Well, I have already made my first faux pas in the blogging world – I didn’t introduce myself. This could potentially be a scary-long post so I will keep it relatively brief.
I am Tracy Smith – director and buyer for the greenhouses/annual departments at Waterloo Gardens. How cool is that…I am surrounded by plants and plant people every day. I have been there for about 10 years. Prior, I graduated from the University of Delaware with a BS, majoring in Landscape Horticulture. I have experience working in formal gardens, botanical gardens, for the state parks system, and working for a few private clients. The best experience that I have though is the fact that my parents were both raised as farmers and passed down a ton of information that you can not always learn through study. I am constantly learning new lessons from my coworkers, customers at Waterloo, growers, and my own experiences.
I live in Delaware and work in Pennsylvania. My partners in crime are three dogs and three cats. I enjoy being outside in all of the seasons. I love the ocean and the mountains. Coffee rocks! I read like crazy and just learned to knit this past Christmas. Sweats are my preferred attire…I am a true bum. I am a pizza fiend but I really like to cook as well. Hmmm – what else can I bore you with??? I guess I will leave my bio at this for now and just add a few tid-bits that I can think of along the way.
OMG!!! I missed the most important thing…my astrological sign is Gemini. That was a joke…you know, the old “What’s your sign” line. Oh well, at least I thought it was kind of funny.
