Katherine

Hello to all the members of Arden Park Garden Club,

Let me start off by saying change is inevitable to make progress. Change allows for ideas and growth. Remaining the same in your club creates death; we need new ideas and growth.

I was born in Washington, and moved to Sacramento at 6mos. I grew up in Sacramento, graduating from college. I married and moved back to Washington briefly, then moved back to Sacramento. I lived in the Bay Area for 12 years where I had a showplace garden, done by my husband and myself.

My love of gardening came from my aunt (Rene), who lived out by the airport on a farm. She gave me a small packet of seeds to plant in a small patch. That’s where it all began for me.

I have visited gardens in Canada, Mexico, Hawaii, and all over the USA. The vibrant colors, size and smell have always intrigued me. I enjoy putting combinations of plants together in big pots. They make a big statement when mature. I also belong to the Geranium Club. I like red geranium hanging baskets. My home d├ęcor is red, white, and blue, and has been for 30 years.

Let’s all move forward this year, learn new ideas, and teach each other. This is going to be a fun and great year together.
