Exactly!! This page sings because of the subject that is so close to your heart. I love the record of your dialog. Very moving. I hope those words accompany this photo somewhere.


This is so beautifully written (and illustrated). Thank you for sharing it. In a wonderful coincidence, I just wrote about the bouquets my mother used to make with roses from her garden!

Beautiful Alexa, your feelings just jump off the page and that posy is exquisite.

A simple posy indeed and one with a bounty of glorious colour and from your inclusion of Rosemary, has a wonderful scent too. A feast for the senses. Gorgeous photograph, beautifully cropped. Pxx

A beautiful bouquet and a beautifully written post! I might not have made the connection you did, but it is right on and one I will remember.


Beautifully written Alexa!

Such a beautiful post,Alexa....it brought a tear this morning because it reminded me that when my mum died my son [aged 20] went to her garden to pick a posy of greenery and the few spring flowers there were because "gran will love them".


I love the conversations you have with Himself -really makes your personalities shine through. And the bouquet is beautiful!


Simple but beautiful :)


Wow :) That's my short, but very complete, reaction to your beautiful post and photograph xx


It's just beautiful!


simply beautiful, writing, memories and flowers.


Hi Alexa :) That is a most beautiful photo and description. I can see you must be enjoying your camera :)
PS - I just posted a "simply a moment"! I used your template and found it quite helpful. Thanks!


Beautiful . . . flowers, writing, & the act of remembering & honoring her!

Beautiful - was thinking rosemary for remembrance yesterday so this brought tears to my eyes. Glad you collected a posy for her.

Lovely basket and photo too.


Lovely flowers, Alexa - and lovely thoughts to share too.
I like to sit on the hillside, at St.James' church, where my Dad, Grandma, Aunt and her husband all are. It sits on the side of a long, Cotswold valley, with green hills all around. You can see the village at the bottom of the hill, but mostly it's just hills, sky and greenery all around. It's a comforting place to be. I took some flowers in a pot, last time I was there. They looked so cheery and bright.
Though nothing can beat a hand-tied posy from your own garden - it's so much more personal and special.
