Capture Your Grief Day 5

Day 5. Memorial - This one is easy for me.  Since we didn't bury Adelyn, I feel like I don't have a place to "go to" to be with her, a place to decorate for the seasons.  I knew we wanted to cremate her without thinking twice, I couldn't bear the thought of leaving her alone in a cemetary.  What I didn't realize was that there is a baby section in cemetaries.  To be so naive again......

I do wish sometimes that I had buried her so I could go there and "mother her" by making her grave look nice.  I have to find some way to mother her from earth.

Pink flowers have always reminded me of Adelyn, so I decided to plant some flowers for her.  It became Adelyn's Garden and I LOVE it.

I had to get this hope rock when I found it last year - perfect

As you can see, all the plants grew so much since spring!

Such a beautiful garden! Those mums are huge and the lilies are gorgeous!

I should have saved the necklaces for the jewellery post but I didn't look ahead, oops! :)
