I started a commemorative garden for my Mother who has recently passed away. I want to create a place of peace and beauty in remembrance and honor of my Mother's life. This will be a work in progress, that I will add to over time.
Yesterday I also planted Columbine in honor of the students who died 12 years ago to the day in Colorado.
This garden is where my children's sandbox used to be. While I was planting flowers, I noticed a little matchbox car in the soil I had just dug.
Then I found a marble.
Pretty soon I was sifting through the dirt and I found 7 matchbox cars and 44 marbles! My youngest child is now close to 30, so I imagine these toys have been buried for close to 20 years! And so, all of the generations are tied together in one little garden, all started by my Mother and her Mother before her, Beatrice Euphemie.
