How do you memorialize the budgies that crossed the rainbow bridge?
I have lost 2 budgies. The first one I wasn't sure what to do so I dug a hole in the back yard of my rental house and buried him. While I was doing that my boyfriend texted me and told me we could start a little graveyard at his house that he owns. I was sad I got the text after I buried him.
I did not expect to lose little Kismet so soon. I have had her since she was a baby (technically still a baby if you ask me). I am moving in with my boyfriend (should have more solid plans but I have been ill and we don't know what it is, possibly Lupus). So I have taken him up on the idea of a little graveyard at his house.
I wanted to mark the spot with something special so it doesn't get lost. We went looking for possible garden statues or plants. While looking we found a little kit to make a fairy garden. It would be something we would bring in during the winter and back out when it's warm.
We couldn't find a suitable pot that we liked so we picked one up that I am going to paint. I want it to be really pretty. The fairy garden kit comes with lots of little trinkets, and angel statue, a picket fence, and some other things.
We also found some other trinkety type things to add to it and will be looking for more. We also bought some plants to put in it, mostly little succulents.
I will post pictures when it's done. I was partly tempted to dig Shamu up so he can be put there, too, but I am too scared of what I will find.
So have you done anything special with your departed budgie friends? Made a nice marker or anything like that?
Michelle that sounds alright. When I lost Buster I got a nice container and lined it with a little blanket and I put Buster in the little blanket covered him up and put his Favorite bell in with him put him in the container with the lid on and I dug a hole and put him in the garden close to us he has flowers near him. I am sorry that you lost two of your budgies. Buster has little stones around where he is in our garden with his name made out of little stones.. I always have flowers there...
My Tito and a couple more pet birds are buried in a cozy corner of my house's front yard.
Here is where my Tito lies on a grassy field with flowers. They weren't in bloom at the time as I took this photo during winter time on January 17th for his first year since his passing. After his burial I also put little pieces of tile to mark the exact spot my precious boy is.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
So sad to hear about your loss of two sweet birds. Your garden idea sounds nice. I put some bulbs over where I burried Mr Mainwaring, and now every spring I will have a pretty reminder. They will stay forever in your memories for all the joy they brought.
When I lost my first budgie Billy he was buried in the back garden, to mark his little grave we planted forget-me-nots and also a small bush called pieris which flowers in April which is when he died, we never forget our loved ones and this was my way of dealing with the loss.
