People of the press love to write about flowers and gardens. To live surrounded by flowers and wildlife is somewhat of a charmed life. I began with growing flowers to enchant and inspire my child, who is now a lovely and responsible 36 year old man. He has children of his own now and does appreciate his sons spending time with “Gramma, who knows a lot about nature.” You always take a chance when you let someone else write about your life. Mostly, I think I have been lucky, and I am grateful, to have had thoughtful writers reflect on my work.
