Grandchildren are my greatest joy.
I'm so sorry to hear this. Years ago when I first started at DG the people who were most welcoming were Polly and Betja. Since that time I have had a few rocky years and found some pleasure and peace of mind on gardening sites. When things got dicey at DG I followed Polly and Betja to cubits and then to ATP.. The rest is history.....RIP Polly Crying

Thank you for posting it here, too, Arlyn. Crying Crying
You are free to choose. You are not, however, free from the consequences of your choice.

Polly brought me to this cubit. I am so sad that we have lost her. She made the world a happier place.

I am very sorry for everyone that knew and loved Polly. She will certainly be missed and will never be forgotten. May her family and friends be comforted in knowing that she will feel no more pain and illness. I did not know her as well, or as long, as most but she was encouraging, friendly, supportive, welcoming and an all around great individual. I will miss her.

I'm sorry to hear this. A few years back we often traded older iris and she'd send me other varieties to try here. She was a very kind woman.

I am very sorry to hear about Polly. We traded lilies for iris and I gifted my Siberian Iris newsletters to her as I knew she would appreciate them more than I did. She was indeed very kind.

I'd like to add my regrets to those already expressed here. . . I hadn't known she was so very ill, though I knew that she was battling cancer. Adieu and rest in peace.

I did not come here for a long time but wanted to express my sorrow. We will miss her badly. I love what you wrote Grannysgarden.

For the ones who are reading Roots I put acknowlegements including Polly. I do hope she was aware that no matter what happens in life nice people are always staying part of your good memories.

I am so sorry. I didn't know her on Dave's very well, but found her on Cubits. She was nice and knew a lot about plants. RIP Polly.

I didn't know Polly at all but I'd like to add my sympathy for all those who knew and loved her. She must have been a very special lady.
