For this week’s Gallery Tara asked to see images from our Easter. It has become a family tradition that on Easter Sunday morning we go to the garden where my dad’s ashes were scattered.
It’s an incredibly restful place, set in the middle of Richmond Park, with the most stunning collection of plants.
It was one of my dad’s favourite places and we held No 1 Son’s naming ceremony here. We used to come here when we were kids, too, and it’s always felt quite magical – we used to imagine fairies lived here.
The silver birch was a sapling when we scattered my dad’s ashes – now it’s a huge tree.
You can see the city from some parts of the park but trust me, when you’re inside the gates of this garden, you feel as though it’s a world away.
What a beautiful place! Your photos are amazing x
What a serene looking place to visit fr some calm. Made even more special by it being the final resting place for your dad. Lovely photos x

That is really lovely. I like how you not only go there every year but having the ceremony there feels like he was included in it. Great photos.

Planning to go to the Garden of Remembrance next week, to say Hi to my Mum and her Mum on the anniversary of both their losses. It’s such a silent place, I really feel close to them there.
That’s beautiful, the park, the thought, the photos and the post. I miss my dad too, his ashes are scattered on Box Hill a place he loved too – hugs x
