She’s been trying for years to bring older species of citrus fruit trees back into production. They’re beautiful, taste wonderful, and she loves them… Her work as a horticulturist gives her the perfect opportunity to introduce growers to them…
She worked at this for years as a sort of side theme to her normal work. Just when she thought it wasn’t worth the effort, it became apparent that these trees are MUCH better suited to droughts and super-hot weather spells.
And now, she’s being recognized, at the annual National Horticulturists Convention!
Now that she’s FINALLY getting to pack and make a trip, she realizes that she has been dressing with accents of lime and orange (as well as lemon yellow!) for decades. It wasn’t a conscious choice…
What fun! She wonders if anyone will notice that she’s dressed in citrus colors?
She does hesitate for just a moment – is she really going to be able to get dressed with this somewhat unusual assortment of garments?
Not to worry!
She’s particularly smitten with the idea of wearing her black sweater and green skirt to the awards dinner; nobody will be expecting that shock of acid lime green when she walks up onto the platform to accept her award!
Surprising is good…
p.s. Six years ago, we were packing black and white with hot pink and purple! Black and white can be the base for almost anything, in my world.
