I was so excited to move to Knoxville from Milwaukee area. Every night I drove home from work I saw beautiful mountains, water, sunsets, and the weather was absolutely amazing! I admired my neighbor's beautiful garden and I couldn't wait to plant flowers.
One Saturday i set out to plant a full flat of pansies in my new front yard. I was pretty sure I would be out there an hour or so on a beautiful spring day. I carried my trusty trowel and laid out my flowers. When I tried to dig my first hole I was shocked. How could things grow in cement? My trowel bent and my flowers wilted. I sat and stared at my project. I tried not to be upset, how irrational to be done in by pansies?
There was Edna Butler working away in her garden. She wasn't sweating, swearing, or breaking her garden implements. And she had an incredible garden!
My first memory of Edna was her concern for me. She watched me go about my task and knew what i was going to happen. She was so kind. She was encouraging, supportive, understanding, empathetic, and so patient. We probably started and ended most conversations about gardening, but we also talked about life's choices, family, and travel. Edna was a brilliant gardener, and the knowledge, patience , and love she shared with me was a part of the nurturing I needed to settle into my life and love it here in Knoxville.

May Almighty God continue to bless the Edna Butler family. Miss Edna was the hardest working lady in the neighborhood with her plants and beautiful flowers.
