And some of the pictures of the garden that did get built and was named in honor of my mother. This was her vision and I think she would be very happy with how it turned out. To me, it looks just like what I heard her talk about when she first dreamed it up. The wheel looking thing is actually a pizza garden but was not yet in full bloom. This is a place where kids can hang out, climb, read books and dream. There are other things in the garden that I did not get pictures of.
The last two pictures are of my mothers grave. I love the saying on the gravestone - one of her favorites.
