Sedums  are very good Justin, and easy to grow.

Welcome to the madhouse Jac! 

Here's hoping you get plenty of good weather this year to enjoy sitting in your paradise

What a lovely story Mikey 

I know many people find cemeteries and graveyards a bit forbidding and scary but I actually quite like them, even though I get upset going there. The one I visit is where my niece is buried and some of my parents ashes are scattered on the grave. It's very well kept and I find it very sad seeing them in such a state of neglect so what you're doing is wonderful. I hope you continue to get so much out of it.

I've just bought Constance chicky. It's by the back gate and very pretty. Nice bright foliage too. Think I posted a pic on the garden gallery. It's a bit tangled as it had obviously been in the pot a while but it'll be better next year.

So sorry Dove. All you can do is be there for her as best  you can. The same thing happened to a friend of mine a few years ago. She lost her best friend to cancer. Diagnosed in October and died the  following June. She was 48.

Verd - if only we could all go peacefully in our sleep when the time comes. Unfortunately we don't get to choose.

Hugs to you both. x

Yep - that's the one lily. It gets called by both names. It's very pretty if you have it somewhere it can be seen at dusk as it lights up the area. I had one by my back gate in a previous garden.

Took these of my pasqueflowers and the drumstick primulas today:

Hope nothing wrong with mum Verd and it's just a precaution. 

Cleared up here so got the grass cut and a few other small jobs done. The little birds were singing away.  Can't beat the smell of newly cut grass - just lovely

And because they're living things it means more Verd doesn't it? The person carries on living too.
