Poems and Flowers


Just want to share some beautiful and comforting poems, and some of the flowers from my mother in law's beautiful and warm funeral. This was on the 9th February. These are just a small part of the flowers that had arrived to the church. There where even pink in two different shades and one with sunset colors. Mother in law loved flowers and often asked me to look for something bright and happy at the market on the square in town. She would have enjoyed all of these. The funeral went well, as well as a funeral can go. Songs, words, tears and emptiness in silence.

Enjoy these flowers and poems, until next time.

 "There's a very special garden
Where the trees of memory grow 
Nurtured by the kindness 
And concern that good friends show. 
The roots are cherished memories
Of good times in the past.
The branches tender promises that souls endure and last. 
It's a place of peace and beauty 
Where bright new hopes can start 
It's memory's lovely garden
That soothes the hurting heart."

Gerbera, roses, baby's breath, liliaceae and some green leaves.

"What we have once enjoyed
we can never lose...
All that we love deeply
becomes a part of us."
~ Helen Keller

Beautiful white Eustoma, even known as Lisianthus or Prairie gentian.
These came from my dad.

"There are no goodbyes for us.
Wherever you are, you
will always be in my heart."

    1. Thank you! :) She was a strong and happy lady - always up to something new. She could handle the toughest battles with grace.
      She really liked calanchoes, heathers and poinsettias. Tulips and roses too.
