This is Miss Gardenia Grower. Because Gardenia loves to spend time outdoors, she has a tan, and quite a few freckles.
(Fortunately, though, her hair doesn't have much sun damage, at least not yet.)
Gardenia loves Latin music and Autumn Salad, and her favorite color is green.
She is a Young Adult who would like nothing more than to have a Perfect Garden sometime in her life.
Gardenia has heard about a "Gardener/Angler/Cook Challenge" being run by the town of Sunset Valley. The challenge is arduous, and requires contestants to master Gardening, Fishing, and Cooking, and to make as much money as possible, all without ever having a job (and with several other restrictions; the Rules can be found in the July 4 post of this blog).
But in addition to having several specific Traits that would benefit her in such a challenge, Gardenia is also Lucky:
so she's determined to give the challenge a go.
She has thought long and hard about how to spend the $16,000 she's been allotted, and has decided to purchase the smallest and cheapest lot she could find, way up in the hills near Pinochle Pond.
Her tiny lot does, however, have a heck of a view:
Gardenia bought such a small lot so that she could spend most of her funds on nice furnishings and appliances that would keep her in a good mood. She knows this will reduce the points she can add at the end of the challenge, but she thinks the tradeoff is worthwhile.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Join us next time, when we see how Gardenia has furnished her new lot.
