Wild strawberries

The garden before Alison was taken, was a bit of a building site to be honest. She was in the process of building a shed during the winter months, for her bike, told you she was very practical!
Last summer the garden was lovely and she promised we would have it looking nice again this summer.
Well I have worked hard over the last few months getting it nice for her and me of course, I really hope she is looking down and seeing it.
A couple of weeks before the fateful day, she came in , 'I've bought some grass seed and some strawberry plants hunnie', she shouted up the stairs.
Actually she had just bought one strawberry plant bless her.
Anyway a few days later I put the plant in a big pot for her.
It has now grown and producing fruit, she didn't realise that she had bought a wild strawberry plant and the fruit is very small, but she would have loved them all the same.
Also she adored sunflowers and unknown to me she had put a load of sunflower seeds underneath a gravel bed that runs along one side of the garden against the fence. At least 30 sunflowers are now growing.
The garden does look so nice and it is nice to sit out there thinking of her, at the same time so sad that she is not here to enjoy it, I so miss her.
