In Ontario, we've lost one of our own. Melanie Hicks. She died of a seizure on Sunday, feb. 15th.
I don't know the details. She worked with me at the greenhouse, very knowledgeable, smart, funny, quirky and extremely original. She knew a lot about plants, more than any of us and she had just gotten married last year, turning forty this year. She was huge in the plant world, networked everywhere. I don't believe there isn't a person she didn't know.
I can't say piles right now because the loss for me is huge.
