My Spot For Triton

After Triton was gone I knew I needed to still have him around.  He was with me for 14 weeks and I was holding on to a need to have some part of him around me.  I had been hit hard by this grief – compounded by the ones lost before him.

I decided on a pink hibiscus tree & an angel statue to stand in as him.   It has been a great comfort to me to be able to care for something representing him.  Looking back I wish i had chosen a less delicate flower – one that has a better chance of surviving the seasons where I live, but to me it is very representative of him.
