I am a floral designer/retail manager with a large supermarket chain in Rochester. I live in a doublewide mobile home in a park with my 21 month old little girl.
I grew up in my grandmothers’ gardens and really came to love the flowers I associated with each of them-- roses, peonies, hyacinths, tulips, and lilacs. I learned about new varieties and began experimenting with color, foliage, texture and height as a designer. (The vase is a perfect place to start when making decisions about combinations for your garden). Now I play with traditional, "florist" blooms at work, and am trying to establish some gardens and garden art at our home.
We bought our home in June 2007 and had our daughter that November. Last spring she was still too small to take out to the garden. I’m hoping I can engage her for a few minutes at a time and get some planting done, or at least some weeding!
I look forward to reading everyone’s posts and responding when possible. I can, and usually do, talk about flowers all day long... DEE
