I'll second that.
And I am going to quote a quote I read this morning.
Happiness: Live in the moment. Be curious. Do something you love. Think of others. Nurture relationships. Take care of your body. ....and have gratitude ...(that there are roses.)

Never mind, I see it's a synonym. Sure looks pink, though!

I understand that my partner Sandie Maclean was a regular contributor to this forum.
It is with sad regret that I need to contact you all to advise that Sandie passed away in January 2016.
I know that she put a great deal of time and effort into her research, and the garden will miss her attention to detail.
I am not a rose person as such (I was just the "labour" in our garden). I might drop in from time to time for some tips on maintenance.

I never met Sandie, but her enthusiasm for research will be missed here. She was generous in contributing rarities to the Heritage Roses Collections in Renmark. Please accept our condolences.
Heritage Roses in Australia has lost another keen contributor recently: Jane Zammit, a key figure in preserving rare roses from Rookwood necropolis.

Sandie and I had been corresponding for a too brief number of years. We met through HelpMefind and it was an absolute joy to receive an email from her. We both agreed that HelpMeFind was the best thing we had ever come across and all we both wanted to do was share the knowledge. My first reaction on hearing of her death was to think of the research materials she shared with me. But I know she spent long hours in front of a screen searching out some tiny detail that she then shared with the whole HelpMefind community.

We exchanged many rose cuttings and I have six roses that will wave from her to me. She sent me cuttings of the bush ‘Mlle Cecile Brunner’ and I get such joy every time I go out to the garden to gather some parsley for dinner, and stop to deadhead this rose with the kitchen scissors. Sandie was truly valued, and from her letters, I know she was much loved. Thank you for telling us, George.
