Plant a Backyard Memory Garden

For three decades now, my husband and I have maintained the graves of our loved ones in the cemeteries that they are buried in. We always felt a special connection to them when we put flowers on their graves. It has a sore spot for me however that once we planted the flowers, we never really got to enjoy them. The flowers we put on graves were a memorial and obviously are enjoyed by the living. The only way to take care of them was to make time to visit the cemetery, which in our hectic lives is virtually impossible. Now that we have buried two little daughters, it's especially poignant. So here's our solution: a backyard memorial garden.Plant a Memory Garden for Earth Day or Memorial Day
