Arlington, WA to Madisonville, Texas


Lorraine Smith and her daughter
, Eliza Grantham with her husband, Cameron, traveled from the busy Seattle area to the rural area near Madisonville, Texas in the late summer of 2021. Also joining them on their trip to Texas was their Haflinger mare, Gittle, and their German Shepherd, Ajax.

Living closer to Lorraine's grandchildren in Killeen, Texas was worth the move. She's enjoyed gardening in this warmer climate, and her hands and feet are enjoying the warmth. The grandchildren visit often and love to spend time gardening with their Grandma. Lorraine is well known for her huge, colorful hanging flower baskets and everblooming container gardens.

Ajax was soon joined by Cally, a young female Shepherd, and Gittle and the dogs enjoy having some acreage to enjoy. Lorraine's new neighbors in Bedias and Madisonville have quickly become friends, and Madisonville is truly called home.
