Autumn 2018

Autumn 2018

In late October, I went on a walk around my neighborhood and really made a point to slow down and experience autumn. The trees were beautiful and the weather was just perfect. This will become a seasonal ritual for me.

For quite some time, I’ve been working to update and redesign this professional portfolio site of mine, and it is finally finished! Thank you for visiting it and taking the time to read my updates.

I decided to embrace my multiple interests (seriously, there are so many), so there are lots of categories and sections to check out. I hope its easy enough to navigate around and explore everything, buy hey, let me know if you have any comments or suggestions.

I’ll be adding lots more projects and LOTS more photos in the gallery page so keep checking back. Thanks again!

Summer 2018

Summer 2018

This summer was overtaken by an unexpected bit of home renovation! We found a leak in our garage that had gotten under the house and made a total mess… but in the end we came out with new flooring, new colors on the walls and overall a more updated house that really fits us.

Summer is always hard for me at work, since it’s the busy season when we have people calling and coming in with thousands of plant and insect issues… it can be seriously exhausting. All the while I’m doing my best to continue the graphic design projects I’m working on. I’m grateful for the other two program assistants who work with me and support me!

We went to a few conferences for master gardener and horticultural training as well over the season, and I learned a lot about diagnosing plant problems as well as insect identification.

I worked on some major garden projects, including building and planting an herb spiral in the front yard! I’m really proud of it and excited to see how it grows and changes in the coming years.
