Bobbie was the District X member of the year last year. Also last year she was nominated for the “Each Moment Matters” award by Harriet Gibbs from Designer and Diggers. Quite an Honor to get to meet and have your picture taken with First Lady Laura Bush. This was because of all her hard work at the Dallas Health South Veterans Hospital being the District X Chairman.

She’s been a member of Ovilla Garden Club and the Iris Society of Dallas since 2000. Bobbie has irises  of different varieties  being on the National.

If it holds a succulent or sedum she will plant it! Please know that you will not be bored, and she is known for shooting from the hip. Be ready to be dazzled and get the bug for waterwise treasures.  We are always welcome in her gardens.
