I have my grandchildren in the countryside near their house, with their Springer Spaniel, Beth.

This is the view from where my mother and fathers ashes are scattered, looking over Porlock Wier from beside Bossington hill.

Yes, they used to go there regularly for picnics, and mother wanted to be put there, when father passed away it was fitting to re-unite them.

Two weeks after we scattered mothers ashes I saw a print of a picture by Maurice Bishop called "Porlock Sentinel", it shows the same view with a stag and a group of hinds, the stag is standing on the exact spot we put mum. I bought it.

This is it.

Half of my dad's ashes were scattered at the base of a rose bush in his garden and the other half from the beach at Minehead as my parents are both from there. :)

:cry: :D That's a lovely painting as well and good to compare the old to the modern.

We're putting my dad's ashes in the local cemetary on Thursday - mum and dad used to go walking up by there a lot as it has a good view of the Tavy/Tamar valley but also there's a school and people walk their dogs there too so it's a quite a social place in a way :)

Oh Watchman... I am glad to see you back and WOW Stunning View!!! A true Romantic at heart... <3

I have decided to have my ashes put into a fireworks display and have them set off at my farewell party on the family property. I got the idea from a twit off of The View, but it is a Wonderful and fitting way for my remains to go. I ADORE fireworks and the 4th of July was my first date with hubby. *Aargh!! gets all sentimental and soppy* Finds Pooh and blows her nose and has a good wipe. :twisted:
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

I change mine from a snow picture taken from my youngest daughter's bedroom window earlier this month to a photo of said daughter that I took this morning.

I have a picure of an urban fairy by a fantsay artist called J Corsentino as my desktop wallpaper :) My avatar is made by the same artist too. I'll post a pic when I'm next online using my laptop (using my phone at the mo) :)
