For the Love of Ginger

 As the hottest pawty in Blogville (so far this year!) winds down, we spent part of the morning planting a rose tree in memory of our Ginger.  The idea came from Sue, the White Dog Army momma, and the WDA brought the tree with them from New Mexico!  hot pink roses - ginger's signature color!  We kept the roots well watered and so the transplanting went well- lots of rose food and water.  WHN cried a bit (what else?) but then when she was peeking at Ginger's tree from her bedroom, realized that she had the perfect view for sleepless nights- she can gaze at the roses from her side of the bed and not disturb our beauty rest!  Thank you WDA!  WHN is planning on putting in some phlox (similar to what she had two years ago) and lavender, which she is growing from seeds, in memory of Miss April, MeeMoo and Daisy, our newest Rainbow Bridge contingent.  This part of the front yard garden will alwasy be a Memory Garden, similar to and inspired by WDA and Amber Da Weenies Mama also.  Please enjoy the roses- they are gifts of love to and from Ginger.  Rest in Peace,  Baby.  Mama misses you so much.

The color is just perfect! We can imagine Ginger lying on a cloud looking down on her roses as you gaze out from your bedroom window! May the Memorial Garden always be a place of comfort and peace and loving memories!

So beautiful and touching. A gorgeous pink rose... Ginger would be proud of your strength.

We planted a memory garden when our Grandma died. The beauty that surrounds us somehow gives us comfort.
