Remembering Dad

waiting to be planted

My Dear Dad would be celebrating his 79th Birthday today

It is his first birthday since he passed away in March
It has been a day of tears, happy and sad ones

I missed not being able to phone him up and wish him a happy birthday this morning

I had been thinking for a few days how I would like to spend the day

Phil was going to take the day off and we could go somewhere nice for lunch, however they are too flat out at work, which was okay

So I visited the garden centre and bought some potted colour, yet to be planted

there is nothing like colour on a rainy day to lift the mood

I also wamted to buy this rose, as Dad grew and loved his roses

it's called Father's Love

unfortunately it is so popular, they were out of stock until next month,

so I ordered one

I already have this one, Mother's Love in my garden which I planted 2 years ago

They will take pride in my garden next to each other.

Happy Birthday Dad
Love you always.

I think buying some flowers, and ordering the Father's Love rose is a wonderful day to remember your Dad.

I'm sorry to hear about your father. It's hard to miss someone. The roses are a lovely commemoration!
