I'm not sure how many of you know about Plant Delights Nursery in Raleigh, NC
I received an email notice this morning that Michelle Avent passed away after a 4 year battle with cancer.

We often talk about how ATP is a family, but we're all part of a much larger family of gardeners. We all mourn with the Plant Delights family. Michelle will be missed, but her memory lives.
NGA COO, Wife, Mom, and caretaker of 90 acres and all that dwell there.

I was just reading a old Horticulture magazine artical about this couple and their company Plant Delights. So Sad! Correct me if I'm wrong but they are the ones who created the endless summer hydrangea.

I am sorry she is gone. I met her at one of the open houses, she was so cheerful and happy and helpful. Way too young to die :*(
One who plants a garden, plants happiness.
