Thank you to all that had posted your condolensces after the passing of my wonderful mother in January of 2015. I must apologize for not posting many of your responses earlier, but when my mother was trying to instruct me as to how to manage her blog in her final month, ultimately so that I could remove it, I was under some duress, so I didn't know I had to review and post comments that were received.
As time has gone on, I cannot say things have gotten easier for me, but I have learned to cope and to appreciate my mother in new ways. I miss her dearly.
I will be removing her blog very soon. I could never do it justice by trying to keep it up myself. She put so much of herself into this blog that I believe any effort by myself to try to continue on her behalf would not measure up. She was a far better gardner than I will ever be; and I would dare say a better person too.
I hope all of you that enjoyed her blog will take a moment to remember her and maybe even consider planting something, however small, in her memory.
Your comments and suggestions brought her great joy.
Thank you so much.
