New Resident Spotlight!
Mrs. Booth and her husband, Ed moved to Kirkwood by the River in December of 2019 from their home of 30 years in Columbus, GA. They chose Birmingham as their retirement destination in order to move closer to their children and grandchildren. The Booths have 3 daughters and 3 grandchildren Little did they know upon making their move here that so many things in our world would change but Mrs. Booth says that her saving grace has been her garden here at Kirkwood.
Ulla Booth and her husband took up the hobby years ago upon moving into their home and they haven’t looked back! Mrs. Booth has two garden plots in Kirkwood’s resident gardens and she is currently growing zucchini, squash, tomatoes, sunflowers, marigolds, and a plethora of herbs such as oregano and rosemary. She says’ “I have loved gardening as an outlet during this season. It’s been a great way to meet new friends with shared hobbies and get outdoors often!” What she is unable to grow she loves to shop for from local farmers – the markets that come around in the spring and summer time are her favorite. One of Mrs. Booth’s other hobbies is baking! She loves baking homemade breads and cookies for friends and family to enjoy. Just the other day she was able to bake a tasty zucchini bread with fresh picks from her garden.
We are so excited to have the Booths as apart of our Kirkwood family! And even though they haven’t had the easiest season upon their arrival into their new home, we pray that the Lord blesses them and their time here with a loving community and joyful life!
