Our Molly

Yesterday my family got together on what would've been my nan's birthday to spread her ashes and plant a flower in our garden to remember her by

Kelly was put on the case to find an appropriate rose and she did very well with finding one called Our Molly

Nan's name was Mary but known to everyone as Molly so it was perfect. It was not a sad occasion and we all smiled when my 6 year old cousin asked to say some words to nan and said "thank you for the sweets" (she had the best sweetie draw for us grandkids!)

Pin It Now!


  1. That is so lovely, what a wonderful tribute.

  2. Its so fabulous that you can remember your nan in such a lovely way.
    Such an appropriately named Rose bush also, the petals look very pretty.


  3. Hope everything went ok X

  4. Bless William for saying that. "Out of the mouths of babes" as they say! Pleased it went well though and she's certainly had a good watering today!

  7. What a lovely idea. My mum has a sweetie tin and all the grandchildren and small people always get to choose something from it... it's tradition, and as you know, is the thing they all remember her for! Such lovely words..the innocence of youth!

  8. What a totally lovely idea! The rose is perfect!

  9. What a lovely idea :)

    I know what you mean about some of the CSs some of the ones our way are posher than the posh new shops, and the things inside cost even more than if they were bought new.



  10. So sorry to hear about your nanny and what a kind thought for her you had.
    My nanny brought me up ..and she still does it!
    I'm so grateful to her..even if she hadn't a sweetie tin!
    The rose is lovely!
