ulse "I never could stick to an indoor job for very long," says Louise Stewart. "I tried a lot of different things, but always quit them to go back to outdoor work." She worked as a private secretary in a girls' camp on Orcas Island, and as a laboratory technician for quality control in Skagit Valley, where she dealt with crops of various berries and vegetables; She was employed in a vegetable cannery, and as a picker of daffodils; she was a gardener in the Chuckanut Gardens south of Bellingham in an area near the water where natural landscaping was retained. "I had the time of my life," Louise declares. "I had a free hand, and could do as I wished." Wild trilliums were carefully nurtured, and native plants were encouraged. In open sunny spots geraniums and other sun-loving plants were grown, while in the shade of the many trees beds of begonias flourished. She picked tulips for a grower of Dutch bulbs. For a year and a half she was a dental assistant, but resigned to resume outdoor work; She accepted a position as a telephone operator in Lynnwood only to reject it, ultimately, for another outdoor job. "As a kid 1 literally grew up in a garden,"'Louise explains, "and the lure of nature is irresistable to me." Born in Tacoma and raised in Anacortes, Louise attended Skagit Valley Community College. She met her husband, Dan, while she was employed by his father as a picker of daffodils onhis "Tulip Grange Bulb Farm" outside of Mt. Vernon. During their married life they have lived in McConner, Mt. Vernon, Forks, and Shelton, arriving here a year and four months ago.
