Hi Rich, mooching through your gallery, found this and have read the comments. Alltogether I help to care for more than 20 gardens and it is suprising how many people have a corner like this. There is a patch of Lily-of -the-valley to remember a lost husband, a patch with a cherub for a lost baby and several "special" plants which recall lost ones. These places I give greater reverance to, there is something ancient about this connection, a distant memory of our natural past. Love the Coleus, lucky to get them to 1ft in the UK.

Thank You Jan!
This little garden was something I planted placing the Angel in the middle.
Then, one month later I got the call that my Mother was ill.
She then slid peacefully into her next life the day after her 89th Birthday.
So the Garden has taken on a meaning of it's own.
And that's why I wanted a picture of it before any freeze.
Which I'm happy to report, has NOT gotten here yet!
(But who would have thought that a simple Coleus would grow to over 4 feet tall?
The 2 Red Plants. So the Angel in nearly hidden.)

THANK YOU for the nice remarks.
I'm sure your wife will do just fine, but,
if she does need assistance, there are lots of gardeners here too.
This was the second night that W.U. called for a low of 32.
Fortunately for us, it has only gone down to the low 40's.
So the Gardens are still growing and blooming. More flowers opened just this morning.
I'm so glad I moved to Georgia, knowing Wisconsin's growing season is long over.

Beautiful flower garden-my wife is trying to get an area to look just like this! (got the marigold handled!) Hope the cold didn't make it that far south.

About richteas


Hello Everyone, I was born and raised in Wisconsin though I've done a fair share of traveling. At 48, I was forced into early retirement by "A Doctor's Error" and in July of 2009 I relocated from Wisconsin to Georgia. (They told me the winters were warmer and "No Snow." Since moving, we've all, not just I, have experienced a Much Colder Than Normal Winter, and SNOW where it just wasn't suppose to happen...LOL Thank God my Wisconsin blood hasn't thinned too much! LOL Take Care Richard T. (P.S. Can I say "I LOVE WeatherUnderground!"?
