ELEANOR PRATT 1940-2012

Yesterday David and I joined family, friends, master gardeners, garden bloggers and volunteers from the Austin Sustainable Food Center to bid farewell to Eleanor in her own beloved garden.


Under the shade of tall trees and with the sound of cooing doves we heard stories of a life well lived. When we left we each took with us a small plant from her garden and a packet of seeds. Eleanor blogged at the Garden of E.

  2. Although with a group out of town, I paused to remember Eleanor as you all gathered in her garden to do the same. Thanks for sharing this.

  5. I will miss her company at our get togethers. No plant in her garden was as beautiful as she was.

  6. An awesome lady who did so much and touched so many lives. It was a beautiful memorial. I'll think of her when the gomphrena and daisies bloom.

  7. I saw her name in the paper.
    Although I didn't know her, we toured her garden a couple of years ago, on the Master Gardeners' tour. It was beautiful, as I think she must have been.
    Thanks for posting this.
