Only Flowers For My Mother
When my grandmother died, my mom got presents. She was only 6 at the time, so I suppose it was a heartfelt effort by her aunts and uncles in Coldwater, Mich., to make her feel better. What 6-year-old doesn't like presents? Many years later, as my mother explained why I shouldn't feel bad about my chronic failure to find her a gift that made her happy, she told me about the presents.
The chain of events that claimed my grandmother's life in 1940 started innocently enough with a swim in a local lake. She stepped on a nail. My grandfather feared she'd get tetanus. Being a doctor, he had a vaccine handy. She died in her sleep of an anaphylactic reaction.
In the days that followed, as the family gathered to mourn, the gifts began to pile up. My mother would walk into her room and find her bed filled with brightly wrapped packages that only made her feel worse, empty and confused and lonely all at the same time. Presents didn't feel quite right after that.
I was already an adult myself, with children of my own, when she finally told me about the presents. For years I'd desperately tried to find her the perfect gift. Books by Joh... (Hartford Courant)Jul 5, 2016
Woman shares love of gardening, flowers
And she excitedly shows the invitation she's received for her 60th college reunion. She pulls out a Coldwater Creek catalog and flips through the pages until she finds the iris print dress she has ordered. She can't wait. Yes, she spent $100, but listen, it's a special occasion.</p><p>"I'm a Meredith girl," she says proudly of her alma mater.</p><p>The road of life that led Shirley to this farm comes filled with adventure. She studied religion and home economics at Meredith and thought she might be a preacher. She gave one sermon, felt like she had moved the audience and decided that was that. She became a teacher and lived here and there across the country including California. She didn't get interested in growing irises until she had heart trouble several years ago.</p><p>It was her brother's idea. Don Spoon, a retired biology Georgetown University professor, owns Winterberry Gardens in Cross Junction, Va., home to more than 6,000 iris cultivars. He and his wife, Ginny, have won top awards nationally and internationally.</p><p>"He said, 'You're not going to be a cardiac cripple,'" she recalls. So, he sent her some iris rhizomes and that's how it all started. Then, he sent some more. And some more. Now each fall, he sends her 200 more to add to her gardens.</p><p>The sister and brother come by their love of gardening from their mother, Lilla, who founded the Charlotte Iris Society in the late 1940s. Don and Shirley grew up in the heart of Charlotte -- half a block from Memorial Stadium. "This is how our yard looked," said Shirley, gesturing across her iris garden in her side yard. Her mom lived to age 97 and grew irises from 1948 to 2003.</p><p>"We always had a yard full," she says.</p><p>But as a little girl, she was an unbashed tomboy and "Daddy's Girl" and she had scant interest in her mother's prized collection.</p><p>But years later, she still remembers some of her mother's advice about iris.</p><p>"Mama said they were divas, don't make them mad," Shirley said.</p><p>When brother Don laid down his challenge to grow irises, Shirley took the suggestion on with gusto. She's earned a reputation among gardeners across the Southeast for her collection. They come from near and far to buy them. Just a few days after my visit, a garden club from Tryon was set to visit Knoxhaven.</p><p>"It's going to be chaos," she says with a wide smile, obviously delighted. Her daughter, a nurse, will be there to help her take orders and then in the fall -- September is the best time to plant them -- Shirley will send them out by mail.</p><p>Each April and early May, about 75 of her regulars visit the farm to see what's in bloom and to place orders. She counts between 250 and 300 gardeners as customers.</p><p>"Sometimes I have a dickens of a time keeping track of them," she says. She's been known to pick up the phone and call customers to see how the irises she's sold them are doing.</p><p>The visits to the farm, made by appointment, are important to some iris fans because they want to see the color and bloom for themselves, not trust a photo in a catalog.</p><p>Shirley also sells her irises at the Foothills Farmers Market in uptown Shelby, where she's known as the "Iris Lady" for her signature purple outfits and her lavender compact car. With each purchase, she hands out a three-page set of instructions and care tips she's put together.</p><p>Irises are among the easiest perennials to grow -- drought resistant and not too picky when it comes to soil. And their drooping bea... (BlueRidgeNow.com)Jun 10, 2016
