Bridget Collins is lives in Ravenna with her coder husband and three wild boys. They live in an urban cottage they call The Burrow because it looks and feels like a hobbit hole. She loves to adventure into the wildflower woodlands, mossy waterfalls, and grey sand starry expanses of the Pacific Northwest. Collins forages almost all of her creations from foliage and flowers plucked from sidewalks, meadows, and woods in her neighborhood. She has a small garden in the city, and her mother has a big rambling secret garden filled with old english roses in the sea town of Edmonds where she grew up. She is excited to be joining up with SJCC to celebrate gardening this spring.
