This is nothing to do with our beautiful red roses, but something else to treasure and remind us of departed loved ones.
It’s hard to believe it’s two years ago that our neighbour’s husband passed away and it has been a very difficult time for her.
There is a lady who lives just a few miles away who makes teddy bears from the clothes of those who have passed at a reasonable cost.
This is not a novel idea as I have been aware of it for years and think it is rather lovely.
With my neighbour’s permission, this is the bear she had made from a pair of her husband’s jeans and one of his favourite shirts. She has been a little teary today, but is really pleased with it.
Isn’t he beautiful?
