My pleasure Rob. What is sad is the money exchange from US to UK. I actually send more but by the time it's converted, money is lost. Guess that's life.

Last Saturday, Fiona, Donella, and I went to Henley and cleared up around the marker a little. We threw away some dead pot flowers, it's such a pity no one waters them... It was a beautiful, sunny day, which made it a bit hard to take photos. It's been a few years since I last was there, so it was good to say 'hi'. [:)]

Because of the last picture Rob posted of the flowers looking lovely, I was very surprised to visit 3 weeks later to discover the planter almost empty except for a random plant in a hesian bag. I spoke with White Garden and they were also shocked when they checked it, it would seem that someone stole the plants [:(!] It's the first time that something like this has happened and we are hoping to have the planter restocked in the new week or so. There are some nasty people out there [}:)]

Yes , the planter was empty apart from 1 plant when I arrived here on the 27th August.
I tidied away some dead flowers and 1 dead plant around the surround.
First time as far as we know that this has happened .

Hello naw zar, we are in the process of recruiting a new treasurer, after Rob's unexpected passing recently. We are still reeling from the shock, so please give us a little time. As soon as everything is in place, we will announce new contact and paypal details. Thanks for bearing with us.

I am deeply saddened and shocked by Robs sudden death.
Rob was a lovely man and his devotion and attention to Dusty's gravesite over the years was a loving tribute.
He will be missed.
Please keep the group informed as to who the new treasurer will be. I would like to make a donation to The Flower Fund in Rob's memory.
