Gaynor Henry
Photographer and Author
“I was born in Salford, Lancashire, UK and emigrated to Canada in 1967 with my parents and siblings,” says Gaynor. “Although I have always loved anything artistic and been a keen photographer, it was in 2009 when my husband John, and I went to the UK that my fascination really took off. For the trip he bought me a Canon Eos and I have never looked back. At 60, I wish I had discovered my knack for and love of, photography years ago. After living in Winnipeg, Canada and Chicago, Illinois (my husband’s home town), we now call Grafton, North Dakota home. When I have a camera in my hand everything stops. I don’t notice a bad knee, freezing cold weather, mosquitoes, worry about the problems of the world or anything else. I’ve recently given up carrying a purse, I just shove everything in my camera bag and go because as I tell our grandchildren, you never know what or who you will see and it’s good to have a camera handy.”

Erica Smith
Erica was born and raised on Cape Cod, where the Summers are hot and the Winters are lonely. After receiving an Orchid from her father when she was 12, she never looked back. She began growing any Orchid species she could get her hands on. Now she has an entire greenhouse dedicated solely to Orchid growing. Erica is also a blogger for numerous gardening, bonsai, and lawn care websites.
