Daylilies and Spouses-

The following is an actual post from the AHS e-mail robin to which I belong(printed with permission)

John died last fall.  He did not like gardening. Which didn't mean that he did not like gardens .  He enjoyed a beautiful
garden, as long as it did not entail any actual labor on his part.  He happily accompanied me to the International Rose
Test Garden, to the Japanese Garden and to the Rhododendron Garden.

I  just could not get any help in MY garden.   Or with ANY  of my garden projects, large or small.  So I worked alone, but
kept telling him that sooner or later I would find a way to get him to help.  "Over my dead body" was his usual response.

All of us came together from several states to Portland, Oregon, for the funeral in the town he has born and raised in.    
There is a family crypt there, the resting place of other family members.  My daughters' garden above the Columbia
river supplied armfuls of roses for the service at the church, the roses later to be placed in the crypt, around the urn.

So, it was with a possibly, slightly malicious spite, that I left the mausoleum after the interment of his ashes, carrying the
tiniest vial in my purse.  A few days later, I flew home to my garden, and put part of him into one of the beds.  If he
wouldn't help before he died, he could darn well help after, if only by supplying a few nutrients for the daylilies.  After all,
he himself did say, over my dead body.
