To Pat Forbes : R.I.P.

In a remembered garden

bright under the mountains

full of love and surprise

just near the lavender,

a preacher read a poem,

gave a sermon and lead prayers,

for a grand plant lover

who created the gardens

and left us all with the nagging

question: where are we?

should we not do more?

In fond memory of Pat Forbes, horticulturist, artist and garden builder, great mother, grand mother and friend, whose Memorial service I attended this evening; 7th April 1925-17th January 2015. R.I.P.
