Angels In The Garden

Dear tea friends, today I'm sharing a Memorial Garden in memory of my precious daughter, Amy.






My bleeding hearts are blooming and I thought so fitting to place close by a few angels, given to me by my  dear daughter-in-law and sister.












I've been sitting out here with my tea when the weather permits.  Lately I enjoy my tea times alone to think of my sweet girl and seeking comfort from our Lord and Savior.  I miss her so much!









The pretty teacup was made by Coalport, in England.  The saucer with the sweet tiny flowers was made in Germany.


 









I love the verse on the necklace the cherub is wearing.










Amy loved flowers, so as more bloom I'll be moving the angels among them.


 









Thank you so much for visiting me this week!

I will be joining the following parties:  Sandi's "Savor the Summer Tea Party",  Tea in the Garden, and A Return to Loveliness.

I am so sorry about the loss of your precious daughter, my friend. I didn't know about this, but I love that you have set up a memorial garden in her honor. I love the sentiment on the cherub, too. It is beautiful and so fitting. Many hugs sent to you.

I love what you have done with your memory garden. Did you know that we are doing the same thing for our son? It isn't quite finished yet...but it is already a place of peace and quiet and comfort. I truly love this idea. So glad you are enjoying your little place of serenity too. I do hope we can get together the next time you come our way. We need to give each other hugs. Blessings and hugs to you today.

Oh.....this was so touching. I think I would do the same thing - have a special "Honor" and "Memory" spot. Someday you will be reunited and that will be a glorious reunion in Heaven!
