Happy Birthday Dad...

Today would have been my dad's 81st birthday and also it's father's day so we cycled over to the cemetery this morning to take him some flowers.


My dad is nearer the back of the cemetery with my nan and my sister is at the front  and in the middle there's a  rose garden with  benches round the edge to sit on, so we took a flask of tea and had a cuppa while we "people watched", I love to see all the graves filled with fresh flowers and some had "father's day" balloons  on them.

"Happy birthday dad and a happy father's day"

I think it's great that you made such an occasion of your visit and were able to see the good in people still remembering their loved ones,

Visiting my parents grave brings a peace hard to explain.
I guess it's a closeness to loved ones. Glad you celebrate your Dads birthday. Fathers day is in September here in Australia.
