I was going to look for something new to photograph, and then realized that the picture I took last week is an ideal image.

The post is the marker for my Mum's grave, until we can get a stone put up.

What a beautiful spot. My condolences on the loss of your Mum. We are currently trying to organise ourselves to get my Mum's headstone put up, coming up to a year after her death, and to decide on the colour, lettering, wording etc...

It was hard enough deciding on things for the funeral, but for that permanent memorial, it is so much more important.

Hoping you find the stone and words to commemorate your mum, soon
*hugs you*
Thank you - it has been a tough few months
It is a very good picture for the prompt - and it is a lovely spot for her.
She would love this space - in fact in the past had liked walking through this cemetery.
This is a beautiful resting place, with the tall trees, the bright green grass and those delicate pink flowers.

I'm sorry for the loss of your beloved Mum. *hugs*
The green grass is natural, although the small flowers are actually artificial ... we wanted something to show that she was cared for, even in this winter weather we are having.
*nods* It wasn't until my own mum died that I appreciated why people would decorate a grave with artificial flowers. It shows, as you say, that the loved one is cared for and that the family didn't want to leave the grave bare during the colder seasons.

The ones you chose are lovely, they look very realistic and have a sweet, humble character to them. I think they're absolutely charming!
I don't like seeing dead flowers, and with this winter we didn't want to just leave a bare space, so this was a good compromise.
I'm sorry for your loss; my condolences.
The flowering plants are lovely.
Thank you - we didn't just want to leave bare ground, especially in the winter.
