Name: Mary (Marti) Nelson
Ventura, CA
Peace and long life
Hi, My name is Mary, also called Marti. I moved to Somerset Ky from Bakersfield in Kern County, Calif. High desert country. Hot summers, cold winters, but not as cold as Kentucky. I am a Calif breed and born girl, who has live in Utah from age 1 unti 4 years old than back to Cafif til I married in 1965 and moved with my husband to Colorado. We moved there in Oct of 65 and I moved back in June of 66 to Calif. My husband finished up in CO and joined me about 2 months later. I had been working horses and started training horses after we settled back in Calif. And we bought an Arabian colt in hopes of starting an Arabian ranch. Sold the colt when it turned out he wasn't good enough to be a stud and purchased an older stallion that already had some kids out there. In 1978 we were divorced. In 1982 I suffered a back injury in a fall in the yard and had to give up the horses if I wanted to continue to be able to walk for a few more years. I'm still walking but having more trouble now and am not receiving disability payments. I do miss my horses, hiking and camping. But I can still go fishing.

I have one son, now age 41 and a 3 year old grandson. They still live in Ventura, Calif. Thats near the beach. My son sent me a webcam so that I can watch my grandson grow up. Next year they plan a trip to Disneyland, the first for my grandson. My son is working with me to save up money to get me out to Calif for that trip.

I have two cats, Shorty and Ginger. Both recused and my good friends who traveled from Calif with me. I don't have any pictures yet of Shorty to post (he hides everytime he sees me with a camera) but heres a picture of Ginger on the trip out here.
I'm going to shock the neighbors around here when I have this place all in flowers. Around here is GREEN lawns and maybe a rosebush or 2 or they have nandina.
I'm planting Hydrangea, hibiscus, every flower I can get my hand on seeds or plants for adn putting in a shade garden. I NEED COLOR! I NEED FLOWERS! LOTS OF FLOWERS!!!!

Gardening in Kentucky will be a learning time for me. SOOOO. Any information, suggestions or help is appreciated. Greatly appreciated!!
