Recently I was honored by the San Diego Horticultural Society (SDHS) as their Horticulturist of the Year—a lifetime achievement award. I knew the evening would be a blur, so I asked Laura Eubanks’ daughter Hannah to take photos and videorecord the speeches. I’m so glad I did!
I’ve since released two YouTube videos for those of you who would like to share (or re-experience) the festivities.
PART ONE is SDHS past-president Susi Torre-Bueno’s gracious introduction and informed perspective on the popularity of succulents.
PART TWO is my acceptance speech, in which I say a couple of times, “You may not know this, but…”
So, are you curious? Then settle in and be entertained and perhaps a little surprised. (Hint: My husband certainly was!)
