Pfafftown, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: There is more I could say, and lots more pictures I could post, concerning the defunct rose nursery, but I think I will leave the subject with this last photo that sums it all up: rusted pruning clippers left where last used, on top of a ladder underneath a rose trellis. I repeat: When a gardener dies, the garden dies as well.

Peter, I'm so glad that couple has you to give continued care for their garden! But what will happen to it when Frank dies or sells the place? Will you be kept on to care for it by the new owners?

I know this couple DID have hired help, but with the failure of the business, they have all disappeared.

A garden doesn't have to die, if the owners can find and afford to hire someone who knows how to maintain it. For most people around here, that is simply not an option.

I would hope that when I die, my ashes will be scattered in my own garden, and I will truly "live on" in it, "pushing up the daisies" for real, if you will.

That's really sad, one garden I care for is on a 45 degree slope, it was created by the man and his wife. Mary died 4 years ago at 90 and Frank now 92 wants it kept as she left it, it very lovely and every now and then something new catches your eye, some small thing she hid or planted to be a surprise when found. Frank is in a wheelchair now and cannot get down the slope, so each time I go I take photos and take them to the house for Frank to enjoy. Mary's garden didn't die with her, in fact she lives on in it.

Thanks for commenting, Elaine and Rodney. No, I never got any reply to my inquiries; one of two email addresses I tried is defunct and no answer at the other. I could try calling the phone # on the sign, but it is the people's personal phone # and I feel shy about disturbing them at what is most likely a difficult time in their lives. I'm sure you understand my reluctance to get further involved. I am merely a chronicler of this tragedy.
