Because Daisy Dog died so suddenly (see here), and because she was beloved by many more than James and I we organised Daisy Dog Day to give people a chance to say goodbye. We planned to plant a tree for her and then have a party.
At 3pm we set off to plant the tree where Daisy is buried in the sheep fields (it is a lime that Juliet gave us – thank you).
Then we all planted bulbs
We watered the tree and said goodbye
Although it had been a rainy morning as we finished planting Daisy Dog’s tree the sun came out…
N.B. more tomorrow on the party and planting bulbs round Twinkletoes’ tree.
Thank you to Tony for the lovely photos and to everyone for coming and helping to make it such a special day.
