Such sad news from flumpy  and Joyce.  Yes gardening can be very therapeutic and memories of friends and family can be retrieved easily if plants and wildlife are involved..  Every time I see a gooseberry i remember pricking myself as I picked my dad's crop for my mother to make jam with.  Brings back memories of them both.

Agree Joyce.  I am extending my heuchera collection with some of my birthday money and £25 I won with a premium bond this month.
