“Flying Colors – Butterflies and Moths in Our Gardens”
Mickey Gazaway, Pike Nurseries

Mickey Fishback Gazaway, an Atlanta native, has been with Pike Nurseries for 22 years. She has been a Store Manager and an Assistant Manager and now is the Garden Club Coordinator. She does the “Pikes Pick” portion of the Walter Reeves Garden Show on Saturday mornings and sometimes hosts or co-hosts the show. She has been a Georgia Master Gardener since 1983 and is a Certified Arborist.
Mickey lives in a tiny 80 year old cottage in downtown Dallas Georgia, where she indulges her passions of herb gardening, bee keeping, birding and communing with a small flock of very spoiled chickens.

I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. 
So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.

Nature is, above all, profligate. Don't believe them when they tell you how economical and thrifty nature is, whose leaves return to the soil.  Wouldn't it be cheaper to leave them on the tree in the first place? Annie Dillard
