A Day with the Sotebeers, Master Gardeners

A family's social life centers around the garden in our upcoming issue.

What a treat to meet with the Sotebeers during the first week of January to talk about flowers and their gorgeous garden. It’s times like these that I’m thankful we work three months ahead for Southwest Metro Magazine. Not only did we get to talk about the official mascot of spring (flowers!) while the ground outside lies covered in snow, I discovered once again why I love writing: I get to meet such interesting people, and more often than not, discover an a few commonalities. This time I learned that my interviewee used to live just blocks from my current home and that her son-in-law works at Thomson Reuters—my day job. It’s such a small world when you have the chance to sit down and talk.

Be sure to check out the April issue of Southwest Metro Magazine to read about the Sotebeers’ adventures in the garden and for some colorful eye candy.
