This is my grandmother - my mom's mom - we called her Reenie the
flower lady. she had a serious green thumb. she was known to have
grown more variety of tulips than the actual tulip festival in
Holland one year. she actually bred a lot of lots of things. she
had 13 children, 33 grandchildren, 35 great grandchildren and 3 great great grandchildren. about 20+ cats, she raised hamsters for awhile in her basement, I could go on... when my grandfather passed away in about 1980 - she slowly but surely converted their 2-3 acres of yard & vegetable/cornfields into FLOWERS.
