I still open our thread thinking I'll see her posts..

Caroline thank you for the information. I too would like a few but it's a bit far to go. She has some lovely plants in her garden and her Gention ( no stem) is the best. I have not found any at a store yet that is the no stem variety. She also has the best fern leaf Peony ever!
If you go would you please wander and say hi to the garden for me. I do miss chatting to her.

Caroline - I'm not sure from the Calg Hort site if it's all held at Carol's garden from Noon to 4pm?

Calgary, Canada

Yes, it is noon until 4 PM at Carol's Garden.
There will be people there to help dig the plants.
They have been listed and priced from $10.
Carol wanted this to be fund raiser for Calgary Hort.

My neighbour and Carol's neighbour have been taking care of the garden and the plants.

I'm sure she is looking down and smiling at what you are achieving in her memory..Carol was always thinking of others, even in her last days..

I was so sorry I couldn't find Carol's garden the other week. As it had been awhile since I went to her place, I googled her address and got totally turned around. After 3/4 of an hour driving around the neighbourhood, it was 4pm and the Garden Event was over.

We (volunteers) were there well past 5PM. FYI, the Calgary Hort Society made over $9300 on the event. I really hope that they don't procrastinate too long and honour Carol's wishes of developing a decent CHS gardening forum. It is absolutely amazing that this entire garden consisted of 99.9% perennials. Colour all season.

Susan, I have a lily from her garden that you may have for remembrance. Do you remember how to get to my house? I will d-mail my phone number & address.

side note: My DG membership is due today. I don't have the funds to renew, so this may be it. Great bunch at DG

Oh Joanna - thank you ever so much. I really appreciate the remembrance of Carol and will treasure it.

How truly wonderful that the Society made so much on Carol's Garden!!

btw - The Calgary Hort is helping our community design a community garden - Winston Heights Mountview. I'm on the committee and the meeting between our Committee Chair and Janet (CHS) is on Thursday.
I'm looking forward to hearing what the Chair and Janet come up with.

Hi Folks
I want to say thanks to Joeannabanana as I will have a paeony from Carols' garden because Joeanne remembered me! I was unable to get down to Calgary on the day of the sale.
I have an ITOAH (sp?) called Dandy Dan that Carol had treasured. I will look after him in my garden and he's on his way to me.
thanks Again JB

I also am a fortunate recipient of one of Carol's plants because of Joannabanana!
She got a lily for me, and I'm really happy with it. S'funny, my name, Susan, means Lily.....
Joanne is no longer online with DG, but I did want to let everyone know of her thoughtfulness and generosity in getting this lily for me. I don't know it's colour, however it will be a glorious surprise next year when it blooms!
