Liz Cruz Cordova has used the healing power of her garden to assist with moving beyond a serious health obstacle.
"Hi there, from sun drenched California! The last winter rains gave my garden more vibrant life! It gave me more hope, too. Passion, perseverance and resilience overturned a severe drug reaction that left severe ocular complications preventing, me from visually functioning in the busy Independent life I used to know. While it's still very visually challenging to do anything, let alone garden, I've found ways to beat the sun & wild summer temperatures even soft breezes, and be out there to still enjoy each beautiful moment.
Life may throw me lemons but I still make Meyer lemon curds! And share them with friends and neighbors."
