Hello! I’m a general education teacher over at Barnette Magnet. My husband and I made the journey from southeastern Georgia about 15 years ago now. Since, we’ve grown our family by 2 girls and multiple animals. Up to this point my botanical journey has been more of an observer of all the beauty. I really do try to learn and do better about growing various things, but my black thumb seems to keep me from becoming proficient. I’ve taken a class to learn more about the plants we’re surrounded by but, like when speaking a different language, I fell out of practice and haven’t regained the confidence I once had.
Do you enjoy foraging, gardening, hunting? I do enjoy gardening, but my black thumb keeps me from being really successful, so that’s kind of a bummer.
What is/are your favorite plant (s)? I LOVE poppies and lilies. When I went to Europe I spent so much time finding and photographing poppies (One included in this post). I was so excited when I found out that poppies also grow up here!
I look forward to all that I’m going to learn while taking this class.
