Flowers for George

Some people still like to send flowers for a funeral, and a casket without a floral topping never seems right. I gave the flower option as well as one for charity donations to the British Heart Foundation. Sadly you can no longer pass on flowers to hospitals or hospices, so we collected George's on Wednesday, and they are now decorating my back garden.

I chose a woodland theme for the coffin spray, that sits nicely on the bench by the back fence.

 Jade managed to get a look in on this pretty posy.

Florists are so clever with their beautiful arrangements.

One gorgeous bunch filled two vases for my kitchen diner after I released it 
from the waterproof paper surrounding it inside a tall box.

That first one is so pretty. Nice choice, and I'm glad you got to enjoy them after the fact. Sorry you can't donate... that's odd.

I'm so sorry, Jean. I had a break from blogging for a few weeks and have only just caught up with your posts. Words are totally inadequate at times like this so I won't say any more - just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you and your family.

What beautiful flowers.

Thank you for these comments. The flowers are all gone now, into the green garden compost bin which was emptied by the council last week. I'm so glad I have the photos to remind me.
