Today is a difficult day as it is the 4 year anniversary of the passing of my beautiful boy David - miss you every day sweetheart xxxxx our last christmas holiday dec 2010,  I have taken him a bouquet of flowers from my garden over the road to the cemetery

Thank you for stopping by and for your comments and hope to see you over on the challenge x Susan x

Oh Susan, it must be hard for you, I remember your post of 4 years ago and reading it in Berlin when we were on holiday. You must miss David terribly and I'm sure it doesn't feel like 4 years at all. That's a super photo you've shared with us. How lovely, taking your own flowers over to visit him, I bet you have memories of him running about helping you in the allotment and probably getting bored there too!

Love your today's card, and that super LOTV, hope you enjoy London and it's not too hot! Take care, and sending you a hug, Jx

A lovely post Susan and so nice to see a photo of David. Knowing your love of gardening I think the London trip is a very fitting way to spend such a difficult day.

Your Allsorts card is beautiful and perfect for the theme.

Sending you cyber hugs.

Hi Susan your garden is stunning and I am sure it takes a great deal to keep it this way and your pickings from it looked gorgeous - I bet they were tasty. Also what a gorgeous picture of your Son - he sure was a handsome chap x thinking of you at this difficult time Jo x
