Thank you @Keely it is difficult I know! They are lovely plants. Although I think mine is in the wrong position at the moment as it doesn't have space to grow but I don't want to risk digging it up and moving it!
@david It was a fitting way to remember her, she loved the garden. Maybe it's time I got another one! There are some good photographs on the website of nurseryman Chris Pattinson who is based in the Forest of Dean, that's where Ellen came from. www.chris-pattison.co.uk
@david It's got me thinking about Auntie Nell in the garden, she used to love ladybirds as "they eat all the atheists", we still call aphids that now and she's been gone 15 years! #humour #memories #family #acer
@david One awesome lady with a heart of gold and a wicked sense of humour. I got my love of garden birds from her, the robins, blackbirds and thrushes often used to come in the back door and through the bungalow to find her for food! She was forever propagating African Violets too and giving them away. Come to think of it I've had reason to think of her many times as I've been exploring GT. Maybe I need an area called 'Auntie's garden'!
