Remembering: 5 years

"who knows if the moon's
a balloon, coming out of a keen city
in the sky - filled with pretty people?"

E. E. Cummings

Today is the five year anniversary of my dad passing away, and these are his roses. His rose bush blooms beautiful pale to vibrant peaches, yellows, oranges and pinks every year, a beautiful reminder.

  1. Flowers never really die the way people do. I never believed in the soul anyway.

  2. Hannah, my thoughts and love are with you.

    You are doing your father incredibly proud, of that I am sure. You are an incredible young woman, and a ray of light in my life.


  3. What a beautiful reminder. It's incredible how much you can say in so few words.

  4. It's so lovely that these flowers act as a beautiful reminder for you.

  5. the roses are beautiful especially because of the memories in them. i hope you're doing okay...

    xoxo, rae

  6. I am so sorry about your loss, these roses are lovely and its good that you keep him in your memory with so much love. They say people die only if we forget about in a way his spirit is still alive!

  7. Lots of love to you & your family. This is such a lovely little tribute & reminder. I've always wanted to just be buried under a tree or flowers, so I could live on through them in some kind of sense. One of my favourite quotes, from one of my favourite artist (Edvard Munch) is - "From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity." A lot of people think it's a little morbid, but I think it's such a beautiful way of looking at it.

  8. Those are such beautiful flowers. I'm sure this day was hard but I hope you were able to have a happy time reminiscing about all the good memories too. Lots of love <3 xx
