Music in the Garden

I have to say Lily, I like nearly every song you've mentioned, you have reminded me of some I haven't listened to in ages - John Lennon, Woman - Mike and the Mechanics, In the Living Years. New ones on me Regina Spektor, Samson - Emma Stevens, Graham Parker, You can't be too Strong -  Dreaming Trees - The Byrds, My Back Pages - Nick Drake, Hazey Jane.  Thanks everyone 

Anyone know Yanni  A happy youtube discovery when looking for something else

 or Samvel Yervinyan? I love him so much I'd leave my husband for him, my husband loves him so much he'd come with me!

Get if off your chest.

It's sadly unusual to find anyone willing to confront racists even if they don't agree with them, the world needs more people like your son, you must be so proud of him. I hope his physical and emotional wounds heal fast, is there any counselling available to him through victim support or anything? Do the police know about the little scroats who are trying to intimidate him? Makes my blood boil.

Looks great Ecobaby, I love the way bald patches on your lawn are just another opportunity for more plants!

Happy Mothers Day.

Hugs Lily, 4 years is very recent, you will always miss her but it will get easier. My Mum was very greenfingered too, I wish I'd paid more attention, she could have taught me so much. She was great with indoor plants as well, neighbours used to bring half dead things to her and she brought them back to health in her 'plant hospital' in the utility room.

Ryan, youtube the oldies you never know what gems you might find, I'm going to look up every song mentioned on here that I don't know, It's great when I find a new (to me) track I love. My Dad used to play opera on the radio all the time when I was a kid and I absolutely hated it, but there are some opera songs that I adore now.I meet so many people who just like one genre of music I've noticed people on this forum seem to have quite eclectic taste in music, I wonder if that is standard for gardeners?

I hope if I play a bit of everything they're bound to like one or two! At least Eminem and One Republic, I like the artists you named, it's that tuneless drum and bass which is more 'noise' than music I can't cope with. Paloma Faith is lovely, so beautiful and smiley

Gardenjeanie, how strange and lovely about the car! I lost my Mum when I was fourteen, she drove a cream Nissan sunny and for years whenever I saw one I'd think for a split second it was her. I don't think losing your Mum is something you ever truly get over, like you say, there is so much you'd like to share with her every day. My Mum was a keen gardener and I had no interest really at that age, it would be so lovely now to be be able to share this with her not to mention the children, I find it very bittersweet when I hear of a new mum, especially a first time mum whose mother has came to help her and I imagine her with my kids, they're missing out on so much not having her in their lives. She was gentle, calm, patient and kind and I wish I was more like her. I don't look like her really as I was adopted but strangely I look more like her than my birth mother.  Your Mother's day was lovely, and your children sound wonderful, someone really special must have brought them up
