life force

During the summer holidays in 2012, Big M and I completely dug up our front garden. We laid a membrane and then Mr TOPP piled a tonne of pebbles on top.

The perfect, low maintenance front garden.

Six months later, as my mum lay terminally ill, a single solitary tulip pushed it’s way through the membrane, through the tonne of pebbles.

A few days before she died, I showed my mum a picture of it. She smiled and said that it just shows the power of the Life Force.

Yesterday was three years since she died.

Yesterday that single solitary tulip flowered.

You were right Mum. The life force is strong.
