This weekend we began work on Amelia's Garden.
Over the past weeks we received a couple gift cards to Mulhall's in Omaha and decided to purchase planters to honor our baby girl. I had thought we would plant a tree; but knowing that we do not intend to stay in our current house forever, decided against it. I think Tim was relieved I had changed my mind because the thought of moving a tree to a new house may have been a bit daunting for him.
The planters will go where we go.
We can plant flowers in them every year honoring our sweet Amelia. And when the planters have seen their last days, we can break them up and create a mosaic to remember her by...
Tim and Noah were quite the little worker bees. (I mainly supervised.) I planted her flowers in the pots and Noah watered them with his little bucket, before moving on to washing up his favorite truck. ( It was Tim's when he was little, and I am certain it contains lead paint or some other banned children's toy components-so it is a yard toy only!!!)
I hope to add many things to her garden in the coming months and years. But it feels good to have it started while she is still with us. It feels good to have a place to go that celebrates her life.
