A Pink Bloom — A Way of Remembering

IMG_0157

A crisp day, a little sunshine and an autumn bloom. It’s the kind of scene my late mother would have loved. Out in the garden, I often remember her.

Awesome

This is only the second bloom of the eucalyptus silver princess, the last gift my mother gave me before she died. To see the rich blooms is awesome. I wait in anticipation as the little gumnuts pop their tops.

How thrilled I am that the last gift given to me by my mother, prior to the end of her earthly journey just over three years ago, is so robust it billows skywards, sways but does not break in whipping winds, and blooms beautifully. (Upon reflection, these could be the features of a well-lived life!)
