Cinderella update

15 comments


Bloomer mentioned that a Heuchera in her ‘Summer Pots’ photo was gifted from GoY member Cinderella a few years ago. Dottydaisy asked if anyone hears from Cinders (Sylvia) these days as she hasn’t been around on the site for a while.

I keep in touch with Cinders by e-mail and she said yesterday that she often thinks of us all when walking round the garden as there are so many plants in it from GoYers.

She currently has a back problem, so no bending allowed but it isn’t stopping her from picking her Runner Beans!

She no longer has a car, but the Bus Pass is useful and she still helps out at Country Market once a month.

Here are a couple of photos of her garden, all looking lovely as ever.

Cinderella also said "You never know, I might turn up on GoY one of these days!

I hope she does, when she feels the time is right.

I remember Cinderella. Her garden was always a pleasure to see.

I must say I miss many of the 'old' members who seem to have given up, but I also have periods when I don't come on myself.
Sometimes it's nice to have a break :)

Please wish Sylvia all the best from me next time you send her an email Shirley x

I don't particulalry remember the garden from these pics but I certainly remember Cinderella. Wonder why she doesn't come on any more?

Karen, so we must blame her for you starting your collection of Heucheras!

Callie, I shall pass that message on next time we 'talk' .

Hywel, I looked back on some of her blogs from a couple of years ago and was surprised to see how many members have left. Shame, but life poses other interests I guess. Will definitely pass your good wishes on to her :o)

Thanks Klahanie.

Paul, I can't answer that one, but as she said yesterday she may return one day.

Thanks Shirley for your info on Cinders.........I remember her from the time she visited our open garden, she bought some plants with her, and I think she went away with a Mina Lobata please say hello from me........did she come with you or Floribunda (what happened to her) sorry!! here I go again.......lol:-!:-!

Sandra, glad you have seen this and Sylvia says to say hello to you!

Angela, I first met Sylvia in May 2011 at your garden. She had been driven there by Flori and her OH and we all had a lovely time, I remember those gorgeous cakes too! I know we exchanged plants, but cannot recall what they were. Didn't Flori concentrate more on her poetry than her plants? I believe she had some poems published ...

Just checked back to our blogs of May 2011, my goodness you had a lot of positive comments on your garden Angela!

Really I must have a look.....Flori had some poetry published and we bought one of the books, that was some time ago now!......

Hi everyone, I thought, after Shirley's contact that I had better come and see what's going on. It's lovely to know that their are still a few friends active on here that I know, and that remember me, thanks for the kind words. I will try to come and say hello occasionally. My garden is doing ok, but I am finding it a little difficult at the moment to keep it as I would like. Love to you all. Will be here again soon. X

Hi Sylvia..lovely to hear from you,and there aren't as many of our friends left from the early days,which is sad..They were lovely fun times :o)
Just to let you know ,the other Peachy coloured Heuchera you sent me at the same time,is also flourishing..I have several pieces of it now..Sorry,I can't remember it's name ,so I will have to check on my old blogs and photo's..that's going back a while,isn't it?
Take care,and hope to hear from you again,when you feel like getting in touch..xxx
