Anna Keene is our gardener / landscaper. She is her own boss and we don't get in the way of that. :) She's got a green thumb and vision for landscaping and loves what she does. Catch her is the garden for a chat and you'll not only hear about the good old days on Saba, you'll also hear about her loom and paper making business (but she won't talk about her hoarding skills).
