A gardener to remember


Margaret Rainwater Moseley

May 28, 1916 - April 28, 2015

What wonderful gifts you gave us, welcoming us to your garden and sharing your plants and your great enthusiasm for people.

You've been an inspiration to so many.  We'll never forget you, and we'll always cherish those words you said so often: 

"Gardening is so exciting - watching over plants and waiting for them to bloom.  There isn't anything like it.  I wish everybody could have a garden."

  3. I never knew Margaret, but I felt like I did. Through your posts, your book, and talking to Tara, I felt like I was a friend. So sorry to hear of her passing, but she will be an inspiration to gardeners far beyond her years!

  4. It's sad to know her time with us here is over. Martha, your sharing of her garden, her thoughts, her exuberant personality, and her extraordinary knowledge and gardening accomplishments is appreciated. Your beautiful book "A Garden To Remember" was the perfect and timely tribute to Margaret and her special talents.How great that she had such a book about her garden and herself for the last two years of her life on earth! Her soul is now blooming in springtime, in a heavenly garden. Although I did not meet her, I feel that I know her. Thank you so much for your devotion and sharing of this great lady with us.
