At times there are special people that come into our lives. For me, Peter Dieckmann was one of those very special people and I wish that all of you also could have had the privilege of knowing him.

I see that, Lynn...it always makes me sad to learn of someone when they've already passed. I feel 'cheated'.

I have had that feeling before. But we at least get to learn a little about the person through reading what others share with us. Group hug

You are welcome Greg.
We all benefited from Peter's knowledge of sempervivum. Hopefully there are many that will use what we learned from him to further the work on sempervivum around the world.

Es müssen noch einige Formalitäten geklärt werden, dann kommen die Sempervivum von Peter zu Sempervivum-Freunden.

Hi Trixi, thanks for responding! Glad to know his collection will be looked after! Thank you for being a semp friend!!
Thought I'd translate (per google translate) for people on ATP
"It still need some formalities to be clarified, then the Sempervivum come from Peter to semp-friends"
I tip my hat to you.

Hallo liebe Semps-Freunde!

Es ist alles OK. Im November werden Peter's Sempervivum abgeholt und in Sicherheit gebracht.

Jeweils 500 bis 600 Töpfe kommen in zwei öffentliche Gärten, dort werden auch Gedenktafeln für Peter aufgestellt.
Ganz viele Pflanzen finden eine neue Heimat an der Ostsee in Travemünde.
An einer Schule in Hamburg sollen Sempervivum von Peter in Tröge gepflanzt werden.

Der Rest kommt zu verschiedenen Sempsfreunden.

Wir sind sehr froh über diese Entwicklung.

Liebe Grüße
Trixi

It's all OK. In November Peter's Sempervivum be picked up and brought to safety.

Each 500 to 600 pots come in two public gardens, there also plaques for Peter to be placed.
Quite many plants find a new home on the Baltic Sea in Travemünde.
Sempervivum are to be planted by Peter in troughs at a school in Hamburg.

The rest will come to different Sempsfreunden.

We are very happy about this development.

Greetings

Trixi, how wonderful to hear that Peter's sempervivum are being used in a way that would make him so happy, and bring joy to others when they go to the public gardens. You and the team have done a wonderful thing for Peter. Group hug
If you can, would you take some photos when they are finished with the plantings and the plaques, and the trough at the school in Hamburg? We would love to see them.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Birthday. And may there be many more.
Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Group hug
