Transplanted city girl. Clean in the morning, dusty by the end of the day and DOES care. Likes clean fingernails. Always combs her hair, but why (?) since her hat promptly messes it up. Hates ironing clothes, but does it anyway to preserve her image. Has been known to put on make-up before going out to work in the garden. Loves being a mom. Loves being a grandma even more. Collects animals, rather they collect her. Practical. Always knows what time it is. Has questionable work ethic after a 14-hour day. Refuses to work by tractor-light. Loves ballet, musicals, and old movies. Has degree in journalism and food science. Retired from career in photo advertising to work full time in nursery. Discovered she likes garden design and living in the country. Wouldn't trade her life for anything.
