So I was very honored to be invited to a celebration of the life of Sheila Lavelle, a Wheel Meet Again regular who sadly passed away last year. Although I never met Sheila she is very much missed by the gardening group, so they wanted to give her a fitting tribute.
We have planted a tree in Sheila's memory (a flamingo tree, which reflects her glamorous and flamboyant personality!) and some rose bushes which will look brilliant next year. These frame a lovely memorial plaque to Sheila which was unveiled at the event after a lovely poem was read in her honor. We then sat down for a bit of barbecue expertly overlooked by the ALS chefs!
It was a lovely afternoon and I know the gang at Wheel Meet Again are proud of the work they've put into the garden and Sheila's display.
