A very grey morning .


Looking at my garden with a very sad heart ,lost my beloved husband of 51 years on the 19th November after a short battle with pancreatic cancer which if you know anything about it it is one of the meanest .
So I have to start to adjust to a different life but he is with me every step of the way as he always has been especially in the garden and I think being on here will help as I so enjoy all of your blogs won’t say much more but I will be needing you wonderful advice about plants and things sometime soon .

I'm so sorry to hear your sad news. It's good that you feel able to share this with people on here at such a distressing time.
A cousin of mine died from exactly the same condition a few weeks ago, and I know what a terrible thing it is.
It's nice that you feel your husband is still with you. I can understand that :o)
