as we ran around outside it became apparent that flower farming was a serious possibility. Wally’s favorite garden task is watering the flowers (and himself.) He enjoys traveling to the farm in Paoli and riding the tractor with mom during wheat and corn harvest. He has a pretty serious toy farm that he owns and operates. He loves to smell the flowers with mommy and stomp in puddles after rain. Ask him to do his coyote impression and you’ll find yourself howling at the moon.
We are happiest and our best selves when we get outside. Our dream is to grow Blooming Betties into an opportunity to optimize family time as a full-blown flower farm. We are starting small and learning along the way. Scott works full-time to provide for the “Matz Adventure Circus” and Melissa also works as the Director of Regional Programming for the non-profit SheJumps. We look forward to the day we have to search for more land to grow on and aspire to hire a few employees to help with operations. Melissa dreams of taking her vintage Shasta camper “Jenny” on the road as a popup flower shop and perhaps instructing yoga classes at the home site surrounded by tantalizing flora. We look forward to infusing our values into our family business and are committed to adding love and laughter, and a whole lot of stoke to the world. We are grateful for the warm welcome we have received and look forward to sharing our journey with you.
