for elspeth


I am so sad to read of the death of Elspeth Thompson. I will miss her warm, generous and engaging writing and her beautiful photographs. She was an inspiration to me in many ways. My thoughts are with her family.

I only discovered Elspeth's blog a couple of weeks ago. I must say the news of her death was a shock to me. She was too young. I was certain to return to her inspirational posts. I have left a condolence to her hushand and daughter. x

That was a shock to read. There's an obit in the Telegraph now. People could rely on her to bring beauty into this world and I feel so sad that she was suffering severe depression.

Diana, I have just read your comment at my blog. Yes, Justine's tribute is so moving and beautiful. I have been in a shocked daze all day, like so many of us whose lives she touched. I feel so desperately sad for her husband and young daughter. Some time ago, when I mentioned on my blog that I was reading 'The Urban Gardener' she sent me a wonderful email - that was the kind of caring person that Elspeth was. Such a sad loss.
