GrandmaT, I’m in Kawkawlin, on the Saginaw Bay.

Bob, not real sure yet. Still adjusting to a mostly shady yard, after 30plus years in a sunny spot. Definitely doing some bleeding hearts, astilbes, azaleas, hostas and daylilies, will be looking for other less common shade lovers, too.

I am so sorry to have to announce to all of Dini’s friend that she passed away last night. Here is the announcement by her son Jon : My Mother Nadine Starrett passed away this evening at 6 pm after 2 years of struggling with complications due to c.o.p.d.

Rest in Peace Dini and keep growing beautiful flowers!

I am so sorry to hear about Dini’s passing. This came as a surprise to me. Struggling with her c.o.p.d. must have been very uncomfortable for her. She will finally be out of pain and stress, and that is her blessing. Her input will be missed by us all. Our thoughts go out to her family at this most difficult time for them.
