Three Orchid Displays

Orchids are a wonderful creation from nature. In fact, all plants are wonderful. Plants provide so many valuable things to us. Whether it is food on our table, life saving medicines, or simply beautiful things (such as orchids) to look at--plants are an important and necessary part of our lives. I love plants and I know you do too,  so take a little time and find out about me.

Orchid Collage

I was born in England to American parents. I guess the British couldn't stand me so at two months old I found myself back in the U.S. I became interested in gardening when I was a very small child. There was something about being outside in the open air, tending to plants (or as my mother says "smashing the plants" at the beginning), and watering them that was peaceful to me. Sometimes I would spend hours out in the yard playing, mowing the lawn, and of course, watering.

Why my parents never complained about the water bill I'll never know!

With my interest in gardening firmly instilled throughout my childhood, I began to formulate ideas and interests and came up with the idea that I would like to own my own plant nursery some day. I went to college, studied Ornamental Horticulture, and quite by accident ended up in the flower business. I was awful at floral design at the beginning but before long I was creating what many called "beautiful works of art". My interest in flowers and plants eventually lead to my discovery of orchids and my eventual affection for them.

I also attended Pepperdine University in Malibu and received a Masters Degree in Organizational Communication. It was a great school, great experience, and what a location!
