Who is alan smith dating
Martinez-Smith, 68, said she felt like she hit the lottery when she met retired Army Col. Alan Smith of Boynton Beach through a senior dating website. But the retired school teacher said their bliss was destroyed when a judge found her husband incapacitated after a car crash and appointed a professional guardian..
With the blessing of two Palm Beach County circuit court judges, the guardian put Smith, who had suffered a traumatic brain injury, in a nursing home, got Martinez-Smith banned from ever seeing him again and annulled the couple’s marriage.
Inspired by a childhood spent on the farm raising and showing livestock and poultry, he has led a life of promoting good stewardship of the earth.
In 2009, Smith founded the Heritage Poultry Conservancy, an organization dedicated to the preservation and support of all threatened breeds of domestic poultry.
Directly behind the cottage is the croquet lawn, which is framed by a summer kitchen and art studio.
The surrounding garden includes a fountain garden that separates two wings of garden rooms filled with a mix of annuals, herbs, perennials, roses, shrubs and ornamental grasses.
In 2015, Smith was inducted into the Taste Hall of Fame for his significant impact in the world of taste and broadcast entertainment.
Born in Little Rock, and raised in Mc Minnville, Tennessee, Smith is a fourth-generation nurseryman and horticulturalist.
Currently, he is the host of three television programs. Smith is one of America's most recognized gardening and design experts, providing ideas and guidance through multiple media venues.
Still, Martinez-Smith persevered, winning appeal after appeal and wresting control back from the professional guardian.
Professional guardians are the subject of several bills moving rapidly through the Florida Legislature.
“That was the most horrible day of my life, the day my marriage was annulled,” she said.
Besides annulling her marriage, one judge kicked her out of court and another threatened her with arrest.
