Madingley Hall, gardens and health. (8/18)

via Madingley Hall, gardens and health. (8/18)


Just short of fifty years of holy matrimony, I am blessed to be a mother of two and grandmother of seven. Much of my writing speaks to the culture and tradition of the Deep South, where I spent the first thirty-five years of my life before relocating to the Pacific Northwest. As a poet and essayist, I’ve published both online and in print media. In mid-February 2019, I launched Roses in the Rain: A Daughter's Story, following a successful couple years of Invitation to the Garden, both on Watch for upcoming installments to the memoir blog every Tuesday. The garden posts follow on Friday/Saturday. I look forward to hearing from you all!

  1. Thanks for sharing, Jo! As I’ve said before, I only ever get to ‘visit’ gardens through photos and posts such as these… sadly, except for common flowers and trees, I don’t know plants. It was interesting to note what some of the plants and flowers I come across, by name only in novels and poetry, look like.
