Built a little memorial garden in our front yard. A very good friend of mine reminded me that I had set out to build one and just never got around to it. So armed with sandpaper, paint, flowering plants and gardening supplies I set out to make a little “Love Garden” in honour of Logan.
According to the experts, “A memorial garden provides a long-lasting tribute to a loved one who has passed away, as well as offers a place for the survivors to remember and to heal”
This is what I hope my tiny little garden will be.
WHAT I DID:
I sanded the concrete fence behind the section I’m using for a garden, I then painted it green, with little hand painted flowers, I also painted a section of it with chalk board paint so I could write down what ever mantra/phrase or verse was in my heart at the time. (keep in mind handy work is not my thing and I now have a new found respect for painters)
It currently reads “No Fear, Just Faith” and “Love Live Laugh” both phrases that have deep meaning in my life in the moment.
I found a old bird bath among my moms gardening things and gave it a fresh coat of paint, I also picked up some pretty Chrysanthemums from a local nursery.
It is all a work in progress, but then again so is my healing . . .
Have a great week 🙂
