Linda Holmes-Cook | Growing a legacy is a labor of love

Someone once told me that nothing worth having is easy — if it is worth having, it is worth working for. In my work as a school counselor, children often told me that something they were struggling with was “hard.” I would agree, but would remind them that they CAN do hard things. This is true as well for dahlia growers, especially in North Central Washington.

Linda Holmes-Cook | Dahlias: Stress relief on a stem

I don’t remember the first time I realized what good medicine it was to walk through my dahlia garden. Oh sure, I knew how good exercise was for me, and gardening certainly provides that. We also know that there is a direct correlation between stress and overall wellness, and that being active is better than being sedentary. But therapy? Seriously?

Linda Holmes-Cook | Why I have a passion for dahlias

As one of eight children growing up in Snohomish County, I often felt like there was never enough of anything to go around. We dressed in homemade clothes or hand-me-downs, our shoes were mended with half-soles made out of old tires, and all eight of us were bathed every Saturday in the same tub of rapidly cooling, graying water.
