She loved her perennials and was an expert on care and propagation and always enjoyed a teaching moment. She was quick to welcome newbies and was always on hand to answer questions, no matter how small.
Many of you may not know she was also a vendor and her business, Siberian Iris Gardens was one of the most beloved among mail order gardeners. She was careful to leave her vendor hat at the door and was just another gardener when she joined in the conversations here at DG, always helpful, encouraging and cheerful.
She was a good friend to many and her loss will be deeply felt here.
