Friday Fun Fact #13 About Irene...


5.5.23:  Fact #13I am a garden whisperer (just like my mom).

I have a green thumb and that’s one thing I have in common with my mom.  My childhood memories are filled with images of my mom tending to her small garden in sunny California; and later in Washington, working in her large, abundant garden filled with fruit trees, many roses and other flowering plants, and vegetables.  Mom is in her garden tinkering and loving her plants come rain or shine.  I love this about my mom.  Her garden is her happy place.  And now, I realize that this garden joy is also within me.
