"Once she was drawn into the fray..."

"Once she was drawn into the fray, once involved in transplanting or weeding or thinning or pulling deadheads, she forgot all else..."

— E.B. White wrote about his wife in the heartfelt Introduction to "Onward and Upward in the Garden"  a collection of Katharine S. White's wonderful essays, E.B. White put together and published two years after her passing.  

Live for the Love of it,
Sasha A. Palmer (aka Happy)


  1. He must have missed her dearly, obviously! Love transcends time and space! Nicely Sasha!


    1. He said the writing she left behind -- her articles, journals -- helped a lot: it felt like talking to her after she was gone.
      The introduction to the book is a beautiful eulogy, a celebration of love and life.

      Thank you for stopping by, Hank.
