The ground is parched, and many of the stones seem to have gone missing; I'm thinking of re-designing the whole thing.
This is where my boys are resting, at the southern end of Haddock's. Our beautiful Labrador Monty was the first to go, then Freddy our Tabby Cat, then lastly Bok our Border Collie/Black Lab' mix.
Each are buried with their favourite toys, some snacks for their journeys, and a few things that meant something special to each of them. No fancy coffins, just wrapped in cloth and tied-up. I've kept their collars, as I couldn't bear to let those go.
I've just been weeding their plot, and I felt like a 5 year old tending the grave of a pet mouse or budgie.
Each year I plant a few flowering annuals in Spring, otherwise the big stump in the middle is an Artichoke plant.
Not exactly a great monument, but I needed a resting place where they could all be together. They were all good friends.
I think I'll buy some pukka (antique style) edging stones.
