Special gardening over the weekend

I received a couple of firebushes last weekend that I thought would go well in my future butterfly garden but then I realized that it was taking forever to make the garden a reality so decided they would do better as a memorial for Molly. I planted the bushes on either side of her grave and put the walking iris in the middle until the bushes start to grow. I didn't have any mulch available so a litter of holly leaves served as a ground cover. I figured the plants would keep the animals from digging around it too. Of course this morning I found four little bare patches in the leaves. *shrugs* I think it turned out well.

I could imagine her hiding under the bushes once they had grown. She loved to hide.

It was practical too. The bushes get a chance to live instead of sitting in pots getting root bound. I get to visit her every day while I water the plants and fix the leaves.

I think she would have liked the spot. She liked living things to hide under rather than plastic containers. She never used the things I put out for her. She would just hide under the bushes.

It's a lovely tribute.

I've been taking care of it daily. Watering it and making sure the cats are digging into it but I imagine the holly leaf mulch is a bit of a deterrent. I found this long-haired black and white cat sitting on the shelf above the little garden this morning but the area has remained basically undisturbed.
