Meet someone who calls herself a "Learnaholic." That sounds like someone who is addicted to learning new things, and Debbie has an impressive track record. She and her husband own a successful Nursery, she is an avid gardener and an accomplished crafter. Please meet Debbie Corrington.
Loved the article and it was so nice to learn more about a such a wonderful person. I have visited Deb at home and toured her beautiful garden. She is a very talented and kind person. I am lucky to have come to know her.
Bravo! I really enjoyed reading your interview. Your life has been filled with the beauty of nature and family and shaped through your talent and hard work. Your R & R time is being as productively and your positive outlook is shining through. & to a fine lady.

Wonderful story Deb I enjoyed getting to know you even better
I would love for some day to meet you in person and see your beautiful gardens
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
I've been MIA from the forums but I'm keeping myself busy and planning more ambitious projects as soon as I'm able.
I want to thank Nancy (publicly) for offering me the opportunity to appear in the Spotlight.
I've met so many wonderful people in the forums over the years and hope to meet more in the future! Your comments are sincerely appreciated and I'm so happy you enjoyed reading a "little" more about me.
I always enjoy the Spotlight articles - everyone's stories are so interesting. You know I follow all your project postings with enthusiasm, and I swear, you are the Photoshop Queen! I'm glad to catch up with what you've been up to thru this article. So sorry to hear about your injury, but even the "R&R" doesn't seem to be slowing you down too much. My conservatory/kitchen renovation project is still plodding along slowly - I may have everything done in a few months, making it just about a year long effort. When I finally get to the accessories, I'll take your lead with the spray paint, but pewter/nickel color vs your bronze . If timing works out, I hope to see you at one of the Virginia plant shows if you are going this year - maybe the one in Richmond or the one at Green Springs, or maybe both

And see, Nap, another thing.
You and Deb just brought some more of favorite friends right here to this thread so I could see them again. It's been a long time, Rose and Terri. So glad you enjoyed this article too.

What a delightful article written by a delightful lady! I enjoyed every bit of it, and all of those great pictures. I had to laugh out loud seeing the sock monkey with the grandchild looking very small by comparison. If I had to pick a favorite picture, it would have to be one of the rock walls or maybe the stepping stone walkway though the trees. I think her version of R and R is probably more active than a lot of people's busy days! We have a lot of rocks, but what have I built from them? Nothing! Shame on me!

Hey Terri, Just wanted to let you know that due to Deb's ankle injury and Rick's back problems, they won't be at any of the Spring plant sales - sadly this means no Lewis Ginter, no Green Springs, no Blandy this year ... I think she's hoping to do some Open Houses once she's back on her feet and sees how things are going. I'm sure she'll pop in here to let you know for sure. I'm disappointed not to be able to see her at those shows too, but trust me, a trip to Lexington and getting to see her beautiful garden (and all those wonderful projects!!!) and their greenhouses is well worth the time!
