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 . . .
Spotlight: Hetty Ford (Dutchlady1)|

I didn't even know what Plumeria was. I was writing articles about plants and I thought I knew everything there was to know about them until a lovely lady also began to write about Plumeria. Her articles were filled with photos of wonderful blooms, the likes of which I'd never seen before and I was filled with awe. As I got to know her a little better, I found a friend who is as awesome as her flowers. I'd like you to get to know her, too. Let's meet Hetty Ford.

Sometimes we meet others who touch our hearts with their words, and we are fortunate to have them become a part of our lives. That's the way I feel about Chelle, a very sweet and talented young woman from northern Indiana. I'd like you to meet her, too.

A little more than a year ago on a comment thread attached to one of my articles on medicinal plants, I met a man from England. His response to my article was valid, he knew what he was talking about, and since I wrote of plants that grew in the Appalachian mountains, I wondered how a man from England could know so much about a Kentucky wildflower. Read on, because that certainly isn't the end of the story.

Sometimes we meet a friend and we know within a heartbeat that our lives have been made better. It doesn't matter that we've never seen our new friend face to face, it only matters that the value of the friendship begins to evolve. Remember the old song "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better..."? Well, it was almost like that at the beginning, but I think I need to tell you the whole story so you'll understand.
