From the Volunteer Park Conservatory on Capitol Hill, Seattle.
This small flower garden is the last spot where we dispersed some of my dad’s ashes. Aside from the gravesite where the bulk of his remains were buried in what is called a funeral urn ( some type of plastic container ) we spread the rest of his ashes in five different locations along the California coast as well as three inland sites. This garden is in the Mission Soledad outside of Salinas, Ca. We also placed some of his ashes in a lettuce field. He spent some time ( Jr. High/High School) in the Salinas area. His dad was a state inspector, mostly working the packing houses of Salinas. The lettuce fields in Salinas seem to go on forever, into the horizon. Just amazingly large.
I’m hoping my hosta will have bloomed by the time I get back home this coming Thursday. Going to Portland today to watch over our granddaughter- or maybe it is the other way around? Hopefully will have new material to post when I return to Seattle.
