Lily's Summer Spot

I was in my hometown in Virginia for a few days this past week visiting friends and family. As usual, it was special to be able to spend time at Lily's spot. I had been wanting to take fresh pink Gerbera Daisies (I love pink daisies!) to Lily for summer for months and finally got to do so. My birthday is on August 12th, so I'm glad there will be some pretty flowers there then. I put water and plant food in the vase and they've been staying beautiful for days. I cleaned off Lily's stone and pulled weeds around her spot. One day while I was there, a couple men were there mowing the grass, so I was glad I could see it looking nice. I also saw three people visiting the cemetery twice while I was there, which is very unusual. I never see anyone there (besides the people who are with me). One man that we saw is actually a distant cousin, on my grandmother's side of the family. It was quite interesting when we spoke with him.

My sister got quite a few lovely shots of me with Lily's stone.
