Re: Thnks!!

Ceres!  You have your garden to help you get through this transition!  Yes!
and grandchildren too!  I "inherited" 3 when I got married and everything
said about being a grandparent is true.  The youngest at 7, Emily wants to
become a gardener too!  I'm first of all flattered that she thinks I'm a
gardener - see why they are so wonderful to have around.  I've picked up a
small garden tote with pockets like mine and children's garden tools.  She
even has gloves that she wears while we work in the garden.  What is so
sweet is that she prefers to keep them in my shed because she told me she
doesn't help her mom with the gardening at home, just here at my house.

Several years ago Emily's dad died and this year we discussed getting some
plants or a tree to plant in his honor.  It's funny how we use our gardens
to keep memories going.  Later, Fran, OKC

Thank you to all for the kind words.  I feel like I have been thru the
blender.  I know many of you have had the experience and truly understand.
All family have departed except for my brother from Calif who will be going
home tomorrow.
    Still raining and temps down to 40 last night but, wow, the garden looks
like a jungle with its lush growth.  My husband took down the Prariefire
which I think I talked before about its displeasing growth habit.  I'm not
sure what all is looked at when selecting a tree of the year but obviously
this is not included.  It had beautiful spring color and is disease
but .....  I am replacing it with a Pagoda Dogwood which I talked with a
nursery last fall and they are holding my pick. We had to remove a PD when
added on the garden room.  I love the layered form and all-season interest
this tree.
    This Sat is my granddaughters graduation.  We have a big shebang
hundred in attendance) Sat afternoon with ceremonies Sat eve.  The quilt I
making for her is quilted and now to add the binding and much back art.  She
has lofty goals which will begin as she heads for summer school.  We
purchased a lap top for her yesterday which will be a real asset.
     Tony, have you retd from your grandsons graduation?  Grandchildren are
grand!  The saying 'If I had known grandchildren were so wonderful, I would
have had them first' is certainly true.
    Thanks again to all, you are all so wonderful.  I can't believe how much
this group is a part of my life.
