a2z_eIt’s April! That means it’s time for the ‘BLOGGING A to Z CHALLENGE’. Everyday this month (except Sunday) bloggers will be blogging to a theme, using different letter of the alphabet – running, of course, from A to Z.

I’m blogging about MEMORY GARDENS: botanical tributes to celebrate our loved ones. Most of my writing is about keeping memories alive, so a spring garden is a perfect match to celebrate loved ones memories. Come join us all month for 26 different posts about Memory Gardens … and then, maybe plant your own tribute to remember your own special person.

 

everlastingA to Z: ‘E’ is for EVERLASTING

Everlasting makes a delightful border plant in gardens. The dried flowers last for a long time making them great for crafting and potpourris. Species available with white, red-pink, or yellow flowers. The symbolism attached to Everlasting, or Helipterum, makes this an excellent flower to plant in memory of a loved one.

    That’s a really pretty flower, and I love it’s name! Does it only come in white, or are there other color varieties as well?
