The Memorial Day after my father-in-law passed away, we bought two mum plants. One we put on his grave; the other we planted in our garden. His birthday was last month, but because it’s been such a strange weather year, the mums didn’t bloom in time for it like they usually do. Today was the first day for good pictures of the blossoms. I love having this living reminder of a loved one no longer with us here.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) THAT FEATURE A MEMORIAL OF ANY KIND.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

Reblogged this on All About Writing and more.
Not quite the same Nancy, however, ater my Father passed away I kept a whiteboard with his writing on it and a couple of paddock gates which had made. along with dome of his tools they have sat in my shed untouched in the nearly twenty years since.
I love this.
Although I am showing a stone monument in my contribution today, I love the idea of a living memento so much more.
We just lost another friend this week. Over all, it has been several years of losing one friend and/or family member after another. I think I’ll bow out of this one, if you don’t mind. Next week is a new one.
Marilyn, I completely understand. Have a wonderful week, and stay safe.
