A to Z: ‘I’ is for IRIS

a2z_iIt’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.

    Memory gardens are beautiful, I also like going on the hospice walk where you scatter wild flower seeds. Nice to connect and follow. http://aimingforapublishingdeal.blogspot.co.uk
