My Grandparents home in Santa Maria, CA


Waller Ranch #10

The home I grew up in, in Arroyo Grande, CA. Picture it with a tall hedge protecting it from the field with my mother's passion inside, her lovely gardens. After her death my sister butchered the yard.



Grandfather, Lionel Duncuff Waller

He immigrated from England 1905 and built the world's largest flowerseed company, wholesale only which is why you have never heard of it. He is in the boater hat.


My Father, Lionel John Waller

He was president of the company from after WW2 until his passing.


My son, Christopher Lionel Waller

On his wedding day, 18 years with Tara, 2 children, finally married.  Chris is one of the best skier, climbers, and is the best dad I have ever seen.
