A place of memories

The Memory Tree
People find gardens useful for all sorts of sustain their body with exercise, growing fruit and vegetables, fresh air...or to sustain their minds and souls with peace, uplifting views and soothing bird song.  This year we have created a special corner of the garden dedicated to a 'Memory Tree'.

View from the Memory Tree

It is a quiet spot with a beautiful gnarled Acer and in return for a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support you can dedicate a copper tag to a particular memory.  People have written all sorts of things on the tags both sad and happy; special dates, names, words, places.
Memories enjoying the morning sun

The tags make an usual 'fruit' for the tree and glitter away in the autumn sun.  Nearby we have used part of a horse chestnut that came down last winter, to form a bench for those who wish to spend a moment with their memory...or just enjoy the view!
