KEF ((hugs))  they did have some specialist help and visits are managed differently and better now - but she still doesn't know who he is

Ma does get a bit stroppy with her, but fortunately she's not accused Pa of encouraging the hand holding .... yet

Planting up my grandmother's abandoned grave

Posted: 15/10/2014 at 14:44

Snowdrops and primroses - that's what I want planted around me - and I have to be buried/scattered near where hazel catkins grow in the spring.

Picky?  Moi?

Hi Jess

It's lovely that you've been able to discover where your grandmother's grave is.  However, before you plant/sow things on it, it would be as well to check out the regulations relating to the cemetary/churchyard that she's been buried in. 

Although no family may have visited for a while, it's unlikely that the grave will have been allowed to become overgrown and unsightly.  Most graveyards are maintained and mown, or are nurtured as wildlife sites. 

Planting up a grave may cause real difficulties for the person who mows the area, so it'll be best to check it out first.

When I'm using the Basic Editor option, I can make some (but not many) smilies using punctuation and they show as proper emoticons, so it sounds as if your settings are behaving as if you're on Basic Edit when you're not.  How strange
