Hi yorkiegirl, i've just read your thread, sorry for the horrible day you must hacve had regarding having to visit your dh's grave sad

I do think an ornamental cabbage sounds fantastic, though! Will your dh be appraciating all the shocked looks and the talking point he'll become? grin His resting place will probably be geting lots of admiring or puzzled glances!! smile

Don't florists sell thse funky looking not flowery things that look like veg (i don't know what they are or if they even are veg?) which you could take as a bouquet with you?

Your dh is probably very proud that you've done this for him xxx

yorkiegirl - am sending my condolences on what must be a tough day for you...

I'm not being flippant, please believe me, but what about some alliums (bulbs) that will come up in the spring? i believe they belong to the onion family so your dh is bound to like those!

LilRedWG Sat 18-Oct-08 19:31:00

That's lovely YorkieGirl. Well done on making your MIL laugh today.

Its really nice that your lo's have an involvement and that they spend time at your dh's grave x

snooks Sat 18-Oct-08 21:00:11

Oh blimey Yorkiegirl, I feel angry on your behalf. As if you and your dds weren't going through enough at the time, I mean, who did your BIL think had planted the heathers in the first place?? I am sorry, I don't want to rake over the past, forgive me for bringing it up again. Families eh? You can always rely on them to bring you down sometimes. Glad you got it sorted though in the end.

Hope you are doing ok tonight x

Thinking of you and the DD's Yorkiegirl, these special days are so hard aren't they with all the memories of other years. I have been up to the church this afternoon too with fresh flowers, no special occasion I usually go once a week. Sometimes it is comforting other times the reverse, but I feel closer to DH there. Hope that today gave you a little comfort as well as pain, what a wonderful idea to put him a cabbage, it is so personal to him.

Cabbage is fabulous
