It was such a pretty day today - I went into my garden and cut a bunch of roses to form a lovely bouquet in memory of a very special person.
We drove to a beautiful setting chosen by Dad to be his final resting place. He loved that it felt like country while still being in the metro area and he had told us this was where he wanted to be.
It can get a bit crowded at times though, seems the kangaroos are literally in heaven here too!
They are everywhere ... quite content and very well fed. Before leaving I took a wander around the beautiful grounds ... acres of treed property with many special places to spend quiet time.
|Mum and joey not happy about the nearby crow|
I came across a mother and baby kangaroo - a joey - such a familiar sight as I hand reared and bottle fed an orphaned joey kangaroo on the farm.
|'Is he gone yet?'|
|Back to the safety of Mum's pouch!|
After spending some time we left the flowers beautifully arranged in Dad's spot ... when a very friendly kangaroo came very close ...
He stayed and watched us for a while ... then we collected our things and left the flowers ...
We turned around and noticed our friend heading towards our spot ...
According to the groundskeeper they really love the red ones!!
|Surely those thorns hurt?|
Oh well ... I guess the lovingly picked roses are already fertilizer for the beautiful grounds ....
helping to make it truly the green, green grass of home ...... xoxoxoxoxo
