Best wishes for 2010

As I sit here, I think of the various people for whom 2009 was not the best of years.
I think of us gardeners, fustrated by a third wet summer.
I think of ex-colleagues, who lost their jobs; all of whom were married, with young children and large mortgages.
I think of people who I know who were sick during the year. Constantly in my thoughts is Rita D - a lady if ever a lady were found. We met in Belevedere and laughed as we recalled our childhood memories of hen keeping!
I think of people for whom 2009 saw a loved one depart this world. My thoughts are constantly with Bobby and the girls, as I compared notes with Michelle on our children.
May 2010 be a great gardening year for everyone; may these "green shoots of recovery" in the economy grow into forests; may we all have our health and may what trials and tribulations that come our way in 2010 be only minor.
Best wishes everyone for 2010.
