familyphoto so many roses written by Jana May 20, 2009 GrandmaB’s funeral, originally uploaded by pilgrimgirl. Grandma would have just loved this. All the pretty roses. Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness,know that, like life, things sometimes must fade,before they can bloom again.~Unknown Share this:ShareEmailPinterestFacebookTwitterRedditPrint 2 comments 0 Facebook Twitter Google + Pinterest Jana previous post workin’ it…. next post Twexperiments in on-the-ground reportage More Posts Like This One rolling a saccharine experience planes, trains, and… that kind of hell because looking at pictures of other people’s cats... survivor because today needed a rose picture page count E on violin (isn’t she beautiful!) cuteness 2 comments michelle | bleeding espresso May 20, 2009 - 11:15 am My grandmother’s middle name was Rose (Rosa, actually), so she was a big fan too; when I moved to Italy, I didn’t bring much but I did make room for two small wooden boxes, one with rose petals from my grandmother’s funeral and the other with rose petals from my grandfather’s. I’m slightly allergic to roses, but luckily not to the fading petals ;) Lovely post. Reply Alisa May 20, 2009 - 9:41 pm Looks lovely, Jana. Didn’t you mention that gardening reminds you of her? What a great thing to be rememberd for! How are you own rose bushes coming along? Mine are budding! (barely) Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
