Noah's Growing Garden

This morning when I dropped Harri off at school the Principal asked me if I had seen the arch over Noah's garden. I hadn't seen it yet, but it looked so beautiful.  It had been added as an addition to Noah's memorial garden to remember Aaron, and she said it represented Aaron watching over Noah, which was so beautiful.  The awesome groundsman Mr B had made it and did a fantastic job.

They have planted some jasmine so it will grow over it which will look amazing. It really is such a beautiful feature in the school, and it makes me so happy to know that Noah (and Aaron) meant so much to them, and they will never be forgotten.


I spent some time taking photos at the school today for a new website that they will be making, and when I went into Jay's old classroom I loved seeing that the kids had done some artwork on Noah's garden, and was displayed on the wall.

It is looking so beautiful, and it's so nice to see it changing as it grows. I'm sure Aaron and Noah would be smiling down as they see how beautiful it is.  The shock of Aaron passing away has worn off now, but it's still hard to believe that he's gone.  I look at this photo of him planting out Noah's memorial garden, and can't believe that there is now something in the garden to remember and represent him.
