STINGER'S GREEN THUMB
My good friend, and bee keeper,
Joy Stinger (real name)
gave me a personal tour
of her 3rd story greenhouse,
and showed off her bonzai collection,
and rare tropical blooms . . .
including her fragrant brugmansia . . .
a pineapple geranium . . . and
her prized huernia zebrina,
better known as the "Life Saver plant."
Lots of tender, loving care
for this upper story greenhouse,
in addition to her 24 bee hives,
booming wholesale honey business,
backyard vegetable garden,
year long aviary, tropical fish,
basement rabbit hutch
and handmade beeswax figurines
(from antique German molds.)
As I left, Joy waved and said
"just wait till you see this
year's Christmas decorations."
(In her 80's, and going strong.)
