I would just like to say a big thank you to all my friends on GOY for all the support you gave me before and after my dear dad died,his passing in the end was a mixture of relief and sadness ,but he is no longer in any pain and that I am greatful for,but I will miss him ,he was my garden partner.We spent many an hour talking plants ,his love after his family
I walk round my garden today and look at all the flowers and shrubs my dad gave me and it makes me smile ,the peony he gave me almost twenty years ago ,my that took almost eight years to flower,how we laughed it,s now know as the… paranoid peony ..I know they can sulk when trasplanted,but eight years….lots of lovely memories to stay with me forever
A special thanks to our Eileen who kept me updated on all that was happening ,and making me smile with her crazy humour. Thanks Eileen you were a star ,
I will in time get around to answering all your lovely messages personaly ,but as you can understand ,it,s still early days yet Thanks again Janette
This is one of the roses my dad bought for me last year ,its named
Sweet Memories

Been thinking of you Janette and yes Eileen is a star isnt she
- torn between sending pms and affording you privacy so hope you able to get some time from your carers role to devote to yourself ..you certainly deserve it .

Lovely that these shared pleasures will remain with you and give you comfort.

~Ii think of my dad when I see the lily of valley from his garden and the bird table I bought for him a while ago which is now in my back garden~ he always fed the birds~he used to call sparrows spuggies!~
You will have lots of memories tucked away in your mind and whilst they maybe painful now in time they will be still there to give you comfort and a smile!

my thoughts go to you too. my garden is full of my mum's plants. every season they give me comfort and in a funny way when i am looking at them [Sarah bernhart paeony today] mum is by my side.
hold onto these wonderful memories.

How lovely that you've got that special rose from your Dad and how nice that you shared an interest in gardening too. All those memories and reminders will sustain you in the days ahead especially those, like the Paranoid Peone, that bring a smile to your face. Take care.
