Soon-to-retire from 20+ year at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden (Claremont, CA). Looking forward to spendings some time with my daughter, granddaughter (8) and son-in-law in Marshfield, VT. Looking forward to catching up on my reading, planting a few flowers, and when home working in my garden. From this vantage point, life looks full of promise and a quiet moment now and then ... sometimes in blessed solitude and sometimes with family and friends. As an Airbnb guest, I am considerate, neat-by-nature, and undemanding. Thank you.
