Dad passed away in Limaria on 1st February 2023. He is survived and remembered by his family members in the UK, South Africa and Spain. I’ll always miss his stories, charisma and words of wisdom.

It’s lovely to support local trees and to have a space where we can remember him. I wish that I could have shown him this beautiful place.

Remembering mum

Published July 11, 2023 by

It’s been 17 years this year since we lost mum. It’s taken this long to get round to finding the right way to remember her outside of the memories we have of her.

A huge motivation for this is my seven year old daughter Pearl who never met her, keeps asking about her and as mum was cremated we don’t have somewhere to go to remember her or pay respects.

I grew up in a flat on Halmyre Street close to Leith Links park and we moved away when my mum married her husband Ian. If there is anywhere in the world mum was at home it was Edinburgh so this is the perfect spot for her memory.

Born in Sheffield but bred in Edinburgh. A wonderful man who never forgot his roots despite living south of the border for many years. A fitting tree memorial & a return to your childhood playground & treasured family memories. Your garden was a joy to you, May this tree provide much pleasure to others onwards into the future.

Sheila Cooper Memorial

Published June 3, 2023 by

This tree is a memorial to the life and works of Sheila Elizabeth Cooper. Sheila was a Canadian/American woman and mother of Calli Middleton, who was an exceptional saxophonist, singer and composer as well as a wonderful human being. Her life was dedicated to personal growth, love and family, motherhood, music and her friendships and relationships. She will be remembered not only through her music but her writings and the extraordinary spiritual development she found at the end of her rich and intense life.

“Il Colonnello” was the lighthouse of our family. He dedicated his whole life to his wife, children and grandchildren and took care of his vineyard and olive grove to make wine and oil he gifted to friends and family. His love fertilised the soil as well as our own roots. Keep enlightening our way and we won’t be lost.

Prince o’ Porty

Lucas Adamson loved to woof, sniff, strut his stuff and run free in Abercorn Park. He was an awfy friendly soul and his waggy tail and healing ways earned him many pals and legend status.
He loved a treat in life and is now treating the park to a new tree and new life whilst he now runs free above the clouds.

The most alive, sunny, big hearted man I ever met. Seb loved being outside and most dearly loved being with his family and friends, dancing, drinking wine, playing with the children, talking and laughing. He missed the hills looking across to Rome but loved Edinburgh and wee Dunbar’s Close Garden, sitting in the summer mornings doing the crossword badly whilst drinking a good coffee. He would heartily approve of supporting the trees. I miss him every minute. Mio marito, TAS, tesoro.

My Dad was born and bred in Edinburgh and although he left he never forgot his roots and we would return many times to visit and listen to his stories about his past. I am delighted to have adopted a tree in his memory and I know he would have loved this idea.

Fill not your heart with pain and sorrow,
but remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,
I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt and given me relief.

So dry your eyes and remember me
not as I am now, but as I use to be.

Because I will remember you all and look on with a smile,
Understand, in your hearts, I’ve only gone to rest a little while.
As long as I have the love of each of you,
I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.
