Once the weeding is done here is the next project.
This statue belonged to my mom and lives in our grove. I cannot walk the yard or drive down the driveway without seeing this statue and it always reminds me of my mom. It is in badly need of repainting. This trip around I think I will do the inside of the shell a light blue and I will do the Holy Mother all white. Before she had a blue veil, white dress and her facial features were colored in, etc... I want something simple this time around. I need to move some lily of the valley into the grove as well. They were one of her favorites. It is very shady in there so I hope they take. I also have a huge flat stone I want to move in there to set on two other stones to use as a bench so it will be a nice place to sit and meditate. All I need is finding someone to move the suckers in there, lol...
How many of you go and plant flowers at your parents cemetery lots?
We go and make sure they are tidied up. But our memorial to them is in our yard. I grow lily of the valley for my mom and I have her statue. I have my dads beach roses and his wagon wheels. Hubs has his dads irises. These flowers come from their gardens and have moved with us everywhere we go. I do have roses for Hubs mom but she really wasn't a flower person so our tribute to her is in my dollhouse. All her Christmas earrings are on the tree in the parlor. They are with us every day that way and it is hard not to think of them when I am busy in the yard or working on my dollhouse.
