Bit of a bittersweet day - helped a friend clear all the funeral flowers from her husband's grave (all compostable so they've gone in my bin!) and planted grave up with a couple of rosemaries and a marjoram. By this time getting a bit late, so rest of planting restricted to what bedding we could get from local Spar - White lobelia with one rogue blue one, and red salvias as red was hubbie's favourite colour, and he was an arsenal fan to boot. Bit municipal for my taste, but now she would like me to help her with a more permanent planting scheme. Maybe I'll post as a separate thread, but if anyone has any inspired thoughts, please share! She would like some bluebells, as they were just coming out when he died (at 40) and I have those to donate. They met while they were both travelling around Australia so maybe something Antipodean? All suggestions gratefully received!
