A to Z: ‘K’ is for KIDS

It’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.


A to Z: ‘K’ is for KIDS

Losing a child, either our own or one that’s in our family sphere, is harder to bear. There are many plants you can use as a tribute to a young child with symbolism for grief, love, remembrance, mourning, I love you, sympathy, hope, affection, comfort, etc. Any of these are good plants to have in a memory garden to remember young children with. A few plants are more significant in the case of remembering the younger angels in our lives.

    A friend of mine tries to use her daughter’s favorite color in her memory garden for her. It was blue, so that can be a little tricky.
