Roses for Mama 2016


My mother died 19 years ago today. It’s never a good day for me, and somehow the day before is worse. I have her beloved peace roses growing in my garden, and I think of her every time I see them. She wasn’t a gardener at all, but passed the love of this particular rose on to me.

I just wish I could share them with her.

If you love any of these photos, please save them, but share with someone you love. I would feel as though you are spreading the love of the peace rose on behalf of my mama.

  1. I am sorry for your loss. As you share these roses with your family and all of us, you are paying a wonderful tribute to your mother. The loss of a loved one is hard, and no words can really help. Know we are thinking of you. Warm hugs

  2. Stunning, dear Spidey. I can practically smell them. I think we’ve shared in the past that my beloved dad died on this day also, 16 years ago. Strange coincidence. Hugs to us both on this significant day.

  3. Beautiful roses to remember your mum by. Remember she is still with you in your heart and that is what is important. Virtual hug coming your way.

  4. I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope the roses bring you comfort as you remember your mama. My own mama’s birthday is tomorrow, and I realize we won’t have so many birthdays anymore.

  5. My ‘Missing Ma’ day is in March. 32 years now. As for wishing she could see your roses, I bet she can, somehow… Thank you for the beautiful bouquet you’ve shared with us today.
