Visiting those who have left me.

After many weeks in isolation, restrictions have been relaxed. It was promising to be a beautiful day. I jumped in the car with my camera and decided to visit those who cannot visit me. I headed to Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park.

Many relatives are there. Some of whom I have treasured memories of and some of whom I have never met in real life. We have got to know one another through my research.

The florist was open so I went in to purchase something special for Mum. Her plaque is in the rose garden that is looking very bare at the moment. All the rose bushes have been cut back in readiness for their new shoots to give the perfect display of precious buds to come and fill the gardens with a splendour of colour once again. So, the choice for today was a lovely bunch of roses.
