This post is quite personal and I just wanted to explain why I’ve not been as active as I usually would be on my social media sites etc. Last week we got some very sad news that a friend of ours from the allotment, had passed away suddenly. Our friend’s name was Tony, and boy did we have a good laugh 🙂 Tony got his plot not long after we got ours and we’ve had a couple of years sharing ideas, chatting, shouting over ‘get on with some digging!’ the banter got us through the weeding! He loved talking about his family and the time he spent with them. We had a running joke that he was always on holiday from work.After we’d found out, me and Stew took a yellow rose (yellow means friendship) to his plot with a note on it. It has been a big shock to all of us at the allotment, and most of all we are so terribly sorry for the loss of Tony and are thinking of his family.
The reason I’ve called this post ‘If Friends Were Flowers I’d Pick You’ is because he bought me and Stew a sign to put on our plot that said this. He really was a lovely man and we will all miss him very much, Tony was a great friend.
