Here is a picture of my memorial garden for Sally Ann.
Jizo statue to protect the souls of departed babies (Lola, my dog, in the background)



Another view of the garden with Boo (kitty). Japenese Maple, shells I collected, Lilies and ornamental grass.



Sally Ann was born and died on July 26th, 2008.

Beautiful - I love the combination of the long grasses and the delicate maple leaves, the red and the green.

The first year, a whole year. I'll be thinking of you, dear.
