Her love affair with the land began as a child exploring the fields and streams on my grandparents' farm in central Georgia. After finishing school in l976 my husband and I left the city and moved to Virginia's Shenandoah Valley just south of Staunton. We chose the Valley because of its penetrating beauty. How can you not be moved by the rolling pastures and blue mountains, the wild flowers and wild animals, the cows and sheep and horses that pepper our valley - just stunning. Mary Ann will not only be an Exhibitor, she will be a featured Demonstrator!
