Grandma’s Flowers


Thanks to my family in England for digging though old photos and coming up with many I have never seen of my grandmother, including this one, with handwritten caption.  She was proud of her garden too.  My dad says in the “back garden” there was a plaque that read, “Never am I closer to God than when I am in my Garden.”  Amen.

Happy Wednesday, friends.

Things I love: justice in all forms; flowers; locally grown food; cloth-diapering; breastfeeding; feminist theory; outdoor play; beaches; wine; Divine interventions; 4-H and coffee. Things I loathe: racism; homophobia; toxic crap; misogyny; litterbugs; the zombie apocalypse and pitbull-haters. My formal education is in sociology, gender studies, and public policy. I'm also a Lactation Educator; 4-H Youth Development coordinator a Certified Master Gardener and a graduate of a Permaculture Design Course. I've been blogging for several years on dozens of topics- everything from women's health to breed-specific legislation. But the thing I like to write about most is my gardening, food adventures and my kids. So there you have it. Please be kind. Thanks.
