About me

Location Half Moon Bay, California, United States
Introduction I am a gardener and a writer. Gardening is what I do for sanity, for a profession, and for the love of natural beauty. I became a gardener many years ago and have gardened up and down the west coast from Oregon to Santa Cruz. I've also gardened in New Zealand – and the gardens there share many of the same plants as our San Mateo gardens. It is a joy to be among the plants, especially when the space is shared by birds and bees. My goal is to create and maintain beauty and life in the garden. My other passion is the poetry of Emily Dickinson. I have been systematically writing short explications of her poems for the past five years. I only have about a thousand more to go! I have also written and published short fiction, poetry, and book reviews. To me, gardening, Emily Dickinson, and writing are all part of loving this beautiful planet we are blessed to inhabit.
