Our NGS Open Day 2013

It's a beautiful garden and I was very lucky to be able to see it as Lilylouise invited me when we went to England in June. Lilylouise and her OH are lovely too.

WW, I remember you talking about your wife before. It moved me.

My husband died 15 years ago, but I am lucky in that I have met another lovely man in the last 5 years. Never meant to, but it happened. They are very different.

Oh yum, Brumbull, couldn't we have a little nibble now to get the appetite going for dinner?

Thank you Verdun.

My garden really kept me going when my husband died, except the first year when it went to pot because I thought if he couldn't look at it it was pointless. But then I really got into it and each season, with new and different things growing, really gave me hope and made me look forward.

PM is private message, or personal message, star gaze lily. You can usually do it, like a private email, by clicking on someone's picture. But mine isn't working. If you hover the mouse on someone's picture you see their number of forum posts. If you click on mine it may go to my personal page where you send a message. Sometimes it just says Wyre Forest, which isn't me.

Oh KEF, I really hope you aren't upset. This is the first forum I ever went on and not really hugely long before you. I always enjoy chatting to you.

Dove PM is on it's way.

I do accept PMs, but there is a problem and Daniel has tried to get it sorted but it didn't work, so may I PM you please, then perhaps you will be able to PM me and we can keep this off the site. It's not fair on everyone else.

Dove, they were and are nice people, and there are lovely people here too, but here gets many more people and some are much nicer than others. You know yourself there have been a few strange ones here recently. I like people in both and it's true that I do post on both. You obviously read the other one if you picked that up. You did post on it some time ago and decided you prefer here, you are one of the sensible nice people here with lots of good advice. I am a good guy with a foot in both camps, I never really wanted trouble or a split but people I liked went to the other one. I've also met some of the people from both so I know I like them.

Apart from when I was single and nursing in London (heck of a long time ago), I've always had a garden, even when I was a child I hada patch in my parents' garden. But I would probably have more time to ride my horse and I would probably paint watercolours, another thing I did when I was younger. Now I'm older everything seems to take longer.
