This Post Is For My Beautiful Sister On The Occasion Of Her Special Birthday!

24 Aug

Firstly, for my lovely little Sister who lives so far from the UK in Hawaii, a bunch of flowers to remind you of Cornish hedgerows in August, full of orange Montbretia and wild fuchsia (as well as some Sweet peas from our garden.)

Next, a lovely photo I found recently of you with one of your sons and our lovely Dad, taken around Dad’s 89th birthday.

and, almost last, a reminder of a special day that you won’t remember – your Christening. The photo was taken in the garden of Creek Vean, Pill Creek, Feock,  the first house we lived in when we moved to Cornwall. I still have the Christening dress that all of us wore in turn and Mum and her brother wore before us almost 100 years ago!

and lastly sending you all our love. Be happy, be loved and be special.

    I can so understand the feeling of loving one’s sister but not being able to see her as much…
    It is not easy living in different countries but today with communication getting easier & cheaper it is bearable.

    Lovely birthday wishes indeed…and a wonderful tradition of keeping the Christening dress for all these years!

    A lovely, loving tribute to your lucky sister. The christening dress which has survived for 100 years, what a blessing. And I love the pic of her with her son and dad, three generations of shine and bubble! My dad is 22 years in the beyond, and you can never prepare yourself for that kind of loss… lovely memories help keep them alive in our minds. Thanks, Amy
