Someone I knew had a cat that died over a bank holiday.  She kept it in the freezer in a shoe box until the folowing Tuesday when the vet was to re open.  I've always refused her offers of a cuppa........

Craig.  Got some huge lilies in the the driest poorest spots they survive and thrive best.  Have you tried Regale?  Amazimg scent from large white flowers.  The scent wafts around the garden.

Keep as much foliage as possible after flowering.  Then regular sprays with seaweed, Epsom salts and tomato food.

Punkdoc...depression is never far from me .....great credit to you to open up. I have family that mostly does not talk having lost the one that did.  My niece though fills that role, same level as me ( without the depression which  maybe I have always had but thought it anchored in events) and same empathy efc.  I found something...not being a samaritan, working with the CAB, Victim Support and others.  Gardening started as a chore but developed as passion....a passion that sometimes desserts me.  I find humour covers a lot though.  As you  say negativity is the controlling factor.

Currently been trying to resolve issues with someone but as we are both stubborn, volatile,people those issues are worse than ever.  

Fidget,  having a dog is a help too.

my experiences however do not deny me feelings  of empathy, sympathy or of wanting to help so it's not all bad I guess

Hey, another agastache has opened
