If I were a color, I’d be Blue.
If I were an everyday fragrance, I’d be Lavender.
If I were a special occasional fragrance, I’d be Gardenia.
If I could be my favorite movie character, I’d be Melanie Hamilton from Gone With the Wind.
If I am angry, I spout off like a kettle at the boil.
If I were mysterious, I wouldn’t tell you ~ It wouldn’t be a mystery, would it?


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. Yes to the first two, roses instead of gardenia, and Scarlet instead of Melanie! I see Olivia deHavilland died recently…..she must have been very young when she played Melanie. GWTW is one of my favorite books. It saddens me that they have removed the movie from Netflix etc.


    1. The movie may be available still on Amazon. I believe I still have the DVD I ordered some time back. I just hope the book is never banned. Fortunately, I have my daddy’s old copy. Yes, Olivia deHavilland was quite young back then, but still beautiful as a grand old lady.

  2. Color, apricot; fragrance, lemon verbena; special scent, rose; character, Debbie Reynolds in How the West Was Won, If I’m angry I just simmer and simmer, but seldom boil over. Fun to think about on this very pretty morning.
