This weekend the sunshine has been shining and we have all had a strong urge to go and make Rhianna’s grave a little bit prettier for the sun to shine on.
I found her grave really difficult over the winter months, it is a really hard place to go to at the best of times. But when it is dark and clouding and raining it is even harder to go. I hate going when it is so horrible, I don’t want to be seeing Rhianna’s grave in the horrible weather.
So as soon as the weather changed and the sun was shining we all felt a bit happier going up there and made a real effort to put the most gorgeous flowers that we could find up there.
Rhianna’s Auntie brought her some gorgeous fake pink flowers a while ago, and the way they were set out was not right for Rhianna. So Saturday I sat down and cut the stems and rearranged the flowers into her flower holder. It took me over an hour to prepare but I really wanted them to be just right. By the end of it I was really happy with what I had made.
I took them up to Rhianna’s grave and they looked beautiful in the sun and stood out like no other flowers up there. And it made all the difference to her grave straight away.
As soon as I got home, Baba’s Nanny brought some daffodils over that Baba had insisted on buying for Rhianna earlier in the day. So another couple of hours followed, while I rearranged them and cut them and put them all into an oasis to take up to Rhianna the next day.
On Sunday we took the daffodils up and they were the perfect match with her pink flowers.
