Woman wins posthumous gardening honour

Woman wins posthumous gardening honour
    A pensioner has won a gardening competition despite the fact that she passed away.

Gena Skuse,76 at the time of her death, was a keen green-fingered enthusiast and was entered into the Bristol in Bloom by her daughter after she died, according to SWNS.

Ms Skuse had entered ten times over 23 years, but never told her family members for fear of disappointment. 

Dawn – the woman's daughter – carried this tradition on and didn't tell anyone about the posthumous attempt for the trophy and was stunned when she won.

The 53-year-old entrant said: "She called it her little sanctuary and it really is beautiful. She worked so hard on it and she would love sitting out there next to the fountain having a cup of tea or coffee."

Well done the Dawn, we're sure your mum would be proud of you for entering her!
