My Sister In-Law's birthday is today and as we organize the foundation that will be set up in her memory, we are asking all who knew and loved her to plant a Kiki's Garden. This garden could be a large vegetable garden, a small butterfly garden or even one potted sunflower. Whatever the size or make up of your garden, we are hopeful that people will reflect upon their memories of Krista as they watch it bloom and grow. Photos of these gardens will be collected and put up on the foundation's website. It is our goal, as we get this foundation off the ground, to have Kiki's Gardens all over the globe honoring our beautiful angel.
Z and I are planning a sunflower garden for his Kiki's Garden. Today we will plant some in pots and the rest will go into the soil around Memorial Day. We are hoping to plant it at the end of our driveway so we will think of Kiki every time we come home. We bought my mother in-law a dragon fly ornament for her Kiki's Garden and my mother and father will be planting a Kiki's Garden at the lake. My sister in-law loved nature and loved to garden. I know she will be smiling down on all of the Kiki's Gardens this summer and we can't wait to have our dragon fly "Kiki" visit us and our garden once again.
Welcome to Raising Z and Lil' C, a little blog all about raising my 6 year old son and my three year old baby girl. I am a former teacher and now a SAHM. I love to write about our journey towards a more simple life, our daily struggles, share cute stories and love to share good ideas when I find them. I hope you will join me on the ups and downs of this journey called motherhood.
