I’ve always enjoyed flower arranging since the school secretary of my grade school showed a group of girls how to make an arrangement for our mothers.

I used to tell my mother that I’d do all the housework while she worked in the garden. I liked the garden results but not the hot sweaty part of gardening as a child. I now have a cottage garden full of hydrangea bushes, daisies, lilies and various perennials. I try to spend an hour a day in the garden to keep it in shape. My 16 year old grandson helps me a little if it doesn’t interfere with his sports.

I’m a member of Beach Cliff Garden Club and Cleveland Flower Arrangers Guild. I became a Flower Show Judge a few years ago. It is fun traveling to judge so many wonderful flower shows. Now I am the Cleveland District Director which will be another challenge.

My husband Louis and I have been married for 55 years. We have five children and 15 grandchildren.

I look forward to meeting many of you during the next two years.
