Visiting the Tree

July 16/17

Daughter no.2 and mum decided to pay a visit to "our" tree, hubby's and mine in the burial forrest ,located in the Ardennes. The german part is called the "Eifel" and it is an impressive landscape,a bit rough but there you still can feel the unspoiled beauty of nature.-
It had been hubbby's birthday and the first time we came back after the burial of the urn in March.
Fortunarely we have keys for the barriers, otherwise it is quite a walk from the parking lot. We had a plan but still...finding our tree among a million others, quite a task! But we made it , only had to back up the car once! 
It had been a beautiful day, the sun shining through the treetops, making everything look so friendly! There are no flowers or other memorials allowed at the trees, it is pure unkept nature and should stay that way . We brought a bottle of champagne and toasted Fred for his birthday..wherever  he is now...and the tree got a glass too!  Ask me if I could feel Fred's presence......I still try to figure that out. 
So we said goodbye till next time and it does not bother me that one day it will be my visit for keeps.that is the way of life and the end of it.
