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.
Cinquefoil: Beloved Child, Maternal Affection
Coltsfoot: Material Love and Care
Daisy (White): Innocense
Lily: Purity, Chastity and Innocense
Moss: Maternal Love
Virgin’s Bower: Filial Love (referring to son or daughter)
