My guests today are, Sheriff Reed Bennett and Marly Hanson from Dreyerville, Michigan. Their tale can be found in A SONG FOR MY MOTHER, a novel creation by Kat Martin.
Kat: Very nice to be here.
Kat: I’m afraid, being a workaholic, I have zero time to garden. I do however love flowers and almost always have fresh flowers in my house.
Kat: Like Marly, I love roses – pink and yellow are my favorites. I love strawberries and peaches.
Kat: My husband does the gardening in our family. We usually have so many veggies in the summer we can’t eat them all!
Kat: Strawberries and peaches smell great. Lilacs and jasmine are marvelous.
Kat: I bought my husband three of those upside down tomato plant growers. He could never get tomatoes to grow and that year we had big fat juicy ones.
Kat: Roses show up a lot. I wrote two books - The Silent Rose, and Scent of Roses - that had them in the titles!
