Remembering Polly: Spotlight: Polly Kinsman (Pollyk)|
By Sharon Brown on April 23, 2015
*** We lost a beautiful friend this week, we knew her as PollyK. She left us with lovely memories and beautiful images of plants she loved most. If you ever had a question about Irises or Lilies, she was the one to ask. I thought it would be appropriate if we published her Spotlight article again. *** Getting to know new people is fun and exciting. Getting one of your best friends to be in the Spotlight is somewhat interesting. Not that there was any bribery involved, but she knew very well I could have told her story without her help. But that's my friend Polly, low key, cordial, very helpful, and very, very knowledgeable. I want you to get to know her, too, because she is the one to go to if you want to learn more about Irises and Lilies. Let's meet Polly Kinsman . . .

I invite you to meet Chris Rentmeister.

Spotlight: Lin Vosbury (plantladylin)|
By Nancy Polanski on January 17, 2011
The first Spotlight of 2011 is on Plantladylin! Lin has impressed me by the kindness she exhibits in her posts here on the Cubits website. What I have come to learn about her through this interview is just how genuinely sweet she is. In fact, I joked that if you look up the definition of 'sweet' in the dictionary, you will probably find a photo of Lin Vosbury.
