Farewell Jo

yesterday we said our farewells to a remarkable lady;
a natural artist & flamboyant florist,
aficionados of pork pies & fine red wine,

you live on in our hearts with the immortal line
"where are me bleedin scissors"

the workroom at Spriggs is only slightly less chaotic -
Jo was in her element when she had at least
five buckets of foliage to work from,
even for the smallest of arrangements.
The put-by flowers were always a target for Jo's attention
"Matthew won't know I've used just 1 or 2"

so we celebrated her life by filling st. laurence's church in Lurgashall
with some of her favourite flowers & foliages

we all cried - tears of joy & sorrow
