The Very Racy Loquat

Words and Artwork by katherine sandoz

The loquat, originally from China, blooms in early spring. Because of this, boys who sought the company of young woman with questionable reputations were said to “run with loquat blossoms.”

Portrait by Cedric Smith

A victim of a Little House on the Prairie experiment, Katherine Sandoz spent a large part of her childhood trail blazing the White Mountains with her trusty mare Bonnie. After an enlightening stint at Mount Holyoke College, Katherine enlisted in the United States Army where at Fort Jackson she became a expert grenade thrower (and that’s not all). It is also where she first realized the warmer, southern climate suited her in a big, bad way.  With advertising as her first career, and art as her second and third, Katherine has lived in Savannah since 1995. She holds two masters from SCAD where she taught for almost a decade, has two young boys, two dogs and just one husband who she calls “Horace” though that is not his name. She spends her “not free” time on tidal creeks and waterways where she gathers fodder for storytelling and paintings.
