Nature is my passion And growing things is for me Outside there's a never ending journey Just come with me and see!

Background Information


About a year ago, I decided it was important to put to pen how I came to have a "green thumb" and why I was so intrigued with nature.  This research took me back to my childhood where I spent every Sunday visiting my grandparents.  I soon realized that they played a huge part in the beginning of my interest in gardening.  My mother also helped nuture the love of gardening I had at an early age by helping me plant flowers and teaching me about their requirements and needs.

As I became a teenager, boys, dating, and life in general  was first and foremost , so gardening was rarely on my mind.  Over the last ten years though, my gardening interest has re-emerged and has literally almost become an obsession.  

When I began my first book "The Green In Me" , my initial attempt was only to record my childhood memories from my grandparents gardens.  However, many other stories began swimming around in my mind regarding encounters I have had with nature over the last several years.  In addition, I had a library of over 2,000 pictures that I could incorporate to my stories to let the reader really experience the encounter as I had.   I am almost done with my second book called "Just My Nature" that is a journey through the seasons in my east Tennessee garden along with several poems.

I am a stay at home mom and part-time substitute teacher at an elementary school.  When the weather is warm, the stay at home mom is more the norm.  I have no degree or awards under my belt....yet.  I just felt I needed to share with the world, whoever might by interested, the "goings-on" in my East Tennessee garden.  Mother Nature is ever-changing, not matter what the season.  We just have to open our eyes and see.


Birth Place
Oak Ridge, TN USA
Additional Information

In my book "The Green In Me", I include a variety of stories and photography from birds,to flowers, to water gardeing do's and dont's. I even chronicled my experience of trying to watch a meteorite shower and the startling outcome! I have started a second book journaling my days in the garden and have included poetry for each changing season or encounter. I hope you will find my love of nature contagious and as interesting as I do.
