About me

Gender Female
Location Zone 6/7, Maryland
Introduction I am a high school counselor by day and a landscape architect or possibly farmer in my dreams. I volunteer as a DC Master Gardener. In spare moments, I am a freelance writer with national publication credits. I have also been a symposium speaker. I record my family and garden ramblings on Greenish Thumb for posterity and to share the probably mundane, possibly profoundish thoughts that only other gardeners would smile, nod their heads at and say, "oh, that's so true!". This is also my space to post the photos that we gardeners are endlessly taking - and that our non-gardening friends really could give a *&$^ about. I'd love your feedback. Please leave a comment and come back again! You can contact me at wkspray at gmail dot com. Thanks for visiting!
Interests playing seemingly endless games that really test my patience like chutes and ladders (aaawwwwww...too bad...down the slide you go...)with my kids, shaking my head at hubby's jokes, organic gardening, having dinner with friends, reading, surfing (the net)
Favorite Music Recently downloaded: Kings of Leon, Santigold, The Ting Tings, Tegan and Sara, Beastie Boys, N.E.R.D., Strict Machine, and much to the chagrin of my 11 year old, Miley Cyrus' The Climb (what can I say, diversity in musical interests is a good thing)
Favorite Books The Color Midnight Made, The Memory Keeper's Daughter, Thousand Splendid Suns, Miss Lonelyhearts. Recently finished and loved: Babylon Rolling. Currently reading and love: White Teeth.

Chicken monkey shoes?
