Meadow of Memories

Event Type: In Memorium

When: 3rd July 2016

Meadow of Memories  

South Devon’s most beautiful wildflower meadow is planted within the hospice grounds in Rowcroft’s arboretum. The Meadow of Memories becomes a beautiful and tranquil place, created to celebrate the lives of those we have loved, and still love, dearly. The invitation to dedicate a flower is open to all, not just those touched by Rowcroft’s care.

We warmly invite you to dedicate one of the carefully selected flowers below:

  • Virginia Stock
  • Californian Poppy
  • Linum (Flax)
  • Calendula
  • Borage
  • Gypsophila
  • Sweet Alyssum
  • Cornflower
  • Rudbeckia

Everyone who dedicates a flower will be invited to come to a special service and family day in July, when the meadow will be at its brightest and most beautiful. 

When making a dedication, we would be very grateful if you would make a donation to Rowcroft. Your help will mean that we are able to support families to make the most of every moment they have together. If you choose to give a monthly donation, you will be ensuring that we can provide our care both now and in the future.

Photos from last year's meadow planting are available to view in our website gallery.

"A beautiful carpet of colour with memories woven into those colourful flowers, gently waving in the breeze. Each year Paul’s memory is there in that meadow."
