A Visit to Celia’s Rainbow Garden

I just spent some meaningful, touching and most interesting time walking through a botanical and memorial garden near the Quartzsite, Arizona Town Park. In my time as our family genealogist I’ve walked through a number of cemeteries, but I don’t recall one that was quite as moving as this.

To read the background of Celia’s 8-1/2 years of life, here’s the story direct from her mother,

As the following photos will show in some small degree, the garden has grown from a method to honor the memory of a special little girl, into a very large collection of tributes, remembrances and special items to lovingly remember dozens of loved ones.

The path through the gardens and, the individual sections, fittingly, are outlined in stones and rocks; this is Quartzsite after all. Many of the plants, bushes and trees are labeled. The heartfelt personal touches are what made this a moving experience, however. See if you don’t agree (tap on an image to enlarge).
