Today's flowers No 40 - in memory of a lost friend

My flowers today are my small miniature roses here in my little town garden. They are my tribute to my darling Luca who passed away on Friday and talk about my great sadness and loss.



I still find it hard to think about him without tears running down my cheeks and a great lump sticking in my throat but I did want to pay my little hairy friend this tribute here in my blog.

For myself I have chosen the Bleeding Heart and Forget-Me-Nots that were flowering in our cottage garden. No other flowers could express my inner turmoil better.



Also I will try to visit as many as possible of you but please don't be offended if I still haven't got the strength to comment very much.

Kjære vennen min! Nå gråter jo jeg også, for deg og din sorg! Jeg vet jo hva dette betyr, har jo mistet en hund for noen år siden - så jeg vet hva du går gjennom. Han vil alltid være med meg i tankene, selvom jeg nå har min lille Asterix.

En vakker siste hilsen til din følgesvenn Luca. Den berører meg veldig, både i bilder og i valg av blomster. Tenker på deg!

Forget-me-nots and Bleeding hearts really do well for this post and for what you're feeling right now. Sad story my friend. But c'mon cheer up a bit! BTW, nice presentation and the soft colors you gave on your flowers.

What a befitting tribute to Luca. Those flowers really signify how sad and hurt and how you miss him. Hugs, my friend.

You could not possibly have posted a lovlier tribute to Luca. Remember the good times and be grateful for the time you shared.

Rakkaan lemmikin poismeno koskee ja kaipuu on valtava.
Voin kuvitella surusi, varsinkin kun siitä on niin vähän aikaa.
Kauniisti olet laittanut Lucan kukkien keskelle.

I'm so sorry to hear about your beloved Luca. Your flowers are a touching tribute to him and all the fond memories and experiences with him that you shared with us, your blogger friends. Take care...

Regina said...

So sorry about your friend. My condolences.

Hei min venn!
Forstår godt det der med manglende inspirasjon. Tror man må ha hund for å forstå hvor vondt det er. Hvordan takler Ljuba det? Vet at hunder ofte skjønner at vennen er borte, men de er jo forskjellige. Hun leter kanskje etter sin venn?

Håper det ellers står bra til med deg!

Hei! Meg igjen!
Har en liten overraskelse til deg! Titt innom og se på datoen 18/5. Publiserte det litt sent, fordi jeg må bruke så mange hjerneceller når jeg skriver engelsk!!!!

En liten oppmuntring - men også alvorlig ment!

Pacey said...

Sure, I meant well when I said Cheer Up! It's our way, (Filipinos) of saying that we don't want you to be so sad and that we do understand how you feel and a little of cheering you up will get the hurt away bit by bit. So, we always end up with the phrase Cheer up. :) Again, I'm sorry my friend about Luca.

Denise said...

I am so very sorry for your loss. This is a beautiful tribute to your dear friend.

I find that i do try to visit you lovely and supportive people but at this point I just cannot find so much inspiration.
So I will just say that your support and kind words mean the world to me and I have not forgotten you. I shall repay you all a visit and leave comments on your wonderful posts as soon as I can find the strength to go on as normal.
Pacey I know that you would not have meant it light heartedly as you are a kind and considerate person. There is a differense in our cultures, I guess.

Ebie said...

Just checking on you my friend...

What a beautiful tribute to Luca. I'm sure the flowers sum up your feelings about Luca.
