((Hugs)) Dove - she will smell the flowers, and she will have heard your voice in her dreams too.....all so much a part of making her peaceful.  Such difficult times, hope you are giving yourself plenty of headspace too.

Morning Dove, Morning Keen

Wall to wall sunshine here, and cold but no frost.  Just been to unwrap my GH babies, who would have rather stayed tucked up til a bit later (obviously becoming teenagers) ......but needs must, and I must be on my way.

Tales of mountain moving (or NOT) and pink hair made me smile yesterday, whilst cowardly PM senders made me.  Some folks seem to make more use of PMs than they do open posts .....very strange

My heart goes out to you all LilyP - I know how scary heart problems can be.  Hope you get some good news about treatment options soon.  Sending as many positive thoughts your way as I can.

Sounds like a great day out Liri - lots of treasures there.  A peachy flowered saxifrage sounds gorgeous. Keep meaning to ask you which day you are going to Chelsea?  I am going to be there with my Dad and sisters on the Tuesday.

escaped the frost here, but the rest of the week looking dodgy.  All my seedlngs are now in the cold GH, being covered at night with propagator lids.  Think I may add a layer of fleece for the next few nights as an insurance policy.

Right, gotta go.....places to be, people to see and all that jazz

4 could be exochorda 'the bride" - will be able to tell better when the flowers open.  If it is, then when the flowers are over you end up with seed pods that look like little star anise.
